The Octa Fluorescent Kit was put together by B&H to provide a core lighting setup suitable for product photography, portraiture and numerous other creative endeavors. The kit includes a four-socket fluorescent fixture, four daylight-balanced spiral fluorescent lamps and a 24" Octa softbox with an 8' air-cushioned light stand.
The Octa Four-Socket Fluorescent Fixture from Impact is a four Edison socket base that accepts CFL fluorescents up to 85W. The base has dual rocker switches, each of which control on/off function for two lamps allowing the creation of a light ratio. The fixture has a multi-voltage power supply for worldwide use (with addition of optional adapter plug) and has a standard 5/8" receiver for light stands and accessories.
The matching Octa Softbox features a highly reflective pebbled interior and a removable front face that attaches with simple touch-fasteners. In use, it renders the signature wrap-around look that it's well known for, as well as natural circular catch-lights in your subject's eyes. The softbox is supported by an Impact 8' stand that gently lowers the light during height adjustments thanks to its air-cushioning.
