Asked by: James
The Rapid Box with the fixed mount cannot be used with the Rapid Box Switch. Once you own the Rapid Box Switch, you will have a backwards compatible and future-proof unit.

Would this work with godox V1
Asked by: James
Yes! It will work. You will need to take the round dome head off before inserting it. Once the flash unit is secured in, the dome can be attached from the inside of the softbox. Hope this helps!

I want to use my A1 with my Profoto OCF modifiers. If I purchase the switch, is there a converter to then attach my OCF mods?
Asked by: Trish
At this time, Profoto has not released any attachments allowing their OCF modifiers to fit the A1. That Westcott ring only allows the Profoto A1 to fit the Westcott Rapid Boxes Switch softboxes.
