            Comments about Arri 650 Watt Plus Tungsten Fresnel (120-240VAC):

            At Univ. of Florida, in the production program, we work with the 2x650w, 2x300w kit and I have fallen in love with ARRI lights. The 650w is definitely my go-to light.

            The build is SOLID. You can use it to light the subject or the background (with a cucoloris ex.). It wont punch through gels and diffusions like the T1, but if you need to do that then get a T1.

            This is a must for filmmakers whether you rent it or buy it; you can never go wrong with a 650w fresnel on set. You'll need it for something sooner or later!

                Great light, and with easily changed bulbs you get some great flexibility in how much light you throw. Looks good directly on a face, especially with the 300W bulb and the 650 is plenty to push through a diffusion panel. Solid build, great flexibility, what more could you want?

                  The Arri 650 fresnel certainly isn't the latest technology. In fact, fresnel lenses are a 19th Century invention. That being said the engineers at Arri have made this light a pleasure to use and maintain. First of all is bulb installation. Just pop the top off and put the bulb in place. The second is rewiring it. The screw down wiring system works every time and is much better than comparable LTM or Mole systems. Then there's the light quality which has a nice throw, is as even as a fresnel gets, mostly pleasant shadows, and a nice heatsink design which reduces heat problems. I have used this light twice already in a week's time and I am sure it will see battle again soon!

                    This light has a special quality about it. I use this light for still photography and could not be more please with the results. My images have an "old Hollywood" look to them that just can't be achieved with a strobe. The Fresnel lens adds a certain luminescence to images that is unbelievably beautiful to my eye. I use it with the barn doors and a dimmer. With the dimmer the color temp will get slightly warmer as you dim so if color is important to you keep this in mind. You will also need to use a correcting gel with this light if you are shooting under mixed conditions.

                        I needed to add a fresnel to my kit and I have been evaluating cheaper models for almost one month. I read reviews and watch youtube videos, and decided that there is no substitute for the real thing. I love it because it has a punch and it is fairly small, and I was able to pack it easily next to a 1000 LED light in my check in bag when I fly. So far this light does the job for what i do, but I will buy another one at some point soon.

                        this is a solidly built, well known product. i do find one problem : the bulb seat doest fit the proper bulb fixture well. it wont seat all the way. the socket seems a touch flimsy and while the bulb goes in and works , it doesnt seat all the way into the clips , as it seems it should.

                        I use it in my small startup studio. It is smooth and very bright. You can tell it is built well. It even has a lanyard for safety when you hang it!I looked at all the knock off's and just could not bring myself to spend $$$ on something with zero support or way of sending back, much less getting parts.I had one problem with the fat side socket hole. I had to move the metal to get the bulb in, but perfect otherwise.

                          I recently bought this light after reading many reviews and opinions online about the Arri fresnel. I normally shoot with strobes in the studio and my only other experience with hot lights has been with a Source 4 Ellipsoidal and some old NRG lights.

                          I love the quality of this light for portraits and fashion. Make sure to get the barn doors and scrims for even more control.

                              Comments about Arri 650 Watt Plus Tungsten Fresnel (120-240VAC):

                              These are great lights. Convenient spot/flood combined with barndoors and accessories allow for a good amount of control. Fresnel lens provides even consistent source at the same time protecting against lamp failure.

                              In older models the spring holding the barndoor clamp at the top has started to loosen. Without replacing the spring, the barndoors are not safely held in place and had to be secured through additional means.

                              When the light is hot the lamp is highly subject to failure which can be irritating and expensive. While working with these, the slightest jolt can (and has) cause lamp failure. More an issue with tungsten lights in general than this particular model.

                                This product is great for studio video shoots. Combined with a chimera soft bank the Arri 650 Freshnel really shines. The lighting is beautiful and soft. Another great feature is the build quality. With the Arri lights you get solid quality.

                                  Comments about Arri 650 Watt Plus Tungsten Fresnel (120-240VAC):

                                  My video team loves to use the light as ambiance to the background, adding a nice magical element to our wedding films. Since we use it for very simple and indirect purposes, its hard to find anything to complain about it. It does the job perfectly, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in using it for the same purpose.
