Photoflex 870355 overview

  • 1Description

The narrow profile of the Small Half Dome with White Interior for strobe lights from Photoflex works well for a hair light or rim light for portraits and allows for elongated catchlights in product photography. With a white interior for soft diffusion, a removable interior baffle and diffusion face, it allows for high-contrast effects if desired. The recessed front face permits optional grids that narrow and direct the output and control spill light. A removable strip mask is included with each HalfDome to narrow it further. It's also a space saver when shooting in tight spaces and easy to shoot over when used as a foreground light. A speedring for your brand of strobe is available separately.

  • Narrow-faced soft box fits into smaller sets
  • Light spread - softens the light source and eliminates the hot spot
  • QRC (Quick Release Corners) - for stronger corners and makes it fast break down
  • Suspension loops - suspends the light without using a boom stand
  • White interior
  • Optional grids - allow you to keep light off the background and specifically on the area you want
  • Heat vents - flaps open to help keep box and strobe cooler
  • Carry bag - included for easy storage and transport

    Photoflex 870355 reviews

    Small Half Dome with White Interior (9.5 x 35 x 17.5") is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for It feels quite a bit cheaper than similar Wescott/Chimera boxes, because it is. I put a small tear in one of them first time I set it up, but that was my mistake for trying to set it up without first popping the rods out the face end of the softbox..... only softbox I've ever seen with this design. By popping the rods out the front of the box, and putting them into the speedring while they're laying flat, it does make setting the box up a bit easier. Quality of light is great, it's pretty hard to screw up diffusing light through a white panel, haha! I bought two of them to for a lighting setup I don't use very often, where it didn't make sense for me to spend more money on the more expensive boxes. These boxes are good to be used, but I wouldn't abuse them very hard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality materials combined with great en Photoflex makes very high quality products. What I really like is that they combine quality materials with great engineering and design. The only slight issue I have is that they had to make the box wider than the older ones because of the larger octo adaptor ring. They compensate by providing a black mask to narrow the size. I still give it a 5

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value I use these for hair lights (with a grid). I use two of them overhead, either side of the camera, for small, almost shadow free product photography. Also good as kickers and for half body, hot white background illumination. The 'QR' corners help with knockdown, but don't help with setup. Silver interior would be more versatile but more expensive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice sturdy stripdome This halfdome/stripdome seems sturdier than my other Photoflex softboxes in that the fabric feels thicker althoughI've never had one rip anyways. The vents on the sides helps reduce heat but you can also creatively use reflectors to broaden the light if you wish. The front panel does seem just a little too small which makes it tougher to attach.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Halfdome is a great product! I have needed this product for a long time; and at such an affordable price I'm not sure why I didn't buy it years ago. It is the perfect hair light; making the control of light much easier and more precise than other things I've used for this purpose. I am delighted with it, and I highly recommend it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hair / Rim Light Well made and quickly assembled and disassembled. Makes a great hair light or rim light, especially with fabric grid attachment. Photoflex has continually made very affordable products that hold up well. Very good value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great box, tough setup Using as a rim light for portraits. Does its job great, putting both an AlienBees B800 and a Nikon SB600 into it. Can just be a little tough to setup at first, though I think it'll get easier over time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Softbox 101 I use this product mainly for hair light and separation light. I have always used Photoflex and like them very well. This is an extremely easy softbox to set up and tear down with easy storage.
