Kino Flo 4Bank Overview
The 4Bank Select 4′ 1-Light Kit from Kino Flo is a broad, diffuse light source that’s equally at home in the studio or on the road. The kit includes the 4′, 4-lamp 4Bank fixture, multi-voltage high output ballast, lollipop mount with 5/8″ receiver, 90 degree grid, lamp case and a padded carrying case with shoulder strap.
The reintroduced 4Bank is a 4-lamp fixture that draws only 2.6A @ 120 VAC yet outputs the equivalent of a 1,000W traditional softlight. Barndoors are built into the 4Bank to control the light output and a 90 degree grid is included for further control. The 11.5 lb fixture is light enough to be taped or nailed to a wall or use the included long-neck lollipop mount with 5/8″ receiver for traditional light stand support. Convenience features include color coded connectors. Separately purchased True Match lamps ensure a CRI rating of 95.
The BAL-427 ballast can run the 4′ or 2′ 4Bank fixtures and the front panel has individual on/off control for each lamp. It’s lighter weight than its predecessor, yet retains all the performance features of the previous model. The unit is flicker-free and dead quiet when running, while HO (High Output) switching sends the optimal current to the lamp head so that it’s as bright as possible. The BAL-427 is rated 100-240 VAC for worldwide use.
