    Arri 150 works great on small sets

    By Dylan Grzanic

    from Boise, Idaho

    Comments about Arri 150 Watt Tungsten Fresnel Light (120VAC):

    We bought this light to round out our set up of some soft boxes and higher wattage fresnel's. It worked fantastically and provided a great small source of light for providing additional accents into a scene. 150 watts is perfect for small room lighting and when paired with a silk in front can be a great compact main light.

    The best in all purpose tungsten

    By Jon

    from Brooklyn

    Comments about Arri 150 Watt Tungsten Fresnel Light (120VAC):

    These fresnels (150, 350, 650 and 1K) are the best all around tungsten units available. Beautiful quality of light, durable, long lasting and I use them all the time. I own a kit and recently added a 150 to have something small, light and less bright. I own a lot of ARRI gear (lights, camera AKS, Alexa) and it's all outstanding. Like Apple or Leica quality.

        Arri is always a consistent and great product... the only thing I was disappointed about was the fact that the light did not come with barn doors. I suppose I should have read the details, but it seems to me that it should be a given.

        Comments about Arri 150 Watt Tungsten Fresnel Light (120VAC):

        I use this for key, fill, hairlight, or backlight for DSLR/C100 interviews depending on the amount of light I want to throw and number of lights I'm using. Light enough to easily put on a c-stand arm with a baby pin so you can mount it about anywhere you can think of.

        Three of these, with some diffusion, scrims or bounce on the fill are perfect for a small interview kit when you can control the lighting and are using DSLR type sensors that don't need much light. If there's a lot of ambient light, you need to step up to the 300 or 650 watt Arris for key, and then probably start using some neutral density filters on the lenses. In that situation the Arri 150 still works great for fill or hair.

            I use this light mostly as a hair light or to hilight a product or item in the background. Excellent quality, versatile. Small, packs easily. I use a dimmer as necessary to control levels. Do use the barndoors - necessary to control spill.

            Comments about Arri 150 Watt Tungsten Fresnel Light (120VAC):

            I needed a small, easy "utility" light. Arri gear, in general, is quality, and this light is no exception. It's perfect for a back kicker, an overhead pool to draw attention to a certain part of the frame, or to use as a source for a practical lamp. The 150s are the scalpels of the industry. They can't dim on their own, but with the Impact D1000 dimmer it's unbeatable. I brought this on an independent shoot and it saved many shots. Also, skin loves tungsten light.

            • Interview Hairback Light

            Comments about Arri 150 Watt Tungsten Fresnel Light (120VAC):

            Great addition for a lightweight travel interview lighting kit. I use this primarily as a hair light or to add interest to a background. You can't beat the light quality from a fresnel lens. You always need at LEAST one hard light in your interview kit. 150w isn't that bright but perfect for talking heads interviews. The ability to spot and flood the light as well as shape it with barn-doors is essential to having a hard light. If you can't afford the Dedolight 150 (which is brighter than this light but roughly the same size) this is the light for you.

                Comments about Arri 150 Watt Tungsten Fresnel Light (120VAC):

                I always wanted one of these... 20 yrs ago in film school I did a lot of stop motion work and always wanted a smaller light than little tweenies...

                Now, I wanted it as a hair light...basically power didn't matter too much, it was just that the lighter and smaller the light, the quicker it is to give dark haired people that little kick (especially if the background is dark)---this is for anything, I work on features, music videos, and docs...)

                Well, sensors are so much more powerful than the film stocks from back in the day, wow! This is so much more powerful now. In a pinch, I could use it as a key (with lots of diffusion) for an interview.

                It cools really well, and the flood/spot control is really smooth (as to be expected from Arri), and this is just one of the little, but hugely important differences between this light and cheapie redheads.

                Comments about Arri 150 Watt Tungsten Fresnel Light (120VAC):

                This is my first excursion into the world of serious studio lighting. For my simple home studio for selling my glass art on ETSY, this was the perfect investment. The size and weight are suitable to a lightweight stand & arm. The small lens keeps glare to a minimum, working in a confined area. The focusing action by itself makes a noticeable difference - the barn door and snoot are well-made and indispensable for my needs.

                More power would have been nice, but with my setup, I do not think it would be worth the extra size, weight and heat with the 300 watt model - maybe for larger subjects and/or more general purpose applications, but that's not what I currently do.

                I am very impressed with the construction, glad I didn't skimp on some flimsy cheaper unit.

                      In addition to use it for photos, this light brings sunshine to my living room in cold and cloudy days.

                      Arri ESP 150w is Ushio ESP 150w (MFG Code 1000362) with an Arri label. Ushio ESP is about $10 on the internet.

                      GE ESP 150w does NOT fit, the contact points are about 2mm longer than Ushio and cannot be used for this light.

                            light works great. I would recommend getting a snoot for more control. Light is even. Solid construction.

                              I use these Arri Fresnel light for short films, music videos and interviews. They are light weights and easy/smooth to focus.

                                Great little spot. Good for fill or spot accent light. Rugged case. Get the snoot accessory.

                                  A little fresnel, but with the quality from Arri.

                                  Im starting a production company and I needed perfessional lights that wont let me down. Well this light is perfect as a key with a gel on it or even as a hair light.
