Product Highlights
  • 36" (91 cm) Diameter
  • Fits the EX and EXD Flash Heads

The Interfit 36" Octobox gives you a leg up when it comes to lighting people, especially for portraits. The softbox-like diffusion, combined with the wrap-around quality of the light and the round catchlight (due to the octagonal shape) lets you bring the light up close to your subject while keeping an acceptable contrast ratio, with a beautiful gradual fall-off of the light. The Octobox comes with speedring, diffuser and assembly rods.

Combines the best characteristics of an umbrella and a softbox

        Pro's this softbox provides good light output, I am using Canon 600ex-RT Speedlight.Con's it is difficult to assemble and disassemble the pocket in the fabric that the rods fit in could be bigger.This would be great in a studio if you could leave assembled.

          I really like the price.

          I expected it to be a hard set up but with time I can have this thing up in no-time.

            Comments about Interfit 36" Octobox:

            The 36 inch octobox that I ordered recently arrived just in time to shoot photos of my son's senior prom. I was able to photograph, for the 1st time, outside with pleasing results on quite the gloomy day. And with a group of about 6 high school seniors, was able to achieve a somewhat decent even flow of light. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating, was because the speedring included is more meant for the exd light heads and not so much for the ex models.
            Great product!

              Comments about Interfit 36" Octobox:

              I am getting into stobist lighting and needed a softbox to expand beyond an umbrella . This octobox is wonderful and well made and I purchased it upon reading a previous recommendation in reviews . It was noted that an XS kit was used to make this setup work for speedlights, so I purchased the XS kit also. I realized after I started assembling everything that the smaller 16 inch softbox speedring was going to be needed to make this unit fit onto the speedlight bracket. The speedring that comes with this box would need to be discarded in this situation. This unit is meant to attach to Interfit's strobe system (hence the great price). Anyway , with a little ingenuity I was able to get this great softbox attached to the XS bracket.

                Very nice looking box for the price point. Not to mention the features. You don't often find an inner baffle on an inexpensive box like this. No instructions to assemble, but it's easy enough to figure out. I use this with my Nikon CLS system, so I needed a Interfit INT326 Strobie XS Bracket to get in on a stand with an SB-800 flash unit. This is awesome on location, you will not be dissapointed. Waay better than the Morris box I have been using for the past 3 years.

                      I am giving this soft box 4 stars only because it does not come with instructions. The material is heavy and well made. I was a little skeptical because of the low price, but I am very satisfied. No velcro on the face. If you are putting this together with the speed ring that comes with this box it has numbers on the ring put the rods in the holes with numbers that match together those numbers will be opposite each other put the rod in the pocket with the velcro last. enjoy

                          I picked this up because I wanted to experiment with portrait work, works great! would suggest calling B&H to make sure you get the correct mounting and brackets for it, and Assembly was a nightmare with no instructions included! I found instructions for a softbox on Interfit's website but there was a little stress at first. But for sure a good low cost softbox

                            Bought this to use with a SB-900 and it works well. Also used with a bowens strobe and provides plenty of soft light for single flash portraits. As the other reveiws state it is a bit difficult to put together so it won't come apart anytime soon.

                                Mainly use it for portraiture work on location, most of the time handheld, with speedlights. Requires a speedlight bracket, if you want to use it with a speedlight like the Canon 580EX II.
                                Great diffused light, with an even spread and affordable enough for the use/abuse outside.
                                Not made to be assembled and taken apart easily.

                                I bought one of these a few months back and this is one of those products that ages gracefully. I ordered a second one and decided it deserved 5 stars. The build quality is good and the price is excellent. The size is large enough to be flexible, but small enough not to have to break it down for every photo shoot. I did have to order a Bowens speed ring to use with my flash units. My only suggestion to B&H would be to offer this with different speed rings. Cost me about $24.00 for a proper speed ring. This is the one if you are looking for an inexpensive, good quality, portable octobox.

                                  This octobox probably would have got a full 5 stars if there would have been any instructions included. I managed to put it together in about 11 minutes and discovered I put the ring in backwards. I am rating it based on the price so it is a good product with a good build quality. I planned to use it with my 580ex ii, but that will require some additional hardware that I ordered from Cheetahstand. [...] I am [...] very pleased with the octobox.

                                      Good construction. Includes internal baffle and sprredring. I had to substitute the speedring adapter for my brand of lights, but that is a fairly inexpensive alternative to purchasing an entire SR unit. The outer diffuser has an elastice cuff that stretches over the box nicely. No struggling with velco. This is a hard to beat unit for the price.

                                          I used this product for corporate portraits and I didn't really notice any huge advantage over this compared to my large soft box that I normally use. I like the fact that I did not pay the $300 price tag of an octobank because I would have surely been disappointed. The assembly of the product was quite tedious and I am sure entertaining to anyone who happened to be watching.

                                            I've been looking to add a softbox to my lighting setup but wanted to use my Nikon Speedlights as my light source. This softbox came with a "generic" mounting ring which made it easy to pair with a bracket for holding my Speedlights. Setup was a bit slow as their were no instructions, but I went to the website and found what I needed. Inside baffle spreads the light nice and even. Great product, great value.

                                                Before purchasing two Interfit 36" Octoboxes, I already had a Photoflex 3' Octodome and a Photoflex 5' Octodome. So, I already knew the immense value of an octogonal softbox for portraits.

                                                While the Interfit version is not the same build and certainly not as rugged as the Photoflex models, they are MUCH less expensive and perform as flawlessly as their more expensive Photoflex counterparts were it counts, a perfect catch light and a wrap around lighting effect.

                                                In fact, based on the price\performance of the two 36" Octoboxes, I plan to invest in Interfit's 79" Octobox.

                                                It should be noted that the speedring that comes with the 36" Octobox is meant to fit the EXD series lights. You will need a different speedring to use it with some other lights.
