Newest Additions of the Speedlite Light Modifier Family Provide Compact and Natural Diffused Lighting for On-Location or in the Studio
TOLEDO, Oh. – June 1, 2008 – Westcott’s popular Apollo line is now available in kits with adapters for Speedlites. The Apollo requires no adapter ring as it is built on an umbrella frame for use with a standard umbrella receptacle. The umbrella frame also provides easy opening and closing for quick set-up, tear down and storage. Speedlite users brought to Westcott’s attention the love of the Micro Apollo but the need of the 28″ size. With this customer demand brought the introduction of the #5015 Westcott Cold-shoe mount. This allowed the Flash that was once mounted to the imagemaker’s camera to be mounted to a stand and ready with an umbrella receptacle.

The Mini Apollo Flash Kit provides the imagemaker a 16" Mini Apollo with the shoe mount and an L-bracket to allow height adjustment for the flash within the Apollo. Suggested retail price of the # 2219 Flash Kit is $103.50. The Mini Apollo Speedlite Kit includes the same contents as the Flash Kit along with a Micro Apollo (#2200) and 8' light stand. The suggested retail of the Mini Apollo Speedlite Kit # 2201 is $149.90. This allows the imagemaker diffusion for the flash while on the camera or on a light stand as well as the option of light modifiers on more than one flash in tandem.

With the success of the Flash Kit and Speedlite Kit brought the Apollo Speedlite Kit. Customers that were impressed with the convenience of the Speedlite kits, but wanted a larger light modifier can now enjoy the benefits of the 28" Recessed Front Apollo with the shoe mount. This kit retails at $149.90. The square shape of the Apollo allows you to scrim or control the light more readily, and the recessed front gives directional control with easy feathering of the light. Maximum light output is achieved with the silver interior of the Apollo.

The Westcott Apollo offers 104 degrees of light spread.
