    Comments about Impact 4 Socket Fluorescent Fixture:

    This was easy to assemble. I think if it were handled a great deal (location shoots etc.) there would be some significant wear. If you are looking for a really easy, nice light set this is a good one. I was pleased with the output.

    Comments about Impact 4 Socket Fluorescent Fixture:

    Using it for both stills and video. The light quality is nice when used with a softbox. It is inexpensive, so the build quality lacks something, but for the price I can't complain. Bought it as part of a kit. The light stands are way too short for standups, OK for seated subjects.

      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.
