Impact VSD-300 overview

  • 1Description

This is the Impact Two Monolight Softbox Kit. The VSD300 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. This kit provides ample power to light a 3 - 4 person full-length portrait.

The Impact VS300 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 thousands of pops, and is replaceable.

This 2 monolight kit includes 2 reflectors, air-cushioned light stands, 24 x 32" softboxes with speedrings and a mini plug to PC sync cord.

  • 2 x Impact Digital Monolight 300Ws

    The Impact Digital Monolight 300Ws as part of the VSD Series of monolights is proof that a 300 watt-second monolight does not need to be expensive. The VSD300 provides enough stored power to easily light a 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 VSD300 has cushioned touch-pad function control buttons. Power is adjustable in 1/10 stop increments, from full to 1/8 power. Its modeling light intensity may be controlled coupled to, or independent from, the strobe power levels you select.

    The VSD300 is available as part of several complete lighting kits. A slightly more powerful version of this light is the 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 Luxbanx Medium Rectangular Softbox (24 x 32")

    The Luxbanx Medium Rectangular Softbox from Impact is an economical 24 x 32" light shaping tool for strobes that's ideal for small sets, single or dual portraits, half to three-quarter length fashion, and general product photography. The softbox features a soft white interior, removable front diffuser and removable inner baffle. The diffuser and baffle can be used together for maximum softening of the output. Removing the inner baffle will give you a more crisp light quality with higher contrast, while shedding the front and inner diffusers turns the Luxbanx into a large reflector with maximum brightness and contrast.

    The versatile Luxbanx has an additional control via an optional fabric grid which mounts to the recessed lip of the softbox with touch-fasteners. The grid narrows and concentrates the light's beam forward, controlling spill and adding directional control to the Luxbanx's attributes. Every Luxbanx comes with a carrying case and a spare Flex Rod. Separate purchase of a speed ring that matches your strobe's mount is required for use. Impact makes models to fit most popular brands.

Impact VSD-300 reviews

Two Monolight Softbox Kit (120 VAC) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Great lights that work either plugged into the camera via the PC connection or as slaves triggered remotely by your flash (if your camera lacks a PC plug). Some thoughtful details in the soft boxes make them easy to assemble and disassemble, but the speed ring opening could be enlarged to further increase ease of assembly. Attaching the speedrings and reflectors could be easier--the fit is perfect on one of my lights but a bit snug on the other, requiring a bit of muscle to attach anything to the light, and the lever that releases the speedring or reflector seems a bit flimsy. Light stands are sturdy, but some plastic parts suggest these might not last forever. The modeling light can be adjusted separately from the strobe, which is a nice feature to have. A great price for the amount of light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good kit for the money I use this product for portrait and fashion shoots. Good system for the money. It sets up well (see cons) for the most part. The system has plenty of power for my usage. I bought the carry bag and everything fits nicely in its place. A bit heavy, but all in one place. Nice kit! I am pleased!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kit for the beginner/hobbyist This is a great kit if you are just getting into studio lighting. The strobes are powerful enough for portraits and small groups up to five (5). I like the fact that you can adjust the power output. They are easy to set up and use, except for the softboxes that require a little bit of elbow grease to set up. The stands are adequate but are by no means heavy duty, considering the price. Would have been a better kit if the carrying bag was included. Due to overall weight, a wheeled bag is highly recommended. Used this kit at my daughter's school for their (6th grade) class pics and yearbook. I was more than pleased with the results as were the kids and parents. I received numerous compliments. As your skill improves, you may want to add another strobe or upgrade to a more complete kit. This kit has been reliable so far so I really can't complain. Great value and affordable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money This is a good kit for a hobbyist. I have taken photos of mostly little things, and a little bit of people. Enough power to lit 45 people. Air cushioned stands are also quite good for what you paid for. It will save you one day when you are not very careful when lowering the light as it will slow down the drop. Now the bad part. The softbox is usable but not very nice. The color temperture by the the flash itself is quite consistance but when you put the softbox, it will shift the color temperature by about 2000k!! You either need to use softbox for both lights or not at all. I have two small flashes that are used as slave, and it is a nightmare to balance the lights from different sources as the color temperature from different sources are simply different so much. I would not consider using these with other lights for serious work as there will be simply too much work to do before and after the shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Studio Lighting This kit is excellent for the money. Very strong lighting output in my studio. This kit comes with everything you need to start shooting. I use these lights in a portrait studio, they are very powerful and it's great that you can adjust the power as needed and it's simple to change. The kit was easy to set up except for the softboxes but you have got to just bend the poles and it will go together just fine. Overall excellent value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product for the price This product is easy to use and has great power. Perfect for a mid-size studio. Produces amazing photos. Very simple and straight forward. Love my new lights.
