Product Information

PLEASE NOTE: This video is not full a representation of what is included in this listing as some items are used for demonstration purposes only. Please see the “Specifications” tab for information on what this listing includes.

The softbox is an enclosure around a bulb comprising reflective side and back walls and a diffusing material at the front of the light. A soft box can be used with either flash or continuous light.

The problem you might be aware of when you use your flash lights is that the shadows of the object are quite sharp, creating an artificial look to the object. The easiest and probably most effective solution is to use soft boxes to diffuse the shadows. The octagonal shape really helps to engulf your subject with soft even light. The unique octagonal shape allows round, defined highlights with the main bonus of round catch lights in your subject's eyes

The softbox in this listing is 120m octagonal shape , comes with an Interchangeable speeding ring, and inner and front white diffuser.

Traditional setup softbox ideal for studio use

We also have the Easy setup version that can be found HERE.

PIXAPRO 120cm Recessed Octagon Softbox (No Honeycomb Grid)

I've rated this 4 stars only because I haven't used it yet. Quality seems more than satisfactory and I'm sure I'm going to be happy with it in use.

(5)   By: Graeme | 22 June, 2016

Don't be fooled by the price, the quality is top notch!

I received the 120cm Octa as a freebie with my second CITI600 TTL flash, having bought my first at the Photography Show earlier this year. I originally went to the show with the intention of looking at/buying the Phottix Indra (I checked it out and was quite impressed with it) but was so impressed with the CITI600's performance (and price), that I bought one.

Anyway, back to the Octa - firstly, it comes in a nice, Pixapro branded quality carry bag. Despite being a 120cm Octa, it packs down quite small, no doubt aided by the removable rear section, which is a great boon if you're going to use it with something like a quad speedlite adapter - easy to get to them without pulling off diffuser fabrics. The speedring is a chunky affair, the metal rods are sturdy and the outer fabric feels very thick and has an air of durability about it. The stitching is very well done and looks like it'll last for years. Initial assembly is straight forward if you've ever built a softbox - even if you haven't, the product video is self-explanatory and you'll have it assembled in no time. The softbox comes with inner and outer diffusers. The inner diffuser attaches via velcro tabs - so elegantly simple, they're verging on genius. Other manufacturers take note! Those silly elastic loops and metal clips that need the fingers of a five year-old to hook up are hopeless by comparison. The outer difuser slips on easily and is held firmly by more velcro tabs.

Light output is very even across the softbox and it's soft and well diffused. Used close-in, it's almost ethereal. There's a little more spill than with recessed designs, but then you knew that anyway....

All in all, it's a great quality Octa and costs a sixth of what you'll pay for a 120cm S-mount Octa from you know who.

Essentially a third of the price of a branded make and just as good quality.

For the money, superb! Essentially a third of the price of a branded make and just as good quality. I have Elincrom and Bowens soft boxes (mine is fitted with an Elincrom adaptor for my studio lights) and this is just as good. Ok, difficult to put up and down and pretty big, but it gives a great catch light (much better than a square)! Very pleased with this product.

Questions & Answers


Octagonal boxes (or Octaboxes) and Traditional softboxes pretty much work in the same way, but due to their octagonal shape, Octaboxes focus the light a little better than a square or rectangular softbox does, giving you a slightly better light output. Octagonal softboxes also produce more pleasing round catch lights in the eyes of your subjects.


Our Softbox speedrings are all comprised of two separate parts. The Outer-Ring which is the part where the softbox rods are inserted into, and an Inner-Ring which features the bayonet fitting for your studio flash head (the Inner-rings will vary in appearance depending on the fitting that you have chosen).

  1. First place the two parts on a surface with the four thumb screws facing upwards on the outer ring as shown in the photo below
  2. Remove all of the thumb-screws and place your inner ring in the centre of the outer ring bayonet side up as shown in the photo below.
  3. Once the inner-ring is in place, replace all of the thumb-screws to secure the Inner Ring in place as shown below.
  4. Your speedring is now complete and ready for use with your softbox.


All of the different types of softboxes in this range use the same speed ring, which is why there are more holes than there are rods for your particular softbox.

Please see the diagram below which shows you which holes should be used for each type of softbox.
