Product Highlights
  • Attaches in Seconds
  • Narrows Beam Spread
  • Folds Flat for Storage

This is a Westcott 40° Fabric Grid for the Apollo Strip. This grid narrows the beam spread from your Apollo softbox to control spill light, soften contrast and add directionality to this soft source. It attaches to the recessed front through the use of hook and loop tape. A grid is an essential accessory for any lighting system.

Create Separation and Depth
Grids are made up of cells that control off axis light in four directions while maintaining the soft quality inherent in a large light source. Use as a portrait source to keep light off your background. Or use the grid's control qualities to turn the orb into a large hairlight for groups. You can even clip gels to it.
Eliminates Spill and Flare
As light is focused into a forward direction through use of a grid, it can help to eliminate spill light or lens flare
40 Degree Spread of Light.
The off axis portion of the light is controlled by the cell size. The cell size (measured in degrees) describes the maximum cutoff angle of the off axis light. A 40-degree grid is the most popular degree used
Light Loss
Light loss at the center axis is minimal at a distance of up to 3 to 4 times the diagonal dimension of the light source. On most models it is less than a 1/4 of stop of light
Perfect for Travel
Soft grids collapse down for easy transport and travel
Included Travel Case
Each unit comes with a soft nylon carry case
Easy Attachment
Grids easily attach through the use of hook and loop tape. When attaching, place your diffusion panel about 1/2 way in on the hook tape. This will leave enough room for the egg crate to attach directly in front of the diffusion panel
Perfect Fit
Grid corners are left unattached in order to provide the perfect fit. This allows you to stretch the grid taught and avoid sagging or drooping
Material 100% Nylon
Beam Angle 40 Degree
Dimensions Open: 16 x 30 x 1.25" (40.6 x 76.2 x 3.1 cm)

        Comments about Westcott 40 Degree Fabric Grid for the Apollo Strip:

        Right off the bat, I love the control Apollo's Strip box provides. This adds even more control. It produces truly beautiful rim light, and works as a dramatic main light. I have lots of plans for it, which strikes me as the mark of a good modifier. When using it, be sure to set the diffusion panel as deep into the box as possible. That will create room for the fastening strips on the grid and make it much easier to install. This grid gets 4/5 because I can't vouch for the durability yet. I have no reason to suspect it will be poor, since my Apollo products are all holding up well. It's also a little expensive, but it's a labor-instensive product, and in my opinion, worth it.

              The 40 degree grid gives me great light control for the Apollo strip. This attaches easily to the strip box, and folds down nicely to fit into the included storage bag.

                I have become a "grid" fanatic over the last year or so. This grid makes keeping unwanted light off the background easy. I love the look of light ON the subj while keeping it off everything else.

                  I can't imagine using any soft box without having the option of a grid and this one does what it should. Light and easy to use. Even comes with a carry bag - unlike the Apollo soft box it's made for.
