This is a B&H exclusive Lowel Portrait Three-Light Kit based around the Lowel Tota-, Omni-, and Pro-lights. This 1500 total watt kit includes everything a photographer or videographer needs to get started--three lights with barndoors, light stands and boom arm, an umbrella, bulbs, and an case that holds it all.
This kit is equipped for use with 120 AC voltage. Some or all of the fixtures in this kit can function with 220-240 AC and 12-30 DC voltage, with the appropriate bulbs, adapter plugs or cables, and power supplies (available separately).
Compact, rugged and versatile, the broad throw Lowel Tota-light can be used with an umbrella or gel-frame and diffusion as a soft key, fill, or backlight. With its adjustable reflectors, it can be a smooth and even background light, or point it toward the ceiling to raise the ambient (base) light level of a room. Tota is also widely used for photographic copy work.
When fitted with an EMD 750 watt 120 volt bulb (available separately), the Tota-Light will emit a beam of 41 footcandles, with the barndoors @ normal position, and 34 footcandles with the barndoors @ 180° position, from a distance of 10' (3m).
The Tota-Light is multi-voltage capable. A choice of bulbs, and plug adapters are available -- check the Accessories window of this item.
Compact Wide Floodlight
Its aperture measures only 4.5 x 11" (11.4 x 29.9 cm).
Can be rotated a full 360° with the large, stay-cool, plastic adjustment knob
It uses bulbs from 750 to 300 watts with 120 voltage. It uses 800 watt bulbs for 220 volt use.
Adjustable reflecting doors can illuminate four walls evenly from a corner or compensate for light fall-off from above or below.
The wide focusing range of the Lowel Omni-Light makes it a flexible key or back-light. Add diffusion or an umbrella, and it's a soft fill source. Swap the power cord & lamp and it becomes a battery powered, hand-held light. Available with a host of accessories and built for heavy duty long life, the popular Omni is the perfect companion to the Tota.
When fitted with an FTK 500 watt bulb (available separately), this fixture will emit a beam of 75 footcandles @ full flood, and 475 footcandles @ full spot, from a distance of 10' (3 m). Other bulbs, and plug adapters are available -- check the Accessories window of this item.
Double parabolic peened reflector provides non-crossover beam for maximum efficiency and gel life.
Allows the Omni-light to be adjusted easily, or hand-held, and folds for storage

Uses 500, 420, and 300 watts at 120V. Other bulbs are available for 230, 240 volts AC, and 12-30 watts DC.

Lowel ViP Pro-Light (120VAC/12VDC)
With its high intensity #2 Reflector & Prismatic Glass, the tiny focusable Lowel ViP Pro-Light is more efficient than a mini-Fresnel of equal wattage, yet it gives an exquisite even light, with Fresnel-like shadow quality. It can be used as a low-level key or accent light, fill light (with diffusion), or backlight.
In addition to a wide variety of customizing accessories, its versatility can be increased by switching its 12' AC cable for an optional DC adapter cable and swapping its bulb for use as a camera-top fixture. Other bulbs, and plug adapters are available. When fitted with an FVL 200 watt bulb (available separately), the Pro-Light will emit a beam of 23 footcandles @ full flood, 143 footcandles @ full spot, from a distance of 10 ft (3 m). With a GCC 100W lamp @ 12V DC: 12 fc in flood and 58 fc in spot.
Change the setting from "spot" to "flood" position, or anywhere in between by turning knob on side of unit
Has a focus range of 6:1 with optional lamp.
The front end comes off for easy access for no-tool lamp change.
Substituting the prismatic glass for the optional clear glass turns light into a non-focusing, high intensity spotlight, for long throw situations.
Choose your bulb for 120VAC or 12 or 30VDC.
Photogenic Umbrella, White - 45" with Removable Black Cover
This is a Photogenic 45" Umbrella with Removable Black Cover. This size is suitable for a two - three person head and shoulders portrait.
Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any tungsten or flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a lightbox.
Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.

You'll have plenty of room to take along enough lighting gear for a portrait session - all packed in an organized and accessible way. A touch fastened divider tray separates the stands, boom and umbrellas from the lights preventing them from bumping together and causing scratches or damage.

The bag is made from soft, padded water-resistant nylon and contains six movable touch fastened interior dividers (6 large, 2 small) that will permit you to configure the bag to accommodate the gear you need that day. The Light Kit Bag is carried by its two 2" wide overlapping top carry handles that can easily be extended into dual shoulder straps. The contents are accessed via dual zippers that when placed together will accept a user-supplied lock. For even more protection, the bottom of the bag contains three rubber feet for when the bag is placed on the ground.

Lowel Complete Four Leaf Barndoor Set for Pro, i-Light
The Lowel Four Leaf Barndoor Set for the Pro and i-Lights consists of a Barndoor Frame with four expandable clip-on Leaves. The frame accepts swing-in accessories, and rotates 360°.
Barndoors narrow the beam spread of a light fixture. They help create a three-dimensional look to a lighting scheme by placing light in a specific area, or by keeping it away. The more leaves a barndoor set has, or the longer the leaves the more precisely the beam can be controlled.
