Useful if you're doing some work outside in the evenings this winter. Alternatively use it with a small light tent for well lit product shots.

Any good?
I'm sure there's better / marginally sturdier but good enough for general work. The bulbs have not gone yet (reviews say they don't last long) but they are cheap to replace anyway.
They've been this price for a long time, though never seemed to be in stock when I checked !

Anyone know if these are any good for filming? For use as blondes or redheads?

I'm thinking the same. Need to film an advert this week for college and may need some decent light. They have the same bulbs light output as red heads but no shutters and i think there may be a grill on the front, may be able to take it off. I'm going to try them anyway.

You're doing it wrong.

You need something that receives light known as a camera.
This looks the same as one that Screwfix sell. If it is, IMHO, it's fairly rubbish. I have had one a while and the quality is quite poor. The lamps break easily, the adjustment on the lamp heads is limited and unstable, and the lifespan is low. On mine, one of the lamp heads has stopped working altogether, plus I had to alter the way the lights are held in place, as they kept tilting down. Another thing to be aware of is that these get very hot when switched on, so could be unsuitable / unsafe in some situations.

Site light and heaters all in one, these bang out a lot of heat. Can't say much for the quality of Silverline products although it does mention a 3 year warranty.

Why would you take the grill off the front it's not going to cast anything over your action, jsut get some scrim and soften these up and they'll be fine!
