Product Highlights
  • Umbrella Style Softbox Light, 120V Bulb
  • 32 x 32" (81 x 81cm) Front Diffuser
  • Changeable Socket

Compact, lightweight, and self-contained, the Lowel Rifa-Lite EX 88 uses a simple umbrella design to achieve its quick and easy setup and strike capabilities. A 32 x 32" (81 x 81 cm) woven glass fabric, heat-resistant front diffuser provides sufficient illumination with soft shadows.

The EX Rifa socket consists of two main parts -- the base, and a removable, twist-turn socket that may be changed out for another EX socket that accepts single, or three E26 screw-in bulbs, or a socket that accepts lower wattage halogen bulbs.

Use it with its supplied TH-X1000 lamphead and 1000 watt lamp for highest output, or switch to 750 or 500 watt lamps for decreased output with the samelevel of softness. Now enhanced with the abilities of the Rifa eXchange System, this light can quickly swap to accessory lampheads for lower wattage AC/DC tungsten-halogen, or to use screw-threaded daylight fluorescents.

          Comments about Lowel Rifa-Lite EX88 1000 Watt Softbox Light with Lamp (120V-240VAC):

          The biggest positive is how fast you can set this bad boy up. 1000 watts will do the trick every time but the optional dimmer is also great to have.

          Unfortunately, I hate sticking around when shooting is done. Expect to hang around a while so this can cool down. Don't want to burn a hole in your softbox or your pocket.

          Maybe a little overkill but I bring 1000, 500, and 250watt lamps so I con cover anything. Will probably add fluorescent kit as we'll. Sets up as fast as a umbrella. The egg creat shade is a must.

            Comments about Lowel Rifa-Lite EX88 1000 Watt Softbox Light with Lamp (120V-240VAC):

            I own two of these and couldn't be happier. Unlike most Chimera brand soft boxes, where the box sits in front of the light, the Rifa is constructed around the globe, which makes for much more even light distribution onto the diffusion element. I used these on set for years while working for some of Hollywood's top gaffers, and they were very popular units.

            I'm waiting for Lowel to release a daylight-balanced LED attachment to replace the fluorescent option they currently offer. If it could get close to the output of the 1000w tungsten globe, I would buy one immediately (the five large fluorescents only put out about half the footcandles of the 1000w tungsten, and that's just not enough to do very much).

              Just used two of these to light up a huge screen screen - worked like a charm. Nice even spread across the green screen. Also used this as a sweet back light for talent - very beautiful way to accent hair for female talent. Love my RIFA's!

                This softbox has been everything I hoped for. Used as a key to light video interviews. Extremely quick setup, opens like an umbrella. Packs away small and is great for travel. 1000 watts gets the job done! Also nice to have the daylight option. I've used both indoors and outdoors in the first week. A convenience totally worth the investment.
