Interfit F5 Overview

The F5 Three-Head Fluorescent Lighting Kit with Boom Arm from Interfit is a versatile photo or video lighting solution for portraits, products, or e-commerce in the studio or on the road. The kit includes three F5 five-lamp fixtures, each with a 20 x 28" softbox and five daylight-balanced compact fluorescent lamps. A boom clamp and boom that extends from 30 to 55" is included, as well as a 10' air-cushioned stand to support it and a 5.5 lb capacity counterweight bag to stabilize it. Two 7.5' air-cushioned stands are provided for the other two lamp heads and softboxes.

Having an overhead light has a significant effect of the quality of light in your setup. In portraiture and group photography the fixture and softbox can be used as a hairlight to add dimension to the shot by separating the subject from the background. Alternately, the boom light could be used to light the background or small cyc from above, while rotating the light allows you to feather the output to create a graduated background. Using a light overhead and pointed down at the subject's face produces a high fashion look, and when used in product photography this setup adds modeling to the item to selectively reveal its form.

The F5 head has a sturdy but lightweight polycarbonate construction with five Edison base sockets. Power can be regulated via three toggles on the unit's back panel that power on/off two lamps per switch and produce the tungsten equivalent of up to 800W. The lamp head has a tilting adapter with an industry-standard receiver for mounting on stands with a 5/8" (16mm) top stud. It's also conveniently designed to mount directly onto the included 20 x 28" softboxes without using a speed ring.

I'm space limited, what is the footprint of the stands?
Asked by: Diane
If you think of the base as an equilateral triangle, the length of the side is 28.75” on the two 7.5’ stands when the support bars are horizontal. You can reduce the distance some (down to 22") by moving the central bar up or down at the expense of stability but you can stabilize the base with a sandbag. The 10 ‘ stand has a longer span ... 29.5” or longer.

I just ordered this kit and have another Interfit F5 light. Are there any cases that can hold 4 of these?
Asked by: Jesse
The Photoflex Transpac Dual Kit Case, BH # PHTPDKC would be ideal to hold 4 Interfit F5 fixtures with their lamps and the included stands. https://bhpho.to/3sM5RNQ
