Rate & Review

The Portable Kino Flo Diva-Lite 401 with Travel & Lamp Cases Kit (120VAC) series have become the industry’s most popular professional cool lighting fixtures for video location work. The Diva-Lite 401 portable softlights boast the company’s trademark modular fixture designs with full-range dimming, switching and remote control features. The Universal model can be used anywhere in the world from 100VAC to 240VAC. Diva-Lite fixtures likewise are portable, versatile units designed for the rigors of run and gun lighting for news or commercial video production. All Diva-Lites can go from nighttime to daytime interiors by switching True Match® tungsten for daylight quality lamps. It’s like having two set-ups in one!

Note: Fluorescent tubes are not included

The Diva-Lite 401 and 201 are soft light sources ideally suited for Television or Film documentary shooting styles. The units provide a broad, soft and diffused light. As a cosmetic light source they are ideal for news presenters reporting from locations around the world. Their compact size and rugged lightweight nature make them well suited for travel. The Diva-Lite puts out a broad soft wash of light. The drop off is like the light off of a bounce card. For this reason it is most effective in close proximity to the subject. By being close, the light is softer and easily controlled with the built-in barndoors and detachable louvers.

This instrument is proving to be very popular for interviews. It is small enough to travel easily. It is light enough to rig onto lighting stands or onto grip arms. An interview can be done with as little as a single Diva-Lite 401 and a bounce card. Diva-Lites operate on Kino Flo True Match 55W compact fluorescent lamps. Daylight balanced (KF55) and tungsten balanced (KF32) lamps are available. Light level control is established through an onboard dimmer as well as by 2 and 4 lamp switching. An in-line power switch controls the power. Louvers provide control over the spread of the light.

  • Includes Diva-Lite 401 Fixture: The Diva-Lite 401 light fixture provides a broad, soft and diffuse light source great for photo or video work. Their compact size and rugged build make them well suited for travel, especially when paired with this kit's Travel Case.
  • Kit Supports 4x 21 inch 55W CFL Lamps: With the included Diva-Lite 401 fixture, supporting four 21" Kino Flo True Match 55W compact fluorescent lamps, which can optionally be swapped out with daylight or tungsten balanced lamps (sold separately).
  • Built-In & Remote Dimming: 100-5.0 percent: The Diva-Lite 401 features a built-in ballast and dimmer control that can decrease the amount of light from 100% down to 5.0%. It is not recommended that the dimmer be used to adjust exposure levels, however, because as the lamp cools the color may drift into the magenta spectrum. The optional Remote Dimmer DIM-5 (sold separately) provides tethered access to the light's output when you can't reach the onboard dimmer knob.
  • Energy Efficient, Long Lamp Life: The Diva-Lite is an efficient soft light, which is especially important when shooting on-location and power availability is an issue. All fluorescent lamps require some "burn in" time before they operate at their rated Kelvin temperature and brightness. For dimming products, the lamps perform best after 100 hours of operation. Due to portable nature of the Diva-Lites, the lamps can be damaged from handling and transport before "burning-out" so the included Lamp Case included in this kit will help them last.
  • For Broad & Soft Fluorescent Lighting: With its proprietary chemistry, the True Match lamps in a Kino Flo fixture display a unique quality of soft light. The smooth beam gradient responds especially well to the new generation of HD cameras on the set and works side by side with traditional tungsten sources without corrective filtration.
  • Built-In Barndoors & Center Mount: The Diva-Lite is most effective in close proximity to the subject because it puts out a broad soft wash of light, like the light off of a bounce card. By being close, the light is easier to control with the built-in barndoors and detachable honeycomb louvers. The built-in Center Mount has a ball and socket design with a lock down handle that, when released allows you to reposition the fixture and lock it back down in place. At the other end of the Center Mount is a Baby Receiver (16mm) that can go directly onto a light stand, adding versatility to the way you mount your lights.
  • Lamps At Full Color Temperature in 3 Minutes: These lamps get to full color temperature in just three minutes. When you're finished with them simply turn off power with no need for a cool down period, so you can pack up and move out faster, and work more efficiently.
  • Maximizes Light & Minimizes Heat: Heat management is an important design element of the design of these fixtures. The physical heat of the lamp directly influences color temperature, light output and lamp life. The lamps within these fixtures are correctly spaced to maximize light output and minimize heat. The reflector is vented in the back to increase airflow, while the ends are open to minimize heat build-up. And the power cord is oriented in such a way that the lamp tips will naturally be in a downward position when the fixture is operated vertically.
  • Included Clamshell Travel & Lamp Cases: The Clamshell Travel Case is well suited for transport by small vehicles or local production trucks, with space for the fixture, lamps and a lightweight stand. While pacing your gear, keep your more fragile lamps protected with their very own Lamp Case specially designed to store and protect them from damage in transit.
