A TV studio where I live moved out from their building into a new one a year ago. They sold everything in the studio to the owner of the building. To make a long story short they where going to sell the lamps that was inside the studio so I went there looking. When I asked for stands the janitor answered that there where som stands and lamps that where stored downstairs and that I could have for free because it was just junk that they where going to throw away later the same day. When I entered the room and saw 3 1200w HMI´s complete with ballasts, barndoors, cables, extension cables and one extra bulb. I managed to keep a straight face so now this "junk" is inside my apartment. I tested all of the lamps and they work flawless and are very quiet. The fixtures had a runtime of 200h, 800h, 1000h. As mentioned in the topic the lamps are Quartz Color Sirio Mark2 1200w (2070) the ballasts are marked (2077). If anyone have any information about theese fixtures please share.

Yeah it´s the first time I´ve been this lucky. Theese will do fine on low budget gigs, on the last shortfilm I shot I had to take out all the HMIs from my list to get it in under budget.
