Impact SF-AE80 overview

  • 1Description

The Impact SF-AE80 AC Flash is a handy light source that screws into any household fixture, E26 socket or photo fixture with an E26 (Edison) base. A jack-of-all-trades, the 5,600K SF-AE80 can be used in lamps or home fixtures when lighting interiors with flash, especially during the daytime. Make your own super-lightweight portable flash kit with an optional Impact Porcelain Socket with Umbrella Mount (IMSPUM). Use it as a background light, hair light or accent light. The SF-AE80 can be used in either the master or slave mode thanks to its optical sensor and sync outlet. Trigger it from the camera via the included 11' 3.5mm mini jack sync cord or trigger several of them as slaves responding to the camera's master flash.

    Impact SF-AE80 reviews

    SF-AE80 AC Flash (110-130VAC) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from sync cords not fit when in a socket Purchased as a lighting kit (with two sockets, tripods and umbrellas.) The slaves fire really well--I have no problem with it firing when using my speedlight on my camera to trigger the slaves. However, the sync cords that came with it plug into the slave just fine (the attach point is at the back of the slave unit), but when attached to the socket, there is not enough clearance to seat the slave properly into the socket. I had not originally planned to use the sync cords anyway, but if you are planning to use them, be aware that it does not fit. I knocked a star off the rating because of this, otherwise the slaves do really well within the 5-10-foot recommended distances.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for a fill-in I used them as fill-in flashes to support a main powerful unit. This is where these screw-in fast recycling bulbs show their value. You can achieve real-pro results using the SF-AE80 Flashes as fill-ins as they will soften every shadow caused by your main flash. Inexpensive, you can buy 2-3 in addition to a powerful one like a 300w/s that cost around $ bucks at B&H. One main flash + 3 screw-ins like these will make your friends wonder how you did achieve such a pro result.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As Advertised Work really well as a slave flash. Nice additional lighting option when AC power is available and I need more light beyond my speedlites. Make sure you discharge the flash after you turn off the power by pushing the test button. Flash holds a charge when the power is off.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Than Expected I needed a fill-in flash for a light box. Didn't want to spend a lot for this one application and gave this a try. Very basic and simple. Works as described. Not very strong and doesn't do much as a fill-in for other applications. Well worth the price for a low power fill-in flash.
    Date published: 2015-05-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great when used as a slave. I use it as the slave, but because I cannot insert a synch cord once I've screwed the light into the socket, I can only use these bulbs as slaves. I can adjust the output by using a set of old barn door I had. Very fast recycle time.
    Date published: 2016-03-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for what it is I ride a motorcycle and because of that, space is an issue. Using a light tripod as a lightstand, a clip light and this I was able to bring a portable studio in my saddle bag.
    Date published: 2015-04-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bang for your buck Great bang for your buck! My only issue is the placement of the test trigger, its right on the back near the threads so its a tight fit when i screw it in to my power source.
    Date published: 2013-02-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple Cheap, one big flaw. The port on the back is blocked by all but the most low-profile screw bases. Other than that, it's a cheap, reliable, and versatile flash
