Huge daylight light source.
The new 1200-watt Spiderlite TD6 paired with the 7' Silver Parabolic Umbrella is an amazing combination providing a huge daylight light source. Packed with punch, the silver interior umbrella is an ideal pair with the soft natural output of the daylight fluorescent lamps. The added BONUS diffusion front for the Parabolic Umbrella offers even softer results and can also be ideally paired with Strobes or Speedlites. Spiderlite TD6 with 50-watt lamps provides 1200 equivalent watts of true daylight power. Three switches on the back of the light head allow lamps to be run in pairs of 2, 4 or 6 allowing you to adjust power. All-metal construction, 180-degree rotation and built in adapter ring ensure years of quality. The 7' Parabolic is designed to incorporate a solid metal shaft with steel insert for added strength and durability. The shaft is tapered to 7mm to fit European style lights. Custom-built 50-watt fluorescent lamps are full spectrum, true daylight color and rated for use up to 8,000 hours.
The Spiderlite TD6.
Three separate controls allow the ability to adjust light output, without changing color temperature. With an adjustable rheostat, every time adjustments are made, color temperature can shift greatly. By utilizing these switches, your color stays constant which means you are only white balancing your camera once! (Each switch controls 2 lamps)
All metal construction
The Spiderlite TD6 is constructed of all-metal, no plastic to break.
The surface was intentionally designed to be highly reflective maxizing light output. Any light that is projected back towards the light base is bounced off the silver surface and projected forward for maximum efficiency.
Built in adapter ring
No need for additional brackets as this unit incorporates a built in adapter ring. Simply insert the soft box rods into the four openings. For easier set up, one softbox rod insertion point is cut out at the top. This allows the last soft box rod to simply slide into place.
Powerful and Praised:
Popular on the sets of major television shows, films, and amongst professional photographers, Westcott's Spiderlite TD has become the first choice for powerful, daylight or tungsten lighting. Named a 2012 Hot One by Professional Photographer magazine, the newest Spiderlite TD6 steadily produces 1200 watts of illumination. With sockets placed evenly across the compact light head, Spiderlites emit light evenly for maximized output.
The Spiderlite Series was designed with the ability to take both fluorescent and tungsten-halogen bulbs. Photographers can choose instantly between using warm or cool light temperatures without needing to exchange light heads. Regardless of the bulbs in use, the Spiderlite TD's output can be adjusted with separate controls located on the rear of the light head. Each switch controls the level of brightness while maintaining color temperature. The light head is constructed with reflective metal, optimizing output and durability.
Designed for Convenience:
Each Spiderlite head features built-in rod receptacles, allowing for softbox modification and mounting without the need of additional mounting brackets or adapter rings. This light head is also able to rotate 180-degrees.

Additionally, the Spiderlite head features an affixed tilter bracket for even more precise placement.
