The 24 x 36" Parabox Softbox from Impact features a durable dual-rod umbrella-type construction that dramatically shortens setup and takedown time. Compatible with hot-shoe flash speedlights, compact studio strobes or portable battery-powered strobe systems, the Parabox features zippered panels on the long and short side of the softbox for your flash head to offer the option of vertical or horizontal orientation. The softbox's 8mm shaft fits any standard umbrella mount or stand adapters with an umbrella receiver.

At 24 x 36" the Impact Parabox is a great match for hotshoe flashes, compact studio strobes and portable battery-powered strobe systems
Easy Setup and Takedown
Photographers on the go will appreciate the Parabox's rugged dual-rod design, which contributes to a quick and easy setup. This is ideal for wedding and event photography, on-location portrait shoots, or any situation where time is limited and professional results are expected
No Speed Ring Required
The Parabox Softbox features an 8mm umbrella shaft, making it compatible with any standard umbrella mount or adapter. Since a speed ring is not required, the Parabox is a good value for beginner photographers and professionals alike
Two zippered panels allow for vertical (portrait) and horizontal (landscape) positioning, while the reflective silver interior, removable front diffuser, and compatibility with touch-fastener grids offer additional light modification opportunities. Use as a rim light, hair light, accent light, or as a main light

    Impact PBSB-2436 reviews

    Parabox Softbox (24 x 36") is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy umbrella opening style. Limited downward tilt angle. The soft box is a snap to set up, easy as an umbrella. Not sure how durable that makes it for heavy use, but it seems like it will be fine for the enthusiast. Got mine as part of a kit with 10' stand, triple speedlight holder, and umbrella bracket for the regular price of just the softbox so it was definitely a bargain. Not thrilled with how it spreads 3 speedlight (not too even) but it should be fine with just 2 along the long axis. As other reviews state, you can't tilt it down more than a few degrees. I put it on a boom, so no problem tilting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Soft Light Just starting to use it. Nice soft light. The only drawback I have found is it does not tilt forward. Would like to be able to feather up and down as well as side to side.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Product I got these boxes in a kit from B&H, all very good quality products at a good price. The boxes are sturdy and look like they will be good for years of enthusiast use. They are big enough to give wonderful light. I haven't used top flight boxes before but these seem to be an excellent product for build and function.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Convenient if You Set Your Flash Correctly Right Away If you already know the settings for your flash, this is a good value with easy setup and decent design. However, if you have to get back to the flash unit, the velcro closures on the panels make it difficult to do so quickly.
