Westcott 403 overview

  • 1Description

The Westcott uLite Three Light Kit is ideal for the beginner to intermediate image maker in search of a reliable lighting system for still photography or videography.

The kit includes three uLite constant light fixtures, bulbs (2 x 500W, 1 x 100W) two medium (20 x 20") heat-resistant softboxes, 7' light stands, a 6" diameter reflector, and backlight stand.

The collapsible softboxes provide soft, natural-looking light with open shadows and manageable contrast, making them a perfect choice for portraiture and product imaging. The 6" diameter backlight light is ideal for creative effects or to separate your subjects from the background, reducing post-production work.

The two larger lights are rated at 500 watts and they're designed for use with the softboxes. The smaller 6" diameter, reflector-fixture is rated for 250W max, and it comes equipped with a 100W bulb.
Soft, Flattering Light
The 20 x 20" softboxes are perfect for products, portraiture and small video production
Standard Edison screw-in socket accepts a variety of lamps up to 500W (see note below)
Quick Setup and Breakdown
The collapsible softboxes and light stands set up and break down in minutes
System Integration
The uLite is a great initial purchase to build upon. Integrates seamlessly with any other tungsten source

    uLite 3-Light Lighting Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 92.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for beginners, like me... The uLite 3 Light Video Lighting Kit by Westcott is a great tool for the beginning professional photographer interested in creating a properly lit portrait.... I've done real estate headshots in the past without a light kit and once I started using this product, my photos were instantly more professional in appearance. The only minor complaint I have is that the lights do get very hot, very quickly, but that is to be expected. There was a flyer attached to the product offering their fluorescent lamp adapter, which is marketed as a cool alternative to the lamps provided in the kit. Overall, I am very satisfied and would definately recommend this product...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Prosumer level lit kit I use this light kit for my home studio, to record a talk show for youtube (The Interwebs Chat Show, if you want to see it in action). I don't like to post reviews until I've had a chance to really use the product and get a true feel for how it behaves, well after over a year of weekly use I can say that these lights are at the top end of the mid level light kits. The diffusers offer a great spread and while they put out a fair amount of heat they are not unbearable. I would HIGHLY recommend this kit to all those wanting to upgrade from a@special to something more professional.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything Included This is a very easy to use kit that includes all you need to star shooting pictures like a pro. I like the new soft boxes that have a little window in the back that can be opened to let the hot air out and vent thins for extended use. For the price you can't beat this deal. At fist there was some chemical odor coming from the soft boxes but it quickly went away after a few hours of use. I would have being nice to have a bag to store everything together but not absolutely necessary and again what do you expect at this price. I am very satisfied with this kit; it does everything I need to do to get good pictures in my home base studio.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Difficult to Erect but WOW!! I am using these lights for my budding video production company. The quality is better than expected for the price: sturdy stands, good quality soft boxes. They softboxes are sort of difficult to set up, suggesting they might be better in a studio as opposed to carrying them to shoots.But once put together, these lights put out an amazing volume of light with the included 500 watt bulbs. Having three fixtures means you can do proper three point lighting.I am experimenting with some lower power CFLs at 32K. Overall, this is a good kit for the money and I would definitely recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from uLite 3 Light Kit Vastly exceeded expectations. The price and value ratio is excellent. Reviews from others were very helpful in steering us to this product and we were especially grateful for the advice to duct tape the vent flap to make sure the lights breathe. This is a wonderful value and allowed us to immediately upgrade our photographic content on our Facebook page and website. We would recommend this setup for any small business trying to show their products or offerings. We shot using these lights against a black fleece backdrop. Killer photos without the need to do a bunch of high end editing on PhotoShop.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Covers all the bases Just got this light kit. It is basic but in a good way. Quality is acceptable, lighting is good, setup and tear down are quick. It's a good all-around basic lighting kit. Some people mentioned having to tape the softbox vents open. Maybe I'm not setting it up correctly, but I simply rotated the softboxes on the fixtures so that the vents (flaps) are on the bottom, that way when you open it gravity keeps it open; it works fine with no problems whatsoever. The only thing this otherwise complete kit is missing is a carrying bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and works well! This lighting kit exceeded my expectations. Setup was a breeze. From opening the UPS box, I had it up and ready to roll in less than 10 minutes. It works well for photo/video lighting. My only problem with it is the bulbs that came with it. They're very orange and I had to do more work in post than I like to. They're fine for what they are, but I prefer 5500k high-cri CFL bulbs for my shoots. Spend a few bucks on some new bulbs and you're good to go!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kit for the Price I wasn't sure what to expect from this kit. I got an assignment to shoot a series of interviews and knew that I needed some lights for the job. I did not have a lot to spend and this kit looked like the best value. I definitely got more than I had expected. The lights are easy to set up and are considerably brighter than what I thought they would be. This is a really great starter kit, and has made my video look so much better. My only complaint is that the stands are a little flimsy. Aside from that, I would recommend adding these lights to your tool set.
