Product Information
Description

This 150cm octagonal 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.

 

Features:

  • Umbrella-Like opening mechanism for quick easy set up
  • Opens into an octagonal shape producing pleasing catch lights in your subject’s eyes
  • Ideal for the mobile photographer
  • Strong-sturdy frame
  • Highly reflective interior to maximise light-efficiency
  • Two layers of diffusion
  • Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use
  • Comes with removable 40mmx40mm honeycomb grid to reduce the spread of light

I like its ease of use.

I like its ease of use, umbrella-style softbox is a great deal for money. Quality is quite good and delivery was swift.

I Love it!!

Pros:
IT'S HUGE! = Super-soft light.
Smooth even light across its surface! = Nicer results than cheapo softboxes.
Opens/folds in seconds.
Super high quality, holds up to abuse VERY well.
Fabric not too tight or too loose.
Decent price for what you get.

Cons:
The fabric can slide off the poles when it's closed. Super easy fix in 5 minutes with a few zip ties or some string. I posted a video about it on Youtube but I don't think I'm allowed to post links here.

By far my favorite lighting modifier. And it's so big I also often use it as a bright-white background.
There are not enough of these in my life. I will be ordering two more soon, I just need to find a carry case big enough.
I want an even bigger one, but there are no easy-open ones bigger than this that I know of.

Questions & Answers

Answer:

You can use this softbox with your speedlite, in order to do this you will need to use our smart bracket found here; https://www.essentialphoto.co.uk/product/pixapro-smart-speedlite-adapter-bracket-bowens-s-type-fitting/ Once this is selected you will then need to change the fitting of the softbox to Bowens S-type fitting to fit this bracket.

Answer:

To set up the Deep Para softbox, you must simply push down each rod until they lock into place. To fold the Deep Para Softbox down you would again just need to push down on each rod and release the lock.

Please find below a YouTube video which helps to explain the setup of the Deep Para Softbox;



To set up the Umbrella softbox, you simply have to push down central plate in the middle until it locks into place. To fold the Umbrella softbox down you would need to push down on central locking mechanism this will then allow you to fold the softbox.

Please see find below a YouTube video which helps to explain the setup of the umbrella softbox:

Answer:

The Honeycomb grids (sometimes referred to as Egg Crates) are used to control the spread of light. The smaller the grid, the more concentrated the beam will be. These are ideal if you don’t want the light to spill onto certain parts of your set such as the background.

Answer:

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.

Answer:

Sometimes if you hold your Umbrella Softbox by the fabric, the fabric will come away from the frame of the softbox.

To prevent this from happening, look for the Velcro strips located near the centre of the umbrella Softbox, and wrap them around the spokes (as shown in the images below) to prevent the fabric from coming away again
