          Comments about Smith-Victor SoftLight 600 Watt Quartz Light with Hi-Low Switch (120-230V AC):

          I felt really cool and I set this light up for a video shoot we were filming - my first project in a while and I was finally back behind the camera! We had borrowed a light kit from a fellow videographer to which I was very grateful!

          I was so impressed with how bright this light was and was just about to put the other light up when I promptly tripped on the cord and brought it crashing to the ground...

          I broke the living daylights out of that light.
          So! I am here now and have bought a new one for my friend to replace the one I demolished.

          All in all, I would recommend this light but wouldn't recommend letting anyone borrow it.

              This is a great inexpensive soft light. I have several of these and I use them when shooting interviews. The only reason I did not give them 5 Stars is because they break easaly. So don't drop them or you might have to buy a new one.

                I am an art-focused studio photographer and universith professor. [...]. I am very pleased with the product. For the money I can's see how it could be matched. The on-of and high-low switch is particularly convenient. The illumination is clearly very even. Yours truly, Mr. Rabbit

                The quality of this light is only somewhat soft so the name is a bit misleading. Its compact size is a definate advantage for working in small spaces.
