Product Details

The Strobelite pairs the highest quality engineered components with a compact and lightweight outer shell offering power, precision and portability at an affordable price. This unit is packed with punch offering 300 effective watt seconds of power.

Lights can be adjusted from 1/4 to full power or anywhere in between. This range allows you to easily change output allowing as much (or as a little) light as you need. Choose to preview light patterns with the adjustable modeling lamp that can be set to adjust up and down as your flash power is adjusted, allowing you to preview the intensity of the light falling onto your subject. There is also an additional option of keeping the modeling light on at full power regardless of adjustments or completely turned off.

Don't miss any action as recycle times run from 1.0 - 2.5 seconds. The higher the power, the longer the recycle time. The lower the power, the faster the recycle time. The long-range optical cell allows your lights to talk to one another and flash in sequence. This cell will automatically see the other lights so that all flashes are set off simultaneously. The included reflector helps direct the light forward as well as serves as a mount for accessories including barn doors and grids. An extra-long cord will make sure your light can reach nearby electrical sockets without the need for extra extension cords.

The included 2-hour long educational DVD covers everything from light setup and operation all the way to studio lighting for senior portraits, high-key, low-key and pet photography.

The Strobelite Plus with gels and barndoors

Meet the Affordable Compact Strobe

The Strobelite by Westcott offers power in a compact and portable unit. Constructed with a durable, lightweight polycarbonate, the Strobelite houses both a 200 and 400 effective watt-second strobe in a compact 4 pound body. With an actual meter reading of F22 at ISO 200, our most powerful strobe will give you the best bang for your buck, literally.

Precise Control

The Strobelite’s powerful output can be adjusted from ¼ to full power and everything inbetween. These adjustments are automatic, thanks to an auto-dump feature on our Plus version, which immediately reflects any output change. Modeling lamp previews are also automatically adjusted when power output has been increased or decreased, giving an accurate foresight into the intensity of the strobe.

Quick and Exact Recycling

Recycle times can greatly affect the images you capture. When strobe recycle times are lengthy, great shots are often missed. That is why the Strobelite Plus was designed with fast recycle times, regardless of the power output. With recycling times between 1 seconds (at low power) and 2.5 seconds (at full power), you’ll capture all of the action in your shoot without concern. The Strobelite is also designed with an optical infrared cell. This feature communicates with all other flashes in use, allowing for exact triggering and evenly illuminated photographs.

Mounting and Modifying

Constructed with an attached tilter bracket, the Strobelite Plus can be quickly mounted and angled on virtually any light stands. This heavy-duty bracket also support the weight of even the largest softboxes and modifiers, eliminating stress placed on the light head. This strobe also comes standard with a 15 foot removable power cord, sync cord, reflector, protective cap, flash tube, and modeling lamp.
