This ARRI Softbank IV Plus 5 Light Kit includes barndoors, filter frames scrims, a softbox, 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 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

        You have in one box all the tool you need to make a production look profesional.

        Light is everything and if you understand the importance of this, you have to buy it.

        It did pay it self in the first job that I used.

          Comments about Arri Softbank IV Plus 5 Light Kit (120V AC):

          This kit gives a small professional company like my the tools to create professional images. My small production company, Molten Minds Productions, on the Big Island of Hawaii, has no options for rentals outside of shipping from Honolulu on O'ahu. So, having a versitle reliable lighting kit is a must. The only thing missing is a comprehensive gel pack which I had to piece together sepparate, and it all comes in one huge roller case which makes it heavy and cumbersome over uneven terrain.

          Comments about Arri Softbank IV Plus 5 Light Kit (120V AC):

          This product was awesome. Enough said, but I will go on. When it comes down to it and you want to light a production and make it look good this is the only kit you need. I mean yeah sure you can add more lights and make it even better, but this has got to be your starting point and you can totally pull of any size project with just these.

          I love them and bought them over nighted and used them that night on a feature and in 2 weeks they have been used on 3 features, 2 interviews, 1 tv show, and 2 shorts. Not to mention the extras that this package comes with totally helped make it a no brainer. You really want a full light kit start with this then add another 150w, another 300w, and one more 650w then add two 2ks and your set for life. This is a must have kit to work as a pro!

            Comments about Arri Softbank IV Plus 5 Light Kit (120V AC):

            This ARRI light kit is probably the most flexibly, useful all-around kits you can buy. It includes 5 lights at 4 different wattages with all accessories for each light. All fixtures are well-built and produce even, controllable light. The new design of the 750 ARRILight takes a bit of getting used to but I like how you don't need a speed ring to attach the soft box. Great starter light kit you can build from. Note that these are all traditional, tungsten Fresnel fixtures, not LED or florescent lights which, while useful, generally aren't as sturdy and flexible as the ones in this kit.

            Comments about Arri Softbank IV Plus 5 Light Kit (120V AC):

            As if getting ARRI Lights was not enough they even throw in all the extras with this package! I use my lighting kit for professional interview setups and commercial set lighting. This kit has all the essentials and comes with the all new 750 plus which replaces the traditional open face 800/1000 ARRI light.

            Inside you will find a Mayfer clamp, a set of ARRI Hot Hand Gloves, some bullets, and an extension cord. This kit is great for small production companies trying to get something going. For all you Indies out there, this is a must buy!

            With (2) 150's, (1) 300, (1) 650, & (1) 750 this set is just about complete... near perfect for a small time job. I recommend adding an additional 650 to make your package (2) total if you don't already own light. This way you can tackle background and dual interview setups.
