Lowel EX55 overview

  • 1Description

This is a Lowel LC-55 Rifa EX Lite Kit. Creating beautiful soft key or fill doesn't have to be strenuous or time consuming. Compact, lightweight, and self-contained, the Rifa-lite EX uses a simple design approach as old as the umbrella to achieve its quick and easy setup and strike capabilities.

The EX series of Rifa Lites enables you to change out the fixture's socket, to make use of higher wattage halogen, more economical tungsten, or cooler running fluorescent bulbs.

Adaptable Lamp Fixture
The Rifa EX accepts many different wattages and types of bulbs, when you purchase the appropriate socket adapter, available separately.
Front Diffusion
A State of the art, woven glass fabric, heat-resistant 21 x 21" (53 x 53cm) front diffuser provides sufficient illumination with soft shadows.
Easy Access
Easy access pockets on fabric shell allow clip-on gel attachment for correcting to daylight.
Light Stand
Rises to a maximum height of 7' (2.1 m).
Kit Case
The LB45 soft kit case has interior dividers and a shoulder strap.

    Lowel EX55 reviews

    Rifa-Lite EX55 Softbox Light Kit, LB40 Soft Case (120-240VAC) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent light kit This soft box is simple to set up and configure, it takes less than 60 seconds from start to finish. Get the kit with the stand and case for easy transport. You'll want several bulbs as well the kit comes with a small plastic container (a bit flimsy but functional) for additional bulbs. Good source of soft even lighting, you can use one as a keylight and another for rim lighting. While there are less expensive chimera kits available the build quality of the Lowel products is very good. The new kits have interchangeable heads so there's plenty of flexibility.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for Interviews This is one sweet kit. It's lightweight, easy to transport, and sets fast for a softbox. I would recommend the balance bar accessory or a sandbag because without the bar, the light is a bit front heavy. I would get a spare lamp or two right away. The kit includes a little padded hard container to keep them in. I also have the same kit with the hard case as well for air travel. This bag is very well made and would probably hold up in baggage, but I didn't want to take any chances. The bag seems almost large enough to squeeze two kits into. I haven't tried that yet. I use my kits for interview shots and in operating room environments because they conceal the lamp and don't leave spots in the surgeon's eyes if they glance at it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! I bought this after much deliberation and am so glad I went with the purchase. This thing is solid. And works amazingly well. It's easy to use (the instructions are a little complicated though) and incredibly versatile with the addition of a dimmer switch. I shoot mostly video interviews and combined with two smaller lights, this key light gives great coverage with a nice, warm glow. 500 watts is plenty for a small/medium sized space. I highly recommend Rifa. Customer service at B&H was sketchy at first (the telephone sales guy sounded grumpy and irritable), but once I told him that I was ready to purchase, he became more helpful. I received the products in a timely manner (to Vancouver, Canada) and everything was in good, working condition out of the box. Thank you B&H!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect lights We use these for on location interviews and lighting. They are extremely portable, lightweight and easy to use. My only con is the power switch should be further up on the cord.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Softbox for Professionals This Lowel softbox kit comes with everything you need to get started, including the bulb. The EX designation allows you to swap out different types of bulbs according to your requirements. The stand is heavy duty. The light sets up quickly and easily. This product is designed for the professional on the go. Get this kit and you can say Been there, lit that. lol

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Small-area Illumination The Rifa-Lite EX55 Softbox Light is compact, light-weight and easy to set-up/strike (the kit is complete as is)...just the right thing for lighting a corner of an office to grab b-roll; for a one-person interview, or for table-top demonstration..love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good source of light It's not as powerful as I thought. I will need to purchase a second one. Good quality. Glad I went with Lowell and not a cheaper brand...
