        Excellent studio light

        Not so great if you want to take it down a lot (you have to remove the light bulb to collapse the umbrella/octabox)

        I would recommended, as long as you know it takes a bit to take down.

              Comments about Westcott uLite Octabox 500W Tungsten Kit:

              Though it has some plasticky feel to it, the light works very well. It has a flap on the top to let heat out during long shoots but no way to keep it open (easy fix, add another strip of velcro. Easy to put together.

              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!
