    Litepanels Snapbag Reviews

    DoPchoice Snapbag Softbox for Astra 1x1 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 8+ Used Rating, more like 6+ The case that enclosed this item was scratched and obviously thrown around, the inside wasnt all that great either.  The foam inside was cut and ripped out of place, and there were a few scratches on the back of the lights which lead me to believe that theyve been dropped by their previous owners.  One of the stands was broken, so I ended up having to purchase an additional light stand to replace the broken one.  Overall, I dont think this item was priced appropriately for the condition it was in.  Ive been dedicated to B&H to purchase all my cameras and most of my equipment, but I think Ill likely be finding another supplier for my business needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great! I was going to buy the cheaper versions of these, but I decided since I spent so much on the lights, I better buy the ones LitePanels uses. I'm glad I did. These work great, are easy to setup and are very compact when transporting. Be sure to read the instructions when putting them on and taking them off, since there is a tiny learning curve. Otherwise, these are great and are definitely worth the extra money to spend on them.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit correctly on the Astra Bi-Color Soft I purchased this with my 1x1 astra soft bi-color lights and it doesn't fit correctly around the housing of the light. The elastic on the side allow it to be used, however there is a light gap on top and it is kinda wonky.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Chimera when used with Astra I now have 4 Astras, 2 with the Chimera universal LED Lightbank and 2 with the LitePanels Snapbag. Here are the differences...1) The Chimera blocks the Astra's side vents unless you prop the sides of the Chimera over the knobs (kind of a pain). The Snapbag does not block the vents at all. 2) The Chimera uses an opaque plastic faceplate to maintain the soft box's shape. Unless diffused, the light can add a sheen to on-camera talent. The Snapbag has a metal frame and uses a cloth faceplate available in 3 different densities. Faceplates on both units are attached with velcro. 3) The Chimera is lighter weight and less expensive than the Snapbag. 4) A 50 degree grid is available for the Chimera. A 40 degree grid is available for the Snapbag. Bottom can get pretty much the same look from both soft boxes, but you'll work a lot harder to get it with the Chimera. For the LitePanels Astra, the Snapbag is the better choice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy fast setup This is exactly what I was looking for. I'd been disappointed with the look of my first generation bare LP 1x1. Having used Chimeras on my open source lights for years I was longing for a soft box specifically designed for a 1x1 panel. The Snapbag is easy and quick to deploy. I opted to get a set of Astras instead of the Astra Soft and augment the fixtures with the Snapbags. I think this combo gives the most flexibility because you get all the power of the regular Astra but can soften it with the Sandbag. I have not been able to thoroughly evaluate the characteristics of the light coming out of the Sandbag but my first time using them produced nice results. Overall very happy with the purchase.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from For the money, it is lame They look like they should work well, but they are hard to get on, barely hang on, and are way over priced for what they are. I got one test drive. For shaping and controlling the light it works well. But in terms of getting the thing on and off, Id rather get the cheap ones that just sort of hang on. I have another set astras, and that is what I am getting for them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have accessory for Astra 1X1 I finally broke down and got these after fixing 216 with gaf to my Astras. I don't know why I waited- These soft boxes are a snap to put on, really! They soften and shape the output of the Astra perfectly! The combination of a 1x1 and this soft box makes arguably the most important lighting tool on the market today!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality! Purchased two of these along with the Astra’s and they work great! I’ve used Chimera’s for a couple of decades with various lights and love them, too. But, I find that these set up as fast and are of the same quality as the Chimera’s. The first time using them, it did take a bit to get them situated correctly. But now, I can attach them in less than 30 seconds (not counting the front defusion). I like the fact that you don’t need a speed ring, and they fold up fast. They are worth the extra money and will last as long as anything else out there.

    Can this be fitted to an original litepanels 1x1?
    Asked by: Erin
    Hi Erin - I was a bit too quick on the above reply - the Snapbag Softbox is designed to fit the Astra 1x1, but it actually does fit the original Litepanels 1x1 as well. Sorry for the confusion.

    Does anyone know if this fits other 1x1 panels? I've got a flolight 1024 and I know there is a Chimera softbox made for it; but its reviews are pretty hit or miss. Anyone used the the snapbag for these?
