      This 600 watt light will blind you. Great for over all lighting when shooting video. Since its non-focusable I aim mine at the ceiling and use it to naturally light any room. It smokes for about the first 15 minutes of use as the paint cures. This is normal and mentioned in the instructions.

      I utilize the 700SG 600 Watt Quartz Light (120 V) by Smith-Victor for Stage lighting at my Showcases. It's compact smaall and a very strong light, it's adjustability and handling is beyond compare. The only thing about it is i wish there were an dimmable light because it is very bright.

      Comments about Smith-Victor 700SG 600 Watt Quartz Light (120 V):

      The light is very small and lightweight but puts out a good amount of light. The light is harsh so you will need to modify it, by either bouncing it or diffusing it. When it is new it will smell as the plastic heats up. That smells should eventually go away but for now I am still smelling it.

        I bought a Smith Victor 700 SG light kit 10 years ago. I just recently replace the lighting fixture after a decade of use. It emulates natural day light very well.

        This lamp has great 600 watt light, but plastic cover are too hot when the lamp is on.

          Comments about Smith-Victor 700SG 600 Watt Quartz Light (120 V):

          I bought two of these lights, I also bought two ets of barn-doors and brellas for these.

          These are great small light-weight lights that put out a lot of light for it's size. I don't even use the case for these, I jut throw them into my backpack with some small nano manfrotto light stands, this is my small and flexible light package. All I have to carry is my Sony EX3 or Panny AF1100 in a Kata bag, a small 501 tripod, and these lights in my backpack with some gels/diffusion and clothes pins. and I have even smaller Lowel L lights too. I can walk for miles with everything I need to do most basic jobs.

                I would recommend to others with similar needs.

                Easy to use. Simple to set up. A Substantial and powerful light source that works great with umbrellas.
                The only thing to watch out for is that the plastic covering on the lamp easily cracks and chips.

                    Very very bright. Does put off a bit of heat. But in a large open area it is not that bad. Be careful not to trip over it and fall. I have two and both have fell and broke outter glass and some of the shell. Good thing is the cost if so low I did not mind replacing.

                      This is a great deal, good price, good quality. There was a slight chip out of the edge, but the good people at B&H happily replaced it for me and I was on my way in minutes. I'm planning to go back and buy a second one very soon.
