Does anyone know of any truly packable lights. I'm after 2 portable 500watt lamps that have folding refectors ( a bit like the old flashgun reflectors of the 1950s) so they fit easily into luggage for travelling abroad. Any ideas?

Lowell tota - can't get many lights smaller than that except moleeno. For bringing up room ambience or bouncing, they work quite well..... and their reflector can be positioned to work pretty well as a cyc light too. Rifa is a great light, as Robert mentioned - fits in the case with your sticks and makes really beautiful light, available (EXPENSIVE) grids, etc. lowel isn't a bad way to go for cheap portable and easy.

Hi Rob,
you might also wanna have a look at the Dedo 150W/24V dedicated softlight. Very nice output, folds down really small and is light too. And the lamps are amazingly cheap 88 €-cents!
Regards, Dave

I've been doing a fair amount of traveling lately too; shooting a lot of interviews for corporate clients. I've kind of forgotten about the Tota as an option, which I've used before. I think I might include one in my kit for my trip next week, they take up almost no extra space. Thanks for the reminder!
I have been going out with whatever Arri fresnels I can fit into a small case, which is usually a 150w, 300w and either a 650w or a 1k ArriLite with a soft box and a reflector.
