Works but poorly designed storage cover

By

from Missouri

I purchased my Bright Beam 1000 light a la carte, sans kit. It includes a built-in fan; its instructional booklet states that these lights are DEADLY QUIET. Instead, the noise level is more similar to that of a hair dryer set to its lowest power setting. The light is shipped with a plastic cone-shaped storage cover that has a ½-inch diameter hole at its top center. If you attach this protective cover to the Bright Beam along with its quartz bulb, the bulb will protrude about 1/16-inch out. Even with this cover, I still see the bulb getting possibly damaged during storage or transport. I always remove the bulb after each use. I also purchased the Flashpoint II FP2BD Four-Leaf Barndoor. These barndoors seem to be a universal fit for various reflectors. When attached to the Bright Beam 1000, the barndoors' interior circle frame covers approx. one-inch of the light reflector opening, resulting in about a ½-stop light loss without any of the barndoors being utilized! The barndoors I received used two adjusting screws and a long wire clip to attach to the Bright Beam reflector. I replaced these two screws with shorter ones, as both shipped-screws protruded out too far, making them somewhat of a hassle to transport/store in a case.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  1) Is it REALLY safe to attach a “Flashpoint II Four Leaf Barndoor” (for all Model II Monolights) to the Flashpoint Bright Beam 1000 (Tungsten Quartz Hot Light); the barndoors won’t melt or malfunction, correct??? 2) Approx. how many Flashpoint Bright Beam 1000 lights, power cords, and Flashpoint II Four Leaf Barndoors could you fit into a Flashpoint Lighting Case CS200??? I’m looking for a case that can hold two and maybe three Bright Beam 1000s and its accessories.
ANEAL V  The Flashpoint CS200 Lighting Case is lightweight and is fine for general carrying and storage. However, its internal dividers offer limited padding, and I wouldn’t send this bag through checked luggage. The Adorama name affixed across the bag needs to be smaller and less pronounced. This case holds both of my Bright Beam lights and their disassembled reflectors/barndoors; there’s room to include two additional lights and accessories.
LAKE N  Does it have a fan cooler???
DAVID G  Yes, They are fan cooled. But, they do still generate ALOT of heat. That being said, I'm very happy with them.
Shopper  Does anyone know an approximate weight? I'm wondering if I will need a new stand to hold this. Currently using a Manfrotto flash stand which I'm not sure can hold the weight.
GALEN C  If you have paid quite a bit of money for a light and do use it on a cheap or light weight stand then it may hurt you in the long run. For me I would buy the heavy duty stand and that is because the legs spread out more and give it more support and I have used the camera stands only to have my lights topple over outdoors.
