This is a B&H exclusive Lowel Tota-light Two-Light Kit with umbrellas, light stands and NO case. Compact, rugged and versatile, the broad-throw Tota-light can be used with its umbrella or gel frame and diffusion as a soft key light, fill light, or backlight.

Tota-lights are also widely used for photographic copy work.

When fitted with an EMD 750W bulb, each Tota-light will emit a beam of 41 footcandles with the barndoors at normal position and 34 footcandles with the barndoors at 180° position, from a distance of 10 ft (3 m).

Add bulbs of your choice of 300W, 500W or 750W. Bulbs for 220-240 volts, and plug adapters are also available.

    I had never used professional lighting like this. The instructions for setup and use were easy to understand. The product was easy to set up and it folds up into a small portable size for travel. I did not get the one with the carry case, but found a suitable carry bag for it. Come with cages to go around the lights to prevent glass from hitting you in the case of bulb shatter. They get very warm, but if turned off for breaks seem to be okay.

    I purchased the same tota Light kit 5 or six years ago and the Lamps are identical with exception of the switch on the cord. The switches seem to be a lower quality. The main issue I had was concerning the Impact Light Stands. The materials used are cheap and do not equal the ones that I purchased just a few years ago. I feel that I paid to much for the kit with the quality of the Light stands in question.

      Comments about Lowel Tota-light Two-Light Kit:

      These are nice lights. They heat up a lot, but the amount of light output and cost far out weighs the extra cool off time. They are nice and small and still put out lots of good light. A good defuser or soft box is recommended as the light is fairly harsh. The stands are very nice and the bag is well constructed. The bag has a lot of extra room in it if you wanted to used it for more stands or misc. light gear.

          This is a great little kit for on the go video or photo applications. Plenty of power and light weight. I've use them both indoors and outdoors for video mainly and they are a great set of lights for interviews and small productions.

              What can I say other than, if you've worked with Tota Lights before, you know what you're getting. These are great workhorse lights. Worked well in lighting a green screen. They run hot, so allow enough time for them to cool down. Can't beat these old standbys, and particularly not for the price.

              I use the product for wedding videos, usually the lighting is terrible when it comes time for dancing part of the night so i use the tota lights to help out. The provide a nice light and I can pick up a clean shot.
              Sometimes the light can be distracting because they are so bright but you have to place them properly so that they don't ruin the mood of the event as well be annoyance for the guests.

                    Lights are very handy to use. puts a nice warm soft effect on subject, if you bounce it, But every good things comes with 1 or 2 things that you wouldn't like....
                    STANDS!!! they are VERY LIGHT and not too high... We use these lights at banquet halls and very ofter people bump into them and these stands are so light if any one passes by they fall easily. i Had to bud extra sand bags to put a hold on them. other then that i am happy with lights.

                      Just a great kit, the stands extend to the sky and the air cushioning is quite nice, especially to prevent a quick drop resulting in a broken bulb. The lights are incredibly powerful and produce beautiful and professional results.

                      These lights worked just fine for my purpose, which was photographing artwork for a friend. I still need to try them out for portraits. Somehow the quantity went wrong in my order so I only ended up receiving one bulb. I went to a home improvement store in the area and bought bulbs for each of my two lights. They were not frosted, but worked fine.

                        Comments about Lowel Tota-light Two-Light Kit:

                        This is my first lighting kit that I have purchased, and so far I have been very satisfied. I needed something that was small, portable, and easy to assemble and disassemble. With very little effort I was able to connect the Tota lights to the Tota stands, install the umbrella, and begin using the lights. Of great note is the air cushioned stands that do not "drop" when you loosen the extensions. This provides some back up to prevent the light from falling quickly when you are disassembling at the end of the shoot. I found that using 750W bulbs were a bit too powerful for my talking head interviews. I switched to 500W (and in one case 300W) for my key light and obtained the look I desired. I have not tried to light a large area (perhaps for chroma keying purposes), but I imagine that the 750W bulbs would work excellently for this. With any wattage the lights get very hot, but this is well documented and expected.One small concern was installing the bulb/lamp into the Tota light. The springs are very stiff and installing the bulb takes quite a bit of pushing. At first I was concerned that pushing too hard would damage the bulb, so I was hesitant in pushing. After installing the bulb though I can see that my concerns were due to my inexperience with this light and the tight springs are both normal and necessary.

                        These continuous hot lights are great. They have a warm tone and work well for intimate sets. They do add a lot of heat so be warned, a sitting could get steamy. Overall, this kit is a great value.

                          These lights really get rid of reflective and raking light on oil paintings, which are very difficult to capture.

                                As a college student with very little money at times, these lights were a brilliant buy for me. The setup for these lights is very simple. After placing the bulbs inside the heads, it really only takes moments to set the lights up. Plus, the lights are very reliable. I honestly have no legitimate complaints on this setup for the money I spent.

                                      I found these lights were very effective for filming in an artists studio, which was a small, tight shed converted to studio. Only one outlet with very limited space. My one concern is that they're very very hot. But overall, they worked well.

                                      Great kit, very portable. Very versatile, can be used in studio settings and on location. I used both lights with 750w EMD lamps, and it didn't blow the circuit in the residence where I was shooting. The lights were quite hot by the end of the shoot, but cooled down quickly. All pieces of the kit were very well made and sturdy. This is a wonderful light kit to start with and very reasonably priced.
