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.

question

What are the dimensions of the bag, and how much does it weigh with everything in it?
Asked by: Emma P.
The bag is approximately 38 long (just over 3') and 8 square. I don't have a scale to weight it, but multiple people in my office (both male and female) could carry it with one hand/arm. It is not what I would describe as heavy, in terms of lighting equipment. I would guess 20 lbs, but I'm not confident in that number.

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.

question

Can the bulbs be illuminated individually? can you either switch off one or many bulbs or unscrew them so only 1 or two are on at a time?
Asked by: Anonymous
Although each socket cannot be switched on/off individually, you can remove as many bulbs as you wish and still operate the light. Personally, I switch between setups with two 64W CFL bulbs and two empty sockets, and setups with four 26W bulbs and both work perfectly (have been doing so for about a year). To make things even easier, the white section on the softboxes are removable, so switching out bulbs for a different color balance or different bulbs is easy. I hope that answers your question!

question

Are these lights silent? What about after a year? I've worked with low-end flo kits that buzzed and I don't want to waste my money on buzzy lights.
Asked by: Alesha A.
They don't have a buzz to them. They have a slight little noise but it's tolerable. They are not very bright though :/
