This Bowens Lumiair Octobank (55") is one of the most popular softboxes in the line. The unique shape and large surface area of this softbox create a signature wrap-around light quality with natural catchlights in the eyes.

For years, Bowens has designed and manufactured the industry's finest range of professional softboxes and now draws on this considerable experience to create the pinnacle in softbox design: the Lumiair.

Precision tension ensures the straightest edges delivering the perfect cut-off for fashion and portrait work, while the optimum color calibration of the reflective interior surface together with shallow construction, offers the highest degree of light efficiency.

Add to this two layers of diffusion and you have a completely even spread of light - no more than 1/2 stop from center to edge, with no distracting hotspots. Each Lumiair softbox comes complete with a simple zip-up carry case to ensure safe and easy transportation to location shoots. Lumiair professional softboxes also include the main canopy, a rear cowl, front diffuser, internal diffuser and support rods.

Lumiair softboxes come with a 2-part speed ring - a basic ring accepts the rods and the included Bowens insert. There are also inserts available for most other flash head brands.
