About Westcott TD6

The Westcott Spiderlite TD6 (6220) adds another socket for a total of 6 for increased light output. This light fixture accepts optional tungsten halogen (3200K) lamps up to 1200W maximum as well as fluorescents (3200 - 6000K) and screw-mount flash. Three separate controls allow multiple combinations of bulbs together with no color shift. The TD6 has all-metal construction with 4 built-in receptacles for direct attachment of a 4-sided softbox without an adapter ring.
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, yourcolor 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 Spiderlite TD6 offers the ability to switch between cool daylight fluorescent lamps to Tungsten Halogen hot lamps. Be prepared for any situation with one light head that can offer both options!

Where was Westcott when the light didn't

By

from Jacksonville, FL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

After the warranty expired, but with very little use, the light stopped working. I contacted Westcott for support. The following was their response. ================================= "Thank you for your purchase and taking the time to email Westcott. There is not a fuse involved or anything that is user changeable as far as making the light work again. If you've already tried different bulbs then it must be something electrical within. Because it is beyond the warranty period, you might contact a local electrician in your area to see if it cannot be fixed. Sorry that I cannot offer any further assistance on this. Jennifer Holtsberry The F. J. Westcott Company 1425 Holland Rd. Suite B, Maumee, Ohio 43537 ================================= They can't offer any further assistance? No parts available? Nothing? Good luck with that policy!

This Product is Great

By

from New Jersey  -  Pro Photographer

This is a great peace of hardware that allows you to position and control your light. I use it for portraits and photographing newborns acting as a window light. As the review headline states, "Simply Fantastic." Very easy to set-up.

Very well built lights, LOVE the bag

By

from san diego, ca  -  Pro Photographer

wow this kit puts out some light! very easy to setup. very well-built quality construction. i'm impressed with the lights and the bag that it comes with is perfect and holds the boxed lights, the TD6 heads, the lightstands, and other gear like my tripod and other stuff. very cool bag. the only drawback is that i'm not very strong and this is a heavy wheeled bag to travel with. it's at least 75 pounds. so i might just keep this in the studio and not cart it around. lol
