This ARRI Softbank D5 Plus 4 Light Kit is an ideal choice for interviews and small productions. It includes barndoors, filter frames scrims, 2 softboxes, clamps, light stands, bulbs, accessory kit, and a heavy duty wheeled case.

The ARRI 150W Fresnel is a compact, lightweight fixture with great performance, tough construction and a 2" (50.8 mm) Fresnel lens. Superior optical performance and ARRI's die cast aluminum housing make this the perfect small unit for hair light, edge light or eye light.

The ARRILITE 750 Plus from ARRI is an enhanced version of the tried-and-true ARRILITE open face line. ARRI started with the basic design of the ARRILITE 800 and optimized the reflector to increase output 21% using a 575W HPL lamp which employs a compact filament that concentrates and augments light while increasing efficiency. The result is almost double the output. A redesigned one-arm stirrup instead of a yoke facilitates greater movement while the dedicated accessory holder allows use of Chimera softboxes without a speed ring.

    Comments about Arri Softbank D5 Plus 4 Light Kit (120V AC):

    Arri products are great, and I have no complaints about the overall quality of the equipment.

    However some minor cons that kept it from getting 5 stars:

    - The case is too small for all the stuff they pack in! I can barely shut it.
    - The XS Chimera banks can be difficult to fit into their speedrings. We'll see if this improves with use.
    - The XS Chimera baffle is positioned slightly too close to the Arrilite making for a less even spread without using the included grid cloth.
    - The velcro grid cloth doesn't quite fit the frame (though that's more of a Chimera complaint).
    - Light power cables could be 2ft longer.
    - The scrims smoke a little bit on first use. Doesn't look good in front of clients ;)

      Comments about Arri Softbank D5 Plus 4 Light Kit (120V AC):

      We used to rent an Arri kit for every shoot we did...mostly TV and doc stuff. This kit is perfect for interviews and if you need to fill a natural environment by bouncing the 750s off the ceiling or walls. The case has also been made smaller and a bit lighter than you remember. Chimeras are the smaller version, but work just as well as the big boy. Quit renting and get one. We've probably paid for more than 100 kits in 18 years...what were we thinking.

        After trying to piece things together on my own I finally decided to just spring for this complete package. So far it has been great and has met all of my requirements for in-studio photo/video. The lights and case are very solid and sturdy.
