About the SlimLight Kits Lighting Capabilities
For fast setups and beautiful light quality, nothing surpasses the Lowel Rifa. Its smooth, soft light and fast 60-second setup makes beautiful results easy to achieve. The Lowel Blender’s tungsten & daylight LED’s blend quickly and easily to match the mixed light sources of your real world location, or create a contrasting color mix to make your subject stand out. With the efficiency of the LED Blender, a SlimLight three-light kit draws only 232 watts.
The compact, focusable Lowel Pro-light gives an exquisite, even light with Fresnel-like shadow quality, evenly dispersed flood, and a uniform spot with significant barndoor cut. Its compact size makes it the perfect low-level key or accent light, fill light (with diffusion), or back-light for interviews and other small shooting areas.
Each kit contains a 200W Rifa eX 44 dedicated tungsten-halogen softlight, matched with either compact color mixing Lowel Blender LED(s), or focusable tungsten-halogen 200W Pro-light(s), plus Uni TO Stands, all in our popular Slim Litebag.
