B&H has put together this Luxbanx Octa Softbox and Grid Kit to give image-makers a lighting solution with a flattering look, manageable contrast, and directional control.
The Luxbanx Compact Octagonal Softbox is a highly versatile tool for strobes, LEDs, and fluorescents. The large surface area of this 24" 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. The Octa 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.
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
The Octa Luxbanx has an additional control via the fabric grid, which mounts to the recessed lip of the softbox with touch-fasteners. The 40-degree grid narrows the beam spread from your softbox to control spill light and add directionality similar to a reflector, while maintaining a soft quality of light. Unlike unwieldy rigid grids, Impact fabric grids are extremely lightweight and fold flat for transport in the included carry case.
