This is a Photoflex Constellation3 Large SilverDome Kit. The Photoflex Constellation3 is a multi-lamp, continuous lighting solution. This kit includes Photoflex's 5600°K CoolStar CFL lamps AND 3200°K Starlite lamps. A Bi-Pin Adapter is available separately for ceramic based, 2 pin G9.5 lamps.

The Constellation3 features three lamp sockets, each with an individual power switch. One power cord can supply power for two sockets; two power cords supply full power to all three sockets.

This fixture includes an all-metal Tilt Swivel, two power cords, and rigid Transpac Carry Case. The fixture is fitted with a grounded 120V Edison plug. Plug adapters are available for 220-240 voltage.

Completing this kit is a large 36 x 48" (91 x 122 cm) SilverDome for softening the light even more. Supporting it all is the LS2320 LiteStand which rises to a maximum height of 12' (3.6 m).

    Comments about Photoflex Constellation3 Large SilverDome Fluorescent Kit (120-240VAC):

    This light kit has plenty of power to light perhaps two to three people In close group. I fond that the light had to be around three to four feet away to get around F4 at 1/30, with the camera set to 400 . This was a little slower that I had expected, but not impossible to work with. I actually bought two of these kits, to use with the fluorescent bulbs. When they arrived, one the two Bowes containing the bulbs had been very roughly handled. Three of the fluorescents were destroyed. B&H were swift to organize a return of the broken items. I have yet to receive the replacements, but anticipate prompt service.
    I hadn't expected the kits to be so large. I took a a while to work out the best way to assemble the Silvedomes and found it easiest to get it all ready on the ground before mounting on the stands. Once one the stands, they feel a little heavy for the mourning brackets. The brackets don't click tightly into place, and wobble slightly. Although they lock securely, I never felt that they were safely in place, and was always prepared for the whole thing to collapse. They have not collapsed yet, thought I plan on using the cases as counterweights secured to the stands, since I have a feeling that the weight of the silverdome may make them unstable when extended all the way to the top.
    Nonetheless, they are very impressive lights, with very soft illumination. I'm glad that I bout the kit with the tungsten lights included. At least I had a backup while the broken bulbs are replaced.
