The Westcott Illusions uLite 2-Light Green Screen Photo Lighting Kit (120VAC) makes the world of green screen photography easy and accessible no matter what your level of experience. Instead of battling the elements or costly location shooting, let this kit bring the location to you. Everything you need is here: 2 uLite Constant Lights with collapsible softboxes, 6.5' stands, 9.0 x 10' wrinkle-resistant green screen and a PhotoKey 5 Lite Software disc. The software has 9 Effects and Color Correction Filters, 20 Overlay Graphics, video tutorials and an online manual.

So How Does It Work?
It's simple. Westcott has created a complete kit including everything you need (minus the camera and computer) to superimpose an image onto any backdrop. Travel to Paris, place a baby on a flower petal or set foot on the moon without having to go anywhere. It's ideal for adding a sense of place for portraits.
Go Green
Chroma-key green, that is. The magic behind this whole process is the green screen. Included in this kit is a 9.0 x 10' extra-large green screen backdrop that is constructed from a heavy-duty wrinkle-resistant matte fabric. You simply hang this background onto any wall or background system using the included pole pocket and grommets. Once hung, place your subject at least 3.0' in front of the backdrop and take your video footage. (Make sure you frame only your subject and the green screen.) The 3.0' distance helps to avoid any shadows on your backdrop that would need to be taken out during post-production.
The Next Step
The next step is correctly lighting your backdrop and your subject. The uLite was designed to do just that. Although the uLites are designed to be compact in nature, they project an extremely broad area of light coverage. Basically, you can light a larger area with a smaller box. This simple 2-light setup will properly light up both your subject and the 9.0 x 10' included backdrop.
Simple Set Up
The uLite is one of the first collapsible softboxes designed to give you the amazing light quality of a traditional style softbox, without the tedious set up. With one simple push, your softbox takes form and locks into place.
Powerful Tungsten Lamps
The included two 500W lamps offer plenty of power to make sure both your subject and green screen are properly lit. Lamps are rated for over 60 hours of use.
PhotoKey 5 Lite Software
PhotoKey 5 Lite instantly removes green screen from your photos and replaces it with a new background image with only a handful of clicks. Shooting on green screen has never been easier! Improvements to the interface make PhotoKey 5 Lite faster and easier to use than ever before. The Home screen provides instant access to training videos, updates and the latest news. The software instantly and effortlessly removes the green screen from a photo as soon as it has been imported.
Enhance Your Photos
Included with PhotoKey 5 Lite is a selection of color filters and special effects for adjusting the appearance of your images.
Comprehensive Documentation
In addition to the free video tutorials PhotoKey 5 Lite is provided with a detailed online manual. Quickly search for the feature you want to use and discover everything you need to know.
Choose Your Background
You can use any image for your background. Work with your own photos or images from stock libraries to find the perfect complement for your green screen photography. As an added bonus, Westcott has also included 200 digital backdrops and 20 overlay graphics to get you started right away.

      I purchased the green kit for our high school tv production program. I find the two lights a great help in creating videos. The green screen is much bigger that I thought and made out of fabric. Hooks in the wall are needed or some type of large stand to hold the screen. Despite this, the kit is being used to its fullest and is worth the price.

      Good for the money

      We needed an inexpensive, green screen background and additional lighting. This gets the job done.

        Our 11 year old niece is thrilled to be adding green screen technology to her love of making videos on her iphone. We set this up for her in the basement and it is the perfect set up...Lights, GreenScreen, etc. If you want to get an early start on a successful future, this is the perfect kit! Thanks B&H.

          I have set up the lighting system a couple of times now.It is a little cumbersome but it does seem to get better with each time.I have two issue that is why I gave it a 4 stars instead of 5 1) There are no written or video instructions even though on the light box's it says to follow the instructions. I was able to find a video from Westcott regarding this lighting kit. 2) According to the video the box's are suppose to be attached to the lights, they are not and they are just about impossible to fold back on themselves like they should so I just remove the box's from the lights.

                My main concern after reading many other reviews for similar price range products from other companies was quality. We are an elementary school, and the students are not always careful and/or gentle! The green screen is actually a fleece material which seems to be better than other types of materials in terms of wrinkles. The light stands and shades are much better quality than I expected and I trust they will hold up well with adjustments. The first teacher that used it raved about the difference it made over his homemade set-up!

                  If you don't need the software to export transparent files, then PhotoKey 5 lite will do wonders within it's program. If you need to export transparent background files for Photoshop, then you'll need Photokey 6 or 6 Pro. That's my only dissapointment but the upgrade to 5 lite - 6 (not pro) was manageble via FXhome's upgrade path. B&H was very helpful, as always, in recommending the best work around and FXhome was quick to respond to any questons.

                  Everything worked like a charm and I highly recommend this if you're on a budget, or not! :)

                    The lights are easy to set up and very bright. The green screen is easy to stretch to get out the wrinkles and is large enough for a group of 6 or so for pictures. The software is very good at isolating out the green and inserting a background with a minimum of learning curve. It really helps to get another set of tripods and rod to hold the green screen rather than tack it to the wall.

                    I ordered this kit so I could take holiday and family photos. The kit was delivered quickly and in one piece. Hats off to B&H for their service, but, thumbs down to Westcott for preparing a kit with one BROKEN light. Luckily, the lights are inexpensive and easily replaceable. I'll have a new light and be able to start shooting in a few days. Overall, I would recommend this kit. It will pay for itself with just a few uses.

                    This product was easy to set up and works great. The lights are very bright and the soft boxes seem durable.I did open the box and expect to get 2 locking washers (to hold the round meatel peice from comeing back on the bulb) but the box only contained 1 locking ring. I contacted the manufacture and they have one on its way and said it will only take about 4 days.
