Impact Octacool-6 Overview

The Impact Octacool-6 Fluorescent Light Kit with Octabox (6 Lamps) is a great choice for the photographer or videographer seeking a broad, flattering light source with unique fall-off characteristics for portraiture, fashion, or events.

Octagonal-shaped light sources have long had a reputation as the preferred portrait-shooter's light source. The shape offers an especially large surface area which produces wrap-around light, which envelopes the subject while creating natural-looking catchlights in the eyes.

The kit is comprised of a separate 6-lamp Octacool light head and removable Octabox. Each of the daylight-balanced 32W lamps outputs 1400 lumens of light for a total of 8400 lumens measured at 3.3 feet. Three switches on the rear of the fixture control 2 lamps each allowing you to vary the output in 2800 lumen increments. The head's standard 5/8" receiver mounts to a huge variety of light stands and gripware with 5/8" studs.

The included Octabox has a removable inner baffle and front face allowing even greater flexibility from hard to ultra-soft light. The light head also comes with a removable aluminum reflector for a bright, contrasty lighting option.

Includes a 29.5˝ Octabox that provides a soft, uniform, diffused light
Noiseless operation allows clear audio for video productions
Cool output allows heat-sensitive subjects to be safely photographed up close
32W screw-in fluorescent lamps with a life expectancy of 6000-8000 hours

These Are Awesome.

I never really had any problems with these lights ever, i use Ecosmart LED bulbs, NOT the fluorescent light bulbs that comes with it, because they cast a green color, so i don't like them plus the fluorescent light bulbs get hot, the Ecosmart LED bulbs, do not.. The other thing i noticed is when i bought them in 2021, they was only $320.00 in price now they are $409.00 which is a much higher price, the went up in price big time, i'm suprised.. Other then that they are great lights especially for Video work..

Great value for money

I just received this light and it's no joke, its very bright and the diffusion thing that it comes with makes the light very soft. You will not regret buying this light! It is an investment

It Does What it Claims

I bought this for my art studio....I needed natural light and did not want to hire electrician and to through the hassle.  It gives natural light and I love the fact that I can adjust the amount of light I need!  My complaint is regarding the instructions.  They could have been clearer and more precise.  Could not figure out how to attach it to the tripod...does not specify that the bolt has to be unscrewed and then attached.   A little hard to fit the pliable wires to the outside fabric....I am not sure that it is 100% secure, but since I have no intention of disassembling often, it works.

This is the third one that I bought!

Finally we got a good way to go back to continuos light, but with cold temperature light and low cost. It's a very good profesional product.

Monster light!!!

This set-up is amazing and super bright. The fixture is very heavy duty as is the stand. The hard reflector is perfect size, but when you build and attach the Octa-box.......whoa! The whole thing becomes enormous!!!

The Impact Octacool 6 Fluorescent Light is excelent product, strong and professional. It's like we use to work 50 years ago with Continuos Light but without hot temperature. The Light Quality is perfect (5,000/5,500 K). I just bought one more. Thanks B&H for dealing that!

Excellent lighting equipment!

This light works very well. It does get hot and smells like the cover which softens the light or something on the inside may be getting burned... But it's good by me compared to other similar lights.

question

Could these fluorescent bulbs be replaced with 100 watt daylight LED bulbs? I would think that the LED bulbs would not get as hot.....
Asked by: Anonymous
I think replacing the bulbs would reduce the heat. However, they are expensive and you would need to deal with the color balance of the new bulbs.
