Hive’s Bee1000 is the brightest light you can plug into any wall socket. Safe to use on a standard US 15amp circuit, but requiring only 9.5amps, two Bee1000s, can be plugged into a 120V, 20amp circuit. The Bee1000 has a full spectrum 98CRI with daylight colour temperature adjustable between 4500 – 6500K. Like all Hive Lighting products, the Bee1000 is completely flicker free at any frame rate, shutter angle or combination, making it the perfect light for all slow motion “high speed” production.
Hive Lighting’s Bee1000 is a single point source 1000W plasma bulb, perfect for use in a large variety of light modifiers, especially square, rectangular and octagonal soft boxes. It is also perfect for use in parabolic softboxes like those made by Hensel, Westcott, Profoto and a variety of other manufacturers. The same speed rings used for Hive Lighting’s Bee250 can also be used on the new Bee1000.
The Bee1000 weighs only 15lbs in the head, and uses 13.5” accessories. It has a dual “baby” receiver / “junior” pin and can be used on stands with a 16mm (5/8”) “baby” pin or a 28.5mm (1 1/8”) junior receiver.
