Product Details

The 1200-watt Spiderlite TD6 paired with the 7' Silver Parabolic Umbrella is an amazing combination providing a huge daylight-balanced light source. Packed with punch, the silver interior umbrella is an ideal pair with the soft natural output of the included daylight fluorescent lamps. The added diffusion front for the Parabolic Umbrella offers even softer results and can also be paired with strobes or speedlites.

The Spiderlite TD6 with 50-watt lamps provides 1200 equivalent watts of daylight power. Three switches on the back of the light head allow lamps to be run in pairs of 2, 4, or 6, allowing you to adjust power. The light head features an all-metal construction, 180-degree rotation, and a built-in adapter ring ensuring continuing quality.

The 7' Parabolic is designed with a solid metal shaft constructed with a steel insert for added durability. The shaft is tapered to 7mm to fit European style receptacles.

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.
