            Runs nice and cool with a 250 W tungsten. Colour balance seems ok with my florescent main soft box. Very sturdy. Smooth on/off switch. Highly recommended.

                  Bought this Unit as a hairlight and couldn't be more pleased. Well built and fits nicely on the end of my boom.

                  Not as I expected

                    Comments about Smith-Victor A50 5" Ultra Cool Light (120V):

                    The light was not as I expected, partially because I was expecting the wrong thing. I was looking for a continous light, that won't run too hot, and have an umbrella holder.

                    When I received this product, I realized that it didn't have an umbrella holder :(

                    WHat I thought was the umbrella holder was actually the screw that goes on the lightstand. So its my expectation gone wrong. Nonetheless, with an extra spigot, I was able to rig this onto an umbrella holder and then onto the lightstand. Its a tad awkward and a bit too heavy for the umbrella holder...but i did my best with what I have.

                    However, despite the name, this light does run a bit hot.

                    So if you're looking to get this light, please note:

                    - It does NOT have an umbrella holder hole
                    - It does get hot to the touch
                    - The reflector is not detactable (at least i haven't been able to detach it yet)

                        I ordered this light to help supplement daylight in a shoot. The light worked perfectly and the clients loved how simple it was to warm up the shot. It did get a little hot, but no where near what some of the others do. I highly recommend this product
