The wide focusing range of the Lowel Omni-Light makes it a flexible key or backlight. Add diffusion or an umbrella, and it's a soft fill source. Swap the power cord and lamp and it becomes a battery powered, handheld 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 at full flood and 475 footcandles at full spot from a distance of 10' (3m). Other bulbs and plug adapters are available.

Double parabolic peened reflector provides non-crossover beam for maximum efficiency and gel life.

    Lowel Omni-Light reviews

    Omni-Light 500 Watt Focus Flood Light (120-240 VAC / 12-30 VDC) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 54.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Field Light Yes, LEDs are cool and energy efficient. But when you want to get creative in the field, and paint with light, there's nothing quite as versatile as a bag of Omnis.The brilliantly designed barn doors let you shape just the right beam; adding gels is fast and easy using a couple of wooden clothespins. I like the way the silver umbrella reflector slips right in, and turns a floodlight into a soft source. Not quite as pretty as a soft box, but it's quick and gets the job done.Old school? Maybe. But Omnis are still the most used brush in this painter's box...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a hot light! I use this as a professional videographer - mostly with interviews in situations where I can't maximize ambient light. I use it - more often than not - with an umbrella because the unfiltered light can be quite harsh. Also have a set of barn doors, which iI think are essential. The light's handle is very important and allow for some versatility as to how it's used - you could, for instance, take it of the pole. But a word of warning - this thing burns very hot very quickly - almost instant.y. So where gloves at all times and shut down when not in use. All in all, this is a good value product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for close quarters To light a poetry reading in a New York apartment this was the perfect balance light for a soft fluorescent two-tube fixture that was the main 3/4 key. The Omni-light on the other side with a 300 watt bulb sucked not much juice and was soft enough at flood setting, closely barn-doored, to make the brunette shimmer and the blonde glisten, without making them sweat, throwing harsh shadows, or even requiring a back light. The Tota clamp on a bookcase brought the Omni close to the subject without the clutter of a light stand. Made even DV look good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multiple use for experience freelancers 500 watts is a good amount of light and good exposure for shooting at an ISO of 100 on a DSLR. And, if you have three of them, all the better. If you have black foil, a light like this can easily be diminished to the amount of light of a pro with a little more umph. The attached handle is very handy. The gel frame connector is also good for diffusion, and of course gels. It is a small and light-weight light. It is an all-around good light. The fact that it is hot as expected, so get some cowhide gloves.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY BRIGHT! I got this to use at wedding receptions, and I had to buy a dimmer because it's WAY brighter than I anticipated. Having the option of going brighter is good though in case I need more power for other circumstances. The light performs very well, has a super sturdy build, yet small for light-weight travel. I love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lamp to have Yes this lamp can be used with 240V supply you just have to purchase the correct lamp and also an all in one electrical adapter as the 240V outlets are usually configured different from the 120V. Also double check the colour rating of the lamp and please do a manual white balance

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent light for it's price I use this light mostly for interior photography. When I use a dimmer on this light, it gives me tremendous versatility and the fact that it is so small affords me the ability to stick it just about anywhere. The one thing I don't like about it is the metal around it gets really hot and it becomes difficult to handle, but that goes for any tungsten light. The handle on this light will become your best friend if you don't want to get burned.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Entry level lights 500watts of power is pretty nice. The build quality is great. The barn doors function as they should. The only downside to these lights is that the spot and flood controls only have two options. ARRI lights and Mole Richardson lights ave a finer focusing control. If you want a smoother control over that I recommend buying a dimmer. I'd caution on buying a decent dimmer some of them will have a hum that could potentially be a problem for audio. Overall these lights work great they can take a beating however I recommend that they be properly taken care of.
