The Rapid Box 26" Octa Speedlite Kit from Westcott is a kit that includes everything you need to shoot 1-light portraits except the speedlight itself.
The Rapid Box is a light modifier that provides soft, even light right from your speedlight. A tilting 5/8" receiver stand mount/shoe mount/speed ring combo is included to attach your speedlight to the octa box. It disengages quickly from the box allowing it to close like an umbrella.
A 1.0 stop diffusion panel is included, as is a deflector plate. The diffusion panel is removable, revealing a highly reflective, high-output silver interior. When the deflector plate is in place it mimics the light of a large beauty dish, adding versatility to your lighting options. To tie this kit together, an 8' light stand is included to hold your octa box and speedlight in place.
Robust and Durable
The Rapid Box's poles and speed ring are constructed from solid aluminum to minimize weight yet retain durability.
Octa boxes produce round catchlights in the subject's eyes, which appear more natural than square or rectangular catchlights.
Quick Setup and Tear Down
The Rapid Box opens and closes like an umbrella, no support rods or adapter ring needed.
Sleek and Compact
With a shallow depth, the Rapid Box works in virtually any lighting situation.
Soft Even Lighting
A screw-in reflector plate will minimize any hot spots, and the front diffusion material further diffuses the light for softer portrait light.
Fully Adjustable Stand Bracket
The height and depth are adjustable and compatible with virtually all shoe-mounted flashes, except Sony speedlights.
Utilize Your Speedlight Without the Need for Radio Triggers
External speedlight placement allows firing via built-in slaves and/or IR line-of-site.
