The Westcott Spiderlite TD5 light fixture accepts tungsten (2800K) or fluorescent (500k) bulbs. Three separate controls allow running of multiple combinations of bulbs together with no color shift. It has all-metal construction with built-in points for direct attachment of a softbox — no adapter ring is necessary
900 watts of continuous daylight or tungsten power.
This durable unit is perfect for on-location or in the studio offering up to 900 effective watts of power per light.
Daylight or Tungsten.
The Spiderlite TD5 was the first light to offer 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!
Adjust light output.
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! (Switch one controls the top and bottom lamps; switch two controls the right and left lamps; switch three controls the center lamp)
All metal construction.
The Spiderlite TD5 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.
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.
15′ extra long power cord.
No need for additional extension cords as this unit comes standard with an extra long 15′ power cord.
Included tilter bracket.
The included tilter bracket allows the Spiderlite to be tilted to precise angles.
