Impact VS-LCD400 overview

  • 1Description

How many kinds of photo assignments can you can handle with a compact outfit like the Impact Three Light Portrait Backlight Kit (120VAC)? You'd be surprised. It's got 2 VS-LCD 400w/s digital monopods, one Impact EX100A 100W/s monopod, two white umbrellas, two 10' light stands,  one 3' backlight stand, a radio slave transmitter and receiver, and a kit bag to hold everything.

Light output can be varied in 1/10-stop stages over a 4-stop range with the VS-LCD, accessible through the digital readout. The 100W 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 Bowens 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 EX100A monopod kit adds an additional 100w/s of light and included 24x24" softbox.

The 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 3' backlight stand can be used on a floor or table--particularly useful for a backlight. The radio slave transmitter and receiver let's you trigger the strobes without being connected to a sync cord. And you can pack it all into the included kit bag.

  • 2 x Impact Digital Monolight 400W/s (120VAC)

    You might be surprised at how many photo assignments you can handle with a compact, lightweight monolight like the Impact Digital Monolight 400W/s (120VAC). It's got 400w/s of power in an easily transportable package, and light output that 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. Perfect for portraits, small still-lifes, and much more.

  • Impact One Monolight Kit (120 VAC)

    The Impact One Monolight Kit (120 VAC) is an economical 100 watt/second monolight with modeling light and power variator. This kit includes a softbox with mounting ring, to soften the light output.

    The 24 x 24" included softbox has a silver interior for crisper highlights.
    Sync Cord with Monoplug to PC included
    Line sync voltage is only 4.3VDC -- safe for any camera's circuitry

  • 2 x Impact White Translucent Umbrella (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 PowerTrigger 16 Channel AC Transmitter and Receiver Set

    The PowerTrigger 16 Channel AC Transmitter and Receiver Set from Impact contains everything you'll need to wirelessly trigger your studio AC flash units at distances up to 75'. The set includes a 16 channel transmitter and receiver as well as a 2.5mm sub-mini to PC cable, a 3.5mm to 1/4" monoplug adapter and a pre-installed battery for the transmitter.

    The low-profile 1.2 x 1.6 x 2.8" PowerTrigger transmitter has a hot shoe for your camera, a test button, and 16 separate channels operating on the 433 MHz frequency to prevent interference from other devices. Channels are chosen on both the transmitter and receiver by configuring 4 DIP switches in 1 of 16 permutations on both the transmitter or receiver for wireless triggering from up to 75' away with flash sync speeds of up to 1/200 second. The transmitter runs on a pre-installed, 23A battery that can last up to 2 years with normal use.

    Unlike the transmitter, the PowerTrigger receiver doesn't use batteries and is instead powered by the same AC cord that's used for your monolight. Think of it as an in-line receiver. Simply plug the end of the power cord into the receiver then plug the receiver's power cord into the head's power outlet. Finally, plug the PowerTrigger's attached 3.5mm sync cable into the flash. A 1/4" mono plug adapter is provided if the head doesn't have 3.5mm input. If you don't know what your flash head's sync voltage is, or if you're using an older unit you might want to purchase a Wein Safe-Sync adapter (MFR# 990-510) to insure that the sync voltage remains under 6V. The Safe Sync's monoplug attachment can be easily adapted to 3.5mm if necessary.

    433 MHz Radio Signal
    Using a powerful radio signal allows you to trigger your studio flash without line of sight positioning
    Flash Sync Speed of up to 1/200 Sec.
    Take advantage of sync speeds up to 1/200 of a second with compatible cameras
    Wireless

    LED Indicator
    Confirms sending/receiving signals, and active AC power
    Multi-voltage
    100-230 VAC, 50/60 Hz
    Long-lasting Transmitter Battery

  • 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.

    The soft padded carry case is designed to hold three monolights with reflectors, four light stands, umbrellas, cables and other accessories
    The interior has six movable, touch fastened dividers that permit you to configure the bag to suit your needs; dividers consist of six large and two smaller styles
    2" (5.1 cm) wide overlapping dual carry handles that convert to a shoulder strap
