The F.J. Westcott Company has introduced their new Spiderlite for still and
video imagemakers. The Spiderlite is less than five inches deep and is constructed
of solid metal. The inner metal surface of the light offers a highly reflective
surface. Any light falling backwards is again reflected back into a Soft Box
allowing for maximum output of the lights. Built-in points allow for direct
attachment of a Soft Box onto the Spiderlite itself. This not only cuts down
the cost of purchasing an adapter ring, but also allows the end user fewer parts
to carry or lose as well as quicker set-up.
