Smith-Victor SL270 overview

  • 1Description

The Smith-Victor SL270 3-Light 1350 Watt Softlight Video Interview Kit (120-240V AC/12 VDC)provides a 3 point light system that is compact, easy to transport and quick to set up. It includes 2 softlights, a video light, barndoors, bulbs, stands and a wheeled case.

As an alternative to large, clumsy softboxes or umbrellas, the 2- 650 watt Softlights each measure only 9 x 7 x 5" (HxWxD) and provide soft, diffused light from their concealed bulb.

The SV840 Video Light is very versatile. As equipped, it works from 120VAC current with the 10' power cord, and can be stand-mounted with its included adapter. It has integral barndoors for control of the beam. This fixture is excellent for use as a hair light, or background light.

For use on the run, the SV840 can be outfitted with an optional battery pack, such as the BP1-C, BP3, or fanny pack  battery systems. The fixture has a swing-out diachronic filter to match daylight outdoors. It can also be used on a video camera's shoe mount by removing the #575 stand adapter.
