Make the Switch to Westcott’s new Switch light modifier series! These ingenious modifiers give photographers the ability to quickly interchange off-camera flashes while maintaining the original Rapid Box’s convenient collapsible design. The quick-release thumb-lock on these softboxes ensures that the modifier stays securely affixed to the light while allowing users to quickly switch mounting inserts without additional tools or accessories.
Built with durable framework, long-lasting construction, and color-accurate fabrics, these modifiers are designed to withstand years of use on location or in the studio. The Rapid Box Switch’s taut silver interior provides maximum light output for working in any environment and the Beauty Dish Switch’s white interior provides ultra-soft lighting for portraits. Understanding that output and color accuracy are important to professionals, Westcott has vigorously tested their diffusion panels to create the most color-accurate fabrics in the industry.
Each Rapid Box Switch and Beauty Dish Switch includes a softbox, diffusion panel(s), and durable carry case for convenience and storage. The Rapid Box Switch is available in three octogonal, two rectangular, and three strip variations. The Beauty Dish Switch, a 24-inch collapsible beauty dish, includes a deflector plate and was designed in conjunction with professional photographer, Joel Grimes.
A total of 13 Switch Inserts (sold separately) are available for the industry’s most popular brands, including Balcar/Paul C Buff, Bowens, Broncolor, Dynalite, Elinchrom, Hensel, Norman, Photogenic, and Profoto. Speedlite and Profoto A1 inserts are also available. For precise light control, newly-designed 40-degree egg-crate grids are also available for each and every Switch modifier. All Switch items are backed by a 1-year limited warranty.

The Westcott Ice Light 2 LED light is an enhanced version of its predecessor built on the wish lists of photographers in the field. Ice Light 2 is engineered with patented new LED technology offering 50% brighter output than the original Ice Light and 1,740 lumens of beautiful daylight-balanced light while maintaining a compact housing. Weighing a mere 20 ounces, the Ice Light 2 can be easily operated with one hand, giving photographers and filmmakers the ability to simultaneously shoot and light their subjects.
Unlike traditional LED panels, the Ice Light has a built-in diffuser that is custom-designed to protect the LEDs and provide a vast 73° beam angle. This casts a large spread of incredibly soft quality light.
The Ice Light 2`s LEDs feature the advantages of high efficiency and colour purity with low energy consumption and long lifetime. Daylight-balanced at 5500K and rated for 50,000 hours with a stunning Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of 96 meaning the subject will be presented in near perfect light also the Ice Light 2 provides flicker-free output and stable light consistency perfect for photographers and videographers alike.
A removable Lithium-ion battery is yet another Ice Light 2 refinement. A 2.5-hour charge gives you 60+ minutes of runtime with the convenience of being able to charge a backup battery outside the unit. Affordable replacement batteries are available for prolonged use.
The Redesigned Handle offers a dedicated on/off power slider with an 18-step flicker-free range and a light output memory which remembers your last power setting between uses. Battery indicator displays the current battery level using illuminated blue lights. Both ends of the Ice Light 2 include 1/4"-20 thread`s to mount to a light stand, tilter bracket or tripod.
Ice Light 2 is designed for the future with built-in Bluetooth with USB connectivity that will allow use with smart device apps and is compatible with all existing accessories including the original Ice Light barn doors, tungsten gels, two-way connectors, and more.
From JP Distribution:
08-27-2013 - JP Distribution is excited to announce the introduction of the New SkyLux by Westcott. The first daylight-balanced Studio LED with a CRI Rating of 94+ that allows photographers to utilise their favourite modifiers with the addition of a single Bowens Mount Speedring.
The SkyLux is a beautiful full-colour spectrum of light, housed in a high-quality compact all-metal unit, which embodies a unique design with a flat front panel to protect the LED light source (meaning, there’s no protruding bulb or globe to shatter). The durable construction allows photographers to utilise their largest modifiers, like the Westcott 7’ Octabank. The Bowens S-Type mount allows for the usage of softboxes, umbrellas, snoots, barn doors and gels. Unlike units utilising halogen or tungsten bulbs, the SkyLux gives off little heat with its unique LED design and has a lifespan of over 50,000 hours. Photographers will find an internal fan to keep the unit cool with virtually zero sound while in operation. The quiet fan and flicker free LED technology is a perfect setup for videographers.
Westcott`s new line of PRO softboxes offer the same amazing high quality found on the 1000w softboxes for a fraction of the cost. For use with hot lights, strobes or LED`s these softboxes are a perfect fit for any photographer or videographer. Westcott boxes feature only the finest quality fabrics and are backed by a 5 year warranty. Diffusion materials are among the purest on the market meaning virtually no colour shift.
