Westcott 2036 overview

  • 1Description

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.

  • Rapid Box - 26" Octa Softbox

    The Westcott Rapid Box - 26" Octa Softbox lives up to its name by providing a soft quality of light for your shoe-mount flash and by 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 1.0 stop diffusion front face is removable revealing a highly reflective, high-output silver interior. You can soften the light further and defeat hotspots with the separate purchase of the optional 2030-DP Deflector Plate (BH # WE2030DP).

    Robust and Durable
    The Rapid Box's poles and speed ring are constructed from solid aluminum to minimize weight yet retain durability.
    Quick Setup and Tear Down
    The Rapid Box opens and closes like an umbrella. No support rods or adapter ring needed. Everything is compact and easy to use.
    Sleek and Compact
    With a shallow depth, the Rapid Box works in virtually any lighting situation. No matter which box you choose. The Rapid Box series is always compact.
    Soft Even Lighting
    A screw-in reflector plate will minimize any hot spot. The front diffusion material is the same quality as found on Westcott's current high-quality soft boxes.
    Fully Adjustable Stand Bracket
    The height and depth are adjustable and compatible with virtually all shoe-mounted flashes.
    Utilize Your Speedlite Without the Need for Radio Triggers
    External speedlight placement allows firing via built-in slaves and/or IR line-of-site.
    Carry Case Included
    Durable carry case with shoulder strap is included for simple transportation and storage.

  • Rapid Box Strip - 10x24"

    The Westcott Rapid Box Strip lives up to its name by providing a soft quality of light for your shoe-mount flash that sets up and breaks down in a fraction of the time as most competitors. The 10 x 24" narrow rectangular shape 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 stand mount/shoe mount/speed ring combo that disengages quickly from the box allowing it to close like an umbrella.

    The 1.0 stop diffusion front face is removable revealing a highly reflective, high-output silver interior. You can soften the light further and defeat hotspots with the separate purchase of the optional 2030-DP Deflector Plate (BH # WE2030DP).

    Robust and Durable

Westcott 2036 reviews

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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Nice Kit; Minor Quality Control Issues Functionally, I think this is a pretty good kit, but I have only used it once so far, so my experience with it is not vast. But the first set of portrait photos came out very nicely, and I assume they will only get better as I gain some more familiarity with how best to use these softboxes. The set up is pretty easy and fast, but no instructions were included so I needed to go to the Westcott website to figure some things out. As far as I can tell, there are no set up instructions for this kit per se. (Deduct 1 point.) One of the softboxes had not been correctly assembled and it was askew on the mounting ring. (Deduct 1 point) Westcott support was very responsive, however, and after I sent them photos of the problem, they told me how I could quickly and easily fix the problem (Add 1 point). Lastly, one of the flash mounts arrived with a broken retaining screw. (Deduct 1 point) I am asking Westcott to send a replacement screw. Notwithstanding these minor glitches, I am pretty convinced that this purchase was very good value for the money.

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.
