The Impact Studio Kit offers 2 monolights with a total of 600Ws of power and enough supports and light shaping tools to handle a wide variety of subject matter.
The 2 included VSD300 Monolights each have a digital readout and accept S-type monolight reflectors and head accessories, such as the included Impact Background Reflector and Snoot. The flash heads feature cushioned touch-pad function control buttons and power control that is adjustable in 1/10 stop increments, from full to 1/8 power. The 100W modeling lamps can be set to proportional so that you can easily preview your lighting effects or adjusted manually to any light intensity that you wish. Two air-cushioned light stands provide protection from impact damage while adjusting their height. Besides a sync cord and spare fuse, each light ships with a 7.0" grid reflector that accepts the included 40 degree grid.
The kit's 24 x 32" softbox is ideal for portrait or product work while the included White Translucent Umbrella offers a choice of traditional bounce diffusion or a "shoot through" option that is similar to the effect of the softbox. It all fits in the provided Impact Light Kit Bag that features a zippered closure, adjustable internal dividers and carry handles that convert to a shoulder strap.
2 x Impact Digital Monolight 300W/s (120VAC)
The Impact Digital Monolight 300W/s (120VAC) as part of the VSD Series of monolights is proof that a 300 watt/second monolight does not need to be expensive. The VSD300 provides enough stored power to easily light a portrait or small still-life setup. It has features found on monolights that cost twice as much.
This monolight has a digital readout coupled with its four-stop power variator. It accepts S-type monolight reflectors and head accessories. The VSD300 has cushioned touch-pad function control buttons. Power is adjustable in 1/10 stop increments, from full to 1/8 power. Its model light intensity may be controlled coupled to, or independent from the strobe power levels you select.
The VSD300 is available as part of several complete lighting kits. A slightly more powerful version of this light is the VSD400.
This monolight has a limited "Auto Dump" feature, which automatically fires the strobe when you reset to a lower power level.
Built-in optical slave "sees" the light from other flashes, and fires this monolight automatically.
A Sync Cord with miniplug to PC connection is included.
Its recycle beep tone may be switched on or off.
Impact White Translucent Umbrella (43")
Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a lightbox.
Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.
This Impact 43" White Translucent Umbrella is suggested for use in mid-length portraits for one or two persons.
Impact Luxbanx Medium Rectangular Softbox (24 x 32")
The Luxbanx Medium Rectangular Softbox from Impact is an economical 24 x 32" light shaping tool for strobes that's ideal for small sets, single or dual portraits, half to three-quarter length fashion, and general product photography. The softbox features a soft white interior, removable front diffuser and removable inner baffle. The diffuser and baffle can be used together for maximum softening of the output. Removing the inner baffle will give you a more crisp light quality with higher contrast, while shedding the front and inner diffusers turns the Luxbanx into a large reflector with maximum brightness and contrast.
The versatile Luxbanx has an additional control via an optional fabric grid which mounts to the recessed lip of the softbox with touch-fasteners. The grid narrows and concentrates the light's beam forward, controlling spill and adding directional control to the Luxbanx's attributes. Every Luxbanx comes with a carrying case and a spare Flex Rod. Separate purchase of a speed ring that matches your strobe's mount is required for use. Impact makes models to fit most popular brands.

Impact Background Reflector for Impact/Bowens Mount Strobes
This Impact Background Reflector for Impact/Bowens Mount Strobes is a sconce-shaped light modifier that outputs an oval, fan-like beam of light that is ideal for placing behind the subject for even lighting of the background. Alternately, you can place it closer to the background for a corona or graduated effect or backlight the subject to separate him or her from the background. The reflector has handy clips to attach gels and diffusion material and a rotation mechanism that allows you to vary the direction of the light.
The Background Reflector is compatible with Impact Monolights, Bowens, Travelite, Cowboy, Interfit Stellar, JTL, Photoflex, Rime Lite, and Westcott flash heads.

Impact Light Kit Bag (34 x 13.5 x 12")

The bag is designed to hold three monolights along with their reflectors (such as Impact VC500LR), four stands, boom, umbrellas, cables and other support gear but can also be used to hold other lighting equipment instead. You'll have plenty of room to take along enough lighting gear for a portrait session - all packed in an organized and accessible way.

For additional smaller equipment such as cables and small accessories, there are three interior 10.5 x 8.0" zippered mesh pockets.
The bag is made from soft, padded water-resistant nylon and contains six movable touch fastened interior dividers (6 large, 2 small) that will permit you to configure the bag to accommodate the gear you need that day.
