The Rapid Box 2 Light Kit with Deflector Plate from Westcott is a wise choice for everything from products to portraiture. The kit contains a 26" Rapid Box Octa, 10 x 24" Rapid Box Strip, Beauty Dish Deflector Plate, two 8' light stands and a gear bag.

The 26" Rapid Box Octa lives up to its name by providing a soft quality of light for your shoe-mount flash while setting up and breaking down in a fraction of the time as most competitors. The box comes complete with a tilting 5/8" receiver stand mount/shoe mount/speed ring combo that disengages quickly from the box allowing it to close like an umbrella. The included deflector allows you to take the inner and front diffusers off and use the Octa like an open face beauty dish.

The 10 x 24" narrow, rectangular 10 x 24" Rapid Box Strip lends itself to use as a hairlight, backlight or rim light to separate the subject from the background. The long shape also creates elegant highlights on glassware and other reflective objects. The box comes complete with a tilting 5/8" receiver. The kit is rounded out by two 8' light stands and a gear bag to hold it all.

Rapid Box 2 Light Kit with Deflector Plate is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing but good things to say I am a photographer that specializes in editorial, commercial, and wedding photojournalism. I work on location and typically I'm there to capture my clients work, working, or getting married. Time and space is typically limited. Speedlites are a must for my line of work. I need something quick, small, and dependable. These soft boxes are ideal for my line of work. I'm able to get in, set up very quickly, take up minimal space, and get the lighting dialed in for the shots I need. PROS; Very quick to setup Quality material and construction Lightweight Produces beautiful light Breaks down quickly CONS: None for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from terrible light stands The boxes themselves are great for softening light; I love how fast they are to set up and take back down, however, the lightstands are atrocious, and by far the worst I've ever owned. One fell apart (the screw holding one of the legs came off) the first time I used it, and one of the knobs to fell off as well. The next use, the other light stand started dropping parts and I had to cannibalize the first one to keep the second one together. After 3 uses, neither lightstand is usable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow... am I impressed! Just received my Westcott Rapid Box 2 Light Kit today. I couldn't believe the build quality, and how easy it is to put everything together. The padded carrying bag holds everything (including the light stands), with velcro belts to hold each separate light bag, so nothing moves around. I also found a sticker on the Beauty Dish Defector, that shows you which side goes towards the speedlight. Can't wait to test everything out on a photo shoot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Location Light Kit I gave this 5 stars cause I can't give 4.5 stars. This system is a well put together piece of kit. The stands are average but work very well with the 26 octa and small strip box. The 26 Octa provides an unbelievable soft even light when used with the middle deflector and outside diffuser. I can't say enough about it. I have not used it in any other way - so I can't say how it is but i'm thinking sort of like a portable beauty dish without the diffuser cover. The bracket is genius and works and carries well. The little strip box is perfect for a hair light, or a slick paramount lighting set up and of course for a 2 light portrait shot. I wish the middle deflector stored while attached which is why it gets 4.5 stars. Speaking of the case....each softbox comes in a nice easy to carry case but they all fit inside the larger carry-all which zips up nice and holds both softboxes and the stands. All in all a great set up for on the go shooters who want that soft even light that blends so well with a nice ambient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm very impressed! I was using an older soft-box for my portrait photography, and saw a review on the Rapid Box 2 Light Kit. I broke down and spent the money to purchase this equipment... and I'm so glad I did! Easy and quick setup, awesome light (especially with the deflector plate that came with this kit), and the carrying case is padded and cary's everything (including the light stands). This is a no brainer. Get it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shoot better portraits This is a handy, self-contained kit for producing more flattering, softer light for portraits with your speedlights. The Rapid Box Octa makes a very nice, soft main light and with the deflector makes a nice beauty dish. The Strip box gives a nice fill, rim, hair light and can also be used with the deflector. It all fits into one handy package with 2 light stands and 2 umbrella-style brackets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible, Portable, Reliable Lighting Kit I've been using Photoflex 2x3 softboxes for the past seven years. I've traveled so often with these that the inner reflective lining has mostly peeled off. I wanted something lighter and stronger to replace with that kit I purchased more than seven years ago. It takes less than 2 minutes to setup each of the lights. And it takes less time than that to break each down. The kit packs nicely into the included carrying case. With my camera backpack and this kit, I'm a legit mobile studio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Speedlite kit! It comes all ready to go. Case,2 Stands, all hardware and of course the 2 modifiers. The stands are decent and will hold the softboxes, i would not try to load up more than that. I found the stands to be a little sticky to open and close, but i guess you have to break them in a bit to smooth it out. I used it on a portrait shoot and it worked great. like i said grab and go is what this is for and the case is very nice and holds it all and you can put in extra clips and such.
