The Impact Soft n' Natural Kit #3 by B&H is a 2-light kit created to be a lighting solution for virtually any kind of imaging-making from ecommerce to portraiture, fashion, product, or large groups. The kit contains one 24" Octa softbox with a 4-socket fixture, an 8' air-cushioned light stand, a 20 x 27.5" rectangular softbox with a 4-socket fixture, and a 6' light stand. Eight 26W spiral fluorescent lamps with a daylight color balance of 5000K are included for the fixtures.

The Impact Octa fixture in this kit is sturdily constructed and has a 5/8" stand mount, ceramic Edison sockets, and multi-voltage capability.

The light modifier displays a distinct wrap-around light quality and reflects natural catchlights in your subject's eyes. It's supported by an 8' air-cushioned stand that lets your light down slowly when making height adjustments to avoid damage.

Built similarly to the Octa fixture, the included 4-lamp fixture with rectangular 20 x 27.5" softbox also features a removable inner baffle and front diffuser and is ideal for head and shoulders or product photography, especially with reflective objects.

    If you decide to switch to using LED bulbs will it be possible to use them in this kit?
    Asked by: Terry
    Both the the Impact 4 Socket Fluorescent Fixture, B&H # IMFFS4, and the Impact FF-OF4 Octa 4-Socket Fluorescent Fixture, B&H # IMFFOF4, in the Impact Soft n' Natural Kit #3 listed above will accept Edison-base LED bulbs as long as the ballast on the base of the bulb has enough clearance for the bulbs to fully screw into the light socket. Fluorescent and LED lamps may be used in these fixtures, but tungsten/incandescent lamps CANNOT be used in these light fixtures.

    question

    What is the shipping size and weight of this kit?
    Asked by: Tairo
    The kit is approximately 14 lbs total. The size of the actually shipping box varies according to what the warehouse has at the time and what they feel is best to protect the items.The light stands are the longest part of the kit and the stands when closed are about 27 inches long. So the box will be at least that long.

    question

    Do the boxes in this kit have a 2nd internal diffusers/baffles?
    Asked by: Scott M.
    No. While the Impact 50 x 70 cm Softbox for Fluorescent Fixtures, B&H # IMFFSB70, and the Impact FF-OSB60 Octa Softbox (24 ), B&H # IMFFOSB60, included in the Impact Soft n' Natural Kit #3 both have a removable front diffuser, neither softbox has an internal diffuser due to the design of the softbox and light fixture (due to the size/length of the bulbs, the shallow depth of the softbox, and the fact the bulbs are inside the softbox, an internal baffle would be pressed directly against the bulbs and would be inefficient for usage).

    question

    Do the fluorescent bulbs that come with this set have a color cast?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The bulbs are rated at 5000K color temperature, which is considered daylight. Depending on your camera, location, any other light sources and additional factors, it's always a good idea to do a custom color balance in your camera so that you get the most natural looking scenes.

    question

    What height would the 6 stand be at its lowest possible height?
    Asked by: Linsay C.
    Around 32 to the top of the light, but the soft box adds around 8 when situated horizontally. Vertically, or using the octagonal soft box on it would add more.
