The Impact Octacool-6 Fluorescent 1 Light Kit with Octabox (6 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 a separate 6-lamp Octacool light head and removable Octabox. Each of the daylight-balanced 28W lamps outputs 1,400 lumens of light for a total of 8,400 lumens measured at 3.3 feet. Three switches on the rear of the fixture control 2 lamps each allowing you to vary the output in 2,800 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 Octabox has a removable inner baffle and front face allowing even greater flexibility from hard to ultra-soft light. The light head also comes with a removable aluminum reflector for a bright, contrasty lighting option. A sturdy 9.5' (2.9) air-cushioned light stand rounds out the kit.

Note! Fixture accepts 27 to 32W lamps. Set of lamps in kit may vary within this range depending on supply.

      Comments about Impact Octacool-6 Fluorescent 1 Light Kit with Octabox (6 Lamps):

      I use this for self-taping for auditions. The light is very bright but soft. The entire unit is lightweight so I can move it without dismantling. Easily assembled. The instructions could tell you what the hard aluminum shell is for I has to call the company to find out.
