Norman Allure C1000 lights?
 
Has anyone used the Norman Allure C1000 lights? This is a "hot light" with two bulbs (350 and 650) and you can have either one on, or both on, so you have a 350, 650 and 1000 watt light source. Has a fan and they appear to sell for around $160 (best price) for the unit with bulbs. Here is a link:

I want to know if anyone has any experience with these and what they thought.

Cheers,
rfs

I bought one to have for odd situations where I wanted to model with the full light. I normally use strobes. They work well and color balance seems fine but again I use it on rare occasions. The price seemed good so I got one. A problem is that the barn doors you get with them are improperly made in my opinion. They allow light to escape under the back edges. All my soft boxes are for strobes and I've decided not to buy a box for a hot light at this time. Bottom line quality for the price but I'm too used to strobes in my small studio.

Hey Mike I'm curious about how much light the c1000 puts out. What kind of exposure can you expect to shoot at with an iso of 100 and a light to subject distance of 10ft. I watched a french photog. shooting for a Victoria Secrets catalog and that was all he used-tungsten lighting thanks Steve
