The 1274 Superstar 1.2 Short features all the controls of the larger 1275 Superstar, but in a more compact form factor and with a smaller diameter front lens. As a short throw, the 1274 is designed optically for throws up to more than 100'. The followspot is capable of beam widths from headshots to two-person circles or greater in much of its optimum operating range. The top-mounted controls include a fader, nichrome iris, and horizontal chopping shutters, while a single lever trombone intensifies the beam as the diameter is reduced. An internal self-cancelling six-color boomerang is included, as is magnetic ballast and folding stand.
