The BMFL FollowSpot takes advantage of its wide 160 mm front lens and a high CRI 1700W lamp. With a custom light source designed for Robe it produces an astounding 251.000 lux at 5 metres and has a wide zoom range of 5° to 45° with precise focusing. Manually or remotely controllable features include smooth color mixing and CTO flags, two color wheels, multiple variable frost filters, focus, zoom and quick pulsing iris.
