The Westcott 1200W Spiderlite TD6 7' Parabolic Umbrella Kit is a huge daylight source with added punch thanks to its silver interior. Imagine welding several beauty dishes together, then add the wrap-around light quality of a really large light source and you have the Parabolic Umbrella. It features a solid metal shaft that tapers to 7 mm to fit European type heads like Elinchrom, as well as standard 8 mm models. The included bonus front diffuser offers even softer results.

The kit includes the renowned TD6 lamp head and 6 digital-friendly, daylight-balanced, 50W full spectrum fluorescent lamps with a CRI of 90+. Three switches on the light head allow you to use 2, 4 or 6 lamps to control power output. All-metal construction, 180-degree rotation and a built in adapter ring make the TD6 a favorite of photographers and videographers alike.

        Comments about Westcott 1200W Spiderlite TD6 7' Parabolic Umbrella Kit:

        the light quality is really good although a little uneven (the sweet spot is an extremly small area for a 7" umbrella) - the diffussor works well - I am curious to see how it will work with 1 of their softboxes

        I think the lightbulbs, although very good quality ave over priced when compared to a 93 CRI, daylight balance Eiko - the hole for the umbrella needs a greater angle so that the lights would be directed to the middle of the umbrella instead of of being focused just off of the center - the umbrella tensioner could stand to be improved as well - I would prefer a detachable AC cord - and surprisingly, there is NO FUSE or breaker, make sure you use this with a power strip that includes one or a UPS

        Comments about Westcott 1200W Spiderlite TD6 7' Parabolic Umbrella Kit:

        Make sure you have a solid stand to put this on. this umbrella is HUGE. You will not want to use a cheapo budget stand for this. The parabolic umbrella is HUGE. It comes with a diffuser and when you use it you get some very soft even light.

        Construction is very sturdy, I was impressed by the quality overall. If you can't use a strobe this is a decent alternative, but if I were serious about needing a huge parabolic umbrella I would most likely go with a strobe since this is a little underpowered. If you need a hot light that stays cool I would put this at the top of the list.

          I am so glad I bought this light set up. The umbrella makes beautiful light and worked out great for a bride and groom formal session in the studio and a 4 hours long Pin-Up session. I want more of these lights!
