You can not go wrong with a Diva 400 for the purpose you specify, however there is no doubt that the 400 Joker is a more versatile light; you can use it as a strong soft daylight source in the Chimera or as a hard key with the varios par lenses. In addition it can be used to light a back wall or even punch through a window. For this versatility you are going to pay more, about three or four times more, but if lighting is your business, ultimately you will pay for it, and then it turns into a profit center.

Owning lighting equipment is very much like a drug habit; most folks start with a tungsten kit light set and grow to owning kinos, hmi's and entertainment lights like Source Fours. Add in the grip equipment, cable package and even a generator set and you'll get the idea. Of course you'll need a truck to carry your kit to location and/or a sound stage to make best use of your lighting stash.
