This high intensity focusing flood light is supplied with a 120 volt AC power cord. Change the cord, or use a plug adapter, and use the DP-Light anywhere in the world with the appropriate bulb.

    Rugged, inexpensive and simple. We've been using Lowel D and DP lights for decades. Ad ann umbrella or a softbox and you have a lovely key light. Pop in a diachroic and you've got instant daylight fill. Compact design, focusing capability, lightweight, built like a tank, and it's easy to repair. It's a great must-have light in your kit. And you can lamp it from 500-1000W. It's a great team player.

    I have three of these lights that i have used for small video shoots. they are light and easy to setup but the connection between the globe and the fixture is not good. the light will often go out when adjusting spot/flood or just when the stand is bumped. if you have time to stop shooting and attempt to reseat the globe you can often get them back up and running but for a live event where there's no going back i would not recommend this light.

          These lights are very bright and easy to use. I think they really are worth for the price. Adding the barndoors you can easily direct the light and even though it doesn't have a lens like a fresnel the focusing is not bad at all.

          Comments about Lowel DP Focus Flood Light (120-240VAC):

          Seating the bulb is a stupidly diffucult task... I wasn't sure if it was in correctly, or at all. None of my lights turned on for the longest time, and then I found out the bulbs must be perfectly centered. They are very fickle... but now that they are in, I hope they stay so.
          The lights are very bright and look great. It's easy to set up and take down.

            I have been using Lowel Tungsten Dps for a while now, and even though we have the LEDs available, these DP's are my ol faithful. They are rugged, durable and always deliver the results I'm looking for. I will continue to buy a few more just to have in the kit as my shoots continue to demand more light, and also make great rentals. Yes they get hot, as all lights do, unless you go the route of lite panels etc. Add an impact dimmer and you have a great versatile light. Recommend the barn doors.

                Overall, they takes a beating.

                    This is my 3rd, they offer great bang for your buck if you don't need the extra focusing power/precision of a fresnel lens in front of your light. I find the zoom fuction & barn doors adequate for tons of situations (ie bounce off ceiling).

                    This is a good main light at a reasonable price. They do not hold up with frequent use. I have a bunch of old broken ones around the studio which are now useless. The power cord seems designed to pull out from the receptacle that connects it to the main body of the lamp. These last even less time than the lights. A redesign by Lowel to correct these problems is suggested.

                        We've used these lights for video production and stills for years at our studio, and they've performed admirably. I was happy to see the newest model of this light has an improved switch, which was a weak point for the older ones (and one reason they had to be replaced). The light does give off some heat, but it's dependable, and we plan to keep using them into the future.

                        Comments about Lowel DP Focus Flood Light (120-240VAC):

                        I have one of these babies in my kit. Add a dimmer and it works magic. Add a snoot ( the narrow version) and it is awesome. Add a daylight balanced glass filter and you have an HMI without spending thousands of dollars. Rugged and reliable with a great cool grip handle this is the light to buy if you can't afford an Arri. No regrets.

                          Rugged, inexpensive and simple. We've been using Lowel D and DP lights for decades. Ad ann umbrella or a softbox and you have a lovely key light. Pop in a diachroic and you've got instant daylight fill. Compact design, focusing capability, lightweight, built like a tank, and it's easy to repair. It's a great must-have light in your kit. And you can lamp it from 500-1000W. It's a great team player.

                          I have the Lowell DPs in all of my light kits, I use them as my key light with a Chimera softbox attached to it. Very affordable lights that can be bulbed as 1000, 750, or 500 watt lights.
