This is a Westcott Spiderlite TD5 Ultimate Daylight Kit. This 2-light Ultimate Kit includes a large 36 x 48" softbox and a strip 12 x 36" silver interior softbox, tilt brackets, 2-10' heavy-duty light stands and a wheeled kit case. For illumination, 8-50 watt and 2-20 watt screw-in fluorescent bulbs are included. For light control, a 40° fabric grid is provided for the strip bank, and a boom arm allows overhead placement of the strip bank.

The Westcott Spiderlite TD5 fixture accepts tungsten (3200°K) or fluorescent (5000°K) bulbs. Three separate controls allow running of multiple combinations of bulbs together with no color shift.

            Comments about Westcott Spiderlite TD5 Ultimate Daylight Kit (120-220VAC):

            These lights are perfect for someone that does both photography and video. I've used them professionally for the past month and it truly is "what you see is what you get". They do not put out a lot of light, so you'll have to use lower f-stops and bump up the ISO. One thing that you'll need to adjust to is that they do not freeze action like a strobe. For video shoots, they give off really nice and even light without the heat.

            My only complaint is the setup of the 36"x48" softbox. I've never in my life had more difficulty putting a piece of equipment together. Getting the fourth metal rod into place was next to impossible without some assistance. I did not have this problem on the smaller Wescott softboxes I've used.

            Overall, these are very solid pieces of equipment. The case that comes in the kit is very high quality. They are now powerful enough to completely replace the use of strobes, but they work quite well for many situations.

            I'm curious to know how well the optional strobe bulbs work on these.

              I bought the Spiderlites Daylight Kit 2 weeks ago and I wish I had them 2 years ago.. As Kelby says "they are almost like cheating".. just turn them on, adjust for the desired shadows, snap away .. and BOOM.. fantastic soft light!

              I have a ton of equipment in my home studio and I can see me selling the majority of it after using these for a few shoots. They are heavy and very professional lights.
