  • Barndoors, Umbrellas, Gel Frames, Gels

This is a Lowel Ambi Kit, centered around two Omni-light focus floods, and two Tota-light floodlights. It includes barndoors, umbrellas, flags, scrims, gel frames, gels, mounts, clamps, gaffer tape, stands, and TO-84Z large hard kit 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. 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. 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).

The wide focusing range of the Omni-light makes it a flexible key light or backlight. Add diffusion or an umbrella, and it's a soft fill source. Available with a host of accessories and built for heavy-duty long life, the popular Omni is the perfect companion to the Tota. When fitted with an FTK 500W bulb each Omni-light will emit a beam of 75 footcandles at full flood, and 475 footcandles at full spot, from a distance of 10 ft (3 m).

Although this kit is supplied for use with 120 AC voltage, it can function with 220-240 AC and 12-30 DC voltage, with the appropriate bulbs, adapter plugs or cables, and power supplies (available separately).

Use the included flags, barndoors, scrims, gels and umbrellas to control the shape, color, quality and intensity of the lights
The kit case holds everything safely, including the light stands, for storage and transport

    Comments about Lowel Ambi Kit:

    I used to use an earlier iteration of this light kit (a model maybe 5 years older). Since then, they have improved the kit by making it more compact and sturdy. The case now has wheels and is not as wide and it also is now customizable inside should you want to rearrange it.
    I have this kit for traveling to shoot still and video assignments on a small to medium scale. It is under 50 pounds and therefore can be checked luggage without additional fees and I have never had a problem with breakage as the case is sturdy and the equipment is separated into compartments.
    The lights themselves give you a lot of wattage for their size and the design of the barn doors (on two of the lights), the gel frames and umbrellas allow for some light modifications.
    I spent a lot of time researching these kinds of kits from multiple manufacturers and this kit gave me the most versatility, most wattage and number of units, with the least amount of weight, for the price. I am very happy with my purchase. For traveling, this is a great solution,
