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.

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.
