The Spiderlite TD6 is the industry's most powerful compact fluorescent lighting system on the market today. This kit combines two 6-socket light heads and 12 daylight balanced 50-watt fluorescent lamps (providing over 2400 total equivalent watts of power). Unlike many fluorescents, Westcott's custom 50-watt lamps offer true daylight color temperature measuring at 5500 Kelvin +/- 100 degrees and hold a CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 90+.
Three low profile switches on the back of the Spiderlite TD6 operate 2 lamps per switch and can be easily turned on and off to control light output (without changing color temperature). Added, a cord switch allows for powering on and off the main unit when lights are placed up high and difficult to reach. The mounting stud offers extra durability and ease of insertion into a number of grip attachments. The built-in adapter ring allows for quick and easy attachment of the included 36" x 48" Shallow Softbox and 12" x 36" Stripbank. The Shallow Softbox adds an extra punch of light perfect for photo and video while the stripbank serves as an ideal hair light, rim light or accent light.
