Westcott Optical Spot by Lindsay Adler Reviews
You really can get as creative as you want with the attachments. I love it!!!
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.
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!
Opened up a new perspective on shadows control
Did what it supposed to do , super easy to use and the quality of the kit is really good as well the lens that comes with it , it is a must have kit
So far, so good!
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!
I've just started using the optical spot but it sure seems to open up endless possibilities to future shoots.
My new favorite equipment
This is definitely my new favorite addition! I have so many more ways to control light and express a certain mood or look, the options are infinite and I'm really happy with this purchase! Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new upgrade in lighting.
