This is the Hensel 5' diameter Octaform Lightbank. It is designed for use with flash heads only. Its design provides diffused light that is as wide as it is tall. It illuminates your subject evenly head to toe. Its narrow profile gives you more versatility in small rooms.

Use this size for 3/4-length portraits of 1 - 2 people.

A speed ring for Monolights or EH series flash heads is required, and must be ordered separately.

Use the Octaform without the face or baffle for a broad, high-contrast light.
Use both the face and the baffle for the softest, most diffused light.
Silver interior provides specular highlights, and slightly harder light quality than a softbox with a white interior.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Results with this softbox The Octaform softbox from Hensel produces great lighting, I shoot with this product all the time now. The 5' is the way to go, it throws light so well on the subject with soft shadows it makes taking professional pictures a breeze. It is made of heavy duty material that is built to last. I am rough with my gear but I think this box will do just fine. The only thing I would change about it is the fact that it is a difficult to take down, however I have not seen an application yet that would make it easier

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, high-end lightbank Wonderful construction, like all Hensel gear. This is the most durable large bank I've ever used, and I've used them all. Reasonable price when compared to competition (Chimera, Elinchrom Octa)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hensel Octaform Performed Brilliantly I purchased the Hensel Octaform Lightbank (5', 150cm) for my personal studio. I am an amateur photographer. I paired the Lightbank with the Chimera Octaplus speed ring. I used this setup with my Hensel Integra 500W monolights. Setup. I had never used a softbox of any kind. I was puzzled how the speed ring and box went together (no directions for either), but found a Hensel video on YouTube and my questions were answered. The first time it was difficult to get all of the metal supports to go into the ring but got better with practice. By the second time, I found it was easy. Same with takedown. I found it easiest to gently bend the box against an upholstered chair and the takedown was easy. Quality The materials seem to be very sturdy. The supplied carry bag in which to place the pieces was a bit small to my liking but i got everything in. Light I got some gorgeous pics using this modifier. For some, it served as a bright white background for some portraits. In another setup, the large light provided a nice soft light across my model, who was on all fours on a bench. I have had this device for only one photo session but I think it is an improvement over my old umbrellas. I highly recommend it.
