The convenience of an umbrella meets the control of a softbox. Built on an umbrella frame, the Apollo light modifiers set up in seconds.
Perfect for on location
No additional parts and pieces to lug around as these units simply open up just like an umbrella and set up in seconds making them perfect for any on-location photographer.
No adapter ring required
Most softboxes require expensive and heavy adapter rings to properly set up. Built on an umbrella frame, these units simply pop open like an umbrella and fit into the umbrella receptacle found on virtually all style studio lights.
Perfectly paired with speedlites
The Apollo light modifier is a perfect pair with speedlites offering soft box control with the set up ease of an umbrella. An optional 5015 Shoe Mount bracket is required to mount the speedlite and Apollo onto a light stand with full tilting capability.
Fits virtually all compact studio lights
No need for an adapter ring as virtually all style studio lights come standard with an umbrella receptacle to attach the Apollo light modifier.
104-degree light spread
The larger the light source, the softer the light. That is certainly the case with this extra large 50" JS Apollo. Perfect for portraits and couples, this unit also offers a recessed edge allow better control of light.
Face the light forward through the white diffusion front for specular highlights. Specular highlights will provide a "hot spot" on your subject with a greater fall off from highlights to shadows.
Soft, even light
For a softer and more even light, an optional 2875 reflector plate may be purchased. This in-expensive bracket acts as a mirror bouncing the light back towards the back of the Halo light modifier resulting. This end result is your subject being very evenly light with just a gradual fall off from highlight to shadow. This is the same affect is using a softbox with the internal baffle and outer diffusion panel both in place.
Fabrics are pure in color so the color temperature going into the fabric is the same color temperature coming back out.
The large recessed edge provides even greater light control allowing feathering of light to see exactly where the light is starting and stopping.
