    Westcott D5 reviews

    D5 5-Socket Light Head is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations This was a last minute purchase after a session to photograph a newborn was shifted from the studio to the client's home that I hadn't previously visited and I needed a portable, constant light option to boost available daylight. I loved the individual switches to control output. The head itself is light but rather bulky once the bulbs are screwed in but got the job done for a very reasonable price. It's a shame it doesn't work with the Westcott modifiers I already own but it exceeded my expectations for an entry level product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase This item is very straight forward easy to use. No frills and little to go wrong with it. Just put in what ever bulbs you need for your purpose and go. Light weight and seems durable. My only problem is that one of the ones I received had the head turned in a T position instead of an X. So if you put a bulb in the bottom you couldn't use the umbrella hole, I simply unscrewed the face plate and reinstalled it at an 1/8th of a turn.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I plan to use this for still life photography as well as portraits. The five switches are great for modifying the light.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, slow delivery I love the D5 5-socket light. I use it with an octagonal 32 softbox. I'm not so pleased with the fact that the product was listed as special delivery but was back-ordered from Westcott. It was not possible to get an actual delivery date, but then pleasantly it did arrive within the originally anticipated window. The product specs are also inconsistent from Westcott, which lists that you can use up to 50W bulbs in each of the sockets on their web site, but the product insert says up to 85W. After back and forth with B&H as well as Westcott customer service, I was able to confirm that you CAN safely use up to 85W bulbs - as long as they are fluerescent and not halogen. Overall, it's a good product, and my experience would have been a 5-star if (1) the product were available sooner with a clear delivery date and (2) if the product specifications were clear and consistent about which bulbs were appropriate for the light head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product As advertised no bulbs no stand just a socket head used for umbrellas & softboxes , I had hard time searching for socket light head that has umbrella port and I finally found it. The results were excellent thanks to B&H and the amazing products from westcott
