Impact Octacool-6 Overview

The Impact Octacool-6 Fluorescent 2-Light Kit with Softboxes and Bag was put together by B&H for photographers and videographers who want the unique quality of light provided by octagonal softboxes in the studio or on the road. The kit contains two Octacool light fixtures, each with a removable reflector and six 32W fluorescent lamps. Two 29.5" octagonal softboxes provide flattering light and natural looking catchlights and it all fits in the included wheeled kit case.

Impact Octacool-6 Fluorescent Light Kit with Octabox (6 Lamps)

The Impact Octacool-6 Fluorescent Light Kit with Octabox (6 Lamps) is a great choice for the photographer or videographer seeking a broad, flattering light source with unique fall-off characteristics for portraiture, fashion, or events.

Octagonal-shaped light sources have long had a reputation as the preferred portrait-shooter's light source. The shape offers an especially large surface area which produces wrap-around light, which envelopes the subject while creating natural-looking catchlights in the eyes.

The kit is comprised of a separate 6-lamp Octacool light head and removable Octabox. Each of the daylight-balanced 32W lamps outputs 1400 lumens of light for a total of 8400 lumens measured at 3.3 feet. Three switches on the rear of the fixture control 2 lamps each allowing you to vary the output in 2800 lumen increments. The head's standard 5/8" receiver mounts to a huge variety of light stands and gripware with 5/8" studs.

The included Octabox has a removable inner baffle and front face allowing even greater flexibility from hard to ultra-soft light. The light head also comes with a removable aluminum reflector for a bright, contrasty lighting option.

Includes a 29.5˝ Octabox that provides a soft, uniform, diffused light
Noiseless operation allows clear audio for video productions
Cool output allows heat-sensitive subjects to be safely photographed up close
32W screw-in fluorescent lamps with a life expectancy of 6000-8000 hours

Impact LKB-JR Light Kit Bag Jumbo Roller

For the photographer who's going places, the LKB-JR Light Kit Bag Jumbo Roller from Impact will store and protect two fully-assembled OctaCool 6 or 9 lights, two softboxes, cables, gels, and related accessories. The inside of the bag features two compartments separated by a padded, touch-fastening divider. To simplify transport and eliminate lengthy assembly time, each compartment is designed to hold one OctaCool 6 or 9 light with installed CFL lamps, and reflector. Lights are secured by two padded, touch-fastening stabilizer panels with keyhole cutouts designed to fit over the back of each light.

Underneath the lid are three zippered, mesh pockets. Two of the pockets will accommodate an OctaCool 6 or 9 softbox, with the third reserved for 2 light handles, 2 power cords, gels, and other accessories.

The bag may be rolled on a pair of wheels, lifted by the handles or shoulder strap, and stored in an upright position on a set of rubber feet. For security, the heavy-duty zipper has twin metal pulls which may be connected with an optional padlock (user supplied).

For protection and durability, the bag features heavy-duty outer walls encased in a thick layer of high-density foam, and covered with a shell of water-resistant 600D nylon. And for easy identification, the side of the bag has a clear slip-in ID pocket.
