question

I'm relatively new to video and lighting, but I bought this kit about five months ago when it was up for a one day sale here on B&H. My question is, would I be able to connect a dimmer of some sort to this light and adjust the light output? I know you can do that for some lights, just not sure if that's something you can do with florescent lights and this fixture in particular. Thanks in advance.
Asked by: Sean
My unit came with Eiko SP27/50K CFLs. On the side of the CFL box under WARNING first item Not for use with dimmers ... . If you change/replace the CFLs with CFLs that are made for dimmers, that may work. I do not know if the color temperature changes with dimming. 73

question

Could this be used to shoot a video interview in a small room with a DSLR? I want to make sure I have enough lighting for 24fps at 1/50th...? It doesn't have to have a lot of emotion or anything, just has to be well lit to look like quality recording.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes this will work very well. If the room is small, you may have too much light with all the bulbs installed. The light can be easily adjusted by distance to the subject and number of bulbs in each fixture. I have been very pleased with this unit. Lots of good light, at around 5200K as I recall. Very well constructed and should give years of good service.

question

What are the dimensions of the bag, and how much does it weigh with everything in it?
Asked by: Emma P.
Hello EmmaI don't have the exact measurements in terms of any measuring scale but it's reasonably a bit big and not too heavy too. (Depends on how you want to carry/transport it)

question

I am new to lighting set up, can I switch the bulb holders to hold flashes/sped light?
Asked by: Sachin G.
If your question relates to re-dedicating the stand to hole another fixture , then the answer is yes. I don't have the gear handy to measure, but tripods/stands have various stud diameters and I'd look at the Impact product specification to get the size. From there, you can see if your fixture will mate onto that stud.If you look closely at the thumb nut on the bottom of the fixture, this is the means of tightening it onto the stud.

question

Do the lights get hot? or are they cool bulbs?
Asked by: Marcella C.
The bulbs are not extremely hot, but, like all light bulbs, they do put off heat. Hope this helps answer your question.
