Impact VC-500WLN overview

  • 1Description

The Impact VC-500WLN 3-500Ws Digital Monolight with Transmitter Kit is built around three VC-500WLN flash heads. Each head comes with a reflector, flashtube, 250W modeling lamp, power cable, and light stand. The included 16-channel, 4-group radio transmitter triggers the head's built-in receivers from up to 328' away. Three white umbrellas with black backing, a 24 x 36" softbox with silver interior and speedring, and a wheeled case are also included.

The VC-500WLN 500Ws Digital monolights have full to 1/32 power range adjustable over 6 stops in 1/10 stop increments, very fast recycling time (1.5 seconds @ full power) and Proportional, Independent and Off settings for the 250W modeling light. Flash durations as short as 1/1200 sec freeze action with moving subjects while the VC-500WLN's 5600K color temperature remains constant within +/- 100K regardless of power setting.

You can freely mix and match your remote flash units with the VC-500WLN. The flash's 7 optical slave modes allow it to interface with an on-camera TTL flashes, triggering with up to 5 pre-flashes when needed. The VC-500WLN's Time Frame and Block Time functions enlarge the unit's circle of compatibility with the many brands available by effectively adapting for the differences in their pre-flash durations. Selected settings are indicated on the VC-500WLN's digital display when activated by the user.

A number of systems are employed to increase the VC-500WL's longevity and ensure safety. The fan-cooled housing with adaptive thermal control protects the flash heads CMOS circuitry and the user-replaceable modeling lamp and flash tube.

    Impact VC-500WLN reviews

    VC-500WLN 3-500Ws Digital Monolight with Transmitter Kit is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Professional Quality I chose this light kit to use for studio and on-location portrait/headshot work, and am quite impressed with the quality of the equipment, especially when the price is factored in. The monolights appear to be quite durable and provide an impressive set of features, including: 500W of strobe power, adjustable by 1/10 of a stop, 250W modeling lamp, adjustable in 6 steps, a reliable built-in trigger system, excellent recycle times, bright LED power read-outs on each light, upgraded lightstands, good quality reflecting umbrellas, and a very good rectangular soft box. When use for mobile shoots, the carrying case with telescoping handle and wheels is also a big plus, with plenty of room inside. I slid the transmitter on my camera, everything worked prefected.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice equipment but malfunctioning carrying case Earlier today I set up my monolight set up with a transmitter. Everything worked as promised and I am looking forward to putting them to regular use as I play with light and shadow in my photos.� However, the carrying case has a handle which, with the very first time I gripped it, broke loose from the case.� It has a cheap small fastener that couldn't possibly sustain the weight of the case. If it is not going to be functional why have it?� And when it falls off before I have even opened to the good products inside, it was not the best of first impressions. Still the main reason for the purchase, the equipment, I'm very happy with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter kit Good quality, durable light stands. Lights are light weight and very quick to set up and adjust. Built in wireless transmitter requires no set up what so ever. On-camera wireless trigger seems a little flimsy, but as long as you don't step on it, it does the job and seems to have wide range. Pretty good padded bag, not a hard case so wouldn't put anything on top of it when traveling though. Great lights for a small studio, beginner, or someone who needs a portable kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Professional Quality I recently used this product for shots in a party. I was impressed by the high quality of my images. If you understand about aperture, f-stop and ISO, you will truely love this product. Very nice building, good wireless control system, fast recycling, high power... It works exactly as advertised.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pros & Cons Pros: These lights are great for any situation.� I have used them for Single portraits and for a large groups of 30 to 40 people.� I’m very happy with the quality of my image and the nice soft light.� Cons: The light kit is super heavy!� It takes two of us to lift it into the car and carry down the stairs. If you are looking for lightweight lighting kit, I would consider looking elsewhere.� I also purchase the Impact - Snoot for Select Impact/Bowens S-Mount Strobes and Impact Background Reflector for Impact/Bowens Mount Strobes. WARNING! they get extremely hot very fast. The modeling light bulb and 7" Reflectors are also Super hot. Yes like any lighting system, they get warm after a while, but these are pretty extreme. For that, I'm giving these lights 4 stars maybe 3.5.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Defective and Broken I bought this kit in April 2016, one monolight was defective from the start, the flash wouldn't go off and the LCD panel was missing letters, I was guessing the settings. Then, 1 year later another mono blow up when I was using it. I'm left with just one.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Work Perfectly Works perfectly, like I say in the title. My only issue was when I received my order, some of the screws on the light itself were damaged.
    Date published: 2018-03-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice lighting system So far so good. Have been enjoying getting familiar with this light kit. Would purchase again
