The octagonal BoomBox for Shoe-Mount Flashes from Angler measures 26" and is an easy way to maximize the potential of your speedlite. The BoomBox has an umbrella-like action that permits setup and breakdown in seconds. Sturdily constructed, the softbox employs an integrated aluminum speed ring and support rods that are attached to the umbrella mechanism to keep the softbox taut.

One of the most valuable features of the BoomBox is its removable internal deflector which disperses the light toward the outer part of the softbox, defeating hot spots and enabling even output from edge to edge, with a quality of light reminiscent of a beauty dish. Yet another asset is the BoomBox's reflective silver interior which maximizes your speedlite's output. The softbox has an industry-standard 5/8" receiver for light stands, and an adjustable bracket that allows precise centering of your flash. Angler includes a carry bag for storage and transport.

BoomBox 130mm ring inserts that are compatible with Profoto, Elinchrom, and Broncolor lights are available separately. 144mm adapter rings are not compatible with this product.

Opens Like an Umbrella

Deflector Plate
The removable deflector directs the light toward the outer edges of the softbox, defeating hot spots and providing a quality of light similar to a beauty dish.
Adjustable Mount

Sturdy Construction
The BoomBox features an aluminum speed ring and support rods that are attached to the umbrella mechanism for a taut fabric fit when its open.
Silver Interior and Soft Diffuser
The silver interior maximizes the output of your speedlite, while the included diffuser is available to modify contrast when desired.

Nice handy size

This is a nice small diffuser that pops open and closes easily. It stores in the provided soft case for convenient transport.

Affordable and Portable

Very good bang for the buck. Made well and easy to use. Holds my speed lite with no problems. Sets up quickly and repacks easily. The protective carry case is better than more expensive models. I am very satisfied.

Flimsy and doesn't hold my.flash well. Lost my flash in the woods as a result. Don't buy

Not bad at all for its price point.

This is actually a decent made soft box. I wasn't wanting to spend a fortune on something that I will use occasionally. It's small enough to be portable. Construction seems adequate and it works well with my remote flash units. Definitely would buy this again without hesitation.

Good for outdoor photography

The product worked as advertised. Easy to put together and provides decent diffusion of speedlight flash. I used this for some outdoor photos of the family and the results were good. I would have given it 5 stars, but you probably don't want to setup and disassemble as you walk from one location to another. It is just cumbersome enough that you don't want to repeat the setup process every time you need a photo. The price is good overall.

I purchased this item because I would used it with my FJ80 from Westcott. Unfortunately It doesn't fit with the FJ80 head so I sell it. This softbox was light and practical but I didn't have the chance to used it.

So far so good!

Used it over three days and really like it. Specially that I can access the flash from the back.

Does anyone know if this grid will fit on the Westcott? The Westcott doesn't have velcro on the interior and relies on diffuser fabric to fit like a cap on the exterior of the Octa.

I recently purchased the Westcott rapid box 26” to use with my AD200 however the deflector plate touches the bulb attachment of the AD200. Wondering if the distance is the same with the Angler BoomBox? It looks like a very similar design to the Rapid Box, but much cheaper.
Asked by: Hugh
The frame of the Angler has a similar depth to the Westcott RapidBox. It will not work with the AD200 with its supplied hardware.

Hi Photo makers! Is there a bowens adaptor for this? Can't find one on B&H...Thank you!!
Asked by: Brandon
This version of the Boom-Box is strictly for shoe mount flashes. There are no Bowens adapters which can be added to it. The version with a Bowens S mount is the Angler BoomBox Octagonal Softbox with Bowens Mount (36"), B&H # ANBB36DB. https://bhpho.to/2sK0UZw
