Photoflex Starlite-XS OctoDome nxt 1.5' Kit (120-240VAC)

Product Highlights
  • 500 Watts, as Supplied
  • StarliteQL Fixture, 120V Bulb
  • 1.5' OctoDome nxt, Adapter
  • Light Stand

This is a B&H Photoflex Starlite-XS OctoDome nxt 1.5' Kit which includes a StarliteQL fixture with 500 Watt bulb, a Photoflex Extra Small 1.5' OctoDome nxt Softbox, adapter ring, and light stand.

The Photoflex StarliteQL is designed for use with a heat-resistant softbox. The included long bulb extends directly into the center of the box, reflecting light evenly off all four sides. This maximizes both output and efficiency. The Starlite is a "flicker-free" light source, which provides a light quality that is soft, beautiful and natural looking, yet powerful enough for the demands of video or digital photography.

Although this kit is supplied for use with 120 AC voltage, it can function with 220-240 voltage, with the appropriate optional bulb, and adapter plug, available separately.

    Comments about Photoflex Starlite-XS OctoDome nxt 1.5' Kit (120-240VAC):

    The XS OctoDome 1.5' is a nice, inexpensive collapsible softbank. Personally, If I had to do it over I'm not sure I'd by the whole kit again. I think the OctoDomeXS and the Speedring separately are about 1/2 the price of the kit. The Starlite fixture's mogul receptacle is made of flimsy metal that makes it very difficult (almost impossible) to screw in a socket adapter to use a smaller edison based bulb. The included 500W mogul based bulb screws in and out of the Starlite fixture effortlessly but the bulb's heat and light output is a little much for the close proximity to a subject I would use this beauty dish for. The inner baffle of the OctodomeXS is useless with tungsten bulbs as far as I can tell. Unless the light is pointed straight down it will most likely be singed or burned by even a standard size household bulb. The build quality's a little low compared to some other more expensive Mogul fixtures I own but you get what you pay for. I'll probably end up using the OctodomeXS with a 100W or 250W standard edison based bulb in a simple socket as a quick, lightweight beauty light and for the relatively inexpensive price tag if I use the rest of the kit a handful of times I will have gotten my moneys worth.
