The 65cm Rice Bowl Softbox Photography Light features two layers of diffusion, made from high-grade nylon, with a special fine grid design for durability.

Perfect for times when you are looking for lighting with more specularity. It also helps prevent hot spots, when used in conjunction with both Diffusion layers.
The 65cm Rice Bowl softbox comes with a honeycomb grid, which enables you to further reduce the spread of light, helping to prevent light from spilling onto areas that you don't want it to (such as the background etc. It also produces images with a little more contrast, perfect for certain styles of photography such as low-key and cinematic portraiture etc.
The 65cm softbox is made from durable high-quality rods, inserted into hardwearing 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 65cm 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 Photography Light 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.

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.
