Incredible light

Recently used on a Portrait session. Very useful, has beautiful lighting, and is fast to set up. Can use by holding, hand to someone or use on a light stand. I love it, the results are excellent. High quality as always. Ninirockx / Instagram

Very nice combination of portability, ease of use and utility. Perfect for softening a portable strobe without having to carry a ton of gear.

THANK YOU!

A bit pricey! I know you're looking and hesitant for that reason alone, but I will say. It's a complete game changer for the A'series lighting set up. Pull out of its sleeve, pull, click & it's open. An assistant can hold this super light set up on location or mount to a stand with its quick securing knob.

Perfect portability

I got the Clic Softbox for the A10 instead of the OCF adapter with free OCF softbox recently promoted by Profoto because I wanted a simpler set up with less pieces. I realize the OCF adapter is a simple and easy to use set up, but with that I'd have to carry at least two items (the adapter and separate modifier) plus a light stand. What I like about the Clic Softbox is that it's all in one and pops open like an umbrella. It folds away quickly. I can hold it in one hand if I want to. I realize I am limited to the softbox as a modifier for the A10 but I am fine with that. For the kind of shooting I do, it is more than enough. If I want something different I can mount any of my umbrellas to the A10. I also like that the Clic Softbox is designed specifically for the A10. I could be wrong but I have my doubts that the A10 would have enough power to work well with the larger OCF modifiers. I will save my OCF modifiers for my B10. In short I love my A10 and I love the Clic Softbox and I feel it was the right choice vs the OCF adapter. Having the portability has made it easier than ever to shoot in locations away from home whereas before I would never have dragged my lighting gear anywhere. The A10 and the Clic softbox make a perfect combination. Not to mention the light quality from the combination is stunning. I hope Profoto comes out with more magnet mounted modifiers just for the A10.

Pleased so far

Used it for the first time both indoors ad outdoors. Please with results. However it was very windy outside so the softbox would often move as I was shooting which became a pain.

Nice light. Poor design...speedlight falls off.

Profoto Clic Octa Softbox produces good light; it has soft-silver/white striped interior; it is double diffused and both diffusers are permanently attached; it's really lightweight and portable (cases included); setup and breakdown are super easy (two-handed to open and single-handed to close); mount made of plastic (not the Profoto OCF ring plastic); accepts other Clic attachments (gels, etc.); mount goes on standard light stand, has a built-in handle with tilt function and the receiver fastens to a standard light stand pin; the fabric grid is extra ($130) but it is sock-like (elastic goes over the soft boxes edges). To my dismay, the magnets in the soft box that hold the speedlight (A1/A1X/A10) are not strong enough. Speedlights fall off with the slightest bump to the soft box or even to the c-stand base. If you move too fast, the speedlight pops out. Also, the magnets that hold the speedlight aren't polished. If you rotate the speedlight while attached to the soft box, speedlight's bezel will get scraped. I am also bummed out that upon registration with Profoto, "My Products" page informed me that neither of the two items have any warranty. That's not cool for a $300 soft box and $130 fabric grid! I reiterate, the light quality from this box produced with a Profoto A10 is darn good. That said, I wouldn't recommend this soft box to anyone because I wouldn't want you to break your ~$1,200 speedlight. I believe Profoto should redesign this box by adding some kind of secondary securing mechanism. For example, the way MagMod uses with their soft boxes.

This softbox is well designed, well built, easy to use, with even intensity across its face. It folds quickly into a compact shape. Great for informal on location photography.

Do I need an extra accessory to use it with the Profot A10? Like a magnet? or is it all included with Softbox?
Asked by: Thomas
No, The Profoto Clic Softbox Octa has an integrated handle with a stand adapter that magnetically connects to the A10 AirTTL Studio Light, as well as other other Profoto C1 and A series flashes. No additional accessories are needed to connect the Profoto C1 and A series flashes to the handle on the Profoto Clic Softbox Octa as the lights have a built-in magnetic mount for connection purposes.
