        Comments about Impact Single Socket Fluorescent Fixture:

        the single fixture is nice. you just attach it on top of a light stand. there's a slot for an umbrella. i've used it with the apollo softbox kit from westcott. its pretty tight in there but it works. i do recommend getting the splitter so that you can attach up to 4 bulbs since the impact bulb isn't bright enough to light the whole body. great to start out with

          Comments about Impact Single Socket Fluorescent Fixture:

          This has worked well for me so far together with the softbox cover. I use a 105W CFL bulb which is the maximum the socket is rated for and it's been fine. I think it's a little bulkier than it needs to be, and the way it mounts on a baby pin is a little cheesy, but it works.

            Quality lamp socket

                  I was looking for a quality lamp socket for continuous lighting and chose these. I am very pleased. They are well constructed and have a quality feel. There is no clamp down knob for the umbrella which I thought would be an issue but the spring tension is just enough to hold them securely. I bought the companion 50x50 cm soft box and it works very well with this socket.

                  I was surprised with the quality of such a cheap light kit. They set up quickly and easily. You have to give the lights a minute to "warm up" but they don't get crazy hot like a halogen would.

                    Does what it's supposed to do, but angle hinge doesn't tighten that tightly.

                    I am using this with a 100W CFL and softbox. This provides a nice constant light source for products and times when constant lighting (at higher iso) is required or beneficial. The light base was sturdy, well designed and was very easy to add to my softboxes (which were designed for flash or strobes.) The power switch is nice, and for this wattage, I've not yet found any need to turn down the light so there no need for a power limiting switch. This and the 100W CFL provide an inexpensive method of utilizing my existing lighting setup with constant source lights.

                          I bought this to use for video work, especially for interviews. I bought the kit with the 20" softboxes and it works perfectly and looks professional. I have it on a the light 1.8m stand that you can buy here and holds it and the softbox perfectly. No complaints.
