Comments about Altman 650L-HS Fresnel Light:

Get the Arri's. They are worth it. We purchased 3 of these Altman lights and within 6 months we had to replace the sockets in all three. You CANNOT buy these parts from B&H. We had to call the mfg. to order them. We got the run around several times, but once we replaced the sockets they have been pretty solid. So, bad or cheaper parts in the stock units? I don't know.

    Comments about Altman 650L-HS Fresnel Light:

    This unit is used for field production: corporate, ENG, commercials etc..

    I've used Arri's for a long time, I prefer these for a number of reasons. The price is right (especially given currency exchange rates) , they are USA made, well made and I prefer the clam shell door for lamp access and cooling. It is so much easier to open.

    Oh- and they are cool looking :-).

    The only drawback compared to Arri's is that they are a bit heavier.
