Octagonal modifiers are ideal for photographing people. Due to their round shape, Rapid Box Octa softboxes leave a natural, more appealing catch light in your subject’s eyes. These modifiers are a perfect key light for portraits. The Rapid Box Switch is designed for use with the most popular strobes, speedlites, and monolights. With 13 interchangeable light mount inserts and 9 collapsible light modifiers, this is the premier softbox series that Switches with you.
Constructed with solid aluminum umbrella-inspired framework, the design of the Rapid Box Switch maximizes durability, minimizes weight, eliminates the need for separate support rods, and makes setup a breeze. Everything is simple, quick, and compact. After your shoot, the Rapid Box Switch breaks down instantly into a sleek carry case for travel and storage.
Pairing durable fabrics with a quick-collapse frame, our Rapid Box Switch softboxes offer the professional light modification that you’re looking for without the tedious setup. Our diffusion panels are constructed with an all-natural, unbleached nylon fabric. Unlike processed diffusion fabrics, these diffusers will soften your light source without altering its color temperature. The optional Deflector Plate minimizes hot spots and creates a stunning beauty-style light output. These plates are easy to use with all Rapid Box softboxes.
We purposely designed the Rapid Box Switch with an external mount. By keeping your speedlight or strobe outside of the softbox, you can quickly access controls and utilize the line-of-sight (or optical wireless) functionality. Of course, radio triggers can be used as well.
Switch Inserts attach your light source to any Rapid Box Switch light modifier in an instant. This durable all-metal adapter slides quickly into the rear tabs of your Rapid Box Switch and secures in place with the thumb-lock.
