Westcott 4855 Overview

The Skylux LED 1-Light XL Kit with Rapid Box 48" from Westcott is an ideal choice for photographers looking for a powerful, digital-friendly light source with a soft, wrap-around quality of light. The kit includes the Skylux LED Light with umbrella reflector, ballast with case, protective cap, power cord, 48" Rapid Box Octa XXL, 13' light stand and kit case.

The SkyLux LED delivers 1,200 tungsten equivalent watts of output at a color temperature of 5,500K with a high Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 94. Wescott keeps the all-metal SkyLux lightweight by separating the flicker-free ballast from the head, allowing for a multitude of placement options. Dimming control from 30-100% makes excessive repositioning or use of scrims and ND filters unnecessary. The light comes with a silver parabolic reflector with an umbrella slot.

The included 48" Rapid Box Octa XXL is ideal groups, portraiture, fashion work or any field that requires its signature wrap-around quality of light in the studio or on the road. The softbox features sturdy aluminum alloy framework and removable interior and front diffusion panels. The Rapid Box lives up to its name, thanks to its built-in speed ring and compact, shallow design. A carrying case with a shoulder strap is included for storage and transport.

question

Will this light flicker at 240 frames per second?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Skylux lamp should not display a flicker at 240 frames per second. Avoid dimming the unit to the lowest power levels at this frame rate as the electronics of the fan can influence your video at lower power combined with a 240 frame rate.

question

Hi does the Rapid Box that comes with this kit have the Bowens mount?
Asked by: KIM H.
Kim,The Rapid Box with the kit does have a Bowens mount. The Skylux version of the Rapid Box has lower density diffusion fabrics than the standard Bowens and other Versions due to the already diffused light from the Skylux.
