Impact Octacool-9 overview

  • 1Description

The Impact Octacool-9 Fluorescent 1-Light Kit with Octabox (9 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 9-lamp Octacool light head and removable Octabox, and a light stand. Each of the provided daylight-balanced 27-32W (depending on supply) lamps outputs 1400 lumens of light for a total of 12,600 lumens measured at 3.3 feet. Five switches on the rear of the fixture allow individual control of lamps allowing 1-9 of them to be switched on or off, varying output in 1400 lumen increments. The head's standard 5/8" receiver mounts to a huge variety of light stands and gripware with 5/8" studs. A sturdy 9.5' air-cushioned light stand rounds out the kit.

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.

Note: The Octacool is not recommended for hot lights.

Impact Octacool-9 reviews

Octacool-9 Fluorescent 1-Light Kit with Octabox (9 Lamps) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Surprise Great value, well built, easy to assemble. The double diffusser's are so effective, that you can not even make out the bulbs from the lighted edges, it's that well diffused. Well engineered use of plastic, not cheap, but efficent. Stand and support are strong enough to get the job done. Shadow box is designed very well, sides are taught, diffuser is taught and smooth. I also puchsed a Fora 6x85watt light from Linco which should be twice as bright, it's NOT, it's only equal to this light in output, but this light is better constructed and more versitile. I only wish Impact woulkd make a larger one; 48 octagon softbox with 9 85 watt bulbs. Yeah ! you can never have enough flourescent light!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter For an octobox set up you really do get quality for your buck and the capability to customize your constant light at the flick of a switch is a feature that most other competitors at this price range simply don't have. The light is incredible. The only reason it has 4 stars is that it's more than just a hassle to assemble and disassemble; the wire rods that push into the softbox are held onto it with a single stitch and one already loosened so I ran the softbox to my nearest alterations, had them restitch all of them and now I just keep the whole kit assembled in my studio instead of disassembling. Zero issues since!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Octacool 9 - how strong is this light I have had the Octacool 9 for about 10 months now. I have used it a few times a month to give you an idea of wear and tear. I am new to lighting for video and this light out of the box was not very difficult to put together. It took some struggle with the softbox wires but it worked out good. I wanted to wait for a longer period of time to give it a durability review and i have to say it could be a stronger light. Made out of plastic and some cheaper materials it COULD be more durable but that would make it more expensive. I do have to say that i am buying a second one hoping I dont regret it. This light works for my needs and is holding up for someone that takes care of their gear. I have had 1 bulb burn out in a year and that is due to putting a diffusion sock on the reflector and that holds the heat it. So dont do that for very long. Overall, I am partial to recommending to a friend. I would say buy a better light if you can afford but if not this will work. Not far from what i expected in this light. 4 out of 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price Great for indoor portraits. I used only this light to create a high contrast look, and this light was a solid investment for the cost. This light is not ideal if you are planning to travel, set up and tear down is time consuming and storage is difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lighting for office studio Bought this for my small office studio as a key-light. Lighting works great and diffuses well. Stand is very sturdy and perfect for the box. Two bulbs came broken but B&H shipped me out 2 new ones right away no questions asked. Awesome service!
