 Where to Buy

Product Details

The Spiderlite TD6 head is constructed of all-metal, leaving no plastic to break. There is 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.

Here at Westcott, we only offer the best. This lamp is true daylight color temperature. Don't settle for imitations that can shift color up to 400-degrees. Unlike photofloods that only last up to 60 hours, this lamp is rated for over 8,000 hours of consistent performance and color. There is no need to worry about your subject being uncomfortable by the heat of your light, these lamps also stay cool by generating very light heat.

This shallow softbox features a 30% reduction in depth compared to a standard softbox providing a greater punch of light. Due to the shallow nature of this softbox, it is ideal when working in cramped conditions.

High-quality light stands are included and incorporate tubing that is 2x thicker than most tubing commonly found on market. This will provide extra durability as well as product longevity. An carry case is also included which actually provides two separate cases for the price of one. Use them individually or place the smaller bag inside the larger bag for easy travel.

Spiderlite TD6

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.

Exceptional Features

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.
