Excellent Light

Perfect for filming, easy to use, very bright. Does get HOT (!!!) so use with caution!

Bright and handy little light

It packs down pretty small, but is quite bright. I need to get bar doors for it so I can add gels, but overall I am very happy with it.

Works well to bring in extra light

I bought two of these lights to use along with my impact 300w hot lights. I shoot video in a fairly large space with high ceilings and needed a few extra bright lights to simply raise the ambient light of the room up and these do the job. These lights get very hot, but work very well.

Highly Versatile

The Lowel Omni Light is a great all-around light that is powerful enough to give you the adequate exposure you need for most digital cameras. What's great about it is that you can use many accessories with it: daylight converter, snoot, speed ring for softboxes. The only thing that's keeping me from giving it five stars is it's loose tilt control, which when attached to heavy softboxes, falls under the weight and ends up pointing downward, which isn't a huge deal breaker, but can be limiting.

These are terrible quality lights

I have bought 6 of these from B&H over the years. I totally regret doing so. After about a year they burn bulbs out almost every day. We bought kits to rebuild them. The screws holding the power wires are CHEAP - they are always rusted - we are trying to replace them with stainless screws. Don't buy these lights

Worked well until the lamp failed after 3rd use

I use this light for short film work. The first 2 days went perfect, no issues, great results. The 3rd day, however, the lamp went mid-shoot. Not sure if it was the Impact FTK lamp so I purchased a couple Sylvania lamps this time but haven't put them to use quite yet.

bulb fixture is broken and bulbs are hard to install into socket and then blow out shortly after. I did receive the same kit earlier and everything works perfectly. I would like a replacement for the the light fixture please.

A strong open-faced lamp that is easily controlled, dimmed, softened. The handle, the baby pin connecter - all standard and well made.

question

Hi, are there 220V lamps (instead of the 110V included one) that would work with this lights?
Asked by: Anonymous
The fixture does not include a bulb.In the USA you can only use 110-120 volt bulbs.If you are planning on using this out of the country and that country is 220-230 volts you will need this bulb, Lowel GCY Lamp (500W/230V), B&H # LOLGCY MFR # GCYAnd you will need an adapter for the plug so it fits the outlet in that other country. Or you can get a different power cable but they make it for UK and Europe only.

question

I've always been curious, is it normal for fresh lighting kits such as these to produce smoke during the first 5 minutes of being turned on for the first time? I feel as though chemicals from the thin metal protective grill over the light bulb react to the light bulb's heat and produced the smoke as it stopped after 5 minutes or so. Thoughts?
Asked by: Anthony
They will do that when they are new but after a few uses it should stop. Make sure the bulb is not touching the grill. Also, never touch the bulb with your fingers. The oils on your hands can burn and destroy the bulb.
