    Comments about Westcott Rapid Box Octa XL for Profoto (36"):

    I use this Westcott Octa XL for my senior portrait and headshot work. It's a beautifully soft light used with my Profoto B1. It sets up in just seconds compared to the Profoto Octa, where you have to insert the rods. It's quick and easy to use.

        Comments about Westcott Rapid Box Octa XL for Profoto (36"):

        this is a versatile piece of equipment, I use it when i need to set up my light really quick, or when I have limited space to work, also great for travel instead of carrying a beauty dish.

        I like the umbrella style design, it could be much much better if comes with the optional diffusion plate to convert it a beauty dish (which I've also got anyway) . I like the stuff Westcott is designing very much.

          Beautiful light. Easy Setup. Easy for my assistant to carry. Never had a better option for on location sessions. Very secure on my Profoto B1's.
