Impact Octacool-6 overview

  • 1Description

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

    Impact Octacool-6 reviews

    Octacool-6 Fluorescent Light Kit with Octabox (6 Lamps) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 57.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good for its price I use the product for product photography and for the most part it does its job pretty well. Lighting is consistent and the output is enough for what i do. I just switched from a tungsten light set up to this and this is way better because it produces no sound so i can use it for video if i need to and it barely produces any heat. I expected the octabox to be a bit bigger. If you use this for in studio full body shot you won't have enough light. Use these for half body portrait instead One more thing I really dislike about the product is the lack of a handle on the back of the unit. Rotating the head is not hard it's just annoying to do without a handle

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Octacool-6 Solved Problems For Us In our video studio, we have been using incandescent softboxes and ceiling-mounted fluorescent video lights which are color corrected and have silent ballasts for video. Along comes our first Octacool and we love it. The daylight look is a nice change from the reddish light we were getting, meaning less color correction is needed. The 28 watt bulbs run cool and don't need a fan which is a solution to the softbox fans being heard in the audio. We're expecting long bulb life and they will be a cinch and inexpensive to replace. I used to not prefer fluorescent lighting, but I'm won over by the Octacool. This fixture fits any standard 5/8 light stand. Please note a stand is not included with the Octacool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality/functionality and pricing! I've wanted one of these for a while, finally got one and was not disappointed. Nice, bright, even light dispersion, it's seriously made a positive difference with my indoor shooting. I use this lighting kit for my main light source and use my smaller Hot Shoe/flash soft box kit to highlight where needed. The Octacool 6 Fluorescent Lighting Kit sufficiently give's me the main light source needed for the smaller area's I shoot in. The only thing that I will point out as a possible con would be the plastic stand mount bracket and the six soft box steel rod's are a pain to install, not the most convenient assembly but all in all, great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome light, sturdy and very cool! I bought two of these and my studio is absolutely set for indoor shooting. The lights stay very cool and they're pretty big so you get a very nice even light from it. Each light also comes with a dish that you can screw on in lieu of the soft box that gives a bit brighter output that's good for a rimlight or backlight that you don't get with just the soft box. Three switches in the back allow for control of the lights in increments of 2 (up to 6). Not very portable however. You'd have to break them down and remove the lightbulbs if you wanted to take these somewhere else. The stands are really high quality and sturdy as heck!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, but arrived with broken piece I received this with a chipped/broken light socket. It hasn't had any affect on the performance of the product & hopefully never will, but I was disappointed to have a product arrive broken, even though it was well-packaged. I believe it had pressed up against the octabox because there was even a small indentation in it. But overall I love this product. It gives me great lighting & is easy to adjust. It's a tad heavy, so I have to make sure my stand legs are properly adjusted as not to topple over, but I believe that would be fairly common sense. I would have given this five stars if not for the broken piece upon arrival.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy! Excellent product! Excellent for portraits and small groups!. Easy to set up light is very soft and the colors are excellent.The octcacool are cool & cool looking. The octabox is very well made. Good buy for the money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for studio, not great on location There was a defective bulb on arrival, but new one was sent immediately free of charge. Light box works well and gives off great amount of lighting. Adjustable light intensity works wonderful. However, setup and take-down time does require patience. Air cussioned stands don't offer much protection in colder environments and feel a little cheap. I would recommend for a good studio setup, but you might want to pay the higher price for more portable setup when doing on location work. For the price, you can't beat this setup.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent light, misleading description The Octacool-6 kicks out a lot of light. I find i dont need to have all of them on. For the price it is well made except the stitching on the Octabox. I can see a few seams have popped already. As far as the cool to the touch light statement made in the demo, - that couldn't be farther from the truth. These lights burn hot. I think what they mean is they don't emit as much heat as other lights. In any case, don't touch them.
