Impact Octacool-6 Overview

The Impact Octacool-6 Fluorescent 1-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 with removable Octabox. Each of the daylight-balanced 28W 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 two 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. A sturdy 9.5' (2.9) air-cushioned light stand rounds out the kit.

Note:
Fixture accepts 27 to 32W lamps. Set of lamps in kit may vary within this range depending on supply.

question

I'm looking to do a newborn shoot and I, don't want to use my studio lights has any one used this set up for newborn photography?
Asked by: FREDERICK
I bought the setup exactly for newborn photography. I will not us strobes with a newborn. Set up the shot ahead of time using a teddy bear for test lighting. I use a beanbag covered with fuzzy material to hold the baby with mommy close by. Also use reflectors for fill and back light from the Octabox lights or from natural light. You can use a light background cloth on supports

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.

question

Will 2 of these lights be enough for portraits of 2-3 people at a time? Thanks!
Asked by: C. Thomas
Yes, assuming the people are close to one another. The amount of light will not be an issue with portraits, these are bright lights, but the color temperature is very high - you may want to consider a warming filter or backing these lights away from your subjects to bring some warmth back in
