Westcott Apollo Strip Softbox (16 x 30")

The narrow profile of Wescott's 16 x 30" Apollo Strip Softbox makes it an ideal rim, hair light or accent light. The recessed front edge of the box provides a degree of directionality that can be intensified with the included 40-degree fabric grid, which narrows the beam spread while eliminating spill light.

The output remains soft and flattering with the type of control you'd normally get from a reflector. Alternatively, if you need a harder light simply remove the front diffuser. Since the Apollo Strip is built on an umbrella frame, it provides for quick setup and equally quick break-down. The Apollo Strip mounts vertically or horizontally to suit your subject.

Narrow Profile

The Apollo Strip was designed with a narrow 16 x 30" profile. This modifier is an ideal hair light or rim light, allowing you to focus your light source on a defined area. For even further light control, pair this modifier with the included fabric grid.

Dual Stand Mounting Options

Equipped with the Latest Technology

Premium Diffusion Fabric

Westcott diffusion panels are constructed with a premium, all-natural unbleached nylon fabric. Unlike processed diffusion fabrics, these diffusers will soften your light source without altering its color temperature.

Direct and Soften Light

By directing your light source toward the Apollo's included front diffuser, you'll create highlights with a subtle hot spot. By directing your unit towards the back of Apollo, you'll create an even spread of light with softer shadows.

Maximize Output

Apollo softboxes are manufactured with a highly-reflective silver interior for optimized light output.

Uncompromising Light Control

The included fabric grids are made up of cells that control off-axis light in 4 directions while still maintaining the soft quality you want from a large light source. By focusing light through a grid, you eliminate both light spill and lens flare simultaneously for precise illumination.

The Hair Light Perfected with Grids

By allowing you to precisely focus your light source on a defined area, grids are the essential accessory for your hair light or rim light. When modified with a grid and softbox, your light can illuminate your subject from behind without light spilling onto your backdrop to gain dimension and depth in your portraiture.

The Science Behind the 40-Degree Grid

A 40-degree grid is the most popular choice for photographers and filmmakers, allowing for precise light control with limited loss of light. Light loss at the center axis is minimal, even at a distance 3 to 4 times the diagonal of the softbox. This typically results in losing less than 1/4-stop.

Instant Placement

Westcott's 40-degree grids easily attaches to the front of the Apollo Strip with strong touch-fastener material thanks to the softbox's recessed edge. giving you the ability to use your diffusion panel and 40-degree grid simultaneously.

Ideal for Travel

The soft, compact grid collapses down instantly for streamlined travel and storage in its included bag.

Westcott 7' Umbrella (White Diffusion)

Photography discussions are full of desert island scenarios; "if you had to choose a single lens or if you had to choose a single light..." Well if you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the white diffusion Westcott 7' White Diffusion Umbrella.

First of all it's a really big, broad light source that wraps light around your subject yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. But due to the special shape of the umbrella there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors. This umbrella has a unique design structurally as well. The shaft is double walled for strength, but it tapers to 7mm to fit Elinchrom and other European flash heads. Instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass.

This white diffusion is the softest version of the umbrella. Used in standard bounce mode, some of the light escapes through the material, slightly raising the ambient light level and lowering contrast while most of it is directed towards your subject. If you want a harder light, turn the umbrella around and aim the convex side at your subject and punch your light source through it. In both modes you can vary the light quality and output by changing the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft.

You can also use this umbrella as a scrim over your subject to diffuse harsh light sources like the sun in situations like fashion catalog work outdoors or at the beach. Any way you use it, with the Westcott 7' Umbrella less is definitely more.

Westcott 40° Fabric Grid for the Apollo Strip

This is a Westcott 40° Fabric Grid for the Apollo Strip. This grid narrows the beam spread from your Apollo softbox to control spill light, soften contrast, and add directionality to this soft source. It attaches to the recessed front through the use of hook-and-loop tape. A grid is an essential accessory for any lighting system.

Create Separation and Depth

Grids are made up of cells that control off axis light in four directions while maintaining the soft quality inherent in a large light source. Use as a portrait source to keep light off your background. Or use the grid's control qualities to turn the orb into a large hairlight for groups. You can even clip gels to it.

Eliminates Spill and Flare

As light is focused into a forward direction through use of a grid, it can help to eliminate spill light or lens flare

40° Spread of Light

The off axis portion of the light is controlled by the cell size. The cell size (measured in degrees) describes the maximum cutoff angle of the off axis light. A 40-degree grid is the most popular degree used

Light Loss

Light loss at the center axis is minimal at a distance of up to 3 to 4 times the diagonal dimension of the light source. On most models it is less than a 1/4 of stop of light

Perfect for Travel

Soft grids collapse down for easy transport and travel

Included Travel Case

Each unit comes with a soft nylon carry case

Easy Attachment

Grids easily attach through the use of hook-and-loop tape. When attaching, place your diffusion panel about 1/2 way in on the hook tape. This will leave enough room for the eggcrate to attach directly in front of the diffusion panel

Perfect Fit

Grid corners are left unattached in order to provide the perfect fit. This allows you to stretch the grid taught and avoid sagging or drooping
