Comments about Westcott Spiderlite TD5 Daylight Large One Light Kit Plus 900 (120VAC):
Great light in theory - I like the what you see is what you get. I shoot newborns with it, which is much better than popping light on these little guys and waking them up.
PROS - love the ability to switch off some of the light when you don't need it. Easy control.
Really easy light for children's and baby photography.
CONS - SO hard to set up. It's sold with a travel bag, and the weight is just right for it. Getting those poles into the ring is IMPOSSIBLE. I am a pretty strong woman, I'm 5'9 and I never have trouble with gear. This was exhausting. Nothing like the video with the demonstrator just placing them in. (interesting that they show the smaller models being assembled, but not the Large?) So much so I have not brought to a client's home as I'll look like a complete idiot. Poles are really too firm and difficult to assemble.
Great if you have a dedicated studio where it's not moving. Not ideal for popping up at a client's home.
