ARRI Softbank D4 overview

  • 1Description

You might have 99 problems, but enough light shouldn't be one. The Arri Softbank D4 Four-Light Kit (120VAC) was designed with modern, light-sensitive digital media in mind, so you can accomplish more than you might think with the 1250 total watts in this package. Three of Arri's most popular Fresnel lights form the core of this complete lighting outfit: the Arri 150W (two included) is a small Fresnel with great performance and rugged construction, with a 2" (50 mm) Fresnel lens; the very efficient 300W Plus Fresnel uses a 3.2" (80 mm) low expansion, borosilicate Fresnel lens to produce a soft, even field of light. The 650W Fresnel features a 4.3" (110 mm) lens and the same reflector, housing and power cord as the 300W Fresnel, producing (of course) more light.  A Chimera 16 x 22" softbox is included (perfect for interviews and soft light in tight spaces), as well as barndoors, filter frames, light stands, bulbs, a ceiling scissor clamp and a hard compact wheeled carrying case for storage and transport. This kit is equipped for 120V AC operation.

    ARRI Softbank D4 reviews

    Softbank D4 Four-Light Kit (120VAC) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wow, Am I Angry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My company just bought this kit. It was delivered with a bent barn door on the 650w fixture. In addition, the case is far too small for all of the equipment inside, so much so that I can't close the lid. And I haven't even taken out a single item from that case as of yet. I'm afraid of the house of horrors I'm about to find. B&H and Arri, this is completely inexcusable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't beat it I have rented this kit since I began doing video work some 6 years ago... I LOVE the light that you can get from Kino Flo's and HMI's for interviews, but you can't beat the flexibility, mobility and quality of this tungsten Arri kit! With a good set of CT gels, diff, and some simple grip and shaping equipment, this kit is the best for OTF and quick sit-down interviews!! My only complaint? For some odd reason, Arri hasn't figured out an easier way to create just a little more space for the 4 stands that get packed into this kit... It's like squishing a square into a smaller circle every time! My 6 years of use finally convinced me to get my own... This kit has wheels too!! which is huge since the other one I used did not!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth It As far as the quality of the lights it is great. Putting the Chimera on the first time was a bit difficult you should bend the poles a bit before attaching it, otherwise it will be difficult install. They give you plenty of cable too. The only downside is I believe this is the same case as the three light kits so getting it all back into the case is a bit of a challenge. You're not going to be able to have a quick clean up, maybe it'll just take a bit of getting use to but a bigger case would be a great improvement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Starter Light Kit I don't do very many video projects that call for a light kit, but when I do, this kit does the job. I wish the Chimera softbox were larger, but it still gives off great soft key lighting. All 4 fixtures can focus and come with barn doors/gel frames, which is a major plus. Biggest con is the case is barely big enough to fit all the gear that is included with the kit. Make sure you take a picture when you get it so you remember exactly how everything went into the case!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HERE'S AN UPDATE TO MY REVIEW BELOW Since writing my initial thoughts about the condition of the lights, I've had contact with folks at Arri. They were extremely helpful. Customer satisfaction and pride in the product were their number one priority. As such, they furnished me with a case that more appropriately fits the amount of equipment provided with this particular kit. They also replaced the damaged barn door. We greatly appreciate this. All companies should function this way. However, my earlier comment about the case stands. It is far too small for the kit. Not only was the barn door damaged, but several dividers were also bent. Last but not least, the black interior hinge -- for lack of a better description -- was punctured and ripped. All of this was the result of the case being far too small. Other than that, this is a great and versatile kit. It's cost-effective and perfect for stand-ups and talking head shoots.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could use about 3 in. more space! Good for throwing in the back of a car and the wheels are a huge help. These are all the lights I need for any basic sit-down interview. My only complaint is the lack of space. It barely fits the lights and stands as is and if you want to through gloves, clothespins, gels, etc. in there it gets tough.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I am a professional video DP. Already used the kit, love it. Other than one of the barn doors being bent when I opened the case (easily bent back) everything was in perfect working order. I love arri lights and this is a great kit.
