Its small form factor makes it a valuable tool no matter what size your shooting space is.

The Rapid Box Switch Strip Softbox's diffusion material has also been thoroughly tested and found to be neutral, ensuring a true rendition of color.

question

Will this only work for Speedlights or can I use this with my Alien Bees Strobe?
Asked by: David
This Rapid Box Strip is designed for use with a single speedlight. The Rapid Box Strip that works with Studio strobes is the XL strip. These XL units have a built in speedring so order an XL strip with the Balcar, Alien Bees mount. For a Westcott strip that will work with both your Alien Bee and a speedlight, consider the Apollo Strip. All these strip units have an optional grid.

question

My strip bank doesn't open straight. When open, the bank is crooked. How to I adjust it without breaking it? Like the tent isn't on the speed ring correctly.
Asked by: Samantha F.
You do indeed need to loosen the 4 screws on the back to allow rotating the ring.
