        Comments about Arri 300 Watt Plus Tungsten Fresnel (120-240VAC):

        As a geezer I've been using hot light fresnels for decades. Much of that time the go-to lights were all from Mole. Arri, I believe has them beat. Extruded aluminum housings, line switches built to last a lifetime and extreme ease of lamping. (how did that guy in 2010 miss the snap open lamp access?) Buy this unit...or any arri unit...and you will never have to replace it..you will want to see your arri family grow.Ideal in the studio and built for the abuse of the road!

          I am a hobbyist photographer and acquired this product to hone my skills and product. The ARRI light combined with the barn door feature and the separate dimmer switch allows me to have full control of the light I use in portraits.

          Works as described. Doesn't come with barn doors. Aero makes a great product very durable.

            Comments about Arri 300 Watt Plus Tungsten Fresnel (120-240VAC):

            I love this light! It's more powerful than the Arri 150 (a given) while still being pretty compact. The next one up in this line (Arri 650) is also fantastic but quite large.

            I use this as a hair light or accent light. I've also used it in several short films and music videos.

            It's built like a tank (like all Arri's) and extremely versatile.

                  This is a great instrument for those who shoot film and video and need something lightweight, compact, and sturdy. At 300 watts, it's not bright enough to serve as main light for medium or wide shots, but can provide fill light for those shots and serve as your main light for close-ups. A really great value.

                  We produce high end television commercials for prestige brands around the world and over the years our entire lighting kit has evolved to pretty much be all Arri. The build quality and functionality and performance exceeds the competition.

                      This is the first Arri Fresnel light I have purchased. It was very easy to put the bulb in and I immediately started setting up for a shot. Using the scrims and barndoors was a piece of cake. Combined with the 150 Arri light I was ready to start having fun in the studio in less than a half hour out of the box!

                                Was here to order a replacement bulb and saw the comment about changing the bulb. Couldn't help myself. This unit has a compression fit hinged door on the top. The bulb is easily accessible and can be changed in about 1 minute. Great light. Been using it on the road as a back light for interviews for over 7 years. Hasn't failed me yet.
