These small lamps pack a punch with over 1200 equivalent watts of power per light head. With today's technology, most cameras can capture amazing video as well. These constant lights are the perfect solution for anyone doing both photo and video as they are powerful enough to freeze action, and pure enough to capture amazing quality and color with video. Here at Westcott, we only offer the best. After scouring the market for the perfect lamp, we decided the only option was to create our own. This lamp is custom-produced to true daylight color temperature. Don't settle for imitations that can shift color up to 400-degrees Kelvin.
Unlike photofloods that only last up to 60 hours, these lamps are rated for over 8,000 hours of consistent performance and color. Adjust power with three separate controls giving 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.
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. 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. Using the oversized handle and lock-down turn knob, rotate the light head 180-degrees and turn your softbox from a vertical to horizontal position in seconds.
The included location carry case actually give you two separate cases for the price of one. Use them individually or place the smaller bag inside the larger bag for easy travel.
