The Octa Soft and Natural Creator Kit was put together by B&H to enhance a mini-studio of lighting equipment with the creative potential available with chroma key technology. The kit includes two 4-socket fluorescent fixtures, eight daylight-balanced spiral fluorescent lamps, two 24" Octa softboxes with 8' air-cushioned light stands, and a Savage Photo Creator Kit with a 5 x 7' green screen, chroma key software, and 720 digital backgrounds.
The Octa 4-Socket Fluorescent Fixture from Impact is a four Edison socket base that accepts CFL fluorescent bulbs up to 85W. The back panel features dual rocker switches, each of which control the on/off function for two lights allowing the creation of a light ratio. The fixture has a multi-voltage power supply for worldwide use (with addition of optional adapter plug) and has a standard 5/8" receiver for light stands and accessories. The matching Octa Softbox features a highly reflective, pebbled interior and a removable front face that attaches with simple touch-fasteners. In use, it renders the signature wrap-around look that it's well known for, as well as natural circular catch-lights in your subject's eyes. The softboxes are supported by Impact 8' stands that gently lower the lights during height adjustments thanks to their air-cushioning.
Using green screen technology, and the included software, the Savage Photo Creator Kit permits you to take a simple photograph against the included green screen cloth and simply drop in a distant locale or landmark that places your subject far from where you took the photo without ever boarding a plane.
The FF-0F4 Octa 4-Socket Fluorescent Fixture from Impact is a four Edison socket base that accepts CFL fluorescents up to 85W. Individual socket rating is 105 watts. The back panel has dual rocker switches, each of which control on/off function for two lights allowing the creation of a light ratio. The FF-0F4 has a multi-voltage power supply for worldwide use (with addition of optional adapter plug) and has a standard 5/8" receiver for light stands and accessories. The FF-0F4 is meant for use with the Impact FF-OSB60 24" Octa Softbox which is purchased separately, or with a standard photo umbrella that fits through the fixture's umbrella receptacle.
The 24" FF-OSB60 Octa Softbox from Impact is an 8-sided light modifier supported by 8 flexrods which are attached to the separately purchased FF-OF4 4-socket fixture.
The Octa features a highly reflective pebbled interior and a removable front face that attaches with simple touch-fasteners. In use, it renders the signature wrap-around look that it's well known for, as well as natural circular catch-lights in your subjects eyes. This 24" Octa is made to be used with the FF-OF4 fixture and fluorescent lamps only.
This aluminum Impact Air-Cushioned Light Stand rises to a height of 8' and folds down to 29.6". The stand has sure-twist section locks and 4 sections and will support up to 8 lb.
If you forget to tighten any section with your light mounted, the light slowly descends, thanks to the air-cushioned action. This useful feature saves equipment and fingers from harm during busy photo sessions.
The Eiko SP27/50K Spiral Fluorescent lamp (26/120V) is an Edison base (E26) screw-in bulb, for the SP Systems Cool Light, Interfit, Impact, Bowens Tri-Lite, or any other floodlight fixture that can accept a large bulb. The lamp has a color temperature of 5000° and an average life of 10,000 hours. This lamp is not for use with dimmers, electronic timers, photocells, totally enclosed fixtures, motion/occupancy sensors, or where directly exposed to water.
