Paglight C6 Professional 6V Lighting Kit Instruction Manual CONTENTS SECTION PAGE 1 INTRODUCTION 2 2 PAGLIGHT C6 8 3 C6 POWER PACK 14 4 C6 POWER CHARGER 15 5 SERVICE & WARRANTY 17 1 SECTION 1 INTRODUCTION PAG Stands for Broadcast Quality PAG Ltd. is a British company, that has been designing and manufacturing high quality equipment for the film and television industries for 40 years. In that time many PAG products have broken technical boundaries and set new standards, worldwide. The limited choice of high-quality, on-board camera lighting for hand-held camcorders prompted PAG to develop a miniaturised version of its professional Paglight. Paglight is a camera-top light that can be seen in action regularly on TV news bulletins all over the world. Professional Features The Paglight C6 incorporates many features of the larger 12V Paglight, including a focusable beam angle, and a patented system that makes lamp-changing quick and easy. The C6 is designed to complement available light as a ‘fill’ or ‘front light’. It will add vibrancy to the colour in your images, bring them out of the shadows, and give your videos that professional touch. Fully Focusable The light output is fully-focusable. A lever mechanism on each side of the lamp head provides a smooth transition from spot (narrow angle) to flood (wide angle). The ability to change the beam angle allows you to compensate for light loss over distance. PAG’s Unique Plug-in Lamp Holder System The Paglight C6 features a patented plug-in lamp holder system that makes fitting a lamp (bulb) quick and easy. The Paglight C6 is supplied with a plug-in lamp holder and a 20W 6V, G4-size tungsten halogen lamp (10W, 20W and 30W lamps are available). Additional lamp holders enable change between lamps of varying wattages, quickly and easily, without directly handling the lamp (see Fig. 1). When not in use, lamp holders can be stored in their heat-resistant polymer lamp protector. 2 Fig. 1 Professional Accessories The accessory holding ring fits onto the front of the Paglight C6. It accommodates a range of accessories: a frosted diffuser, a dichroic filter and barndoors. The accessory ring can be rotated and secured in the desired position. Diffuser When filming in subdued light conditions, or poor daylight, it is all too easy to over-light your subject. In order to avoid this you can use the frosted diffuser to soften the light. You can also use it 3 to soften the harsh shadows caused by a bright light source, such as direct sunlight. The spot-and-flood facility helps give you further control over light intensity. Dichroic Filter When supplementing daylight with your Paglight C6, the colour temperature must be corrected to match daylight. You can do this by using the dichroic filter to raise the colour temperature of the light output from 3200°K (halogen) to 5600°K (daylight). Colour temperature is a measurement of the colour of light, not the brightness. Barn Doors The barn doors can be used to flag off unwanted light. When folded across the face of the reflector they also act as protectors for the glass filters, when the light is not in use. Cool Running The Paglight C6 is constructed from a glass-reinforced engineering polymer that provides impact-resistance and temperature stability (see Fig. 2). The combination of this modern material and the patented heat dissipation system ensures the Paglight C6 is coolrunning and comfortable to handle, at all times. Paglight C6 Heat Dissipation System Reg. Des. No. 2071515 Patent No. 2335027 Fig. 2 4 Perfect Positioning The support base of the lamp head is a multi-directional mounting which allows the light to be adjusted vertically and horizontally. The pivot points are friction-adjustable to maintain the desired position in all situations of use. Mounting The Paglight C6 Kit is supplied with a square shoe plate, allowing the unit to be mounted to camcorders with an accessory shoe. The light base incorporates a ¼” Whitworth bush that enables it to be used with other PAG mounting options, such as a ¼” Whitworth stud adaptor (Model 9971), a handle for hand-held operation (Model 9906) and a camera clamp for mounting to non-standard fittings (Model 9807). The Paglight C6 base is fitted with a flying lead terminated with a professional-quality connector, incorporating gold-plated contacts, for connection to the C6 Power Pack. PAG C6 Power Pack Paglight C6 is powered from its own 6V 8Ah battery, supplied as part of the kit. This rechargeable Ni-MH battery, weighing little more than 1kg, has a detachable shoulder strap. The battery, when fully charged, will provide 2 hours and 35 minutes run-time with a 20W lamp. An additional battery will enable you to shoot for a whole day. A belt clip (Model 1022) can be used in place of the shoulder strap. Once fitted to the back of the battery it can be worn on your trouser waistband or belt. PAG C6 Power Charger A battery charger is supplied that will charge the battery in three to four hours, from fully discharged. It will automatically recover the battery, prior to fast-charging, if the battery has been deeply discharged. The charger also provides a maintenance top-up charge after full charge. These automatic functions are indicated by a single LED. The charger has an interchangeable AC power plug. UK, Euro, US/Japan and Australia plug options are available. 5 Accessory/Extender Arm (Model 1020) This short extender arm can be fitted to the accessory shoe of the camcorder. It incorporates two accessory shoes that allow both the Paglight C6 and a microphone to be mounted to the camcorder. Accessory Mounting Bracket (Model 1021) For camcorders without an accessory shoe PAG provides an Accessory Mounting Bracket that can be fitted to the 1/4” Whit. bush on the base of the camcorder. It incorporates two accessory shoes that allow both the Paglight C6 and a microphone to be mounted to the camcorder. Softlight Diffuser and Filter Kit (Model 9983) This filter holding assembly fits onto the barn doors. The kit incorporates two softlight diffuser screens and 6 colour filters that enable you to create supersoft lighting or colour lighting effects. 6V DC Adaptors With the aid of a PAG DC Adaptor Model 1023/- the 6V output of the C6 PowerPack can be boosted to power both the 6V Paglight and a variety of hand-held camcorders. 1023/01 1023/02 1023/03 1023/04 1023/05 for for for for for Canon XL1, XL2, XL-H1.

