    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Continuous solution for still & video Over the years I've used many types of lighting solutions owned by my employers or pro shooting friends. I recently decided to invest in my own custom lighting kit and selected this size Lowel soft box in addition to the 65-watt fluorescent lamp-head (the bulbs are HUGE, but worth the lighting results). I pair this unit with two pro-level LED lights for the key, fill and hair lights for one-, two- or three-person lighting sets, indoors or out. I use additional lights for the background, if needed. I like this Lowel soft box as it sets up in about one minute. With a different lamp head, I can also use DC power for location shoots. My two LED lights are also AC or DC capable. Options are the key. I chose fluorescent and LEDs for those lights closest to me and the talent so we don't roast. I also like the Lowel soft box's portability in size and weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful soft lighting everytime Aside from the heat that 1000 watts generate, these lightsare easy to transport. quick to set up, and always create abeautiful soft (nearly shadowless lighting) I have 3 ofthem and use them often for catalog photography on itemsthat have high reflectivity, and can get predictableresults everytime without hot spots. Having a continouslight source makes everything a lot more predictable whilegiving you the chance to blur motion if necessary somethinga little more difficult with strobes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large softbox This is a fantastic softbox, its large and the quality of light produced is beautiful. The reason I bought this one over the large chimera I was looking at was because the Chimera is 36 by 28 or 24 and this softbox is 36 by 36. Also the chimera takes much longer to setup. However the two main issues are because the bulb is designed to be apart of this softbox it means you need to wait 1.5 hours for it to cool down before packing the unit down. The other thing is beause of its large size there is no rigidity in the frame enough to hold the unit tight. So along the sides of the front of the unit it will sag a bit. Escpecially when you put the much needed grid over the diffussion. It is also hard to gel.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great size softbox This softbox seemed to be the best one available on the site. The size is a 36 by 36 (off the top of my head). The next biggest one is probably the largest one you can from chimera which is 36 by 28 or 24. That and the fact it would take much longer rig up the chimera is the reason I went with the rifa. It's a great light. The quality of light it produces is perfect. Exactly what I want for my key. Easy to move around to get exactly what u want on the actors face. The two issues are because the bulb is apart of the collapsible softbox you have to give it an hour ad a half before packing it down and putting it away or take the bulb and bulb housing out. The other issue is the softbox very rigid. The weight of the diffusion and (necessary grid) makes it sag a bit. Not as tight as I would have liked.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from just as described I got the 1K and it's everything it's billed as. I am thankfull for the quick setup and the small profile. I opted to stick with the hot light because I couldn't see how the fluorescents were going to break down as quickly. I wasn't happy about the price but compared to units that don't break down as easy, I'm getting over the high price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME Love this light, the 1000 watt will cover a wide area nice and bright and I do mean bright. Use the 40 Degree Egg Crate to control your light spill. Love the fact that I can switch out fixture connections and collapes it down for travel like an umbrella. You WILL NOT be dissapointed in this light.
