Westcott Strobelite overview

  • 1Description

Wescott's Strobelite 3 Light Educational Kit is a great way to take studio quality lighting on the road. With a combined 900 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 Backlight Stand that's compact enough to hide behind your subject is also included. 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.

  • 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 3 Light Educational Kit is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice set up I usually prefer natural lighting but purchased this studio kit to be able to offer more versatility for my clients. Set up was easy - now comes the learning part. :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It doesn't seem like 900 watt-seconds. One of the three flash heads was defective. I used the other two in a photoshoot. The flash heads worked well using the built-in slave which was triggered by the camera mounted flash. The model lights vary nicely with the power level on the heads. The included carry case is great for travel. The heads are described as 300ws each, but seem a bit weak in light output to me. The reflectors arrived with dents in them, but they were easy to remove.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good I bought this kit as my first lighting kit. I did not have the money I would have liked to spend on a lighting kit; however, I wanted to start off with something simple. I have not used the educational DVD or floor mat yet. I am still a little confused why they say each light has 300 effective watt/seconds when the replacement lights are only 200w/s. They are not that powerful; however, it is a good starter kit. .....
