This is a Lowel Rifa-Lite EX55 Softbox Light. This softbox opens like an umbrella and its removable front diffuser measures 21 x 21" (53 x 53 cm).

Compact, lightweight, and self-contained, the Rifa-Lite uses a simple design approach as old as the umbrella to achieve its quick and easy setup and strike capabilities. The EX series of Rifa-Lites enables you to change out the fixture's socket to make use of cooler-running fluorescent bulbs.

Front Diffusion
A state of the art, woven glass fabric, heat-resistant 21 x 21" (53 x 53 cm) front diffuser provides sufficient illumination with soft shadows.
Multi-Voltage
Accepts bulbs of different wattages and voltages, with the appropriate adapter(s).
Compact
Compact folded size (17") allows it to fit into many of Lowel's smallest location light kits.

    LC55EX Rifa-Lite eX 500 Watt Softbox Light (120-240 VAC) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Interview Light This light is durable, easy to setup and great for location/travel interview lighting. I can't think for a faster way to get soft light quickly and as compact as this system. The light quality is very pleasing but does get extremely hot (a given). You could go the fluorescent route but I just didn't what to keep up with a bunch of individual bulbs. Aint nobody got time for that. You will most definitely want to purchase the separate eggcrate with this light as it spreads the light everywhere. It's a bummer that they (eggcrate) are so incredibly expensive. It should be noted that most of the accessories for this light are expensive so you should consider that before investing in this light system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light- Excellent Company We own several of Lowel's softboxes in various sizes. The fixtures themselves are very reliable and provide a great light source for our video productions. My only complaint is that the front diffuser tends to become fragile after a year of moderate use. Also, don't pack them up until the bulb has cooled enough, otherwise the umbrella will get damaged. Other than that, these light are great. Easy to set up. Nice even lighting. I would definitely recommend an eggcrate to keep light off of your background.The customer service that Lowel provides is worthy of a mention here. They are local to me here on the east coast and provide us with fast, affordable maintenance when needed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rifa-Lite eX 500 Watt Softbox Lig This is a great light for setting up video interviews. I use it for the key light in combination with a bounce card for the fill. It's relatively light weight helps it travel well. For protection, I do suggest buying the travel case or at least packing it in another safe case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Softbox for 1-Person Shoots The Rifa 55 is lightweight and great for productions where there's only one crew member: me. I've used it for both interviews and narrative pieces. Make sure to get the Rifa eXchange Fluorescent 3- Lamp Module. I got the one lamp version, and I'm wishing I had more light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ for Portability If you need great lighting on the road this is the ticket. Small and powerful. Great for interviews.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Basic Interviews Does everything I need it to do: Sets up and breaks down fast(er than an Arri light with Chimera soft box) and stows easily enough. I've used once for a three-day setup, but I'm not disappointed in it yet. My only wish is that it had a better counterbalance built in than the one it already has. They sell an accessory balance, but I think they should just make it standard. It matters more on this light and the next size up. The smaller ones don't need it as much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around I use this lamp in professional video settings, lighting anywhere from one to 4 people effectively. A great, flexible instrument. If I had to bring one light to a shoot, it would be this one. Compact, quick set-up makes it indispensable. The only drawback I can detail is the tungsten lamp gets real hot, so breakdown can be lengthy as you can't collapse the unit until the 'pistil' cools.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little soft light This is a great little compact soft light. It's light weight and easier to set up than a chimera but it's a bit delicate so treat it with care. I bought these to light a small green screen but I use them to shoot interviews and just about anytime I need just a bit of fill.
