Westcott Switch Octa-S Overview

Compatible with speedlights or strobes, the Rapid Box Switch Octa-S with Profoto Insert from Westcott is designed for fast setup and swapping out of different brands of strobes and speedlights in seconds, as the name implies. This version of the Octa includes a Profoto insert.

Westcott Rapid Box Switch Octa-S Softbox (26")

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, 13 "inserts" are available and are 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.

Asked by: Pascal
Yes, the rapid box and the rapid switch are the same size - all they changed was the back mounting plate receiver. The Diffusion and Eggcrate are the same. I own both the older rapid box and newer rapid box switch. I was also able to unscrew the back plate from the older rapid box and replace it with a new rapid box switch studio strobe insert when I changed from speed lights to studio mono lights. On the older boxes the strobe inserts are screwed in - on the newer switch boxes the strobe inserts pop on and off through a spring switch. The outside diameters of both the old and new strobe plates are the same size.

The reviews say that the Rapid Box spins, is there a suggested way to lock?
Asked by: Ashley
This was only on certain models and it has been re-manufactured. In 2019, a tightening bolt was included with Rapid Boxes. If you purchase a Rapid Box in 2019 and your unit does not have this bolt, please call in to Westcott to receive this for free. 1-800-886-1689.
