Product Details

The Spiderlite TD6 is the most powerful and compact constant lighting system available today. This durable unit is perfect for on-location or in the studio offering up to 1200 effective watts of power per light, in both tungsten or daylight-balanced output. 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! Three separate controls give photographers and videographers the ability to adjust light output, without changing color temperature. Every time adjustments are made, color temperature can shift greatly when using an adjustable rheostat. With the Spiderlite's power switches, your color stays constant, meaning 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. This surface was intentionally designed to be highly reflective to maximize light output. Any light that is projected back towards the light base is bounced off the silver surface and projected forward for maximum efficiency.
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 rod 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. There is also no need for additional extension cords as this unit comes standard with an extra long 15' power cord. An included tilter bracket allows the Spiderlite to be tilted to precise angles. Power the unit on and off through the UL-approved heavy duty cord inline switch.

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.
