The PIXAPRO 105cm (25.5”) 16-rod Easy-Open Rice Bowl softbox with White Interior, is a convenient, easy-to-use light modifier, which can be used as either a traditional softbox or as a collapsible beauty dish. The softbox mounts to the front of your studio flash strobe, or your studio LED COB light, to produce soft, yet focused lighting, without sacrificing too much intensity. This softbox features an umbrella-like easy-open mechanism, which enables it to be set up and ready for use in a few seconds, perfect for use on location or in the studio. It features a white interior, to minimise specular highlights, whilst producing natural-looking lighting, with pleasing fall-off. This softbox is considered a workhorse among many working Wedding, Portrait, Lifestyle, Commercial, Beauty, Fashion, Food, Product, and macro photographers.
This 105cm umbrella Rice Bowl softbox features a white interior lining, which produces a more diffused quality of light compared to its silver-lined counterpart, with less specularity. It has black exterior material to prevent light leakage.
The 105cm Rice Bowl softbox features two layers of diffusion, made from high-grade nylon, with a special fine grid design for durability. These diffusers are resistant to Discolouration, which means that you do not have to worry about the softbox affecting the colour of your lighting. These diffusers can either be used one at a time or together, giving you full control of how diffused your lighting is.
The 105cm Rice Bowl Softbox comes with a removable Deflector-Dish, which enables you to use the 105cm Rice bowl as a beauty dish. Perfect for times when you are looking for lighting that is less diffused. It also helps prevent hot spots.
The 105cm softbox is made from durable high-quality rods, inserted into hard-wearing nylon material which ensures that it is up to the job of enduring professional use in the field.
The backing material, features press-studs near the mounting ring, allowing for easy access to your flash, strobe or Speedlite without having to remove the front diffusion. It also makes installing the softbox a lot easier.
Unlike traditional Octaboxes, the 105cm Rice Bowl Softbox features 16 rods which gives it a much rounder appearance. This produces pleasing round catchlights in the eyes of your subject, to emulate natural light sources such as the Sun. Especially desirable for portraits and commercial photography, as well as being useful for a fill or key light.
Unlike traditional Octaboxes, the Rice Bowl softbox uses a parabolic design, which focuses the light more effectively compared to traditional Octaboxes, allowing the light to travel over longer distances.
This softbox has been designed to increase the effective size of your light source, which produces softer shadow transitions, for more pleasing and flattering results. The diffusion layers help to reduce specularity, which prevents blown-out highlights. The deflector dish is designed to reduce hotspots for more homogenous lighting.
The 105cm Rice Bowl Softbox features an umbrella-like opening mechanism, which enables you to quickly and effortlessly set up your softbox in less than a minute. This is particularly well-suited shooting in outdoor locations, or when shooting at venues where you have limited set-up and packing-away times use.
A Honeycomb Grid is also available (not included), which effortlessly attaches to the front of the softbox with Velcro. The honeycomb grid narrows the spread of light, allowing you to focus the light on your subject, without it spilling onto the background.
The 105cm Rice Bowl Softbox has a unique interchangeable speedring design, enabling it to be used with a wide variety of flash brands currently on the market. This gives all photographers a high-quality, low-cost solution to their modifier needs. The Speedrings for the Rice Bowl softboxes are available in, Bowens, Hensel, Elinchrom, Broncolor, Multiblitz and Profoto fittings (please view compatibility table for more information).
The 105cm Rice Bowl softbox comes in a high-Quality Canvas carrying bag, which is great for portability, enabling you to easily carry your softbox wherever you need to go, whether it’s on location or in-studio.
The softbox is considered the workhorse to a photographer’s equipment arsenal, providing a soft, even, natural-looking light.
