Westcott Rapid Box Switch Octa-S Softbox (26")

As the name "Switch" hints, Westcott has introduced a line of softboxes designed for setup and rapid swapping out of different brands of strobes and speedlights in seconds. The 26" Rapid Box Switch Octa-S Softbox is a good choice for use in the studio or on location for portraits, fashion, or corporate work. The large surface area of the softbox gives its output a wraparound quality especially when used close up. Another benefit is the reflection of natural-looking catchlights in your subject's eyes. As indicated in the name, the softbox has a basic ring to hold it together, but instead of full speed rings, 13 "inserts" are available and are required for a speedlight or specific brand of strobe. The quick release thumb-lock on the Rapid Box Switch ensures the security of your light. Besides the benefit of speed, the softbox is structurally sound with durable metal framework, heat-resistant fabric, and a reflective silver interior that maximizes your light source's output. The Rapid Box Switch Octa's diffusion material has also been thoroughly tested and found to be neutral, ensuring a true rendition of color. A carry case is included for storage and transport.

Is the sb700 going to be enough for this softbox? ...

Is the sb700 going to be enough for this softbox? Can the Godox Ad200 be mounted on it? Or another monolight/strobe with more HSS and power than the sb700? Can the Godox V1 be mounted on this softbox? Any other ideas? I do not know if the sb5000 is worth the $. Thank you!
Asked by: ab
Yes this rapid box is perfect for a sb700. If you want to use a variety of other flashes, we recommend the rapid box switch which allows you to change your light mount.

How can I use my my speedlight with Tapid Box26 ...

How can I use my my speedlight with Tapid Box26 Octabox with my Elinchrom RQ One? I use EL- Skuport Transmitter Plus to fire my RX One.
Asked by: Marija
If you are trying to use an Elinchrom unit with the Rapid Box, We recommend the Rapid Box Switch. This is a system that allows you to switch the strobe mount, and keep the same softbox. This is great for photographers that have a variety of lights, or want a softbox that they can use when they change light systems.
