Westcott 2521 overview

  • 1Description

As the name "Switch" hints, Westcott has introduced a line of softboxes designed for setup and rapid swapping out of different brands of strobes and speedlights in seconds. The 26" Rapid Box Switch Octa-S Softbox is a good choice for use in the studio or on location for portraits, fashion, or corporate work. The large surface area of the softbox gives its output a wraparound quality especially when used close up. Another benefit is the reflection of natural-looking catchlights in your subject's eyes. As indicated in the name, the softbox has a basic ring to hold it together, but instead of full speed rings, one of 13 "inserts" are available and required for a speedlight or specific brand of strobe. The quick release thumb-lock on the Rapid Box Switch ensures the security of your light. Besides the benefit of speed, the softbox is structurally sound with durable metal framework, heat-resistant fabric, and a reflective silver interior that maximizes your light source's output. The Rapid Box Switch Octa's diffusion material has also been thoroughly tested and found to be neutral, ensuring a true rendition of color. A carry case is included for storage and transport.

    Rapid Box Switch Octa-S Softbox 26" is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful light I am so excited to be able to use a Westcott softbox with my Profoto A1s. This redesign of the box to allow multiple inserts for different lights is genius! I've owned many Westcott softboxes, and recently had to go without a softbox for A1s as they didn't fit into the older style Westcott rapid box. Now I have my beautiful soft light, and it's easy to set up and breakdown. Portable is key for on the go set ups, and fast moving sessions. Thank you for a great product Westcott!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Original Better I have owned the original version for years and it is my go to light modifier. I had high expectations for this to cross over between my Canon speed lights and ProFoto B1s. The connection is flimsy and there is no locking knob so it turns if used outside. Not built for a Pro. Probably okay for a beginner or if only used indoors.  Turning this in for an OCF..
