            Outstanding soft light fixture. Ideal for lighting a large green screen. Ours is 20' wide by 12' tall with two side legs of 12' each. We use three on the main wall and two on the sides. All are on dimmers and they make a perfect key background.

            Comments about Altman Soft-Lite Tungsten Light - 2000 Watts (120-240VAC):

            I use this light for primarily "blowing out" the background for white or green screening. For white you need 2 bulbs one is not enough. What I would like further is a dial back switch so I can adjust the range. Its so bright that I must move client forward so the sweet spot of the light is right. Im using this primarily in the second zone of lighting the background. It is also a very HOT light so be careful when handling. I also wish I could mount it sideways to deflect light at a different angle.

              Comments about Altman Soft-Lite Tungsten Light - 2000 Watts (120-240VAC):

              Everything was just as described - Huge expanse of soft but powerful light. Amazing as filler light on the outside wedding shots, and gorgeous inside for all 'reception' shots. Completely even light on large groups. I had been warned by other photographer's not to buy the inexpensive lights that melt after one use. This was worth every penny - even transporting this very large light on the plane was well worth it (fit in a large duffle with foam wrap.) Used the light on and off for 6 hours - lights are still burning bright. Does require a 6' tripod - I used a speaker tripod - we modified a 'cap' to place on the top of the tripod pole and then screw into the light. Small camera tripod will not hold it, will not be high enough.
