The Impact SF-AE56 AC Flash is a handy light source that screws into any household fixture, E26 socket or photo fixture with an E26 (Edison) base. A jack-of-all-trades, the 5,600K SF-AE56 can be used in lamps or home fixtures when lighting interiors with flash, especially during the daytime. Make your own super-lightweight portable flash kit with an optional Impact Porcelain Socket with Umbrella Mount (IMSPUM). Use it as a background light, hair light or accent light. The SF-AE56 can be used in either the master or slave mode thanks to its optical sensor and sync outlet. Trigger it from the camera via the included 11' 3.5mm mini jack sync cord or trigger several of them as slaves responding to the camera's master flash.

      Doesn't fit in some lamps due to size. Thought I'd use it for real estate as it would just screw right into the lamp. Great flash for the size.

              Comments about Impact SF-AE56 AC Flash (110-130VAC):

              I have a photo booth so I needed to make sure the flash could recycle in under 5 seconds. I have 2 of these attached to my booth and they work great. The only problem I had is when the booth was outside, the flash wasn't bright enough to trigger the second light. I will have to have a sync cable run to both lights to get them both to work in daylight. They are almost ready to fire as soon as the camera is.
