  • Impact White Translucent Umbrella (43")

    This 43" White Translucent Umbrella from Impact is a versatile all-around light modifier that will create a pleasing light that's far less harsh than a bare light source. It can be used with flash, LED, or fluorescent light sources. As a shoot-through umbrella, it broadens and softens the light source output and minimizes shadows, making it ideal for portrait photography. The translucent fabric's diffusing properties allow light source to be placed close to a subject for a softer light that's also great for weddings and fashion. It has a standard size 8mm umbrella shaft that is compatible with most umbrella mounts.

    This 43" diameter umbrella is useful for lighting one or two people for mid- and full-length portraits. It can also be reversed to use as a bounce-style umbrella to cover a larger image area.

    Impact Light Kit Bag #2 (34 x 13.5 x 12")

    The black Light Kit Bag #2 (34 x 13.5 x 12") from Impact makes transporting your lighting kit easy and secure. The bag is designed to hold three monolights along with their reflectors (such as Impact VC500LR), four stands, boom, umbrellas, cables and other support gear but can also be used to hold other lighting equipment instead. You'll have plenty of room to take along enough lighting gear for a portrait session - all packed in an organized and accessible way. A touch fastened divider tray separates the stands, boom and umbrellas from the lights preventing them from bumping together and causing scratches or damage. For additional smaller equipment such as cables and small accessories, there are three interior 10.5 x 8.0" zippered mesh pockets.

    The bag is made from soft, padded water-resistant nylon and contains six movable touch fastened interior dividers (6 large, 2 small) that will permit you to configure the bag to accommodate the gear you need that day. The Light Kit Bag is carried by its two 2" wide overlapping top carry handles that can easily be extended into dual shoulder straps. The contents are accessed via dual zippers that when placed together will accept a user-supplied lock. For even more protection, the bottom of the bag contains three rubber feet for when the bag is placed on the ground. And the bag folds down to a quarter of its height for convenient storage and easy setup. Whether for storage or transport, the Impact Light Kit Bag will serve both pro or amateur well.

    question

    Anyone know how to set up the boom stand?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    You have to open up the clamp on the boom arm super wide. Like to the point where you think it's going to fall apart. Then you can slip the smaller hole right over top of the peg on the top of the light stand. You'll have to extend the top riser of the light stand a bit so you have space to slide it down. Then you can tighten it down on the top section of the light stand. The big hole on the boom arm bracket will be too loose. You have to use the small hole.

    question

    Are these lights disable with a dimmer?
    Asked by: Vlad N.
    If you need dimmers for the lights in the Impact Three-Light Mini-Boom Kit, I would recommend purchasing the Impact D1000 1,000W AC Dimmer Control (110-120V), B&H # IMD1000, for each of the lights in the kit.

    Can these be used with cool lights?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The screw base sockets in this kit can accept up to a 32W compact fluorescent lamp. A good example of such is the Impact Spiral Fluorescent Lamp (32W/120V) B&H # IMSF32120. Please see the image below:

    question

    What kind of gels should I order for the boom light?
    Asked by: Lynette N.
    The right type of gels to use would be dependent on your specific application. In general, its best to start out with a kit of gels like the Rosco Photo Lighting Filter Kit (12 x 12 ). This kit comes with a variety of colors and can be clip onto the Impact 5 Reflector Floodlight in the kit using two Impact Multiclips. It is important to leave about 2-3 inch gap between the gel and the light to prevent any hazards caused by the heat. Please see the images below for reference.
