What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

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.
