Product Highlights
  • Bowens Speed Ring
  • Removable Front, Silver Interior
  • Internal Diffuser

This is a Bowens Softstrip Softbox. It's front diffuser measures 55 x 15.75" (140 x 40cm). The Bowens range of soft boxes has been developed to offer photographers the very highest-quality light source at a very modest cost. Their silver interior and shallow construction offer a high degree of efficiency while a translucent diffuser ensures even light distribution.

For a completely even spread of light an internal diffuser has been included to minimize the possibility of hotspots. To ensure easy transportation of your softbox, a simple zip up carry case is included as well as a speedring and an 'S' type adaptor for immediate mounting to your Bowens monolight.

Each softbox will accept all Wafer adapters and can be used with most popular flash systems.

"S" Ring
The adapter ring has a unique design that tilts out as the box is assembled. When the fourth wand is inserted into the adapter ring, the whole adapter swings into the assembly and locks into place -- no more struggling with a difficult fourth wand.

        i use the soft box for fill and alone when i want a narrow beam of light
        it works great on men when you want a more defined edge

          I have 2 Bowens Gemini 500 monolights and these softboxes fit perfectly. I use them for photographing artwork and work great. I can control light the way I want and avoid glare on the artwork.

              Comments about Bowens Softbox - ~55x16" (140x40cm):

              We are using this for full length model shots.
              Pro's - well-made/sturdy, goes together easily and rapidly. Came complete with the correct adapter ring for my Ca1umet/Bowens strobe. The main ring is hinged, which makes setup even easier. Provides even light

              Con's - none.

              I've only assembled it about 6 times, so I can't say how it will stand up over the years, but I'm happy with it so far.

                I use this as a normal softbox but with extra range. It's great to be able to trun it into the working position. It was difficult to set up onto my Dynalite head...once I did that it's not bad to set up on the jobsite.
