      Comments about Profoto 5.0' RFi Octa Softbox:

      As expected of Profoto, their line of RDi softboxes are exceptional in both build and quality. The material is stiff and firm assuring me this will last years on end indoors and out. The only upgrade I might add is a tube in where the poles go to reach the other end and a quicker release system as other softboxes have. Other than that, you certainly won't be disappointed in your investment.

        Comments about Profoto 5.0' RFi Octa Softbox:

        It feels just as sturdy as the top line profoto 5' octa. We'll see in the long run.
        I almost sent it back at firsrt, wondering why 2 of the velcros in the back were not closing. I check around the rods, and they were all the way in the octa, but two of them were actually 1/4in off out of the speedring. Pushing harder all the way in made the trick. It's really precisely built.

            Comments about Profoto 5.0' RFi Octa Softbox:

            I use the 5' octa for headshots to small families and asa window type source for product work. The profoto 5' octa is well built and produces a beautiful
            light quality.
            The materials are top notch and the light quality is equal to the predecessor, at a significant savings. Difficult to tell a difference in quality of build and light between the two.
            Until Profoto with a well built collapsable, this unit will serve me well.
