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.
