Lowel Omni-Light Overview

This Lowel Omni-Light One-Light Kit (exclusively from B&H) includes an Omni-Light focusing floodlight, barndoors, and light stand.

The wide focusing range of the Omni-Light makes it a flexible key light 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, hand-held light.

When fitted with its FTK 500W bulb, this fixture will emit a beam of 75 footcandles at full flood and 475 footcandles at full spot from a distance of 10' (3m). The fixture can also function at 220-240 VAC and 12-30 VDC with the appropriate bulb, plug, and power supply (available separately).

Double parabolic peened reflector provides a non-crossover beam for maximum efficiency and longer gel life
A large, stay-cool folding handle allows the Omni-light to be adjusted or hand-held, and folds for storage
Has a focus range of 6:1 with #1 reflector and FTK Lamp
Uses 500W, 420W, and 300W at 120V
Other bulbs are available for 230V and 240V AC, and 30V DC

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.

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.
