What makes the broncolor Para different?

The magic of parabolic lighting

There are many modifiers on the market that claim to be ‘parabolic’ in shape, but very few of them actually are.

True parabolic lights produce a beautiful, sparkly light which is very flattering when it comes to skin tone and ideal for bringing out the detail in textures. The shape and reflective properties of the modifier allow for great control over the focus and contrast produced by the light — one of the main advantages of these modifiers.

Comparing the Para with alternative solutions

Unmatchable 3D effect

The Para system convinces with an incredible three-dimensional light, especially when used in a defocused position. Where does this extraordinary three-dimensional light characteristic come from?

The light is reflected in the 24 segments of the Para and focused depending on the position of the focusing tube. The strongest luminosity is in the centre of the motive you like to shoot. The luminosity decreases from this point in all directions; at the edge of the motive only half of the light hits the surface. Thanks to this, a white dress, for instance, against a white background can be perfectly separated.

Despite its size, a Para is not a soft light. The typical Para light has no diffusion and no contrast-reducing light close to the shooting axis as known from other larger light shapers. The unique Para product design enables the distinctive and very beautiful skin texture in portraits.
