The softbox is made from SL-Tech fabric, allowing it to be lightweight while remaining strong and durable. This material is heat-resistant as well, and will hold up to long-term use with most strobes and flashes. The rear of the softbox can be opened up, allowing shooters to more quickly vent heat or more easily adjust other modifiers, such as gels.

question

What angle does the grid produce, and what are the grid's dimensions (depth? spacing between strips?) and construction (it it all fabric, or partly paper-like)?
Asked by: Jonathan
Hi,The grid will concentrate the light down and will prevent less spill from happening. There is no published number and cannot provide an exact number of angle of view the grid produces. Most grids do not have an angle of view because they can vary in depth. The grid squares are very close to 3x3 per square. Light loss is roughly 2/10ths of a stop (0.2) when the grid is used on its own. 1.7 stops when both diffusers and the grids are in place.The grid is included with the purchase of the Solas and is a fabric grid.I hope this helps.Regards,Will H
