The ALZO 200 Umbrella Softbox Light is a compact fluorescent video light ideal for small video productions, as a low-cost, bright green screen background illuminator, and for photography. It can be used with any photo umbrella or brolly and light stand. It features a unique CFL mounting fixture that captures the bulbs and includes an umbrella mount and a light stand mount. The umbrella-style softbox opens like an umbrella with a short shaft. The shaft inserts into the umbrella mount, and then the fixture with softbox is mounted onto the light stand, which is inserted through a zippered slit. The side-mounted CFL bulbs sit deep in the softbox, generating soft broad lighting.
This is one of the least expensive methods of side-illuminating a green screen with soft even light. The stand mount of the fixture includes a friction adjustment to keep the light tilt firmly in place. This is a very transportable light that quickly assembles and disassembles into a small compact package. The ALZO 200 fixture takes advantage of the 2 X increased light output from the side of the CFL light bulb, compared to the light output from the end. What's in the kit: one (1) ALZO 200 Economy Light fixture with 10 feet power cord, two (2) 85W CFL 5500K light bulbs, one (1) 27 x 27 inch umbrella-style softbox, one (1) fabric diffuser (removable/optional), and one (1) 7 foot light stand.
