The uLite Octabox 500W Tungsten Kit from Westcott is a good choice for a basic lighting setup for ecommerce, products and portraiture. The kit includes a 26" diameter octagonal softbox, a uLite constant light fixture, 500W photoflood and a 6.5' light stand.

The uLite fixture is a basic ceramic Edison socket with a swivel mount with a Baby (5/8") receiver for a light stand, a 500W rating and a 120VAC power cord with in-line switch. Designed specifically for the uLite, the Octabox features a built-in mount and a signature wrap-around quality of light, especially when used close to your subject. The Octa's unique shape also renders natural catchlights in the eyes of your subject that mimic the sun in outdoor venues.

    Comments about Westcott uLite Octabox 500W Tungsten Kit:

    I needed a simple soft fill/eye light for studio work and POOF, Westcott comes through again. Tungsten bulbs are always close to my heart for how they treat skintone and for a small unit, this puppy packs a nice punch. I just wish is was a little more robust in terms of frame; I will try to avoid bringing this in the field until I have an assistant who isn't an ex-baggage handler at JFK. GREAT for studio work!
