  • Westcott Recessed Mega JS Apollo (50 x 50")

    The Westcott Recessed Mega JS Apollo (50 x 50") is a softbox based on an umbrella frame. It needs no speed ring to attach it to a studio flash head. Simply open it, and slide the shaft into the umbrella receptor on the flash head. You can also use the Mega JS Apollo with your on-camera flash by purchasing Westcott's 5015 Shoe Mount Bracket (BH# WESMMA).

    Perfect Paired
    The convenience of an umbrella meets the control of a softbox. Built on an umbrella frame, the Apollo light modifiers set up in seconds.
    Perfect on Location
    No additional parts and pieces to lug around as these units simply open up just like an umbrella and set up in seconds making them perfect for any on-location photographer.
    No Adapter Ring Required
    Most softboxes require expensive and heavy adapter rings to properly set up. Built on an umbrella frame, these units simply pop open like an umbrella and fit into the umbrella receptacle found on virtually all style "studio" lights.
    Perfectly Paired with Speedlights
    The Apollo light modifier is a perfect pair with speedlights offering soft box control with the set up ease of an umbrella. An optional 5015 Shoe Mount bracket is required to mount the speedlights and Apollo onto a light stand with full tilting capability.
    104 Degree Light Spread
    The larger the light source, the softer the light. That is certainly the case with this extra-large 50" JS Apollo. Perfect for portraits and couples, this unit also offers a recessed edge allow better control of light.
    Pure Color
    Fabrics are pure in color so the color temperature going into the fabric is the same color temperature coming back out.
    Recessed Edge
    The large recessed edge provides even greater light control allowing feathering of light to see exactly where the light is starting and stopping.

  • Westcott Apollo Strip 16 x 30" (40.6 x 76.2 cm)

    The narrow profile of Wescott's 16 x 30" Apollo Strip makes it an ideal rim, hair light or accent light. The recessed front edge of the box provides a degree of directionality while the output remains soft and flattering. 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.

  • 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.

    Measures 7.25' (2.2 m) in diameter
    White diffusion material allows you to use the umbrella in standard bounce mode or shoot through it like a large soft box
    Constructed using 16 durable fiberglass ribs
    Double wall shaft is engineered with double the thickness of most umbrellas
    7 mm tapered umbrella shaft tip
    Carry case with shoulder strap is lightweight and constructed of heavy-duty nylon

  • 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
