For a booklight scenario, which of these 2 would you recommend?
1. Joker Bug 800W
Seems pretty pricey and lower output than the Arri below, bulbs are pretty expensive too. There is a 1600W version but that's a big step up price wise. Seems relatively compact and light and it is a PAR.
Would you say that when used as a bounce light it would be more efficient than a fresnel?
i.e. would the 800W joker have similar output when bounced off beadboard to the Arri 1200W fresnel?
2. Arri 1200W HMI Fresnel.
More power than the Joker but much bigger. Also a little more expensive but worth it to get some extra juice for use in certain daylight situations.
Which of these 2 would be more useful?
Output is a big deal but interested to hear any real world experiences with the lights.
