Product Highlights

  • Slim Strip Form Factor
  • Quick Release Corners
  • Heat Vents
  • Removable Front Face
  • Accepts Optional Grids
  • Includes Carry Bag

The narrow profile of the Medium Half Dome with Silver Interior for strobe lights from Photoflex is designed with a silver interior for videographers and photographers who use hot lights. The softbox can also be used for strobe lights. The recessed front face permits optional grids that narrow and direct the output and control spill light. A removable strip mask is included with each HalfDome to narrow it further.

The HalfDome is an ideal choice as a hairlight for group portraits or for elegant, elongated catchlights in product photography. It's also a space saver when shooting in tight spaces and easy to shoot over when used as a foreground light. A speedring for your brand of strobe is available separately.

  • Narrow-faced soft box fits into smaller sets
  • Light spread - softens the light source and eliminates the hot spot
  • QRC (Quick Release Corners) - for stronger corners and makes it fast break down
  • Suspension loops - suspends the light without using a boom stand
  • Silver interior walls - to work with the heat of hot lights and also with strobes
  • Optional grids - allow you to keep light off the background and specifically on the area you want
  • Heat vents - flaps open to help keep box, strobe or hot light cooler
  • Carry bag - included for easy storage and transport
  • Size 9.5 x 35 x 17.5" (25 x 89 x 45 cm)

      Comments about Photoflex Medium Half Dome nxt with Silver Interior (15.5 x 55 x 23"):

      I really thought I'd done my research before making this purchase. Hopefully, you will learn from my mistake.

      This is bad design. The inner diffuser fits so loosely that I thought it was a manufacturing defect. The fitting of the dome over the rods is so tight that velcro fasteners won't actually fasten. And the material at the back of this dome puckers and spills light.

      I really wanted to love this stripbox. Obviously, I am extremely disappointed. I purchased my HalfDome 2 with a grid and speedring--which would buy me two comparable stripboxes and grids. I cannot return this product quickly enough.

          Like any other PHOTOFLEX product I own, this one is a nice addition to my arsenal, HalfDome 2 works great with hot lights giving an even illumination, you my say it is a light spreader. The only thing I DON'T really like is the flimsiness on the sides, in overall the fabric of the softbox won't be as tense as any other of the softboxes I own, a few of them from PHOTOFLEX.
