Product Highlights
  • Two 150W Tungsten Fresnel Lights
  • Two Variable Color Temperature LEDs
  • Complete Kit W/Wheeled Carrying Case
  • 120-230VAC

Flexibility is the key with the ARRI H-3 Hybrid AC Kit With Wheels (120-230VAC)--it combines 2 ARRI Locaster LED variable color temperature lights with 2 ARRI 150W tungsten Fresnel fixtures. The LEDs are continuously dimmable and offer 6 different color temperatures between 2800°K and 6500°K. At only 2 lbs each, they can fit (even with included barndoors) into places a tungsten Fresnel light can't. And the included power supplies for the LEDs can operate on 120-230VAC. The Fresnel lights produce impressive light output and good light distribution over the full beam area (due to their short-focal-length wide-angle lens). Also included are power supplies, extension cables, filter frames, and baby pins for the LEDs, plus barndoors, scrims, filter frames and a ceiling scissor clamp for the Fresnel lights, three 8' light stands, and a carrying case with built-in wheels. Whether you're using film or modern light-sensitive digital media, a kit like this will be all you need to solve a surprising number of lighting problems. Kit is supplied for use with 120-230VAC. The 150W Fresnel fixtures may be operated on 220VAC with optional plugs and bulbs.

Good specialty light kit

By BKnize

Comments about Arri H-3 Hybrid AC Kit With Wheels (120-230VAC):

I bought this kit as a starter light kit, which was a bad idea on my part. I should have gotten a Softbank IV instead (for less money). That was my poor choice, and so I won't make my bad decision reflect my review of this kit.I really wish I could give this kit 3.5 stars, but 3 seems too low, so I'll give it 4. This kit is more of a "specialty" light kit, as all of the included lights are relatively underpowered for any primary lighting needs.I LOVE the new Arri Locasters! They the easiest lights to set up, with no need for gels or scrims. It's like having 2 softboxes (albeit underpowered). These lights are really best used as "eye lights." If I had any complaint, I REALLY wish the controls were not ON the units themselves. It makes it harder to dial in the lights, when they are boomed up 8' in the air. If you need to make any adjustment, you will need to use a ladder… or you'll need to take the light down, make the adjustment, and then send it back up. I suppose that's the same with any light, but even the on/off switch is ON the light. They could have at least put that in line with the cord. Don't get me wrong, these are nice lights… they set up fast (since you don't need to mess with gels and scrims), and they break down fast (since they really don't get hot).The 150s are great, and work as they should. Really nothing to say about them.My biggest complaint about this KIT, is the case that they come in. There is only enough room for 3 light stands (even though you are supplied with 4 lights). On that same note, Arri only gives you 3 stands (so you'll need to buy a 4th, if you wanted to use all 4 lights at once). Keep in mind your 4th stand won't fit… seeing as the 3rd stand barely fits as is.Flat out, the case is too small! Everything that's included fits, but you're just about maxed out on space (as compared to a Softbank IV kit, which has a little more girth). I've managed to put my extension cord, and reflector behind the top flap, but it's a real squeeze to get the case closed after I get them in there. I managed to swap out the x2 Arri 150s, for an Arri 300 and a Chimera Triolet Mogul base. It took some serious maneuvering to get them in there, and I still can't fit the rest of the Chimera's kit in (softbox, grid, diffusion, etc…). I guess I'll have to carry it outside the box, with my 4th light stand as well.Anyway… the included lights are great, but best served as a specialty light kit. The case is seriously too small! Don't buy it as your primary light kit.

    Comments about Arri H-3 Hybrid AC Kit With Wheels (120-230VAC):

    We produce a daily, 90 second talent-driven web series. This kit contains everything you need for those quick hit, stand-ups or interviews. The LED variable color temperature instruments are a lifesaver in those scenarios where natural light plays havoc with a balnced look. The 150W tungsten fresnels are perfect back/rim lights. The kit comes with four instruments but only three stands which is peculiar and problematic if you want to take full advantage of everything.
