    Quality products

    I am enjoying these lights and stands. They seem to be well made and I like the way they soften the light. They are a bear to assemble, so I will store them without breaking them down. That is the only negative thing I can say, and that is not going to be a problem for me. If you have to travel, you might want to look at other units.

    awesome lighting set up for videography at a great price

    By Prabu
    Rated 5 out of 5
    Date: 2019-02-11

    I purchased this kit to improve my in-office videography.  I needed a kit that will evenly light the faces without being harsh or make the subjects of the video squint.  This kit absolutely met the need with two soft light boxes with diffusers, fluorescent bulbs and 6 foot stands on which to mount them - a complete setup.  Need a little bit of patience when assembling the light boxes.  But the resulting videos are a quantum improvement in lighting quality. The video camera seems to love this lighting.  I could not be more satisfied with this purchase.

    Great 1st kit !

    These lights are listed as “ fluorescent “ because they are delivered with 8 Eiko CFL lamps. I called B&H to ask if I can use LED bulbs, and was psyched to hear yes. I’ve been using China ball lights for both stills and video on my Canon SL1. This is my first real light kit. Assembly was easy. Sure, I have to have them plugged into a wall indoors or outdoors. I adjust the light by changing wattage, or simply adding or removing lamps from the fixture. Same with color temperature. I’ve been testing them indoors for my first four headshot clients tomorrow in my cabin/studio at one mile above sea level.!

    I was ready to take the next step in my food photography and that step was lighting.  So many opinions and choices.  I visited the B & H website and participated in a live chat.  The adviser understood immediately what my needs and concerns were and quickly guided me into a a great kit that was at a very reasonable price.  Once received the lighting kit far exceeded expectations!  Wow!!

    Nice kit - soft boxes are a bit tricky to put together

    By mrbray
    Rated 4 out of 5

    Overall I think this is an excellent kit. However, being somewhat new to assembling a soft box I found them more than a little troubling to put together. Keep that in mind.

    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 A.
    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 seem to have a very slight warm cast (red). But almost unnoticeable. The temperature adjustments I've made have been slight (e.g. 4500 to 4600).

    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.
