This 90cm 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.

  • Umbrella-Like opening mechanism for quick easy setup

PIXAPRO 90cm Octagonal Easy-open Umbrella Softbox with 4cm Grid

I was looking for a sturdy softbox umbrella... this item exceeds my expectations.

(5)   By: jon harrison | 28 April, 2017

Simply a LIFESAVER!!!!

i bought this softbox, as I do plenty of location shoots, and it can be rather annoying setting a softbox up with the rods and taking ages to put together and taking ages to dismount to move on location as I currently have a Profoto Octagon box which is great but isn't practical.

Been looking at this product for sometime and had my reservations, but I am simply AMAZED and love this box!!!! This certainly does the job, and what's more why are there not more of these on the market as they are fantastic!!! The build is brilliant and very high quality so this is reflected within the price.

I use an Interfit S1 and the Bowen's mount fits perfectly and it works a dream. The customer service is excellent as I received it next day without any issues. Love it and will buy more for my collections this is very practical to use

PIXAPRO 90cm Octagonal Easy-open Umbrella Softbox with 4cm Grid

Looks and feels very well made. Easy to use and seems very robust. Great value also.

Dont Leave Home Without It

This softbox goes everywhere with me, Weddings, Portraits, and Fashion shoots on location. Its the easiest to use softbox i have ever owned and certainly does the job well.

Constructed of hard wearing high quality materials and rugged enough for life on the road. It comes with 2 diffusion sheets giving you a lovely soft light on your subject.

I love the lighting attachment that can be purchased separately for this softbox, which allowes me to use any make speedlight as well as my Pixapro AD360 TTL Hybrid system. If your looking for something that's reliable and simple to use, you wont be disappointed with this purchase.

Questions & Answers

Answer:

The weight of the 90cm Umbrella softbox with Bowens mount will be approximately 2kg.

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;

How To Disassemble the Pixapro DeepPara Softboxes

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:


How To Assemble a Pixapro 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
