Product Highlights
  • 1250 Total Watts

  • One Fresnel 650, 120V Bulb
  • 16x22" Softbox, Adapter
  • Compact Wheeled Carrying Case

Less is more--sometimes. The Arri Softbank D2 Three-Light Kit was designed with modern, light-sensitive digital media in mind, so you can accomplish even more than you might think with the 1250 total watts in this package. Two of Arri's most popular Fresnel lights form the core of this complete lighting outfit: two of the very efficient 300W Plus Fresnels each use a 3.2" (80 mm) low expansion, borosilicate Fresnel lens to produce a soft, even field of light. The 650W Fresnel features a 4.3" (110 mm) lens with the same reflector, housing and power cord as the 300W Fresnel, producing (of course) more light.  A Chimera 16 x 22" softbox is included (perfect for interviews and soft light in tight spaces), as well as barndoors, filter frames, light stands, bulbs, a ceiling scissor clamp to hang a fixture from a drop ceiling, and a hard compact wheeled carrying case for storage and transport. This kit is equipped for 120V AC operation. It will also function with 220-240 AC Voltage, with the appropriate bulb and plug adapter, available separately.

    Comments about Arri Softbank D2 Three Light Kit:

    I have used Arri lights for the past few years for video work and have been nothing but impressed. They are powerful, durable and the kits give you a wide range of capabilities to use for a multitude of different scenarios. As far as I am concerned, they are the best portable production lights on the market. Obviously they do run a little more expensive, but the quality shows. The kit actually came with the wrong item number, but B&H Customer Support was quick to help me with the return and exchange the proper one.

      Comments about Arri Softbank D2 Three Light Kit:

      I use this product for mostly interior-shot interviews and it does and excellent job of lighting the subject (be it a person or an object) without giving me glare or deep shadows. It is very simple to set up and use, meaning I can show a grad student how to work the system once and they are off and running from that point on. It is very maneuverable, and flexible in how it can be arranged, has excellent "legs" in terms of not needing to replace any parts for a longer than average period of time.