DO NOT CONNECT TO INCORRECT SUPPLIES. The Paglight C6 has been specifically designed as a 6V unit and on no account should any attempt be made to ‘convert’ it for use with 12V supplies. Such attempts will irreversibly damage the Paglight C6 and invalidate the warranty. Paglight C6 is designed for use with 10W, 20W and 30W, 6V, G4-sized lamps only. A 6V 20W lamp is included in this kit. Replacement 6V 20W, 10W and 30W lamps are available from PAG Ltd. The Paglight C6 can be used in light rain and moderately damp environments. However, the internal lamp operates at high temperatures, and direct contact with water should be avoided. The Paglight C6 is not intended for any use other than video lighting purposes. This product should be kept out of the reach of children. Do not disassemble. Incorrect reassembly may result in a safety hazard. Do not operate if the fixed safety glass is cracked or broken. The Paglight C6 will become warm in use. Do not leave it switched on while unattended. Do not obstruct the cooling vents or operate near combustible materials. Allow the light to cool before storage. 8 Switch-off the Paglight C6 before removing or replacing the plug-in lamp holder. Allow the lamp to cool before removing it from the lamp holder. Do not handle the lamp envelope directly. If it is touched inadvertently, clean it with a lint-free cloth moistened with methylated spirit. SPECIFICATION: Type: Halogen capsule. Voltage: Nominal 6V. Watts: 20W (10W and 30W available as accessories). Colour Temperature: 3200°K at 6V (5600°K when using dichroic filter). Base: Type G4. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS: Plug-in Lampholder System The Paglight C6 features a unique plug-in lampholder system that enables lamp wattage variants to be changed without touching the lamp itself. The lamp holder with lamp can be stored in its heat resistant polymer lamp protector. Removing the Lampholder IMPORTANT: First switch-off the Paglight C6. Gently press and turn the lamp holder anti-clockwise and carefully withdraw it from the rear of the unit. Changing the Lamp Remember that the lamp itself may remain hot for a considerable period after being extinguished. It is advisable to use a cloth to remove a failed lamp. The bi-pin lamp is a push fit into the lamp holder. Do not twist or bend the legs when removing or replacing. Do not handle the lamp envelope directly. If it is touched inadvertently, clean it with a lint-free cloth moistened with methylated spirit. Finger marks cause blackening of the glass, and in turn hot spots, which lead to a reduction in life and possible rupture of the glass. For users who change lamp wattages frequently it is recommended that a lamp holder is purchased for each wattage variant. 9 The Lamphead The lamphead incorporates a tilting facility with a friction locking mechanism. From the horizontal position, the lamp head can be angled downwards by 15 degrees, and upwards by 60 degrees. Focussing Focussing is provided by a lever on each side of the lamp body, and is continuously variable from narrow to wide angle, thereby increasing or decreasing light intensity. Cool-Running The lamp head is designed around a patented heat dissipation system, which allows external parts of the light to operate at a far lower temperature than other models currently on the market. However, the light should not be operated with the barn doors fully closed. A special toughened, heatproof safety glass is provided at the front of the light, for protection. Never operate the light if this glass is broken or missing. Do not operate the light in the vicinity of highly combustible materials, especially explosive heavy vapours. Never leave the light turned on while unattended. Do not obstruct the airflow through the cooling vanes. The Paglight C6 Base The base incorporates a captive locking mechanism. A standard ¼” Whitworth thread in the base of the Paglight C6 enables, amongst other things, a square shoe plate to be fitted (included). This enables the Paglight C6 to be fitted directly to any camera equipped with an accessory shoe. Always tighten the locking wheel firmly to secure the base, while retaining the swivelling facility. Barn Doors & Filters The rotatable accessory ring fits onto the front of the light, and is supplied with two snap-in filters and two barn doors. The accessory ring can be adjusted to rotate or locked in position with the knurled screw. To remove the accessory ring, unscrew the knurled locking screw completely, and expand the ring over the front rim of 10 the light. Barn doors and filters are a snap-fit onto the accessory ring, and may be assembled in any permutation. To remove, pull firmly forwards from the mounting lugs. Do not twist. Fitting is the reverse of this procedure. The barndoors and filters feature screws to adjust the tension of the hinges. 11 SECTION 3 C6 POWER PACK SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS: In the interest of safety, and the protection of our environment, please read and observe the following health and safety information.
