Also, the dimmer box tends to get hot...hope it's rated for the 800W of the bulb. It's not that big a dimmer.
Although the power requirements and heat are moving people toward fluorescents and LEDs, if you need an open faced 3200K halogen setup a few of these are a great value for the price. These as delivered to me look very close to the photo shown, and if anything are improved.
Two feet down the thick 18AWG cord is a small dimmer/switch/fuse box that works well for both of my units. There is an additional 7 feet of cord past that. The barndoors have handy clips built into them and lock somewhat securely onto the fixture. The included globe works fine. There is a slight buzz as is typical with these when using a dimmer, but it won't be loud enough to bother your sound department much.
The focus control lets you set how bright the center will be. There is some stippling at the edge of the circle (probably from the safety screen) that the barndoors or some diffusion will take care of. The center is nice and smooth. The overall build is fine and better than one would expect for the dough.
Be sure to follow the standard safety precautions: never handle the halogen bulb with your bare hands (the oils will make it blow up from the heat) and use safety chains to ensure the fixture and doors don't fall onto someone's head. It would be nice if spare fuses were included but they aren't. I will write in if these fail in practice but so far so good.
they are dimmable which is good, solid body, fan inside the housing of the light
3200k gives a yellow tint
It was an Ok purchase if this is what your looking for there great!!
This light is basically not suited for professional use. For a hobbyist or film student its great but if you plan on using it to make money get something better.
