They are sturdy, function just fine, and are reasonably priced.

The ideal lighting for museums who shoot in exotic locations
(and who do not have the huge budgets of a commercial studio) are Lowel Lights.

Readers may notice that these FLAAR web sites tend to review what we use ourselves, for years. The advantage of a FLAAR review is that we practice what we preach. I have used Lowel Lights for decades. We appreciate the president of Lowel Lighting sending a wider variety of lights several years ago so that we could expand our experience to the Lowel Omni and Lowel DP lights, beyond just the basic Lowel TotaLights.

If you need light over a larger area, the TotaLight is a potential choice. If you need to concentrate light on a single object, such as in product photography, then you should elect the Lowel Omni or Lowel DP. The Omni and DP concentrate the light much more effectively on a small area.

The Omni and DP are especially good for digital scanning backs (which require huge amounts of light).

The main reason I selected Lowel TotaLights over twenty years ago was their small size. This makes them lightweight and easy to carry. Also, the light folds up and forms its own protective shell. In decades of photography not a single Lowel TotaLight has ever broken or failed (despite dedicated airport baggage personnel and their suitcase gymnastics, not to mention novice assistants). The Lowels have crashed to the ground as 12-foot high light stands got tipped over. The lamps (bulbs) may fracture, but never a Lowel fixture.

 

There are many kinds of Lowel Lighting in addition to that we are able to picture her. To get additional informatios, telephone, toll free 1- 800 334-3426; for questions on equipment, e-mail: equip@lowel.com; for general questions, e-mail: info@lowel.com. FLAAR has used Lowel Lighting foe over 34 years and those fixtures are still working just fine. That's why we recommend this brand. Their design is very nice and they are resistent as well.
