    Impact U1L reviews

    One Floodlight Umbrella Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 48.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good entry level kit I bought this for use in my home studio for taking monthly pictures of my twin girls. Very easy setup, no instructions needed (and none provided). Breaks down to very managable size for storage or travel if needed. I only had one problem with it and that was that one of the thumbscrews for adjusting the angle of the lamp would not clamp. The threaded insert probably wasn't seated properly in the plastic. Two M6 washers and a M6x1 wing nut from your local hardware store will fix it and maintain the tool-less adjustability. Based on reviews it doesn't seem like it's a common problem but if it happens, it's an easy fix. I will be buying another soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful light We plan to use this for video blog type recordings, and for interviews. I've used it so far for one 10-min interview in a small academic office. It made a beautiful light on the interviewee. I felt that it was pretty cheap and works great. It's easy to use, of course. Just turn it on. Setup takes a few minutes, however. And the components are a little large and unwieldy. I'm concerned about breaking the bulb as I haul the thing from building to building - if I can find a bag that will safely hold (most) components I definitely will purchase it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value = good! A huge improvement if you have no lighting solution at all. I got 2 lights so experimenting with the different lighting arrangements is a breeze - and a nice education on lighting. I did need extension cords. The 2 lights (even 1) is ample enough for high shutter speeds. Would say the build quality will last - not commercial grade though. One nice feature to mention is that the mounts come with a hot shoe adapter so if you do upgrade to some speed lights, you can reuse the stands and brellas...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kit for the price I'm a hobbyist photographer that needed a cheap lighting solution for my first real photoshoot. I picked up two of these lights, and borrowed a boom light to complete the setup. These lights were easy to setup, provided an amazing light spread with the umbrellas, and are fairly sturdy. My main complaints are that the included lights burned out very quickly, and the umbrellas diffused the light more than I would have liked. I replaced the bulbs with a couple 250W, and had no troubles the rest of the shoot. The umbrellas... well, I wasn't expecting something terribly great for the price, just something to get the job done, which these did (I originally priced out umbrellas that had a removable, reflective backing to hopefully get better illumination on the subject, but were too expensive for my budget.)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost but not quite This was my first venture into off-camera artificial lighting. I used the light to photograph a small, informal wedding. Everything performed well except the included light bulb. Fortunately, I set the stand up prior to the wedding to make sure I understood how everything worked. The light bulb burned out after about three minutes during the test run, even though I handled it as instructed, wearing a pair of white cotton gloves.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I bought it I bought a pair of these kits, despite my concern about another review saying that the stands weren't as sturdy as that buyer expected. I was happy to find that the stands seem quite sturdy, and that all parts of this kit (even the in-line on/off switch) are impressive in their design, sturdiness, finish and overall pro look. I've been using these stands for interior real estate photography for about a month now, and I really like them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit I use two of these kits without the umbrellas with a fluorescent Eiko bulb for general constant lighting in my art studio. They're great. When I shoot images of my paintings, I have used both the Eiko bulbs and the standard tungsten with umbrellas and get great results from both.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works for Me I am just a hobbyist photographer and needed help with indoor family shots. I don't know what a professional would require in a floodlight, but I purchased two of these floodlight umbrella kits and think they are great. For the first time, my indoor shots weren't yellow.
