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

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.
