Product Highlights

  • 2- 650 Fresnels
  • 1- ARRILITE 750 Plus Focusing Flood

This ARRI Softbank 1 Tungsten 4 Light Kit includes barndoors, filter frames scrims, a softbox, light stands, bulbs, accessory kit, and a heavy duty wheeled case.

The ARRI 300W Plus Fresnel is designed to gather as much light as possible and direct it through the 3.2" (81.2 mm) low expansion, borosilicate Fresnel lens producing a soft, even field of light. The beam spread is 15 - 55°

The 650W Fresnel features the same lens, reflector, housing and power cord as the 300W Fresnel. The beam angle in the flood position is 54°, and a narrow 13° in the spot position.

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 750W 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.

Soft Light
The 24 x 32" Chimera Video Pro softbox provides soft, flattering light for talent and pleasing catch lights for reflective objects.
Light Shapers
Use the barndoors and scrims to alter the shape and intensity of the lights. The included filter frames are ideal for color effects filters or diffusion.
Light Spread
ARRI lights are renowned for even beam spread, high efficiency and superior spot-to flood ratio.
Accessory Kit
Includes a bag, clothes pins, bulb storage case, 3-outlet extension cord, and heat-resistant gloves.

Offer lightweight, yet sturdy support to a height of 8.6' (2.6 m)

      Comments about Arri Softbank I Tungsten 4 Light Kit (120V AC):

      Been lighting with halogen soft boxes and getting nice looking stuff. But the results are lame compared to what the focusable flood can do w/ without the soft box. Add in the fresnels to get different looks, fix problems and our work has just jumped two notches, at least.
      I toyed with just getting a three light fresnel kit, and I am very glad I went for the kit with the 750 flood. At first I thought the 650 were too much and put a 300 watt in one of them, on the set I switched it back.
      I'm shooting with a 5D mmii, and keeping the ASA 800 and lower is critical and you just can't do that without a lot of light that you can control.

      Comments about Arri Softbank I Tungsten 4 Light Kit (120V AC):

      Great kit for small to medium productions, with the accessories you need to get started and build your way up adding bigger lights, softboxes and other.
      They get extremely hot right away, but I used them last week on a set for over three hours and they worked great, just remember to use the included gloves to handle them.

      Arri also has lights that wont gte hot and you can control the white balance, but they are more expensive. If you can afforded I would say go for those.

      I bought to Pro Flags and Impact Dimmers, and they are a great addition to this kit.

          I have found that this is a great kit for smaller projects and interviews. The fixtures that are included give a lot options for the type of productions we do. And because of the size of the fixtures, we are able to use house power for everything.

          All around a great buy.

          One of the 650 w Arri lights switch came in broken. B&H sent me a new one right away. The quality of light is important. Your subject looks great means your video looks great which means you will have happy customers. The product itself is made very solid and comes with pretty much every thing you need. Even a 100% leather gloove. The case is very heavy. This is not my travel light kit. It gets hot and can burn you or any thing that is in contact. But get over it. LED's might be sexy, but this light is all bout long throw and all the qualities of a fresnel light. I love mine..

            This is a great lighting set for video production. I purchased this set along with an additional ARRILITE 750 for use in a green screen studio. My only complaint is that the Chimera only fits on the ARRILITE 750 and doesn't fit on the 650s without an additional speed ring. I also highly recommend a dimmer for your fill light (the dimmer does cause a slight buzzing sound but my fill is far enough away from the mics that it doesn't pick up).

              Great all-round light kit. ARRI makes excellent products, overall. I use the 750 with soft box as the main front light and use the others as fill from the sides/top/back as needed. I also purchased the dimmers to have more control and the snoots to help direct the light. I am very pleased with my purchase.

                Great versatility in a small(ish) package! Light a "talking head" or a whole room! I purchased the recommended dimmer and use it almost exclusively with the soft-box. Most of the time I can light an interview (or other medium to small shots) with one light and a bounce card. Everything packs up in one case, it is a bit heavy, but once it is on location there are no more trips to the van. Highly recommended.

                  Its a fantastic kit, great for interviews and enough amplitude for lighting medium-sized rooms. Also gives you tremendous control and diversity. LEDs and Kinos are nice and all, but they can't compare to the level of light manipulation and richness this little kit gives you.

                    I just used it for a video interview situation and it was perfect.
                    The 750 w/chimera made a beautiful key light and the fresnels were great for backlight and bounce fill as well as background.
                    The travel box is heavy but once it's on location you have everything you need.
