Product Highlights
  • 750 Watt Bulb, Umbrella, Stand
  • 120-240VAC
This is a B&H exclusive Lowel Tota-light One-Light Kit with umbrella, 750W bulb, and light stand. 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 its EMD 750W bulb, the 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).

Add additional bulbs of your choice of 300W, 500W or 750W. Bulbs for 220-240 volts, and plug adapters are also available.

Comments about Lowel Tota-Light One-Light Kit:

This was one of the first video lights I ever used over 15 years ago and it's still one of my favorites for budget applications. For the price, this kit is an excellent choice for schools, churches, community groups, and small businesses who need an inexpensive way to drastically improve the look of their videos. It's sturdy and lightweight and the umbrella included with this kit essentially makes it an inexpensive alternative to a softbox that costs nearly 3x as much. The only downside is that it gets very hot, but that's a given with any tungsten light.

Great light and kit from B&H

By Anthony C.

Comments about Lowel Tota-Light One-Light Kit:

To say this is a bright light would be an understatement. I purchased this kit so I could light up a room I'm using for learning portraiture and to use along with my speed lights. I point it at the ceiling so it isn't direct and it's still more than bright enough for this purpose.

The stand and umbrella in the kit are nice as well. The stand could maybe be a little beefier, but it will certainly suffice to hold the light with no problems.

Comments about Lowel Tota-Light One-Light Kit:

Got this kit several years ago as my first pro light. The Tota is an excellent light for travel, with the umbrella it produces striking wrap-around light with a very soft quality. The whole kit could be put in my Kata backpack with a camera and audio equipment (light stand attached to the outside), making it perfect for field interviews. The light is well built (as all Lowel lights) and the Impact air-cushioned stand is actually much better than the standard Lowel stand.

the lamp is bright and tall enough, but pretty flimsy. The knobs started to fall off only 2 weeks in. thats pretty pathetic.
