Westcott 2028 overview

  • 1Description

The Westcott Bob and Dawn Davis Perfect Pair Kit is a quick, easy way to provide main and fill light in the studio or the field for weddings or other on-the run events.

The unique design of the included 28 x 28" Apollo allows it to open and close like an umbrella; no speed ring is needed. A 40 degree grid is included for control of the output. The 45" Round Halo softbox has the same fast setup design but with a round shape that creates ideal, natural catchlights in the subject's eyes. Two Adjustable Shoe Mount Brackets are included to hold the softboxes and accommodate your flash heads. Two lightweight 8.0' light stands complete the kit.

  • Halo Round Softbox - 45" (115 cm)

    The Westcott 45" Round Halo is a softbox that mounts like an umbrella onto many different brands of pack-type strobe heads. No speed ring is required. The Halo is mounted by using the hook and loop tape opening and to partially open the frame. The light inside Halo and shaft of the umbrella inserted into its receptacle. The Light may be moved anywhere along the shaft for harder or softer effects before being tightened down for use. 

    Note: For Monolights see BH# WEHM (cat # 2026)

    Mounts like an umbrella to your strobe head, softens in the same way as a softbox does
    Ideal for a 1 -2 person portraits
    UPC: 817967020251
  • Apollo Softbox with Recessed Front (28 x 28")

    The 28 x 28" Westcott Apollo is a softbox based on an umbrella frame fabricated from fiberglass for added durability. It needs no speed ring to attach it to a flash head. Simply open it, and slide the shaft into the umbrella receptor on the flash head or the umbrella swivel supporting your speedlite. A lightweight reflector plate may be purchased separately to produce indirect lighting.

    The 28" Apollo can be used with flash, fluorescent sources or hot lights up to 500 watts.

    UPC: 817967023344
  • 40° Fabric Grid for the 28" Apollo

    This is a Westcott 40° Fabric Grid for the 28" Apollo. This grid narrows the beam spread from your Apollo softbox to control spill light, soften contrast, and add directionality to this soft source. It attaches to the recessed front through the use of hook-and-loop tape. A grid is an essential accessory for any lighting system.

    Create Separation and Depth
    Grids are made up of cells that control off axis light in four directions while maintaining the soft quality inherent in a large light source. Use as a portrait source to keep light off your background. Or use the grid's control qualities to turn the orb into a large hairlight for groups. You can even clip gels to it.
    Eliminates Spill and Flare
    As light is focused into a forward direction through use of a grid, it can help to eliminate spill light or lens flare
    40° Spread of Light
    The off axis portion of the light is controlled by the cell size. The cell size (measured in degrees) describes the maximum cutoff angle of the off axis light. A 40-degree grid is the most popular degree used
    Light Loss
    Light loss at the center axis is minimal at a distance of up to 3 to 4 times the diagonal dimension of the light source. On most models it is less than a 1/4 of stop of light
    Perfect for Travel
    Soft grids collapse down for easy transport and travel
    Included Travel Case
    Each unit comes with a soft nylon carry case
    Easy Attachment
    Grids easily attach through the use of hook-and-loop tape. When attaching, place your diffusion panel about 1/2 way in on the hook tape. This will leave enough room for the eggcrate to attach directly in front of the diffusion panel
    Perfect Fit
    Grid corners are left unattached in order to provide the perfect fit. This allows you to stretch the grid taught and avoid sagging or drooping
    UPC: 817967024716
  • Light Stand (Black, 8')

    This black-finished, 8' Westcott Light Stand is made of lightweight, aluminum alloy with sure-twist section locks. It is an ideal stand for a travel kit with small light fixtures.

    3-Section stand.
    Will support up to 5.5 lb of lights with accessories.

Westcott 2028 reviews

Bob and Dawn Davis Perfect Pair Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great little set Love this set. Easy to set up, you do need to know your setting before sealing up either modifier as it is a pain to change anything once the rig is set. Otherwise, a good buy. I would wish for stronger plastic on the extension poles, some hard wind had them bending. The stands are standard in terms of being part of an inclusive kit. They too could be bolstered to give more confidence in the construction. If you do on location portraits in lieu of studio work, this is a good place to start. I would also pick up a few shoot through umbrellas in situations where you don't want the kit umbrella to fall into muck. I would add some photos, however everything I've shot lately has been comprised of minors... spring portraits being popular right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Setup! Love this perfect pair, it makes it feasible to walk somewhere on a shoot, very very portable. Good luck trying to find a comparable setup for this price! It smells funny, but I just aired it out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cumbersome I purchased this set last year and have had mixed results. The set up, when actually in use, works quite well. However, the design has some flaws including very weak stands that break easily. Neither piece fits all that well once mounted on the stands and do not line up properly with the provided holes. I have also had two stands break on me. Granted, 1 fell over and snapped and the other, which I purchased to replace the first, broke for no reason at all. If you buy this kit be prepared to upgrade your stands. The replacement or current stands are even weaker than thrones that came with the set when I originally bought it and scare me when placing my Canon 600 Ex Rt's on them at receptions. Overall I would suggest saving a few more dollars and getting the rapid box set for easier install though I cannot speak for the stands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bob does not disappoint So far I have used the apollo with a canon 430EXii flash with beautiful results. I couldn't recommend this set more, but keep in mind if you use this set, line of sight can be iffy, you will need a transceiver, I would recommend the Cactus V6, which has worked flawless with my flashes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, portable kit. This works great for on-location work. Compact and portable. Halo... pros: - Very quick to set up. - It is basically, just a shoot through umbrella, but the cover avoids the flare you'd get when the flash is close to the subject. - Can easily reach the flash to adjust it with the Halo on it. Halo... cons: - I have to modify the Halo with sticky-back Velcro to get it to stick to the sides of the flash so the back of the flash is exposed to easily adjust it. - Since it is a shoot-through umbrella, and the flash faces the subject, the light doesn't spread out as much as the Apollo, which bounces the light. It's much brighter in the center of the frame than the edges. Apollo... pros: - Light spreads out nicely without as much of a hot spot in the center, because the flash is bounced off the rear of the Apollo. - The fabric grid makes it a nice background highlight light. Apollo... cons: - Not nearly as quick to set up as the Halo. - You can't easily reach the flash. You have to tear off part of the recessed front and grid to reach the flash.
