The Digital Juice Butterfly Frame Bundle (8x8') has everything you need to create large light sources, reflect or absorb light and mount the frame to optional C-Stands.

The Butterfly Frame has an ingenious design that will have you up, running and shooting in seconds. Unlike conventional frames there's no assembly of the 4 aluminum sides of this frame. Hinged corners allow it to "pop up" just like the smaller PVC frames but with greater structural integrity - a quality you'll appreciate in adverse conditions like windy days. Use the included white artificial silk diffusion material either overhead to soften harsh sunlight or vertically for a reflector or to punch strobe, tungsten or HMI light through. The provided solid black fabric is can be used to flag off the light, use as a background or create contrast with "negative reflectance." Use the included Bungee Cord Set to fasten the grommeted holes on the edges of the screen to the sides of the frame to make the fabric taught

This kit is ideal for small productions or even single shooters. While you can always press an assistant into service to hold the frame, why not use the included accessories to mount it to C-Stands to create a large tilting screen? The included C-Stand Frame Clamps make it a snap. Made of the same sturdy aluminum that the frame is, each clamp slides onto the frame and is secured by 2 hefty polycarbonate knobs. Pressure plates are built into the jaws of the clamp so that there's no danger of the tightened screw denting the frame. The 5/8" diameter stud at the end of the clamp fits neatly into an optional grip head atop the C-Stand (purchased separately). The frame can then tilt 360 degrees between the stands.

The kit is rounded out by 2 carry bags to hold the frame and its accessories.

Compact
While normal frames of this size need a large vehicle for transport, the Digital Juice Butterfly Frame Bundle can be folded up and transported with your other gear with room to spare. Best of all, it can be carried and set up by just one person.
Includes Bags
The Butterfly Frame Bundle comes in two bags, one for the black solid and white artificial silk fabric scrims plus the bungee tie-downs, and the other for the 8-segment collapsible frame.
Multiple Uses
On location the Butterfly Frame Bundle can help soften sunlight over an area large enough to cover your talent. In a studio situation, you can soften one large light source or you can turn multiple lights into a single soft light. With this kit, you can make almost any light a flattering light. And if you need a negative fill or black background this kit has you covered. The black solid scrim is made of non-reflective fabric that is perfect for studio product shots or for professional looking portraits.

          I work in a video production department of one, so I only want products that are manageable by a single person. This product is great. Easy and fast to set up and lightweight but durable. I've used Matthews butterflys before, but this is much easier for those without a crew.

            Comments about Digital Juice Butterfly Frame Bundle (8x8'):

            Though I've yet to use it on any exterior shoots, it feels very sturdy and you can set this up pretty easily. The most beneficial thing about this is that it's compact. You can transport it easily.

            They claim that you can set it up by yourself, but really, you can set up any 8x8 frame by yourself. This one is much heavier than the traditional matthews 8x8 frames that you would rent from a rental house, but that might just mean it's sturdier?

            The silk doesn't really say how many stops it cuts out - and it would be nice to have the option to get a ultra bounce as well.. but all in all, you're getting two fabrics, the frame and ears for a really good deal.

            Fabrics are high quality as well, stitching and all.
