How To Assemble a Pixapro Umbrella Softbox
This 100x100cm easy open umbrella softbox has everything you love in a traditional softbox but with the ease of use and setup of an umbrella. This uniquely designed softboxes are made with the on-location photographers in mind.
The opening mechanism within the softbox is designed for quick and easy set-ups, opening like a regular umbrella, it expands into a square softbox. It will save you precious time, it also has well constructed frame, which is very sturdy, particularly well-suited for outdoor and on-location use.
The interior walls have a highly reflective silver lining to bounce and reflect all the light towards your subject with no spill.Front and rear diffusers can be used as required for more precise positioning and feathering. The softbox also includes a removable honeycomb grid to better control light spill. The honeycomb grid, also called egg crate, will result in a narrower spread of light which can be positioned directly onto the subject without light spilling on the background. The grid is very simple to attach using the wide Velcro strips on the inside of the softbox. The honeycomb is 40mm x 40mm , which is also 40mm deep. The honey comb cells are much deeper than most and hold their shape extremely well.
This umbrella softbox can also be packed down into a carry bag when not in use.
Please note the flash unit and stand are not included with this listing.
