B&H has put together this Angler Shadow Focus Spot 300 4-Light Kit with Green Screen for image makers who require a flexible studio system with the ability to drop in their own background. The kit includes four Shadow Focus Spot 300 tungsten lamp heads with 4-way barndoors and a 9.5' heavy-duty, air-cushioned light stand. For this studio setup, a 12' wide Background Support System is included along with a 10x24' chroma key green background for dropping in your own background in post-production. For softening the quality of light, two white translucent 33" umbrellas are included, as are two 16x22" Silverbox Quartz Softboxes with speed rings.
Angler Shadow Focus Spot 300 Focusing Flood Light
The Angler Shadow Focus Spot 300 Focusing Flood Light is a 300W focusable fixture with a wide-angle 21-40° beam angle that's variable with a simple knob. The safety-glass-protected, separately purchased lamp has a color temperature of approximately 3100K with an average lamp life of 100 hours. Four-way barndoors are included to put the light where you want it and keep it off of areas that you don't. Convenience features include a cool-touch handle for safe tilting adjustments and a 12.5' power cable with an in-line switch and a grounded 3-prong US/North American plug.
Heavy Duty Cable
Impact Heavy-Duty Air-Cushioned Light Stand (Black, 9.5')
This Impact Heavy-Duty Air-Cushioned Light Stand is a black anodized aluminum support that rises to a height of 9.5' and folds down to 42" for storage and transport. The stand will handle up to 22 lb and is topped with a removable 5/8" spigot with 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads. It has a wide footprint of 52" for greater stability. Air cushioning gently lowers the light when making height adjustments to protect equipment and fingers.
Impact Umbrella - White Translucent (33")
Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a lightbox.
Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.
This Impact 33" White Translucent Umbrella is suggested for use in head-and-shoulders portraits for one or two persons.
Angler Silverbox Quartz Softbox (16x22")
The 16x22" Angler 7262-S-18 Silverbox Quartz Softbox is a highly versatile light-shaping tool designed for use with strobes, LEDs, fluorescent lights and hot lights up to 300W.
This small softbox allows photographers to place it where larger softboxes can't go. It's ideal for tabletop and small product work especially with reflective objects that demand a rectilinear reflection. This size and weight softbox is also a good choice for overhead mounting on a boom for use as a hair light or background light.
The Silverbox has a textured silver interior for maximum output and heat resistance. It also has an additional control; it accepts an optional fabric grid which mounts to the recessed lip of the softbox with touch-fasteners. The grid gives more directional control of the light source by narrowing the beam so the light goes only where you want it to. While designed to be paired with the Angler Shadow Focus Spot, the Silverbox will fit other brands with separate purchase of a speedring. Every Silverbox comes with a carrying case.
Impact BGS-S12-V2 Background Support System (12')
The lightweight and portable BGS-S12-V2 Background Support System from Impact consists of two support stands, which extend to a maximum height of 10.5'. Four 3' crossbar sections are included, so you can assemble a crossbar that extends 6, 9, or 12' wide. The support system holds up to 9' x 12 yd seamless paper rolls or backdrops weighing up to 20 lb. This system becomes ideal for shooting portraiture or tabletop photography and can break down to a folded length of 3.5' to always be ready to go. For added functionality, the support stands convert to a pair of light stands when the top adapters are removed. Both stands feature an industry-standard 5/8ʺ spigot with a 3/8ʺ threaded post, so you can mount lights, LEDs, or flashes as well as light-shaping accessories like umbrellas or reflectors. The included canvas bag makes it convenient to carry and store the background support system.
Lightweight and Portable
Impact Chroma Muslin Background (10 x 24', Green)
Use the Impact Chroma Muslin Background if you go on a shoot and need to throw up a quick background for a headshot. Impact makes this chroma muslin background that is perfect for the job. This background also features a hemmed loop, which allows it to be used on a crossbar.
Made from rugged muslin, the chroma colors are great for any kind of tv or video production. Supplied in its own carry bag, it can be folded with ease and stores easily in its own see-thru bag. And, if you own more than one, the see-thru feature allows you to quickly choose which Impact background you need without having to open several bags.
Angler Speed Ring for Angler Shadow Focus Spot
The Speed Ring for the Angler Shadow Focus Spot from Angler features indexed flex rod holes that allow you to effortlessly mount any square, rectangular, strip, or octagonal Luxbanx softbox to a light head such as the Qualite QL-3560 Daylight LED Floodlight from Impact. The ring will also fit most other brands of softbox. The sturdy all-metal ring rotates 360 degrees to facilitate orientation or to clear obstacles in tight quarters. It has 3/8"-16 taps on two sides to allow mounting directly to grip gear such as Impact's Swivel Umbrella Adapter, 3 Section Double Articulated Arm, Super Clamp, and more.
