      Not bright enough but can be easily fixed with different bulbs.

      The floods black exterior scratches easily.

      The adjustment handle is made of plastic so heads up on tightening it!

      Comments about Smith-Victor FL3 16" Reflector with Ceramic Socket and 3 Fluorescent FL26 Lamps (120V AC):

      I have a few of these lights. They are reasonably portable due to their light weight, and they cast an even flood. The bulbs are very cool.

      The clamp attaching the flood to the tripod is none too strong, and one clamp has broken. The others are holding up. Someone must have over torqued the nut.

      Good light but can't use umbrella mount

      By Portrait Painter

      from Greensboro, NC

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Smith-Victor FL3 16" Reflector with Ceramic Socket and 3 Fluorescent FL26 Lamps (120V AC):

      I bought this specifically because it included an umbrella mount, however, I found that the umbrella can't be used with the CFl's placed as they were in the one I received. A design flaw that could be easily corrected by the manufacturer with a slight rotation of the sockets (something that cannot be done by the consumer). If you're not interested in the umbrella that wouldn't be a problem. It would also be nice if the sockets were placed in such a way that you could use higher wattage, larger, CFL's.

        This is a great constant light unit. It gives a strong light that is balanced for daylight and it gives off very little heat. For those who use video or like to work with constant light with a DSLR, this unit is hard to beat.
