Lowel Pro 55 overview

  • 1Description

This is a Lowel Rifa eX 55 Pro Kit, LB-40 Soft Case. Compact, lightweight, and self-contained, the 500W Rifa-Lite eX 55 uses a simple umbrella-like design to achieve its quick and easy set-up and strike capabilities. It has a heat-resistant 21 x 21" (53 x 53 cm) removable front diffusion screen. The eX series of Rifa lights enables you to change out the fixture's socket, to make use of cooler-running fluorescent bulbs. The kit also includes barndoors, gels and gel frame, bulbs and an LB-40 soft case.

With its high intensity #2 reflector and prismatic glass, the tiny focusable Pro-light is more efficient than a 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 light or accent light, fill light (with diffusion), or backlight. In addition to a wide variety of customizing accessories, its versatility can be increased by adding a DC adapter cable and swapping its bulb for use as a camera-top fixture.

Use the Pro-light as a low-level key light or accent light, fill light (with diffusion), or backlight
Use the gels and barndoor set to alter the light output of the Pro-light
The kit case holds it all safely, including the light stands, for storage and transport

Lowel Pro 55 reviews

Rifa eX 55 Pro Kit, LB-40 Soft Case is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light in a bag These two lights provide more than enough light for most applications. I use it to shoot doc stuff, and the Rifa is fantastic for lighting subjects, while the Pro Light has a surprising punch for background. The extra filters, frame, barn doors, and bulb cases are nice, and the bag is well padded with pockets and straps inside. The stands are surprisingly great -- way better than the film school grade Lowel stands in the past -- very sturdy and easy to adjust. The whole package is easy to carry and setup. Combined with a bounce card, this is the best 3 light kit for under $ (Full disclosure: the Pro Light was defective upon arrival, but B&H replaced it quickly, and the new unit has been problem free.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter kit Excellent light kit for a beginner setup. I mainly shoot weddings and events, and this is perfect for a simple two-point setup during the (normally) dark reception. Photographers love the added light, and I usually balance to daylight depending on the location, etc. so the included gels are a plus. Would have been nice if Lowel manufactured a way for the Rifa-Lite to accept a gel without me having to clamp it onto the softbox, but its still effective so I can't complain. The light is super bright, and the bag has enough room for another stand and another pro-light if you decide to expand later. These lights get HOT(!) but I am still impressed at how quickly they cool down. After shutting off, I can roll up the cords, take of gels, lower stands, and they will have cool off enough to pack away. During outdoor events, the Rifa-Lite softbox will fill with bugs, but that's not really a flaw. This kit includes one 200hr bulb for each light head, but we warned, the Lampak as mentioned in the description is only an empty foam pack for holding spare bulbs, I mistakenly took this as *included* spare bulbs. No biggie, equivalent replacement bulbs are pretty inexpensive and the lampak is a nice way to carry them. The stands included are a little flimsy, so be sure they are not used in a super high traffic area, either that.. or grab some sandbags to weigh them down. The Rifa-Lite is a little heavy for the stand, just be careful with this one. Bottom line: great kit for the money, and I have no regrets. Will definitely be adding another head or two down the road.
