Key Features
  • For On-Camera Flash Units
  • Silver Interior
  • Quick Setup
  • Inner Baffle, Front Diffuser
The FastBox Octagonal Softbox from Angler is a 20" octagonal softbox designed to set up and collapse in a fraction of the time it takes to set up a standard softbox. With a single motion, it expands to snap and lock into a classic octagonal shape, favored by fashion and portrait photographers for even lighting and round catchlights in your subject's eyes. The silver interior amplifies the output from an on-camera flash, and the inner and outer diffusers create an even beam without hot spots. The FastBox has an adjustable 120° angle and features a twist lock stand adapter that can be attached to any standard 5/8" stud.
