      Comments about Smith-Victor A5 5" Adapta-Light (120V):

      Excellent product to light up specific subject areas, i.e., hair, gem facets etc. Reflector does a fantastic job of directing light onto the subject. Easy to grip wooden handle makes it easy to position the light where you want it and keeps heat from high wattage bulbs from burning your hand.

      Well made for years of use, this is a great light for the studio. :)

      Good value. Not as good as the Impact

      Comments about Smith-Victor A5 5" Adapta-Light (120V):

      I bought this lamp holder to use with the SV barn door attachment. Overall, the quality is not as good as the equivalent Impact lamp holder. The attachment bracket is a bit flismsy and does not attach tightly, the cord is light gauge and the switch is on the socket instead of the line.

      If Impact made a barn door for their 5" lights, I would go with them, but they don't.

      I use it when I need to direct extra light on or near a subject. The screw that holds lamp to stand may be a little small (diameter) but no problems so far.
