question

Is it practical to replace all of the fluorescent lamps with 50W LED bulbs? The Savage LED bulbs have fans in them.
Asked by: Mitch
If you choose, and as long as the LED bulbs have a standard E26 Edison base and the size of the bulbs fit without bumping into each other, the LED bulbs would be compatible for use with the Westcott Spiderlite TD6 light fixture.

question

Can I use 50w LED bulbs instead of Fluorescent?
Asked by: Mitch
The large base on LED bulbs including the Westcott 35w Basic LED Bulb can make it difficult to mount 6 bulbs in the TD6. Also, Most LED bulbs also have a heat sensor to prevent damage to the bulb and 6-50 bulbs within the softbox may trigger that sensor and cause the unit to shut down. 5 of the Westcott LED bulbs (fill central socket with smaller based LED bulb) can work and has been tested in the large shallow over several hours with no heat shut down. <a href= https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1297215-REG/westcott_367_daylight_led_lamp_with.html target= _blank >https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1297215-REG/westcott_367_daylight_led_lamp_with.html</a>

question

Would you recommend this for shooting a group of 7 people?
Asked by: Richard T.
I generally use this more for video than still photography but I have used it for a group of nine and it worked fine. Keep in mind that the light output isn't nearly as high as a decent size flash unit so you will need to balance your shutter/aperture/ISO to accommodate.

question

Any tips for removing softbox?
Asked by: Vanessa S.
The softbox has 4 metal poles to bend into the ring to put together or take apart. She might be used to studio strobes where you take the entire ring off but this light the ring stays and you take out each metal post...first take off the white cover on the front. It's a little challenging sometimes depending how well metal poles are stuck in the ring / how much tension but it does come apart that way. Laurie

question

Is there a bag that will allow you to keep the TD6 bulbs in place when travelling to location?
Asked by: Anonymous
Not available in the product that I received. Each bulb is packaged individually and can be used for transport. Cushioned bag would be easier to use and provide more efficient setup.
