    Almost perfect

    Some years ago I modified a Profoto Small Spot to take a Dedolight condenser and lenses to give greater flexibility. This was my goto light on almost every shoot for some years. this Westcott attachment has all the requirements for versatility including, and this is a huge point, inbuilt shutter blades. The only issue I found with them was I could not get really sharp focus on all blades at the same time in some situations. The reason for this is that each blade is sandwiched between two plates to protect it from the other blades. The remedy (you will void your warranty if you do this) was to reposition the shutter blades so they are next to each other so that opposite blades are on the same focal plane and there is very little separation between the two pairs. This allows very sharp focus on all blade edges at the same time. Brilliant solution for a spot, great design otherwise. To all those photographers who contacted me asking where they could buy the parts to replicate my Small Spot rig, get this - much easier than having 4 free floating shutter blades.

    Versatile product

    Works as described. The ability to swap in EF mount lenses to change the size of the projection is super helpful. I used a 50mm lens instead of the 150mm lens for a wider look with palm leaves. 150mm is relatively tight in some situations. The swapping ability makes it more versatile than other optical spots, especially on smaller sets.

    Love this modifier! I've been looking for something like this for years. Some brands make great optical spots, but nothing for Profoto heads. This fits the bill and is a fantastic price point. No complaints!

    I really like this modifier. It does exactly as advertised and the price, at six times cheaper than the Broncolor equivalents, is very attractive. You can also pickup compatible gobos from other vendors!

    Can I use my Godox DP1000III Professional Studio Flash with this accessory?
    Asked by: Francisco
    Officially, the Westcott Optical Spot by Lindsay Adler for Bowens (B&H# WEOSLABWNS) says it's for studio strobes up to 600W/s and LED lights up to 100W. The major concern is the amount of heat that is generated inside of this tight-fitting modifier. Having said that, as long as you are not using the incandescent bulb of the Godox DP1000III Professional Studio Flash (B&H# GODP1000III) and you don't use the strobe in a way that results in a buildup of heat then the heat won't be a concern. Please keep in mind that using this in a way that's not consistent with the manufacturer's specifications might void the warranty.

These stated compatibility specifications ensure that all components are not damaged and continue to operate as intended.
