      Comments about Westcott Spiderlite TD3 Backlight Kit (120VAC):

      I was looking for a background light to go with my Westcott Skylux (couldn't afford a second Skylux).

      I tried a few things but they didn't work very well. So I bit the bullet and ordered this kit.

      First out of the box was the stand. What a well constructed and solid stand. I was very impressed at this point.

      Next was the light itself and again I was impressed. Very well made out of sturdy metal parts. A very solid unit. Still very impressed.

      Putting the bulbs in was a little funky but I figured it out. Only thing I'd improve it the tilter bracket, it just seems odd to me.

      Not sure I care for the difuser but it be a big help when I have to transport it as it will help protect the bulbs.

      It's a constant light which is what I wanted. It's not the brightest light but it works for what I need it for.

        Comments about Westcott Spiderlite TD3 Backlight Kit (120VAC):

        I like the cool fluorescent TD3 continuos lighting system from Westcott, durable, adjustable light levels, easy to operate. This kit has a 3-light head with stand and a very unique reflector for keeping light spills off your subject and on the background. It even comes with a protective cover to protect the lamps so you can leave them on the head. The stand is short and just the right height. Very good design and construction overall. Certainly worth the investment.

            Very soft even background light provides excellent separation. I have found this light works very well on location to fill shadows with soft even light. No more harsh strobe shadow casts.
