question

Excuse my ignorance, but are these static lights, or a flash? Im looking for more lighting to use with my photo booth. Im already using a ELINCHROM D-LITE 400W/S RX 4. Still not getting enough light for the photo preview which is done in video mode when the flash is not firing. Will these work for me?
Asked by: Joey
The LED lamps in this kit are continuous and are equal to 250 watts of tungsten light, whereas the modeling lamp in your Elinchrom monolights are only 100 watts each.

question

I do photos of porcelain which is shinny..so will this floodlight work for this type of photography?
Asked by: Anonymous
Any source will work well if you modify it to your liking. If I were lighting your porcelain chances are I would want a combination of hard with soft light. Maybe throw some diffusion over the front of that reflector for your key light. A bed sheet or muslin will probable do fine. Leave the back light open faced and step walk it further or closer depending on the desired brightness levels of your backlight. A 100 watt incandescent bulb aluminum foil and a pillow case could light a small object well if done properly. I would say that this product will suit your needs well. Invest in a lighting book when you have the time. Blaine Brown is a good place to start. Focal Press is the publisher.

question

Can a soft box attach to this?
Asked by: Anonymous
To use the Impact Porcelain socket with a standard soft box, you'll need:* softbox of choice (must support hot lights of 500w or higher)* a speed ring that is compatible for the soft box above, designed for the Lowel Tota-LightAlthough the type of speed ring mentioned above is designated for the Lowel Tota-Light, the 5/8 male baby pin that is on the ring is a standard mount (as per a light stand). Therefore, the ring will accept any small light fixture that can be mounted horizontally (like the Tota-Light.) Any light bank manufacturer's ring (Impact, Chimera, Photoflex, etc.) for the Lowel Tota-Light will have the standard 5/8 male baby pin on it.I own a Chimera 24 X 32 Video Pro Plus softbox, the respective Chimera speed ring, a Lowel-Tota-Light, and a few Impact sockets.I mounted my Impact Porcelain socket onto the speed ring to try it out, and it mounted just fine! Since it is a bare bulb, the resulting light fills the box very nicely. Open-face fixtures are the best source for any soft box light bank -- bare-bulb fixtures are even better! If you're need the most cost-effective soft box solution, try this:* Impact Luxbanx Duo light bank that supports hot lights of at least 500 watts; I recommend any extra small (XS), small (S), or medium (M) size soft box, strip box, or octo box.* Impact speed ring for the Lowel Tota-Light* Impact porcelain socket with a 500 watt photoflood bulb* optional: Impact Luxbanx soft box grid (choose the appropriate size for your soft box, and degree coverage that best suits your needs)* optional: instead of tungsten lighting, you could get any of the reasonably sized Impact Fluorescent bulb sockets; I use the single socket with a 4-way adapter -- and 4 105w CFL bulbs. If you want the best CRI, use the 26w Kino Flo True Match KF32 bulbs for 3200K tungsten or KF55 bulbs for 5500K daylight.* optional: Impact 1000 watt dimmer for tungsten incandescent lights. You can't use these with fluorescent lights.

question

What radio triggers should I get to use these flashes with a Canon 70D (since I don't want to just use them as optical slaves)?
Asked by: Anonymous
A radio trigger such as the Vello FreeWave LR Wireless Flash Trigger and Receiver Kit B&H # VERFWLR can connect to the 3.5mm sync port one of the SF-AE80 slave units. However, the additional units would still need to be triggered optically as you would only have one receiver. Please see the image for reference.

question

Is it possible to peg gels on the rim of these lights?
Asked by: Anonymous
While you could use wooden clothes pins to attach gels to the outer lip of the reflector, it is not recommend as this would be unsafe. A safer solution would be to use a filter holder in front of the light. Please see the link for reference: <a href= http://bhpho.to/1hMMuds target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/1hMMuds</a>
