    Westcott Strobelite reviews

    Strobelite Monolight is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from BEEP... BEEP.... BEEP... I was looking for a low power, variable power (with clickless dial button) mono light. Something I can get 2 or 3 for when I want to travel light. I've been using Dynalite packs+heads for the past 20 years. I was considering getting two Dynalite Jr. 250 Monolights. Then I saw this! For the price, it looks great! The design makes it look better than some $600 units. Comes with a 7 reflector - my Dynalite grids fit right in. Has a quick recycle (better than other units in this price range)! I couldn't resist! I bought it! So, i take it on a job... and guess what? You can't turn off the AUDIBLE READY BEEP. For that one reason, I returned it. How much would it cost to put in a on/off switch on the beep? $10? $20? Fix this issue and I will buy it (i'll buy two or three) and even recommend it to my friends/colleges and students. Imagine having three of these beeping while u shoot. And if you have them at different power settings, each is going to beep at different intervals. So, you will hear not one, but three, LOUD beeps (BEEP...... BEEP............. BEEP...) after each shot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light me up...Beep. This monolight is a perfect light, whether you're shooting in studio or outside with a battery pack. It's lightweight and inexpensive, offering you a chance to grab other items from BH's wide variety. On first impression, the body has a nice feel to it. It's sleek design has a fantastic rubber texture, which I really like. The body and mounting bracket seems to be made of some type of plastic, perhaps ABS. I wish the mounting bracket were made of metal, similar to the 400W/s model. Compared to the 400W/s model, the 300W/s model is missing the on/off buttons for the sound and optical sensor. Everything else seems to be the same. As others have mentioned, there is control for the sound and optical slave sensor; This means that they are always on. I would not recommend bringing this to weddings, receptions, and similar events. For those, opt for the 400W/s by Westcott as they have controls to turn both sound and optical sensor.The beeping sound doesn't bother me as I'll be using it in a studio or on-location. It's helpful to know when the device is ready to fire another go. I'll be covering the optical sensor with a screw/nail cap in the hopes that it won't detect flashes; in case on-location friends decide to snap their own photos.The modeling light has two three settings: 0 for off; I for constant maximum output; and II for variable output depending on the power dial. I usually just put it on maximum,and then turn it off once I've had the correct setup. Lastly, since there is no auto-dump feature on this particular model, the device must be fired every time you turn the dial; so it can refresh to the correct power output.Included in the box were the following: Westcott Strobelite, with flash tube, fuse, and protective cap already attached. 100W modeling light. 7 Reflector. Mini-PC sync cord. Power cord. Extra fuse. Manual. Additionally, attached are more pictures, as this product only had one image.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BANG for you buck I just got this light very recently and my initial impressions are great. It is solid, the Bowens adapter holds softboxes tight. It compliments my 300w/s studio monolight wonderfully. My 300w/s light has a 3x4 softbox, and the Westcott has a 2x3. With this setup, at the same distance, the Westcott is exactly 1-stop difference when set at the same power output (1/8, 1/4, 1/2, etc). This makes setting up my lights amazingly simple. The recycle time is fast. At full power I had to wait just over one second. My 300w/s unit takes about 2-seconds. The unit secures in a solid fashion. I needed a second light that was compact, and this works perfectly. It is very light weight which would work well on a boom.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light...inexpensive If you need bigger light that plugs in, this is your light. It isn't winning any races, it isn't winning the be quiet game, it isn't winning the most adjustable controls. It is winning in bigger light than a speedlight and quicker recharge times without overheating or extending the delay. Again, you can't think this is going to compete with einstein's or profoto...but if you need some cheap light that adjust from 1/4 to full power and can stand hearing beeps then this is your light. This will not overpower the sun. Indoor studio background lights...perfect!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have two now would get two more. I got one as a back up for portraits. My speedotron power pack went out. so I started using the Strobelite MonoLight. I used it all of 2013 for 88 Portrait sessions. $$ Strobelite vs $$to replace my Powerpack? I chose to get another Strobelite and two more I will be ordering soon....Beeping came in nice, during a sessions. .Recharge time is fast enough for portrait sessions..Like Like Like the Price and the product Thank you Westcott.Cons: Tilting lock needs to improvement.Umbrella lock also needs improvement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice light...great prices This light maximizes bang for the buck. With its continuously variable power and max power the light is powerful and feature packed at a low price point. Construction is solid, wired flash works as does optical slave mode. Only two annoyances: 1. Wire sync falls out of my D700 2. There is a beep when the light is ready...doesn't bother me but it might bother you. No you can't turn it off. That said I almost always use an optical sync so the wire can be ignored and again the beep doesn't bother me.... I plane to get another (if I don't opt for the 500 W/s strobelite plus)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from worth the money I know own two in a studio and am very happy with the results and ease of use..only thing that I wish it had was a mute button.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not purchase this! Unit makes a sequence of horrific beeps after each strobe that cannot be turned off.
