Impact Telescopic Collapsible Reflector Holder

The Impact Telescopic Collapsible Reflector Holder is ideal for mounting reflectors such as Impact, Flexfill, or Photoflex light discs up to 60" to a light stand. It mounts to any stand that has a 5/8" diameter top stud. It includes a 5/8" female stand adapter with female 3/8" and 1/4"-20 threads for stands topped with those threads.

Alternately, it can hold a small light head to an extension of almost 3' from the center of your light stand (with the addition of a 3/8" to 5/8" adapter, not included).

Two-section support arm telescopes for use with different size reflectors.

Impact 5-in-1 Collapsible Circular Reflector with Handles (32")

This two-handle 32" 5-1 Circular Collapsible Reflector with Handles from Impact adds a polished-looking quality of light to your photos or videos. The reflector is built around a translucent disc which doesn't reflect as much as the solid white surface, but does exhibit soft neutral reflection. Its primary purpose, however, is as a diffuser that will tame contrast by being held over a subject's head in the harsh noon-day sun. The disc can also be used in situations where you'd use a softbox. Using a disc holder or one of the 3/8" sockets, place your flash or constant light behind the suspended disc for soft, flattering light with open shadows.

The 5-in-1 reflector has handy convenience features that make it easy to use and deliver impressive results, while saving space by folding down to approximately one third of its open size. Impact's smart design provides ergonomic handgrips that allow you to hold the disc in a flat or U-shaped position, or in any way that gets the job done. Each of the grips has additional 3/8"-16 threaded sockets for attachment to accessories or grip equipment. The 5-in-1 Reflector comes with a carry/storage case.

The surfaces are available as removable, reversible sleeves that slip over the disc. Silver offers very high reflective qualities that render a snappy high-contrast look with a cool color bias. Just the opposite, the Gold surface reflects a very warm quality; similar to late afternoon or sunset light. The Black fabric subtracts light from the subject, and can be used to block out unwanted light or to greatly reduce reflections on shiny or reflective surfaces. Finally, the flat White surface provides neutral reflectance with a soft quality of light.

    Impact EX-100A Reviews

    Great Value!

    You can't beat the value this light kit offers! I needed to take some headshot pictures for our office. Didn't want to spend a ton of money and this kit did the trick. Very easy to set up and does exactly what I need. The only feedback I have is that the picture is a bit misleading. I thought the reflector arm attached to the stand while the light was also also attached (making a T shape). I didn't realize that you had to choose between the light or the reflector. You will still need another stand to use the arm for the reflector.

    I was expecting more

    Right off the bat the softbox broke at the corners when I tried to get the rods in place to set it up. Also, the rods are extremely hard to get on the softbox. It’s took me almost an hour with directions. The manual directions weren’t helpful my advice is to find a YouTube video to help you.

    Not the most powerful, but this is a great addition to a small home studio. Soft box is quick and easy to set up and attach.

    I brought the kit to replace one of my EX-100A strobe units. The reflectors and extension mount have come in rather handy with doing portrait work. Great for use with foam core for reflective fill lighting.

    Great small studio light

    I have three of these now, and all have performed flawlessly over the past 15 years or so. Not the most powerful strobe you can buy, but for a small home studio, they are perfect. Unlike some reviewers, I found the soft box to be easy to assemble, but the connection to the strobe could be a little more secure.

    solid light for the price!

    light works well and is pretty simple to use, id recommend getting a wireless transmitter bc the sync cord is kinda weird. also be aware of which kit you're getting, i was not aware that i wasnt getting a stand so i had to go buy one separately

    Great for the price!

    One of the best priced kits out there especially for studio lighting beginners like me. The only issue I had was that the softbox was hard to set up and the sync cable did not connect to my Sony so I had to spend an additional $100 on a transmitter/receiver kit

    does the software that comes with the kit work on windows 10?
    Asked by: Derek B.
    I'm sorry but I'm using the software on a laptop that is running Windows 7. They have a website but B&H wouldn't let me include it (greenscreenwizard com) - they may be able to answer your question for you.

    I have a Pentax K3II and a Sigma 610 DG Super flash. I want to know how to do to be able to connect a flash strobe kit through a radio trigger. Which ones would be compatible for my K3II in order to be able to make the strobes functional and, if possible, also to use the Sigma? What do you recommend buying in addition to this kit?
    Asked by: Mariano R.
    I would recommend purchasing the Vello FreeWave LR Kit with 2 Receivers, B&H # VERFWLRK, for your usage needs. The Impact Two Monolight Kit (220V), B&H # IMEX100A2LKX, has a 1/8 (3.5mm) miniphone sync terminal on the rear of the strobe monolight. The Vello FreeWave LR Kit comes with a miniphone to miniphone cable, so you may connect the Vello FreeWave LR receiver to the Impact monolight. The receiver also has a hot shoe on the top of the unit, onto which you may mount the Sigma EF 610 DG Super Flash. As the kit I listed above comes with two receivers, you may connect one receiver to the Sigma EF 610 DG Super Flash, and one to one of the monolights in the Impact monolight kit. As the Impact monolights have built-in optical slaves, the unit without the Vello receiver will trigger when it sees the light output from the light fixture with the receiver. Do note the output of the Sigma EF 610 DG Super Flash will have to be set manually when using this setup. There is no option that will work and retain TTL automatic flash capability with this setup.

    I am from qatar. My question is whether the mentioned voltage will work in Middle east ?
    Asked by: MAHENDRAN N.
    According to an online search, the voltage used in Qatar is between 220-240V. As such, the Impact One Monolight Kit (220VAC) would be compatible for use in your country. Do note you may need a country plug adapter to convert the plug to the one used in your region, but yes, the system would be compatible for your needs.
