I'm doing a little job coming up where the client has told us they usually light with 'mandarin' lights.

To be exact they said they usually use 3-to-6 'mandarin' lights, with filters and/or Chimera.

Chimera I understand, but I am curious if anyone knows what kind of light a Mandarin light is?

Thank you,

it's the red head...(800w tungsten open face).
mandarine is the french name of some orange species, and it's called mandarine due to it's shape and orange color.
