Arri Training

Last week, Jane from Arri stopped by the store after hours to teach the staff about some of their amazing tungsten and LED lights! Arri is a master in lighting, from efficiency to control, we're proud to be a vendor for such innovation. 


Hey Jane!
Arri's tungsten lights are lightweight and compact, though they're tough! Described as "robust construction of rust-resistant, extruded, die cast aluminium", these lights last for a long time. Despite the small size of ARRI Fresnels, their short focal length, wide angle lenses produce impressive light output and good light distribution over the full beam area. We have the 650, 750+ and 1K in sales. Please call for pricing. 

In rentals we have the ARRI 150, 300, 650, 1K and 2K, pricing listed is price of a 1-day rental/weekly rental:

  • ARRI 150 $20 / $60
  • ARRI 300 $25 / $75
  • ARRI 650 $30 / $90
  • ARRI 1K $40 / $120
  • ARRI 2K $50 / $150

Arri's LED lights were so much fun to play with! Between the +/- green correction and the hue and saturation controls, we were painting the stage red, and many other colors as well! Color temperature, tint and hue can be continuously adjusted from 2800 K to 10,000 K, between full plus or minus green and RGBW colors. 

Another great feature is the ability to zoom to focus the light or make it very wide. This light is listed as a hybrid, meaning it allows for cooling both passively (without a fan) and actively (with a fan). This unit is larger and heavier than the Active version but can run completely silently if needed. And, when they say silent, we can attest that it is silent, indeed!

We were lighting the stage in all kinds of colors and playing with the shadows
