Impact OctaCool 9 Notes / by Jared

I got the Impact OctaCool 9 from Amazon a little while ago.  It's a good CFL unit that's lightweight, puts out decent light, and has two diffusers for nice soft light.  The drawbacks are the clips holding the inner diffuser are a pain to use, the reflector material is single stitched (might not hold too long), and the whole umbrella setup is tough to assemble.  I just leave it assembled to get around that.  Here's a video I put together for it.
