Profoto 505-706 Octa Softbox with Removable Recessed Front - 5' (1.5m) Diameter

B&H # PROB5 Mfr # 254529
No Longer Available
Product Highlights
  • Reflective Interior
  • Internal Diffusion Baffle
  • Requires Speed Ring Adapter

This Profoto 5' (1.5m) Diameter Octa Softbox is designed for use with Profoto or other brands of strobes. It has an eight-sided, octagon shaped profile and a reflective interior. This Octa Bank gives you the option of removing the interior baffle for slightly more output or more fall-off on the edges, and the option of using the softbox without a front face at all, making it act as a giant reflector.

Use the 3' Octa for head and shoulder portrait work or still life applications with small objects.

      Comments about Profoto 505-706 Octa Softbox with Removable Recessed Front - 5' (1.5m) Diameter:

      Great softbox that gives nice even light. I still find myself reaching for the Beauty Dish more often though as it has a little more punchiness.

      Easy to assemble and attach. A hell of a lot easier to disassemble than the square softboxes.
