Impact VSD-160 overview

  • 1Description

This is the Impact Two Monolight Softbox Kit (120 VAC). The kit includes two monolights with reflectors, air cushioned light stands, 24 x 32" softboxes, and a sync cord (mini plug to PC). Each basic monolight in this kit has a digital readout coupled with its four-stop power variator. It accepts S-type monolight reflectors and head accessories. The VSD160 has cushioned touch-pad function control buttons. Power is adjustable in 1/10 stop increments, from full to 1/8 power. Its model light intensity may be controlled coupled to, or independent from the strobe power levels you select.

The Impact VSD160 is a good unit for occasional use by a hobbyist, or beginning professional. It is a good choice for building a system - its built-in optical slave fires the flash without wires, from the light of any other flash system. Its flashtube is good for tens of thousands of pops, and is replaceable.

  • 2 x Impact Digital Monolight 160W/s (120VAC)

    The Impact Digital Monolight - 160W/s (120VAC) as part of the VSD Series of monolights is proof that a 160 watt/second monolight does not need to be expensive. The VSD160 provides enough stored power to light a head-shot portrait or small still-life setup. It has features found on monolights that cost twice as much.

    This monolight has a digital readout coupled with its four-stop power variator. It accepts S-type monolight reflectors and head accessories. The VSD160 has cushioned touch-pad function control buttons. Power is adjustable in 1/10 stop increments, from full to 1/8 power. Its model light intensity may be controlled coupled to, or independent from the strobe power levels you select.

    The VSD160 is available as part of several complete lighting kits. Two more powerful versions of this light are the VSD300 and VSD400.

    This monolight has a limited "Auto Dump" feature, which automatically fires the strobe when you reset to a lower power level.
    Built-in optical slave "sees" the light from other flashes, and fires this monolight automatically.
    A Sync Cord with miniplug to PC connection is included.
    Its recycle beep tone may be switched on or off.

  • 2 x Impact Softbox 24 x 32" (61 x 80cm)

    The Impact 24 x 32" Softbox includes a Bowens-type speed ring, so that it is directly compatible with current Bowens and Impact monolights (except the 100EX).

    When compared to larger softboxes, this size will provide a light quality which is more spectral, with a faster gradation from highlight to shadow areas. 24 x 32" is best-suited for a 1/2 length portrait of 1 or 2 people, or a product shot of 2 or 3 smaller-than-a-breadbox items.

    The softbox features a beaded silver interior, and its front face can be removed for easy access to the light and the interior baffle from the front. Also, it provides the option of shooting without the front face for an increased output and more specular quality of light.

    Adapter ring makes it compatible with current Bowens and Impact (except the 100EX) monolights.

Impact VSD-160 reviews

Two Monolight Softbox Kit (120 VAC) is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad, worth the price I bought this kit as a hobbyist who wanted to start working with studio lighting and I've been impressed so far with my findings. For portraits and product photography, the 160 wattseconds are more than enough and I especially enjoy the nice rectangular softboxes and the Bowens mount. Flash recycle was good, around 2-3 seconds for most power levels. There are, however, a few small detractors. The PC sync cords are rubbish, you'll be better off getting another two. Also, the stands are a bit iffy. Good when it comes to holding the lights, but I would watch out/sandbag them when raising things up high. There's the beeping noise which, after a while doesn't become much of a problem at all and, a weak modeling light which I've remedied by cranking the thing all the way up and setting my flash power independently. All in all, for the price you're going to pay for these the softboxes are great and the lights have performed flawlessly (sans some PC cord shenanigans.) Great buy if you're a dedicated hobbyist or enthusiast and you can get over the niggling little details.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No problems I have had this set for around 2 months now. I have had no problems at all. The only complaint and the only reason for four stars is the difficulty in putting together the softboxes. It is extremely tight to get put together. Other than that the stands seem fine and the lights are easy to use once you understand the settings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent The heads work pretty good, not super strong but definitely adequate. The mount onto the stand really has to be tightened hard, which I hope won't strip them over time, otherwise the head will tilt downwards. The soft boxes are nice, and seem pretty sturdy. The stands aren't the best, they didn't really stay put with the weight of the strobe (which really isn't that much). I would say overall for the price, and the soft boxes alone, it's a good deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very decent quality, very good price Light & reliable. Is not for the ultimate pro shooting, but it is very decent for portraits and small events. It's very portable and easy to set up. Build is decent, stands are up to the task and for the price I could not ask for more. Works every time.
Date published: 2008-10-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Terrible Terrible I urge everyone DO NOT BUY. The quality is extremely cheap and poorly build. I purchased 3 and have had consistent problems will each one. They cant support the weight of a medium softbox, numbers in the back will blink on and off, screws are striped and falling off, they make loud beeping noises every time you change a setting. Why are you still considering buying one?????
