question

I have a 12 by 54 strip bank that is not a Westcott item. It has metal support rods and a Bowens speedring (which I know isn't necessary with the TD6) Can I use it on the TD6 without damaging the light unit? I'm pretty new to this studio lighting thing and I don't know if the metal rods would be compatible.
Asked by: Charles
Charles, most standard 4 rod systems from quality manufacturers will work with a TD6 but I cannot speak to a non-specific model of softbox. Perhaps if you share your brand softbox someone will have a clearer answer based on experience.

question

Can I attached a Parabolic Umbrella to this light? I have the d5 and I am unable to use one with it.
Asked by: Melissa R.
Melissa,The TD6 can be used with the 7' umbrella but you should also be able to use it with a Westcott D5. If you are unable to attach the Umbrella to your D5 please contact Westcott Customer Service for a solution. https://<a href= http://www.fjwestcott.com/support/contact-support target= _blank >www.fjwestcott.com/support/contact-support</a>

question

Can this mount to a regular light stand or does it require a specific westcott stand? Also, I have a Paul Buff 30x60 soft box and I'm wondering if this accepts any type of softbox mount?
Asked by: Stacey L.
We use this on the Manfrotto rolling stand, you don't need a westcott stand. We have the Westcott umbrella and soft box on ours, so I'm not sure about other modifiers.

Unfortunately, the largest lamps that this unit can accept would be the following from Westcott: <a href= http://bhpho.to/1vCXSLO target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/1vCXSLO</a>
