The Impact Octacool-9 Fluorescent 2 Light Kit with Octabox (9 Lamps) is a great choice for the photographer or videographer seeking a broad, flattering light source with unique fall-off characteristics for portraiture, fashion or events.

Octagonal-shaped light sources have long had a reputation as the preferred portrait-shooter's light source. The shape offers an especially large surface area which produces that legendary "wrap-around" light, which envelopes the subject while creating natural-looking catchlights in the eyes.

The kit is comprised of two separate 9-lamp Octacool light heads and removable Octaboxes, and two light stands. Each of the provided daylight-balanced 27 - 32W (depending on supply) lamps outputs 1,400 lumens of light for a total of 12,600 lumens measured at 3.3 feet. Five switches on the rear of the fixture allow individual control of lamps allowing 1 - 9 of them to be switched on or off, varying output in 1,400 lumen increments. The head's standard 5/8" receiver mounts to a huge variety of light stands and gripware with 5/8" studs.

The included Octaboxes have removable inner baffles and front faces allowing even greater flexibility from hard to ultra-soft light. Each light head also comes with a removable aluminum reflector for a bright, contrasty lighting option. Two sturdy 9.5' air-cushioned light stands round out the kit.

Comments about Impact Octacool-9 Fluorescent 2 Light Kit with Octabox (9 Lamps):

I bought these to replace a strobe kit. I have no patience for recycling times and misfiring triggers. I also feel like flashes can be distracting for the subjects.

I like the light that comes from these. It's bright but not harsh. I recently took some photos using just one of these and a reflector.

The octoboxes are a pain to put together, like other boxes that use rods to attach to a ring. One of the elastic loops used to attach the inner baffle/diffuser came off the first time I put it together. The stands seem sturdy.

It would be nice if these had come packaged with a case. I ended up purchasing the cases that show up in the recommended accessories.

Comments about Impact Octacool-9 Fluorescent 2 Light Kit with Octabox (9 Lamps):

Love these lights, the quality and amount of light they give are perfect.
My only criticism is the portability and the time it takes to put them together and break down. But neither of those things would stop me from buying another set!
