How many kinds of photo assignments can you can handle with an outfit like the Impact Three Light Portrait Boom Kit (120VAC)?
You'd be surprised. It's got 2 VS-LCD 400w/s digital monopods, one Impact EX100A 100w/s monopod, a versatile stand that can be used as a boom or hold a reflector, two white umbrellas, two 10' light stands, a radio slave transmitter and receiver, and a kit bag to hold everything.
Light output can be varied in 1/10-stop stages over a 4-stop range with the VS-LCD, accessible through the digital readout. The 100W modeling light can be coupled to the flash, getting brighter or dimmer to match the actual light output, or independently set to the level you want. The monolight accepts Bowens monolight reflectors and head accessories. It also has a limited Auto Dump function, firing the strobe when you reset to a different power level (so the strobe is automatically set to the correct setting for the next flash). A built-in optical slave allows the monolight to be triggered using another flash. The EX100A monopod kit adds an additional 100w/s of light and included 24x24" softbox.
The white umbrellas soften and broaden the light. The Impact aluminum light stands extend to 10' in 4 sections, with sure-twist section locks. If you forget to tighten a section with your light mounted, the light comes down slowly, thanks to the air-cushioning. And the light stands will accept casters, which makes positioning the lights a snap. The convertible boom arm/light stand can be used as a 13' light stand, a boom for a small light, or to hold a reflector up to 60" in diameter. The radio slave transmitter and receiver let's you trigger the strobes without being connected to a sync cord. And you can pack it all into the included kit bag.
