The Luxbanx Small Octagonal Softbox from Impact is a highly versatile tool for strobes. This 36" diameter softbox is large enough to exhibit the wrap-around light quality that this octagonal shape is known for, yet small enough to use in tight spaces. The softbox features a soft white interior, removable front diffuser and removable inner baffle. The diffuser and baffle can be used together for maximum softening of the output. Removing the inner baffle will give you a more crisp light quality with higher contrast, while shedding the front and inner diffusers turns the Luxbanx into a large reflector with maximum brightness and contrast.

The octa Luxbanx has an additional control via the optional fabric grid which mounts to the recessed lip of the softbox with touch-fasteners. The grid narrows and concentrates the light's beam forward, controlling spill and adding directional control to the Luxbanx's attributes. The large surface area of this octagonal-shaped softbox gives you a unique wrap-around quality of light that gains emphasis as you move it closer. Catchlights in the eyes of your subject are round and natural. Every Luxbanx comes with a carrying case and a spare Flex Rod. Separate purchase of a speed ring that matches your strobe's mount is required for use. Impact makes models to fit most popular brands.

    Comments about Impact Luxbanx Small Octagonal Softbox (36"):

    The build quality features are above that expected in this price range. Impact provides a spare rod, nice touch. Assembly can be eased by color coding the end tips of four rods that are ninety degrees opposed, making their select for placement in a speedring far less confusing.

    I purchased this unit for use with a speedlight and assumed that the 36 inch models was about as large as could be evenly lit by such a small, rectangular light source. I tested the Luxbanx using a Phottix Mitros+. The tests included using the speedlight with and without its diffusion dome, and the Luxbanx Octa with and without its inner baffle. The only evenly lit combination included both the diffusion dome and the inner baffle (see photo). Both suck light away. Nonetheless, at five feet, ISO 100 and full power I was able to get an ideal histogram at f5.6. Smaller f-stops or greater distances would have required a higher ISO.

    This assembly was pieced together using an Impact Bowens Speedring, and a Raya Bowens Speedlight Stand Mount (see other photo). I recommend them both.

        After reading one review about this box being hard to put together, I was concerned, but after receiving the box, it is as easy as any softbox to put together. Quick and simple. Good quality material and great results.

        Great sofbox for small areas and in the studio. Difuses beautifully. Only issue was putting it together - it's annoying but once it's done it's great. Not so good if you are on the go - you would not want to have to take this apart over and over again.
