This is a Lowel DV Core 250 Kit, LB30 Soft Case, 1000 watt, three-light kit. It includes three of Lowel's most popular fixtures, as well as accessories, stands and a soft kit case.

The Rifa-lite EX 44 is a compact, self-contained, 250W, collapsible, tungsten/halogen softlight that uses the unique umbrella-like Rifa design allowing for a quick set-up. It has a changeable socket to allow use of other types of bulbs, including fluorescent. Bathe almost anything in soft light, from talking heads to table-top stills. It's the perfect complement to today's compact, light-sensitive digital cameras and film stocks.

With its high-intensity #2 reflector & prismatic glass, the tiny focusable Pro-light is more efficient than a Fresnel of equal wattage, yet it gives an exquisite even light, with Fresnel-like shadow quality. It can be used as a low-level key or accent light, fill light (with diffusion), or backlight.

Compact, rugged and versatile, the broad-throw V-light is a Lowel favorite. It can be used with its umbrella or gel-frame and diffusion as a soft key, fill, or backlight. With its adjustable reflectors, it can be a smooth and even background light, or point it at the ceiling to raise the ambient (base) light level of a room. It's also handy for photographic copy work.

          Comments about Lowel DV Core 250 Kit, LB30 Soft Case:

          I ordered this light equipment from Europe. When I got it, before use, I have to change the electric hook-ups and the bulbs. In Europe it is 230 V instead of the American 110 V. And it was not easy to find a company who sell the lamps in a 230V version. When you compare the prices between America and Europe, the bulbs in Europe are a very expensive. The V1-240/250 for the V-light costs 19 Euro and the Osram GLF 235 W, G5.3 NAED 54460 Halogen Display/optic lamp more than 30 Euro. But otherwise shipping costs are also very expensive, no choice!
          The light is great. I'm very happy with my decision to by this one. Especially the Rifa ex 44 makes a very soft light in the faces of my interview partners. I use it for shots with a Sony EX3 and a Canon 60D. In my opinion, the soft case is a little bit too small. When you have the choice, take the bigger hard case! And I didn't expect the stands are so heavy. All together, I would buy again! And service of B&H was great. From America to Europe (Austria) within 48 hours. Congratulations!
