        This is the perfect setup that I was looking for. We shoot video interviews as well as stills. This is just the right balance to get a professional look without a professional budget. Easy set up. Light weight. Fully adjustable. And get's light were we need it.

        Comments about Impact 4 Socket Fluorescent Fixture:

        I use it for portraits and product photography.
        I love how easy it is to set up, to transport and how cool it is.
        I also bought these heads in a kit with soft-boxes (needed).
        Though the boxes attach really easily.
        Cons... well you get what you pay for. These are a 1 trick pony but they do what they need to do.

        The color, power, and heat of course depends more on the lamps with this particular head.

                The item is great, sturdy. Have to be careful when you try to adjust since it completely caves when you loosen it. Other than that, great for portrait shot in a home-studio

                    The four head socket produces excellent light levels with the 26w bulbs. It is rated for up to 600w which means you could use these for out door lighting during the day or night.

                            Product was easy to put together and travel with! I had no problems figuring it out. One thing to remember is to position/align front of soft box with a leg to help with tipping. Lighting was really useful for the event photography I completed- I was happy with the pictures- could have used a 3rd light to help with some shadowing but I am satisfied with the product for the price.

                                  First off, overall these lights are great, perfect soft lights for product photography. The only issue, which is why 1 star has been removed is due to the fact that where the light connects to the light stand, on 1 of the 3 that were purchased, the connecting point was left raw and unpolished, therefore leaving us to drill out the excess plastic to mount it to the light stand and even after that it does not sit flush on the stand. Aside from that defect, the lights are perfect, would recommend to anyone.

                                  As you'll see from PIX; while shopping in B&H store I came up with way to convert my Photoflex 60" Octo Dome I now use with Pro foto flash to a video light incorporating steel ring I cut from my Meema's Passover 10" fry pan. I left the bottom unshined for nostalgia.

                                  Lightweight and packable this little lighting head is pretty remarkable. The 5000k color temp is really, really close to daylight setting on a lot of cameras, in fact I set the "preset" to 5000K and all my interview shoots look amazing. I do wish it set up and broke down a littler easier and had a more secure way to transport the bulbs. Runs very cool.

                                  I use this for home art photography projects. I been using it for a couple months so far. If your looking to dip your toes into the world of studio lighting, this is a great economical way to start.

                                    We use these in combination with the Impact 50 x 70 cm softboxes. They provide plenty of light for our video shoots. Stand connections are ok, but not great. But for the cost, it is a good value. I would buy them again.

                                        It works as expected. Bulbs need a little time to warm up and put out full lumens.

                                          Using the Impact light kit in my home studio. Very lightweight and easy to set up and tear down. Provides great light and the soft box diffusers are a delight to work with. To overcome the lack of controls I simply unscrew 1, 2 or 3 of the 4 lights to gain the effect I'm seeking. The one thing I was a little disappointed about is the lack of a carry case for the entire package but nothing I can't work around.
