Impact SF-AE80 overview

  • 1Description

The Impact SF-AE80 AC Master/Slave 2 Flash Kit includes 2 SF-AE80 AC Slaves that screw into the provided umbrella sockets or any household fixture. Two umbrellas have been provided as well as two 6.0' light stands to support them. Since each flash can be used as either a master or slave, a sync cord is included with each flash in the kit to trigger your master flash from the camera which will in turn trip the other SF-AE80s. This lightweight, flexible lighting setup is appropriate for just about any type of photography.

  • 2 x Impact Porcelain Socket with Adjustable Umbrella Mount (500W)

The Floodlight Socket tilts and locks in place at the desired angle by grasping the stay-cool wooden handle and releasing the locking knob. Lamps up to 500W won't melt the ceramic base which is impervious to heat. The socket also accepts screw-on reflectors of various sizes.

  • 2 x Impact 32" Convertible Umbrella

    This is an Impact 32" white satin umbrella with removable black backing. Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a softbox.

    Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.

    This size is perfect for a 1 - 2 person head shot, or a 2x3 ft product setup.

    Backing may be removed half way, providing a unique combination of light bounced from different surfaces.

Impact SF-AE80 reviews

SF-AE80 AC Master/Slave 2 Flash Kit (110-130VAC) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, yet great value! I wanted to add a couple of extra flashes to my bag of tricks, and this kit fit the bill at a great price point. The SF AE80 is a simple flash unit that screws into a regular light socket. The cool thing about this is that you can either use it with the socket that comes in the kit, or you can screw it into a light fixture and use it as a hidden slave flash when shooting interiors. The flash unit is extremely simple. You can plug a sync cord to it and trigger it directly, and when no sync cord is connected it's triggered by the built in slave whenever it senses another flash go off. There is no modelling light and no adjustment for flash intensity. The practical working distance is 5-10 ft from the subject. The stands and umbrellas seems to be of decent build quality, and it even comes with two sync cords. The adjustable socket and umbrella holder can also be used with any light bulb, so if you add a couple of 500w photo floods you have a simple continuous light setup for still or video work for just a few dollars more. Now this is obviously a very inexpensive and simple system, so if you plan on using them frequently as your primary flash system you might want something more powerful with more features. However, it makes for a nice, uncomplicated kit for lighting emergencies and for pulling of a quick head shot or a small to medium size product shot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Generic They get the job done but they aren't the best lights. They are cheap so in turn you can expect cheap lighting. The sockets feel loose and the bulbs really aren't that bright. The packaging is nice and the tripod and umbrellas are sturdy. They don't really do a great job at brightening anything up thought which is what they are meant for. Not impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product These are my first flashes and I couldn't be happier, great quality and value as always !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well with one problem I used this kit to light a photobooth I set up at a wedding. One flash is connected via the included cable to the camera while the other flash used optical sync. The umbrellas, stands, flashes, and sockets worked fine with no problem, and I recommend the kit. Everything is reasonably sturdy and functional. BUT... There is one issue you should be aware of. You'll see reference to the sync plug being too close to the socket on other reviews and I wanted to point out that YES, it is true. And YES it applies specifically to the sockets you're getting in this kit. The connection for the cable is on the back of the flash, on the same side as where it screws into the socket. It is positioned _too close_ to the screw jack. This would be a deal breaker if you were trying to use any socket except those included in the kit because you will have to partially disassemble the socket to give enough clearance to use the cable included. You could probably work around this with a right-angle minijack adapter or something. I just unscrewed and removed the metal collar around the socket. Does this seem okay to me? Sure I guess. The socket seems sturdy enough without this metal collar. Removing the collar probably does compromise the strength to some degree. The collar is metal, and you're not removing something that will prevent you from getting shocked, as far as I can tell. If Radio Shack hadn't gone out of business, I'd just have picked up a 1/8 right angle extension cable. I still recommend this kit because if you're not using the sync cables: zero issues. Set up as optical slaves, this kit works great and the price is right. If B&H provided little 6 right angle extension cables that cleared the socket collar, this kit would be perfect.
