      Awesome lights!

      By Randy

      from SF Bay Area

      Comments about Kino Flo Diva-Lite 401 Two Light Kit (120 VAC):

      These lights are simply awesome. The quality of light is beautiful. These two lights, stands, etc make for a beast of a case in terms of size, but weight is certainly managable. Light stands in the kit are quality matthews stands and not some cheap knock offs. This is a solid pro quality kit.

      Comments about Kino Flo Diva-Lite 401 Two Light Kit (120 VAC):

      I agonized over this purchase for at least 6 months, carrying a 3x5 index card in my wallet listing 4 different lighting packages, itemizing the pros & cons of each.

      Ultimately, I selected the Kino Flo package because it augmented my existing kit, and added something I was missing - a broad, soft source, daylight or tungsten balance, that is ideal for interview lighting with a cool source.

      It is easy to see that everyone is into LEDs, and I am too. But the LED panels that I believe are comparable to the Kino Flo Diva would require 4 instruments to have the same surface area (4x 1x1 panels) vs. 2 Diva-Lite 1x2 panels in this kit. And each of my LED fixtures of choice (Area 48) cost almost the same as this entire kit. For me, the Kino Flo Diva-Lite 401 package is simply more bang for the buck. The only downside is the Kino Flo cannot be battery powered.

      The best advice on buying lights is to rent before you buy. There are so many instruments and so many styles of lighting, the main question is if the Kino Flo system is a good fit for what you do. I live and work outside major production centers, and I work alone, so renting is not easy, but I did find it to be essential. Otherwise, I would have been buying lights without ever having used them before.

      My initial impression of the Kino Flo was negative due to materials used in construction. The main body of the Diva-Lite is little more than black corrugated plastic, the plastic equivalent of a cardboard box. I have come to appreciate how well designed these lights are, however, and this is key to the success of the design. These lights are typically used in close, and must be lightweight in order to be rigged in position safely.

      I totally ruled out DIY lighting solutions. I don't have time to mechanic on lights. One thing that sold me on Kino Flo, besides the almost universal praise they receive from industry pros, is the availability of spare parts. I really like that B&H carries spare parts in depth for this fixture. Nobody buying equipment at this level can afford to have fixtures in a poor state of maintenance, or of dubious ability to perform or ruin a production.

      Another major factor for me was the well thought out road case. Portability, rugged transportation capability, and the ability to setup and strike fast are key features for working professionals. All in all, the Kino Flo kit and care of design for transport are equal in my book to the quality of the fixture and the light itself.

      The included stands are not identified by brand in Kino Flo literature or in B&H website copy, but they turned out to be Matthews Studio Equipment Stands. That's the good news, because I consider Matthews to be without peer. The bad news is these are the smallest, most light weight stands that Matthews offers. Really, I consider them to be occasional use only. For primary use with Kino Flo Diva-Lites, I have purchased Matthews Baby Triple Risers fitted with a Matthews Mini-Boom Arm. This gives real positioning capability with the Diva-Lites that is non-existent with the included stands in this package. Of course, shot bags, C-stands, and flags round out any decent lighting package.

      One variance with the Diva-Lite 401 Two Light Kit as it ships today vs. how the fixtures were configured in the rental package I used. It appears that the silver egg crate grid/louver was once standard with this light as supplied by Kino Flo, but my 401 Two light kit was delivered with no silver egg crates, but it did include two 90-degree black louvers, one for each light. Note: I purchased an additional 60-degree louver, but it will not fit in the kit case. There is room for only one light modifier per fixture in this case. If you purchase optional light modifiers (louvers/grids) you will need to transport them separately. I am keeping mine inside the flat factory cardboard box, and keeping this inside my Matthews flag bag.

      In some respects, I think it is unreasonable to give a rating to a light kit I have owned only 2 or 3 weeks, but I am very happy with this purchase, with the quality of light and capability it gives me at this price point, and I am looking forward to years of service from these fixtures.

            I recently purchased these lights for a studio setup and not only was I impressed I think that I may have gotten more than I expected.

            The Kino Flo Diva Lite 401 delivered a punch and lit up the whole scene so much so that I had to dim the light at 50 percent power.

            I recommend this to anyone who need studio lights without the of your models sweating like they are in a sauna.

              I love this light kit. I went from a cheaper cool light light set up but finally saved up enough money to get this one. I don't regret it one bit. Love these lights, great quality and really well built. The flight that this kit came with is really nice but it's heavy. That's my only complaint but the quality is fabulous so I can't complain too much. :)

                  I got these lights on a recommendation of a fellow photographer. I love them. The light is very nice and being fully dim-able is a great feature.

                  The bulbs are easy to place, and to switch from daylight to tungsten is easy and quick.

                        If you're looking for soft, broad lighting for interviews, this kit is an excellent choice. If you need to lighting for green screen, this kit is an excellent choice. I've used them to light a green measuring 10'x10' with good success.

                        Outdoors, you can use one light with a 5600K lamp as a fill with the sun as your key light. This also works well.

                        We utilize the KinoFlo Diva-Lite 400 kit for capturing customer testimonials and producing in-house videos that are promoted through our YouTube and Vimeo channels.

                        The color-corrected lamps are easy to change in just a few minutes, making both indoor and outdoor shooting fast and easy. Additionally, by using perfectly color-corrected lamps, pre-setting white balance on our camera (Canon 5D Mark II) ensures perfect whites.

                        Also, because they're flourescent, there's no heat build-up, making even close up lighting a non-issue for the talent.

                        The shipping flight case that comes with this kit is durable and designed perfectly. Everything fits in its place snugly.

                        You will need to have add a couple of shot/sand bags if you plan on using the supplied light stands, as they're not terribly stable when you extend them fully.

                        Finally, though not inexpensive, this is the kit of choice for quick, beautiful, even and soft lighting. I wouldn't recommend spending less on something "almost" as good when this kind of lighting makes great video possible.

                            At the last minute I had to travel to NY and I needed lights for a Chromakey shoot. I rented 4 of these and they did a great job, so much that I took out our other lights in our studio and replaced it with Kino's. I've been impressed and love the way they don't make our talent sweat to death!
