      I use this Profoto Rfi Softbox Octa attached to a Profoto Speedring for my Canon 600ex-rt. The Octa sits at the end of a Photoflex Lite Reach which my assistant holds above the Couple during their formal dance to provide soft fill light or key light.

      This exact same set up comes in handy inside the church for the formal family photos as well.

      Build Quality is PROFOTO QUALITY which pretty much means its a REALLY GOOD quality Octobox.

      Other uses include, food. product and ofcourse portrait photography.

      Just get it already. You wont regret it.

      Set up is painful. I use this with the Elenchrom speed ring and it pretty much takes away the portability of my Ranger. The RFI (with Elenchrom speed ring) is meant for in-studio work where the octaboxes will be permanently set up and not for easy transport/on location work.

      Pros: well built, softens light as expected.

          Comments about Profoto 3.0' RFi Octa Softbox:

          The material is nice and thick. This baby will last a very long time. My only complaint would be that the outer diffuser seems to be very tight fit when velcroing it to the sides of the octa.

                    I use this octa for on location, studio, and wedding shoots and I absolutely love it. Setup is a breeze and I just leave the rods in the octa to make setup quicker. I pair it with my profoto speedlight speedring and they work so well together.

                        This Soft-Box works well. Comes with a nice case and materials used are very good and durable. The rods are strong and attach easily into the Profoto Speed-Ring (sold separately). Goes together and comes apart with ease.

                            Excellent build quality and light quality. Once you insert the stays into the sleeves, leave them in there. I can assemble and disassemble in under a minute. For those who struggle with the assembly, read the instructions! Make sure you insert the stays at 180 degrees from one another when beginning assembly. Once those four stays are in, do the same with the remaining four. Don't be afraid to put some bending pressure on the stays. Once the first two stays are installed, it often helps to put the octabox flat on the floor and apply some downward pressure to the speedring to help insert the remaining stays. Do the same when breaking-down.

                                    Beautiful light, beautiful handling due to beautiful build. I should have purchased sooner.

                                      The materials and build quality of this softbox are excellent. I'm sure I'll be using it for years to come, so that's important to me. I expect nothing less from Profoto products.

                                          Comments about Profoto 3.0' RFi Octa Softbox:

                                          There's a reason that Profoto has some of the most quality products around. This softbox is solidly built and once I figured out how to set it up — it was fast and easy to build it. Despite the solid construction, the weight of the softbox is light and it doesn't get hot when used with their 500/500 D1 lights.
