Because of the parabolic reflectors, flagging and cutting are difficult close to the light. Flags cast bizarre symmetrical shadows.

The skypan is used primarily when just raw power is needed over a fairly large area, such as lighting a large backdrop. There is only one flavor of skypan but either a 5K bulb (DPY) or a 2K bulb (CYX) bulb can be used in it. When ordering, don’t forget to specify bulb size and remember that this will affect your cable order and your power considerations. Only two basic accessories are available for the skypan: a skirt that does control some of the side spill (and is useful for keeping direct hits out of the lens) and a gel frame.
