Impact OC-9-2KII overview

  • 1Description

The Impact Octacool-9 Fluorescent 2-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 that legendary wrap-around light, which envelopes the subject while creating natural-looking catchlights in the eyes.

The kit is comprised of two separate 9-lamp Octacool light heads and removable Octaboxes, and two light stands. 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.

The included Octaboxes have removable inner baffles and front faces allowing even greater flexibility from hard to ultra-soft light. Each light head also comes with a removable aluminum reflector for a bright, contrasty lighting option. Two sturdy 9.5' air-cushioned light stands round out the kit.

Impact OC-9-2KII reviews

Octacool-9 Fluorescent 2-Light Kit with Octabox (9 Lamps) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these lights I bought these to replace a strobe kit. I have no patience for recycling times and misfiring triggers. I also feel like flashes can be distracting for the subjects. I like the light that comes from these. It's bright but not harsh. I recently took some photos using just one of these and a reflector. The octoboxes are a pain to put together, like other boxes that use rods to attach to a ring. One of the elastic loops used to attach the inner baffle/diffuser came off the first time I put it together. The stands seem sturdy. It would be nice if these had come packaged with a case. I ended up purchasing the cases that show up in the recommended accessories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful light quality Love these lights, the quality and amount of light they give are perfect. My only criticism is the portability and the time it takes to put them together and break down. But neither of those things would stop me from buying another set!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy with this purchase I do mostly in-studio portraiture and my pair of Pro-Master LED soft boxes just weren't giving enough light, especially for full length body shots. These completely solved my problem. There is a very small hint of green in their otherwise excellent color spectrum (this is my reason for 4 stars). New, better CFLs are on my list as an upgrade. These went together fairly easily but there's a knack. I could do it in half the time now. I wouldn't want to be taking these apart and putting them back together again every time I used them so be warned about this. Hardware is of high quality and robust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice lights for the price! I co-produce many different video projects for our youtube network (www.youtube.com/k2d4network) and needed some decently priced video lights for both studio and mobile application. I found these lights just right for what we need them for. The light boxes are a little cumbersome to assemble and tear down so I have just been leaving them assembled. The stands are pretty decent, they are quite heavy duty and with the legs fully extended I do not worry about the large soft boxes tipping over, though you might want to air on the side of caution when using any soft boxes outdoors (in the wind). The one problem I did notice is you have to screw the light bulbs in VERY tightly to make a good connection. At first I thought my unit had some issues, but later found that if I really tightened the bulbs it worked. Color temperature seemed to average around 5300K, and light output is pretty darn good on these! They do put off a little bit of heat, but that's expected. If you are looking for a good set of lights for mostly studio work then these are not bad, if you are looking for lights that transport easily then these are not what you are looking for. Overall I am quite happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too lovely to pass up I am buying a second set of these lights, which should tell you how much I appreciate them. First the bad news. These are not easily portable. B&H offers a large wheeled case as a suggested accessory; with both baffle and diffuser on, the lights don't fit. There is no battery option for running these lights. The baffle and diffuser are enormous PITAs to put on, easily adding 20 minutes to setup unless you simply leave the diffusion on. The good news: you won't find lovelier light at this price. It is wonderfully soft and even. I'm getting a second set to use on talent, because the first set has become my permanent green screen lights. The beam is so soft and even, i reliably get one-click keying in post. Two lights easily cover a green screen twenty feet wide and eight feet tall. Terrific quality of light; terrific amount of light; absolutely silent running; no heat. A great investment for any studio. With some effort, workable as portable lights, if you can run power to them. I've used my first pair for two years now and haven't had to replace even one bulb. Get these with a C-stand and a Matthews triple-header for a super-easy way to light a large area.
