The MG1200Bi boasts a remarkable bi-colour range, with a colour temperature range spanning from 2800K to 6500K.

Whether you’re shooting a scene for your next film, portraits, or larger product shoots this light offers the flexibility you need to achieve your desired look.
With a maximum power output of 1400W, the MG1200Bi provides an abundance of light, ensuring your subjects are beautifully lit in any setting. Its brightness range can be adjusted from 0% to 100%, allowing for precise control over the intensity of your lighting.
Colour accuracy at this power is incredibly important, with smaller lighting set-up needed to mix in with the more powerful illumination, and here the MG1200Bi delivers. With an average CRI (Color Rendering Index) and TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index) of greater than 96, this light ensures that your subjects are depicted with exceptional realism.

For added convenience, a 2.4G Remote Control offers a wireless solution for controlling your lighting from distances of up to 100 meters.
Firmware upgrades are easy with the Type-A USB Port, and the U-type bracket allows for a full 360-degree angle adjustment, ensuring you can position the light precisely where you need it.
