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.

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

I am reading in the reviews that these light are not good for "key lighting." I intend to light a green screen. What is "key lighting.?
Asked by: Peter
I have the jist of you answer. I don't understand this sentence. "If the light is appropriate to the shoot is a different issue based on camera settings and size of the area."

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
I've purchased two of these kits now. The lights are nowhere near as bright as my tungsten lights, but they get the job done. To answer your question, I believe you would have ample light for your interview. However, you may have to bring the lights fairly close to the subject's face. Keep in mind these lights won't work too well lighting your background. I usually film at 30fps at 1/60th. Lastly, don't forget to allow the lights a couple of minutes to reach full brightness before setting up your shot.

What are the dimensions of the bag, and how much does it weigh with everything in it?
Asked by: Emma P.
Hi Emma,The bag (fully loaded) weighs just under 20 lbs. This is without the bulbs. They easily fit in the bag with the rest of the lighting kit. But I pack them seperatly in a hard case for protection. That adds another 2-3 lbs to the total package. The outside dims (again when loaded) is about 8x9x36 inches. Hope this helps,Rick

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.

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.
