Smith-Victor K33B reviews

K33 3-Light 1800 Watt Portable Attache Kit with Barndoors is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I change my mind, these are junk. I wrote the first review shortly after getting them. Now after a few months of smelling burnig plastic while watching clients on set look worryingly at the smoke rising from them I felt I had to write a retraction to my first review. These are junk. I expected the smoke would go away after a while, but it never really did. If you plan on using these indoors, forget about it. You'll set off the fire spinklers from all the continuous smoke. You might get away with using these outdoors, but that is it. Even for an inexpensive kit like this one, it is nearly useless as studio lighting. In short, don't buy these unless you plan on never plugging them in and only using them for decoration.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Holy Cow These are Bright and Super Hot! I use this light kit for professional video and photography lighting. Granted these are not the most sophisticated lights on the market, but for the price, they're really not too bad considering they don't focus and there is nowhere to drop in a scrim. They do smoke a little the first time you turn them on (so do that outside) and you have to wait for 15-20 minutes before shooting so the light temperature can solidify. I was amazed at how bright these were and how hot they run. If you're going to buy these you should definitely order them with Neutral Density Gels to calm them down and/or lower powered light bulbs to make them more versatile. Overall the I would recommend this to prosumers looking for an inexpensive alternative to fresnels...well at least until you can afford a good ARRI set. This is a good get you by for now sort of kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great travel kit I take this kit with me when I am heading out of town on a shoot. It is very lightweight and portable. The heads are a little small, but it's a great value for the price.
