Very Compact, lightweight, as well as self-contained, the Rifa-Lite 88eX uses a unique umbrella type design achieving a quick and easy setup and strike capability. A 32 x 32" (81 x 81cm) heat-resistant woven glass fabric, with a front diffu ser provides sufficient illumination with soft shadows. This version includes a 1000 watt/120v FEL Lamp
The Accessory lampheads of the Rifa eXchange System offer increased versatility to Rifa users. Now your Rifa eX can use screw-threaded daylight fluorescent lamps, or lower wattage & lower voltage tungsten halogen lamps.
If you use your Rifa eX with its standard supplied lamphead, you would still setup & strike in the normal manner. The standard supplied head for the Rifa eX models 55, 66 & 88 is the TH-X1000. The standard supplied head for the Rifa eX 44 is (the lower max. wattage) TH-X300. The TH-X300 head will fit the 55, 66 & 88 Rifa eX's, but the TH-X1000 will not fit the Rifa eX 44.
If you use the fluorescent accessory heads, you will find that you can't pack up the light with them installed. Recommended practice is to store the Rifa eX with its supplied lamphead installed. It is not necessary to remove the supplied standard head when storing or shipping the light.
60 Second Set-up:
Unlike common, inefficient soft boxes that must first be assembled and then attached to a light as an accessory, the Rifa is both light and soft box combined. Rifa-lites can easily go from carry bag to stand, fully set up, in oneminute or less.
