Westcott Rapid Box overview

  • 1Description

The 24" Rapid Box Beauty Dish from Westcott is a versatile and portable light modifier featuring a built-in speed ring for Bowens flash heads. This modifier blends a deep parabolic shape with a beauty dish design to produce a soft, yet crisp quality of light; well-suited to striking and dynamic portraiture. The removable deflector helps to prevent hot spots and a one-stop diffusion panel is also included to further soften the overall light output. The white interior produces clean, natural colors and the soft material is heat-rated for strobes and continuous monolights up to 650W. Distinguishing this Rapid Box from other light modifiers is its unique collapsible design that makes it easy to carry when stored in the included soft travel case.

    Westcott Rapid Box reviews

    Rapid Box Beauty Dish (24", for Bowens) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It dishes it out! Now I have to sell my Mola dish! I absolutely love the portability and quick set up. The output seems to be a stop hotter than the Mola Demi (similar size). The color is great (just like Mola). But you have to be careful that the bare light doesn't go strait to the subject. What I mean is that if your flash tube doesn't reaches in deep enough, there's a chance that some direct light can be seen. This is the case if you use it without the sock. I think using the sock negates the point of using a dish. The sock just makes it into a smallish round soft box... but anyways, it's a quality dish, that looks good, that's function well. But keep in mind about the depth of your flash tube.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful light and super easy to setup While I feel it should be priced lower, you cannot deny the quality of this Beauty Dish. Produces beautiful soft yet punchy light and it is extremely easy to setup and take down. Folds very compact into its carry case. Hard to argue when this gives such amazing results!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color temp issue. I am debating whether to return this. I need to test it further. I notice that when I add this to my Godox 600pro the color temp increases (cools) by about 650k, as per my Sekonic C-700 meter. Same result on all 3 of my heads. There is a possibility the Godox (which is a new purchase for me, too) has insufficient UV filtration on the tube and is thus exciting stuff in the fabric not usually seen. I will test it shortly with my old Dynalite heads, a known entity for me with adequate UV coatings on the tubes. I have the same phenomena with 2 large Photoflex boxes, though all 6 of my other Photoflex boxes have no color shift. Either way, the fabrics used should not alter color temp that drastically, even if it is UV induced.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST! I can not say enough!!! I looked for a light modifier for my Phottix Indra 500 light. I wanted something light weight and small enough to use outdoors. I wanted something that was not too large and could resist wind. Well, after trying several options, THIS IS THE ONE! Very well made, strong, and a great size for outdoor use. The Bowens mount fits my Phottix Indra 500 perfectly, and I could not be happier with this outdoor set up. Of course you could use it indoors too, but this is my new travel rig! You should GET THIS!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far okay...but, Have used this twice, got totally different results. It's very easy to set up and break down and is very light weight. Another pro is that outside, it's not as much of a kite as my 46' Octobox. Con, not sure about shooting more than 1 or 2 people with this at the same time and the cost, this box would be a better value around $150 price point. If you have the money and you're a gear head like me, slide your card and buy it, but there are other options for a lot less that will do about the same thing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too good! This was an impulsive purchase and I have zero regrets. The quality of the light was so good it inspired me to work more and harder then ever before. The quality is very decent, and the portability allows me to bring this BD to the weddings. I also got grid for this amazing tool. Worth it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Reall well made. It feels solid and when the dish is opened up it snaps into place in a very secure and satisfying way. I have one gripe and it's very minor. The diffusion fabric is velcro. Its a bit of a pain to put on. If i was in a hurry it might take 20 seconds to afix to the front of the dish (I told you it was a minor gripe). I would much prefer a elastic sock that can be fitted over the front of the dish in less than 3 or 4 seconds. But maybe there was a reason why wescott opted for velcro?
