No barn doors or globe!

Disappointed! The only image of this product includes barn doors and the lamp is lit. It's a good light after you order a bulb that is not included. I'm not happy that things included in the product images are not included! Disappointed at the false representation!!!

Great product, reliable light

I am a hobbyist photographer and acquired this product to hone my skills and product. The ARRI light combined with the barn door feature and the separate dimmer switch allows me to have full control of the light I use in portraits.

Works as described. Doesn't come with barn doors. Aero makes a great product very durable.

Love it!

I love this light! It's more powerful than the Arri 150 (a given) while still being pretty compact. The next one up in this line (Arri 650) is also fantastic but quite large. I use this as a hair light or accent light. I've also used it in several short films and music videos. It's built like a tank (like all Arri's) and extremely versatile.

Great for small area key, fill and back lighting. Useful for applications where larger lights cast too much light.

A high-quality, controllable tungsten fresnel light. Great as a hair light, for fill, or for keying a small subject.

Excellent Light.

As a geezer I've been using hot light fresnels for decades. Much of that time the go-to lights were all from Mole. Arri, I believe has them beat. Extruded aluminum housings, line switches built to last a lifetime and extreme ease of lamping. (how did that guy in 2010 miss the snap open lamp access?) Buy this unit...or any arri unit...and you will never have to replace it..you will want to see your arri family grow.Ideal in the studio and built for the abuse of the road!

question

Does the Arri 300 come with the barn doors or are those an additional cost item?

question

Hello there!I am new in this and I have some questions. I am planning to buy some of this lights. I already have the regular ones with bulbs and softboxes.Does this aril ight it get hot like a house light bulb or hotter?Can I put a softbox on it or it will burn it?what about If I put it aiming to close to the wall or paper backdrops? would it burn them out?Thanks!!!
Asked by: Erik Francisco
Tungsten halogen fixtures like this one would produce a lot of heat and require special softboxes to withstand the heat. It is not advisable to place this light close to a wall or paper backgrounds at risk of fire. A suitable softbox you can use is the Chimera XS Video Pro Plus 1 Softbox (16 x 22 ) B&H # CHVPP1BXS which attaches to this Arri fresnel with the Chimera Speed Ring, Aluminum for Video Pro Bank, B&H # CHSRAC5VP.

question

Is there a burn-in time for this? It smells horrible. Also, when I open it up to full flood, the light shuts off. Is it shorting?
Asked by: David G.
this unit like most with a quartz lamp produces a great deal of heat. i would expect some burn-in time. this is a problem made worse in dirty or dusty environments. the fact that you are losing output at full flood raises other questions. i don't think you have a shorting problem (that would overload the circuit feeding the instrument and cause the protective breaker to trip. then there would be no power to illuminate the lamp when you returned to spot or mid-focus positions. it is likely that there is a loose connection in the feed wires which is stretched to the point where contact is broken and is regained when the position of the lamp carriage is moved again. if this is the case there may be a problem with insulation or some other material in the lamphouse touching or getting too near to the lamp (bulb) causing the burning smell.. pop the lamphouse and do some careful inspection of the socket, feed wires and focusing mechanism. be sure unit is unplugged when you do this. i don't want to responsible for your getting a shock if there is an electrical issue.this is not a normal situation and if you can't find a simple explanation quickly it is time to box the unit up and return it for a functional one. in my experience arriflex and b&h are both exceptional service providers and genuinely concerned about quality and customer satisfaction.

question

Is the adapter for 220 volts just for the plug or do you need a different adapter for the 220 volt bulb?
Asked by: Felix
This head is capable of running 120 and 240v but you will need the plug adapted for whichever country you will be in, as well as a 240v lamp for the light.

question

can you use multiple watt bulbs?
Asked by: Anonymous
It is 120-240VAC; however, it will work with 220-240 AC voltage but you need the appropriate bulb and adapter. I have used multiple watt bulbs in mine and have never had an issue. You just need the adapter. I hope this is helpful! Good luck!!
