Photoflex StarLite QL Overview

This is a B&H Photoflex Starlite-OctoDome nxt 3' Basic Kit which includes a Starlite QL fixture with 1000-watt bulb, a Photoflex 3' OctoDome nxt softbox, adapter ring, and LiteStand.

The Photoflex Starlite QL is designed for use with a heat-resistant softbox. The included long bulb extends directly into the center of the box, reflecting light evenly off all four sides. This maximizes both output and efficiency. The Starlite is a flicker-free light source, which provides a light quality that is soft, beautiful, and natural looking, yet powerful enough for the demands of video or digital photography.

Although this kit is supplied for use with 120 AC voltage, it can function with 220-240 voltage with the appropriate optional bulb and adapter plug, available separately.

    In order to use a 250 watt bulb you need an adapter. In order to attach to a softbox you need an adapter. You'll only find that out after you order it and go to set it up and find you need to order more stuff. Add it to the box and up the price. Explain that in the description. Easy fixes.

    Top Quality, great customer service

    While the Photoflex products are a bit pricey. the quality is top notch. I take this light all over to set up on-location studio lighting and I have no doubt it will last a lifetime. With additional rings, the OctoDome will fit on studio strobes or even small flashes.Soon after buying this, I assembled it incorrectly and melted the inner baffle on the tungsten bulb. The folks at Photoflex not only sent me a new baffle for free but they accepted my advice on changing the design to prevent future customers from making the same mistake I did.

    Good Buy

    I added this starlite medium kit as a second, fill light. It is able to keep up with my primarily light by another manufacturer. Softbox, light, and stand are durable. The feature of a long bulb extending into the center is a weakness in design. It would be better to have housing around the bulb. Otherwise, I'm pleased with the results. It is a good, easy to use kit.

    Nice Addition to the small Flexes I have

    I purchased the Starlite QL two-light kit for use in video with an eye to also employ it in still portraits. On location, the two 1000w lights provided a very nice even light for an interview session. Very easy to set up. The bulbs stay hot for a bit too long, especially since they have to be removed in the break-down. The instructions definitely need a good edit and detailing but once you put it together the first time, you're off and running. The stands are very good quality and sturdy. The softbox is very easy to put together and, best of all, take apart. The case is enormous, giving you lots of room for packing beyond the kit. I picked this kit after seriously considering both halogen and fluorescent kits, and I'm very satisfied with my choice.

    Nice easy to use

    Great value for what you get east to set up and use with out burning your hand to adjust.

    Great portable light. Easy to assemble. I like the flexibility of the dual type of light. The 1000 watts tungsten light is great for larger set and the 600 watts daylight bulb is great for portrait. You can also diffuse the box.Love it.

    The best lighting equipment I have yet to own. It was easy to set up and practically already done for me. The quality is outstanding. You can feel the material is durable and the light is perfect for what I needed. I use it for audition tapes and photography. I'm glad I chose to return a cheaper one, because this is well worth every penny.

    Are daylight bulbs available for these lights?

    You can use the ALZO CFL Photo Light Bulb (85W, 120V) B&H # AL151255 and the Photoflex Mogul to E-27 Lamp Adapter B&H # PHFVSKT to fit into the Photoflex Starlite.

    Hi, how large is the bag included in the kit? Can it fit in a flight case in one piece?
    Asked by: ATTILA C.
    The case included with this kit would measure 36 inches long x 10 inches wide. If your flight case is within those dimensions, then the bag will fit.

    Reviewers talk about attaching soft boxes but looking at the photo of the lamp head I see no way to attach one. How do you attach a soft box?

    You would need one of these.
