Westcott Eyelighter 2 Reflective Panel

BH #WE5230 • MFR #5230
Westcott Eyelighter 2 Reflective Panel
Key Features
  • Measures 57 x 25 x 21"
  • Durable Aluminum Frame
  • Support Spine Tilts up to 74°
  • Unique Curved Design
Larry Peters and Westcott have joined forces to bring you the Eyelighter 2 Reflective Panel. When lighting for portraiture, traditional flat panel reflectors do a good job of providing bounce fill light under the subject's face, but render catchlights in the eyes that can be less than natural. The Eyelighter 2 addresses the problem by providing an arc-shaped highly reflective silver surface that tilts up to 74 degrees and matches the natural curvature of the human eye. Now you can achieve clamshell lighting with a single light source. The Eyelighter measures 57 x 25 x 21" and comes with a carry case for storage and transport.

Innovative Design

Featuring a durable aluminum frame and highly-reflective silver surface, the Eyelighter 2 produces a reflection and attractive catchlight for professional portraiture. Now, portrait photographers can achieve clamshell lighting with a single light source.

Unique Design

This arched reflector was inspired by the unique curvature of the human eye. Specifically designed for beauty and portrait photography, the Eyelighter 2 reflects light toward your subject. Unlike triflectors, its catchlight is seamless, without unflattering gaps.

Quality Construction

The frame is constructed from strong aluminum allowing for lightweight durability. High quality reflective fabric is incorporated in this modifier, while tension rods are utilized to pull it taut, maximizing the light output.

Compact

The Eyelighter 2 collapses down to only 36" and quickly stores in the included carry case for travel to on-location shoots.

I wish I didn't take so long to order this. Used it for the 1st time yesterday and was blown away by the results. Say goodbye to editing, this makes headshots so easy. The eyes just pop with perfect catch light everytime. Ya its a bit big but easy to set up so no big deal. If u shoot headshots I would highly recommend this item.

This reflector gives a different light to your pictures. This thing is real big and you need a small stand to put it on if you're photographing people.

Amazing for beauty

The way the reflector is folded in the box leaves it creased and you are unable to remove the creases even though it is stretched as taut as the frame allows... this is very disappointing. I would look elsewhere if I were to buy another one... Given that, the Westcott is overpriced, and I would expect better quality from them.

Love this

This is a great catch light and it provides a really nice balance of light on my subject. Really happy with this eye lighter.

Is this portable enough to be used for on-location headshots?
Asked by: Pearl
Yes, it's portable. I breaks down to a small size (setup takes a few minutes). The main rails are curved, so it still needs a wider bag to carry in. Keep in mind you'll need a short light stand to mount it to, and also a weight if the stand isn't bottom heavy. This is a pretty large modifier and at certain angles it can become unstable on a light weight stand.

Asked by: Nicolaas
The Panel only does not come with the frame and support. If you purchase the Eyelighter 2 (SKU #5230), you receive everything except for a light stand.

Is there a lower stand recommended then the #9908 stand?
Asked by: Robert
Not really! If you have a shorter subject you can use a short stand such as a background light stand. Is all depends on the angle of the eye lighter and the distance from the face. Any stand will work as long as the top of the is 1/2 inch dia.

Whats a good economy stand for the Westcott Eyelighter 2 ?

We Recommend Westcott's #9908 8' light stand. Collapsed, it is the perfect height for the Eyelighter.

question

Whats the difference in the Eye-lighter 2?
Asked by: Joshua J.
The spine of the original Eyelighter was preset at the angle (front to back) determined by the inventor , Larry Peters, to be optimal. Version 2 can be set at that angle from one direction and can also be tilted up to 74 degrees.
