    Impact FF-SA4 reviews

    4 Socket Fluorescent Adapter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I use these with an umbrella stand and four 105w fluorescents. I was concerned that it would impede the insertion of the umbrella stem or that 4 large lamps wouldn't fit. Not a problem. It is a great, inexpensive way to expand your lighting options. With 4 105w fluorescent lamps, you can easily carry 2000w(equivalent) light with you. I bought these to expand the lighting options of easily transportable gear rather than lugging soft boxes, heavier light stands, etc. I'm very happy with them. I have a few in my studio that will get regular use even when I'm not travelling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Am I glad I found this! I use this adapter to replace a single large, bulky and expensive 85 watt fluorescent bulb with four-26 watt readily available and much less expensive 5300K bulbs. The adapter itself is very inexpensive, and it allows me to use my existing reflectors without modification. The adapter and bulbs fit nicely within the reflector that I've been using (the 85 watt bulb stuck out of the end)and with four bulbs installed, the light output is increased as well. The build quality of the adapter looks good, and I just love the way that it works. No nits to pick on this one---HIGHLY recommended!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big improvement over older style 4 Way socket! I use this 4 way to adapt a single socket Westcott base for use with 4 X 40Watt CF Bulbs. The single Edison male base on old style adapter from Impact would become loose after a few uses, so I had to use a little Loctite to secure the base socket, this adapter is much more robust and I don't anticipate any trouble with the base remaining secure.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely Bright I bought 2 of these to help brighten up my @ pictures on the cheap. It definitely did that, but they're awfully heavy. One's on a shop light with a flexible extender, and it can hardly hold the weight of all the bulbs on it. I'm also going to end up using some aluminum foil or something to direct the light. Having this in the socket on the fixture makes the bulbs stick out so far that the light goes everywhere. And the last thing is that this adapter has to be used on a fixture that fits its diameter. They doesn't list it on the listing, and of course I don't have it with me to post it here, but I tried to use one on a regular desk lamp, and it won't fit.Aside from all this, it does exactly what I want, and I would buy it again in a heartbeat. It's a heck of a lot cheaper than buying a whole lighting setup.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid expansion adapter this adapter is a Great option to have. the only complaint I have with it is that it doesn't have the holes for the impact diffuser hood. this is an issue with larger bulbs as the added depth of this adapter won't allow you to cover the diffuser hood without the diffuser touching the bulbs. I drilled my own holes to solve the problem but this was a major oversight by the design team

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I purchased this for close up photography. I got one thinking it would be enough with four 100w equivalent CFL bulbs, but I still get a little bit of shadow. I recommend purchasing at least two of these unless you have a reflective surface around your subject. I screw this adapter into a cheap hardware store clamp light and it works great. I purchase some CFL (Daylight 5000K) bulbs for a Great Value (hint hint) from a local store and they're working well in this adapter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Practical and inexpensive Got it for video, but great for product pics. A very easy to use setup. Need less light-use 3 or 2 lights. Need 4k light to blend with indoor background-use regular cfls and set camera to flourescent. Need daylight-use5k cfls-easy to find. Stuck on a tight budget-use umbrella. May get holder/lightbox later as it keeps light where you only want it and is easy to manage. Wish impact light boxes were more universal fitting, that way you don't have to haul a bunch of different fitting boxes..
