The Raya Octa Fluorescent 7-Socket Fixture 2-Light Softbox Kit was put together by B&H to provide a soft, multiuse, continuous lighting setup with enough power and coverage for single subjects as well as large groups and sets. The kit is comprised of two 7-socket fixtures with 32W spiral fluorescent lamps, two 27" Octa softboxes, and an air-cushioned 9.5" light stand for each light.
The two Octa 7-socket units have dual rocker switches on their back panels, each of which controls on/off function for three or four lamps allowing the creation of a light ratio. The Octas have multi-voltage power supplies for worldwide use (with optional adapter plug) and a standard 5/8" receiver for light stands and accessories.
The included 32" softboxes feature highly reflective, pebbled interiors and removable front faces that attach with simple touch fasteners. They also have detachable interior clip-on diffusers for softer light if desired. In use, the Octas render the signature wraparound look that the modifiers' shape is well known for, as well as natural circular catchlights in your subject's eyes. The light sources are supported by the included air-cushioned stands that gently lower the lights, preventing damage to the fixture when adjusting their height.
