The Luxbanx Extra-Small Deep Octagonal Softbox from Impact is a highly versatile tool for strobes, LEDs, and fluorescents. This extra-small 18" diameter softbox allows photographers to pinpoint a light source to separate a subject from the background and is well suited for controlling light placement for close-up head and shoulder poirtraits while retaining the wrap-around light and circular catchlights created by larger octaboxes. Also, this model utilizes a 12" deep parabolic design that provides a long throw and directionality that is great for portraits and minimizes light spill. The softbox features a soft white interior, removable front diffuser and removable inner baffle. The diffuser and baffle can be used together for maximum softening of the output. Removing the inner baffle will give you a more crisp light quality with higher contrast, while shedding the front and inner diffusers turns the Luxbanx into a large reflector with maximum brightness and contrast.

The octa Luxbanx has an additional control via the optional fabric grid which mounts to the recessed lip of the softbox with touch-fasteners. The grid narrows and concentrates the light's beam forward, controlling spill and adding directional control to the Luxbanx's attributes. The large surface area of this octagonal-shaped softbox gives you a unique wrap-around quality of light that gains emphasis as you move it closer. Catchlights in the eyes of your subject are round and natural. Every Luxbanx comes with a carrying case and a spare Flex Rod. Separate purchase of a speed ring that matches your strobe's mount is required for use. Impact makes models to fit most popular brands.

    Luxbanx Extra-Small Deep Octagonal Softbox (18") is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as key light for executive portraits & head shots Small 18 inch diameter makes it easy to position to eliminate harsh highlights. . .aka GLARE on glasses and eyewear. In a studio style environment, used in conjunction with a top light or sidelight and background head . . .it supports creating an easily controlled lighting environment, where you can create the look and style that you like. The 18 in Luxbanx Extra-Small Deep Octagonal Softbox has a nice wraparound effect and since it does have an interior baffle .. it can used in close proximity to the subject if desired. The catch light in the eyes look round . . . . No more square soft boxes as the key light. It's also small and easy to transport . . .as all of my work is on location.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made! Really well made and compact octa box. It comes in a carry case. Pretty simple to put together, and very strong and rigid when assembled, but be aware, this item does not come with a speedring! I believe it tells you that, but you need to get one otherwise it's useless. I bought the impact bowens speedring for about $45, no problems what so ever. It does take some muscle power to assemble. My advice it to make an X pattern which will make a square then make another X and the octa box forms, it's very rigid and well made. Performs well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This thing awesome! I really like the light quality this octobox gives off. I like that's it's small and easy to maneuver and transport to on-location shoots. It's really great for headshots and in place of a beauty dish. I actually like the light it gives off better than a beauty dish. It's light weight as well. I gave it 4 stars because I'd really like to see impact make some of these octoboxes like the rapidboxes are. Fold down and pop out like an umbrella would make these so much more awesome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I really love this little soft box. It's great for focusing beautiful light in outdoor portraits. It's the perfect match for my Impact LiteTrek strobe on location. Beautiful, soft yet punchy light. Great indoors and outdoors when you want to control the spill of light on backgrounds or if you want all the light from your strobe to get to your subject. Much more useful than I thought a soft box of this size would be. Well done Impact! Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light Source In a Small Package I've been using this with the IMSRSHOED and getting fantastic results. Putting two flashes in gives the max power gain vs cost ration and the dual diffuser of this unit really make for an excellent off camera main light. The grid is a bargain as well and helps to focus the light and prevent spill without making the light harsh. Mine has been living in my trunk inbetween shoots and has lasted which is more than i can say for some other more expensive mods i have used...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact SoftBox This Soft Box is an incredible tool for working in the field. Because of its small design it can fit in any bag without taking up space. Then open it up to get 18 of even lighting. And when used portably, it can give a very soft concentrated light pattern on your subject. Easy open and close also aids in making this the go to accessory to your portable lighting rigs.
