  • 1Description

This is the 120 VAC Smith-Victor K78 1850W Professional Portrait Kit. It is based on one of Smith Victor's most popular and affordable quartz halogen lights, the 765-UM. This fixture is suitable for extended duration use. An integrated umbrella port and universal 3/8 to 5/8" stand mount makes this a versatile light for a variety of applications.

This unit provides maximum strength lighting with 1000 watts of illumination over a large 60° wide by 46° high area. It provides strong, smooth, even lighting for photo, video, or graphic arts applications. The integrated 4-leaf barndoors provide sharp light cut-off.

It includes a 5" diameter reflector with lamp socket that yields a 60° beam with a 250-watt lamp.

Reflector Design
The 765UM is designed with a high efficiency pebble-finish etched aluminum reflector to produce high quality light output with 30° beam spread
Multiple Use
Used for a range of applications such as portraiture, video interviewing, and product stills
In-Line Switch
Makes the 750SG an ideal unit for overhead mounting
Attached Barndoors
Permanently attached barndoors provide positive light control with sharp, even cut-off

Smith-Victor K78 reviews

K78 1850W Professional Portrait Kit (120 VAC) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Kit! This kit provides all the light I need for studio work! The mini-boom helps for overhead shots of tabletop setups and other smaller scale shots. The 765-UM provides more controlled light when necessary. This is a great kit for starters and those who shoot in studio with continuous lighting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good little kit I have a small video production company, and we were super excited for our first light kit! Upon first using it we saw it's obvious plusses and some minuses. The stands are nice and heavy, these things should be able to take a licking and keep on ticking. The 1k lamp has barn doors which is really nice. The other two do not. I was able to get some gel in front of the light, but it is a hassle. The soft box only fits on the 600w lamps, which is not ideal, and it is a pain to assemble. But it works. We haven't operated the boom arm yet, but that should be pretty cool. There is an extra space in the kit box so if you add a light to this setup you won't need another box. Plus the extra storage space on top of the kit box is great for storing reflectors, stingers, c47s, etc. On yeah, plus the kit box rolls, so anyone can drag it around. Overall a pretty good kit, especially for the price! It won't solve every lighting situation you throw at it, but it can do alot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from K78 Professional Portrait Light Kit Revi Amazing lights with great wattage. Has a great diffuser for softening the light. The strong durable stands and long cords are great to have. The case is very heavy so I am buying a bag for the stands and a small case for the light heads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality! Upon receiving, it was actually better quality than I anticipated! Having worked with many lighting kits in the past, this one exceeds my expectations.
