Impact EX100A-2KII reviews

EX-100A 2-Monolight Kit with Softboxes and Stands is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm Impressed I'm using the setup for product shooting and it works just fine. It does what it is advertised to do and it does it well, especially for its price. I give this product a 4 Star rating only because the instruction manual is pretty sad. I can't speak about durability since I just received it. It seems to be put together pretty well though. The case is a plus, the stands seem to be good and it contains everything one needs to start right out of the box. All in all, I'm very happy with the purchase. One other thing, I am totally blown away by its power (and this is entry level unit). For product shooting I'm using the lowest power setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 12,000 flashes in 4 days!!! I was hired to shoot 20 people, over 600 shots each. These units worked perfectly... I even had bought an additional set as back-up, totally expecting at least one of the units to fail. I can't believe the reliability for the price! They never failed once. Subjects were on 107 white seamless paper, I had a flash on each side, high and 45 degrees (typical). Power was set to about 1/3 power with the diffuser. Lighting was incredibly even, consistent and perfectly exposed from shot to shot. For the price, actually, for any price, these are amazing units. Light, compact and quick to set up. Yes... the instructions are the worse, but you easily figure it out. Great buy!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for starters I have been using this kit to learn portrait lighting in a small household room/studio. They are not as powerful as others, but if they are used for individual portrait lighting they are an excellent starter set Some argue that you should buy a more expensive set since they will last forever, but at this price, for the non-professional, I think they are a great deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic starter set! This is a fantastic starter set. I normally shoot outdoors in natural light but wanted to get some extra lights (my speedlite doesn't do it for me)for work at client houses. This works great. Very easy to use. Granted the instructions are awful, but I was able to set it all up pretty quick. Definitely worth the money! Love that it is portable and easy to break down. If you are looking for something to travel with or just use part-time this is the set for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love!!!! These lights are great!! I was skeptical based on the price but one light put out enough power for a newborn shoot in my small studio. They do beep, but I honestly don't notice it too much. Came with instructions to put the soft boxes together. I had the whole thing put together in 5 minutes and was shooting in 10 and have never used strobes before! I always just used natural light from my windows but it is a bit restrictive! (I know people complained about not having instructions and the SB were hard to put together) Awesome purchase!! Can't believe I waited so long to buy these!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter kit The whole point of this kit is pretty clear: provide everything somebody needs to get some monolights in their studio/home studio/small location shoot. A few negligible issues: the units emit a loud beep when they power up and are ready- this can not be disabled. For studio use this is fine but if you need to do a location shoot where noise may be an issue, not so good. Another is to anyone unfamiliar with softboxes, the first attempts at setting one up can be a little discouraging. Impact really needs to include a guide for this in the kit. Even if B&H threw in a quick guide. They're not overly powerful but coming from a hot-shoe strobist background I find these are more than enough. Bottom line: Get these if you want to upgrade from shoe strobes. Great way to do so without spending too much money. They're more than enough to get a feel for monolights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! It's a great starter set! My office is my studio so I need lights I can easily push to the side or break down quickly. I love that it comes with the softboxes and umbrellas for the variety! it's a great set and I can't wait to take it out to weddings too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Killer Starter kit! This is a great portable lighting rig. I do a lot of on location shoots and I dont always need a huge amount of light to get The Shot! The On Board controls give me the flexibility to generate just the right amount of fill light when and where needed. You just have to keep in mind that it is a portable lighting kit and it is fragile or you will have to replace/repair Heads!
