Westcott Strobelite overview

  • 1Description

Wescott's Strobelite 2 Light Educational Kit is a great way to take studio quality lighting on the road. With a combined 600 effective watt/seconds, you have more than enough power for portraits, groups or product work. The kit is built around the Strobelite flash head which offers 300 effective watt/seconds of power with stepless variability from 25% to full power, as well as fast, 2.5 second recycle times and built-in optical slaves to avoid a tangle of PC cords. The 100W modeling lamp allows you to pre-visualize the light falling on your subject before triggering your Strobelite. Convenience features include a ready light and audible beep to insure that your lights are powered up and ready for action. The kit includes two 43" white translucent umbrellas, two 6.5' light stands and a carry case. A unique aspect of this kit is the inclusion of a light-placement floor mat and dedicated Educational DVD that walks you through lighting techniques and setups.

  • Strobelite Monolight

    The Westcott Strobelite is a 150Ws lightweight, inexpensive monolight which includes a modeling light for ease of composition as well as a reflector and mini to PC sync cord. The Strobelite recycles to full power in 2.5 seconds with action-stopping flash durations of 1 - 3 ms. The high-impact polycarbonate housing includes an integral grip handle which is especially useful with large softboxes or umbrellas.

    Optical Slave
    Built-in optical slave "sees" the light fired from other strobes, fires the unit instantly.
    Infinitely adjustable from 1/4 power to full power.
    Polycarbonate housing -- monolight weighs less than 3.5 lb (1.6kg).
    Gathers and intensifies the light output.
    User Friendly

  • Optical White Satin Diffusion Umbrella (43")

    The 43" Optical White Satin Diffusion Umbrella from Westcott is a light modifier that exhibits wide coverage, low contrast and a substantial boost in the ambient light level. Sturdily built with fiberglass rods and a metal shaft, this umbrella is well-suited to group shots, providing fill light and high key effects. It also has the ability to become a shoot-through modifier. Instead of traditionally bouncing your light source inside the umbrella, turn it around and aim the convex side of the umbrella toward your subject. While still diffused, you'll get wide coverage and a snappy look with more contrast.

    Easy to Mount
    Most studio lights include a built-in umbrella receptacle for instant mounting. There are also a variety of mounting brackets available for speedlights with adjustable and tiltable options for precise positioning.
    Modify any Light
    The umbrella can soften, reflect, and shape whatever light source that you use.

Westcott Strobelite reviews

Strobelite 2 Light Educational Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great beginner lighting kit For the past several years, I've relied on natural light, reflectors, and speedlights. I decided to purchase studio lights and didn't know where to start. I finally decided on this kit because of the floor mat that shows you exactly where to place the lights. The floor mat makes the lights incredibly easy to set up - absolutely no guessing required. My only complaint is that the lights beep to let you know when they've recharged. The beep can get a little annoying. Overall, I feel like the value is great...if you price it out separately per piece (which I did) it's a fairly decent cost savings to buy the kit. Great for beginners!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Kit! I use the product for indoor shoots for models and a local clothing brand. The lights are great and they allow me to capture what I wanted. For beginners kit this is the perfect kit with a great value. The only problem I have with it is not being able to sync it correctly. I have two receivers that I put on each monolight and a trigger on my camera. It works fine but the problem is that the monolights also goes off any flash that is around affecting my shoot when there are other photos being taken around me. Other then that the kit is perfect. I hope theres a way I can fix my syncing issue though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Confusing product information While the strobes are if very good quality, and work very well, there are some issues that may appear that could be of importance to others. First off, the notifying beep after the recycle time. While I do tend to like having the audible beep to let me know they are ready to fire, these are loud (to me) and a moment too long. Unfortunately, there is no mute switch in these strobes. The other issue that arrived is the uncertainty of what product you've purchased. Westcott themselves have this package as having 2 300 w/s strobe lights. The same as B&H. However, the packaging lists the strobes as being 150w/s each. While that may not matter to some, it matters to me. I don't want to order and pay for something I did not order. When I contacted Westcott about the issue, I was told that it was older packaging. Not really reassuring to me, unfortunately. The stands are a little in the less-sturdy side, but usable in studio. The umbrellas are decent, but won't hold up long under heavy use. The bag included had a tear along the inner seam new out of the box. Unfortunate. Needless to say, I decided to return this package and search for something better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent kit It's not a bad kit. The beep after every shot gets anoying but at least you know when they are ready. Feel sturdy enough. They sent the kit with two different temperature modeling lights. I kept thinking something didn't look right till it finally dawned on my. One is much warmer than the other. Great kit for a beginner trying to learn. Wish they ere a little more powerful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little 2 light kit!! Great little 2 light kit for portable shoots and/or studio shoots. For the price point, pretty hard to beat, especially considering they're 300 WS each light. I didn't bother with the educational dvd stuff as I know most lighting but i could see how a lesser experienced photographer may like the info in it. It's great that the kit includes a carrying case that is surprisingly light, and functional. I even have room for another light, if i wanted, and/or another umbrella. Since this kit came with 2 umbrellas, though, and 2 light stands, not a problem! The only cons to this kit: light stands are obviously made of a cheaper, too-light material. Sand bag them whenever possible. The recycle time of 2.5 seconds is rather long, but that's what you get in a price point like this one. Overall, very pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have only had this light kit for a couple weeks, but so far I'm very impressed with it.
