How many kinds of photo assignments can you can handle with a compact outfit like the Impact Two Digital Monolight Kit with Case (120VAC)? You'd be surprised. It's got 2 VS-LCD 400w/s digital monolights--800w/s of power in an easily transportable package, two 10' light stands, two white translucent umbrellas, and a kit bag to hold everything.

Light output in the monolights can be varied in 1/10-stop stages over a 4-stop range, accessible through the digital readout. The 150W modeling light can be coupled to the flash, getting brighter or dimmer to match the actual light output, or independently set to the level you want. The monolight accepts S-type monolight reflectors and head accessories. It also has a limited Auto Dump function, firing the strobe when you reset to a different power level (so the strobe is automatically set to the correct setting for the next flash). A built-in optical slave allows the monolight to be triggered using another flash.

The two 43" Impact white umbrellas soften and broaden the light. The Impact aluminum light stands extend to 10' in 4 sections, with sure-twist section locks. If you forget to tighten a section with your light mounted, the light comes down slowly, thanks to the air-cushioning. And the light stands will accept casters, which makes positioning the lights a snap. The Impact Light Kit Bag is a soft, padded nylon case which easily accommodates the entire kit. It has overlapping carrying handles and an included shoulder strap.

Impact Umbrella - White Translucent (43")

Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a lightbox.

Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.

This Impact 43" White Translucent Umbrella is suggested for use in mid-length portraits for one or two persons.

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.

What is the fastest shutter speed I can use with this Monolight?
Asked by: Tommy
As the Impact One Monolight Kit (120VAC), B&H # IMVSLCD400K, is not a TTL flash with High-Speed Sync capabilities, the maximum shutter speed you may use will depend on the standard maximum flash sync speed used by your camera. With most focal-plane cameras, this will be 1/250 sec. If your camera/lens has an internal lens shutter, you may be able to use the flash at your lens' maximum shutter speed. Check with your camera's manufacturer for your camera model's standard maximum flash sync speed.

From page 8 of the instruction manual, available from Impact's website: To set the modeling light output only:Press the Mode button twice.The display will read 'M/Lamp Adjust' and a numerical value.Press the up/down arrow buttons to adjust the modeling light output.When done press the ENTER button. The modeling light will turn off when the flash is triggered.

Will these work with Pocket Wizard X slave units? I see it has sync port (so I feel it should work) but the list of accessories only lists Impact products. I want to get these for the college I teach at and we use the Pocket Wizards in the studio.

question

Would this kit work with a pocket wizard and speed light?Also are there battery packs for AC so that I can shoot on location?
Asked by: Henry F.
I have the mono light with softbox kit for work. It is a visual slave, so when my other personal speed light fires, it fires as well. It will not pick up directly to a pocket wizard or any other radio transmitter. It does have a sync cable, but it is flimsy and does not stay in the jack very well.
