Like all lighting products from Godox, the P2400 released with the Bowen S-Type mount. It leads to the P2400 having a wide range of light modifiers available on the market.
Softboxes and umbrellas are two of the most popular light modifiers for creating soft, diffused artificial light with a strobe. In more detail, a softbox simulates the soft, directional illumination that comes from the windows naturally. By transmitting the light through a diffusion panel, it softens and diffuses the lighting from the attached light source. Softboxes come in various shapes (rectangular, square or octagonal) and sizes. In this case, your flash needs less power output to achieve the same lens aperture. Because you are shooting through the softbox rather than depending on reflected light. To create the light narrower, you can also use a variety of accessories attached to your softbox such as grids.
The 170cm softboxes are also the popular choice for the P2400. As it is compact and comes with its honeycomb grid and has quick-release locking mechanisms. When compared, the 170cm softboxes are among the most popular diffusers as it creates more balanced lighting and even shoot through umbrellas. That’s why they're very popular in photography and video if you have a dedicated studio space. The octagonal shape is ideal for covering a circular area, alongside the honeycomb grid. This feature allows you to have more directional or spread light giving many options.

In other views, the photography umbrella is probably the most popular light modifier. Since it is highly portable, incredibly cheap and easy to use such as the Black/Silver Parabolic Umbrella. Similarly purpose with the softboxes, photographers can use umbrellas to create a wide, soft light source. However, umbrellas offer a more unconstrained sort of lighting that will essentially move wherever, as opposed to softboxes which give you directional control. There are two types of umbrellas: shoot-through and reflective which have a few variances in terms of appearance and usage.
For example, The PiXAPRO 40inch Black/Silver Umbrella is compatible with the P2400. It not only uses to soften the light but also a more portable arrangement that is quick and simple to set up and take down. Therefore, the PixaPro 40inch and the Black/Silver Parabolic can be the ideal choice for you if you need something portable.

If you want more contrast and specularity light, the P2400 works well with the R2400 and RFT-21W reflectors. Both of these lighting kits are perfect for use as either a main light or as a fill light.
