This kit Features two Spiderlite TD6 with 12 daylight-fluorescent bulbs, a shallow softbox, stripbank, and tilter brackets, this Spiderlite kit is the ultimate studio combination. The 38" x 48" shallow softbox has a 30% reduction in depth compared to a standard softbox provides providing a greater light output and features a 1/4-stop front diffusion front. When combined with the soft nature of the included fluorescent lamps, this diffusion panel provides just enough diffusion to soften the light source while still creating depth and dimension with specular highlights. This softbox provides a beautiful light source when paired with the included fluorescent lamps. Fluorescent lamps are diffused in nature and therefore need less room for light to travel.

These small lamps offer over 1200 equivalent watts of power per light head. This powerful output is perfect for shooting both photo and video. With today's technology, most cameras can capture amazing video as well. These constant lights are the perfect solution for anyone doing both photo and video as they are powerful enough to freeze action, and pure enough to capture amazing quality and color with video. These lamps are also custom-produced for true daylight color temperature (other lamps on the market can shift color up to 400-degrees Kelvin). Unlike photofloods that only last up to 60 hours, these lamps are rated for over 8,000 hours of consistent performance and color.

The Spiderlite TD6 features three separate controls giving photographers the ability to adjust the output of these lamps, 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. Each of these switches controls 2 lamps. The Spiderlite TD6 is constructed with a highly-reflective metal, optimizing light output within these softboxes. Softbox rod receptacles are built directly into the Spiderlite light head. 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.

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.
