The Smith-Victor K45 3-Light 1800 Watt Portrait Kit with Umbrella and Soft Box is based around the 765-UM light - one of Smith Victor's most popular and affordable open face quartz halogen fixtures. Each light is suitable for extended duration use, accepts 600 or 250 watt quartz halogen bulbs. An integral umbrella port and universal 3/8" to 5/8" stand mount makes this a perfect light for photo-video portraits, galleries, or store windows.

The kit is rounded out with a 24 x 32" and 12 x 36" Softbox with mounting brackets, an umbrella, aluminum light stands, a boom arm, bulbs and two cases - one for the stands, one for the fixtures and accessories.

Although equipped for 120 volt use, this 1800 watt kit is suitable for use with 220 AC voltage, with the appropriate bulbs and plug adapters, available separately.

Two Softboxes
Heat resistant, one for a main light, one for an edge, or hair light, the softboxes mount easily to the adapter rings provided.
The White umbrella with black backing provides broad, soft light.
Raven Aluminum Stands

Medium Duty Boom Arm

Multi-Wattage, Multi-Voltage
Other bulbs are available separately to increase the versatility of this kit.

      Comments about Smith-Victor K45 3-Light 1800 Watt Portrait Kit with Umbrella and Soft Box:

      I'm in Canada so had to order this from the US. I had no idea where to buy so emaild Smith-Victor and they got back to me within the hour with a list of places in Canada and the US. I decided on B&H for price and ease of shipping and customs clearance and the product arrived long before expected.

      Lights were easy to set up with the exception of the soft boxes. Note that I have never set up a soft box before and 6 monhts ago I didn't know what one was.

      Product is sturdy and well constructed. I knew the lights were hot but they are also VERY bright. The lights take up a bit of space as expected when set up but fold up nicely for storage (im in a condo).

      Overall, very pleased so far withthe product.

          Comments about Smith-Victor K45 3-Light 1800 Watt Portrait Kit with Umbrella and Soft Box:

          I used the lights most recently for a creative portrait shoot in a house and they worked beautifully for this occasion. They cast a very warm light. The house did not explode when I plugged them in and turned them on. They didn't burn out their bulbs after being used for nearly six hours (with breaks.) My only complaints are that the manual didn't seem to be made for any light kit that was even vaguely related to the one I purchased, and they don't have a dimmer. Otherwise, a very positive experience.
