Westcott 440 overview

  • 1Description

The uLite uLite with 26" Octabox Kit from Westcott is a good choice for a basic lighting setup for ecommerce, products and portraiture. The kit includes a 26" diameter Octabox and a uLite constant light fixture.

The uLite fixture is a basic ceramic Edison socket with a swivel mount with a Baby (5/8") receiver for a light stand, a 500W rating and a 120VAC power cord with in-line switch. Designed specifically for the uLite, the Octabox features a built-in mount and a signature wrap-around quality of light, especially when used close to your subject. The Octa's unique shape also renders natural catchlights in the eyes of your subject that mimic the sun in outdoor venues.

    uLite with 26" Octabox Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low Cost Entry Into Continuous Lighting I must admit I bought this because B&H had a great sale price on it. Also I wanted to try continuous lights but on a low budget since it's new to me. B&H should feature the Westcott accessory, the Photo Basics 4 Socket Adapter. I bought mine at $. This gives you 4 lights instead of 1. You can buy CFLs or you can go the way of the future, LED lights. Home Depot has the CREE 60 watt LED lights with a CRI of 93. They are 2700K but you can mix these with other incandescent lights. Unfortunately these and 40 watt bulbs are the only offerings at 93 CRI. The daylight bulbs are 80 CRI. So, you can use this kit as your main light with other incandescents as fill. Nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a Pro Large and simple to erect, but professional in its construction, this light gives the photographer control that a camera's flash simply cannot. I only wish I'd bought a dimmer bulb, because even with the diffuser, it is very very bright.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome Box The Light from this box is very soft and beautiful. Although this box is made for constant lighting I have adapted this box to also use a speed light with it by using a bungee cord to hold the flash in place. Now I have a hybrid box.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flimsy The electrical and Octa are fine, the umbrella that holds the octa open is good for one opening and not much more. Typical of Wescott. I plan to set it up once and leave it. As long as it is not dropped it might have a chance. The light it gives off is very nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light for supplementing ambient light I bought this to supplement the daylight in my small studio - when it's cloudy this light does the trick to fill in where the natural light fails. I like the ocatabox shape as it gives more of a round catchlight in my subject's eyes (compared to the smaller square boxes). I haven't traveled with it yet, but set-up was so easy I can envision taking this along for location shoots as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from will be my main continuous light source This fixture gives me the option of using a 500 watt quartz light or using cfl/led's. With the latter, I can add a four way splitter to pump up the lumens. The front diffuser can also be pulled off for another stop of light. It packs up small,awesome!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for travel and beginners I got this for a head shot session with a client who wanted full white background. positioned the subject next to a window on one side, and used as fill light for the other. easy and effective!
