The Lowel LC-78 Retrofit Kit is for those of you who own an original Rifa 88, Umbrella Style Softbox. The eX Rifa socket consists of two main parts -- the base, and a removable, twist-turn socket that may be changed out for another eX socket that accepts single, or three E26 screw-in bulbs, or a socket that accepts lower wattage halogen bulbs.

Adds Versatility
Choose between low- or high-wattage halogen, screw-in fluorescent or incandescent lamps, using different modules.
Easy Change
Each available module connects with a quick twist of the wrist.
Retrofit Service Available

    LC-78 User Retrofit Kit for Rifa 88 to Rifa eX88 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than HMI ballast electric upgrade I am a still photographer. Have used lowel tungsten lighting for 20 plus years. Switched to Lowel fluorescent lights. Changing the Rifa 88 to Rifa eX88, is by far the best, and least costliest change over from tungsten to fluorescent I have know of. Before the switch, I had to use blue gels to get tungsten lights to match my flash, and daylight. Also had to worry about circuts being blown, when using two, or more tungsten lights. By changing over to Lowel's Rifa eX & Scandles fluorescent lighting. I no longer had to use the gels, and worries about blown circuts went out the window. Added bonus, is, I can change the fluoresent bulbs from daylight to tungsten & lights can be powered by inverter battery packs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made and well-documented Another fine product from the Rifa line at Lowel. The Retrofit Kit came with all the required hardware and well-written instructions for transforming my Rifa lights into Rifa eX lights. The dismantle and build-up of the light took 15 minutes. Make sure you have a workbench and bright lights for the operation. Everything works as it was designed. It gives my Rifas new life when I need indoor daylight balanced soft-boxes. Make sure you opt for the higher wattage bulbs...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rifa 88 Retrofit life saver After about 5 years of fairly intense use, the cord on my Rifa 88 fried... right at the point where it comes out of the metal casing at the end of the light fixture. I take this light with me everywhere I go. It's like a trusted friend... so I was quite lost. Imagine how excited I was when I went on line and discovered the retrofit part would replace the exact piece I needed! I ordered the part and was able to install it personally which is no small surprise to me... and I've got my favourite light back! In the meantime I ordered another light at the same cost as this part.... needless to say it's not something I'll use except in an emergency. 4 stars out of 5. Love the light... costs quite a bit more... but if this lasts another 5 years it's going to be a great deal in the end.
