Photoflex 870454 overview

  • 1Description

The Photoflex (Small, 3' Diameter) OctoDome nxt softbox is designed for use with strobes or hotlights up to 1,000 watts. Its circular design provides diffused light that is as wide as it is tall. It has an internal baffle that eliminates hotspots with smooth, natural light. Its narrow profile gives you more versatility in small rooms.

Use this size for 1/2-length portraits or interviews of 1 or 2 people.

A Series 900 Speed Ring is required for mounting the OctoDome to your light, and is not included.

Quick Release Corners (QRC) relieve pressure on support rods for quick and easy softbox set up and breakdown
Use both the face and the baffle for the softest, most diffused light
Use the OctoDome without the face or baffle for a broad, high-contrast light
OctoDome optional grids provide precise control of light

    OctoDome nxt Softbox (Small, 3' Diameter) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Octodome is the way to go! I have my assistant use this on a handheld pole with two speedlights mounted on it. It works so well and has the punch to match existing light conditions so that I get perfect exposures every time. To mount it on a pole, you need a photoflex swivel. You also need a photoflex speed ring (basic,) and two photoflex speedlight adaptors. The speed ring is made to have only one speedlight adaptor, so you will need to drill one small hole on the exact opposite side of the speed ring for the guide pin on the adaptor. (Extremely simple) When it is done, one flash is mounted in a normal vertical mount, and the other is upside down. This thing works great. Hook up a pocket wizard with a Y splitter from your kids headphones, and both flashes will fire at once to balance existing light even on the brightest day!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality The construction of the OctoDome nxt is very solid and looks like it can handle any amount of abuse you throw at it. Initial problems I had with setting up was that I was worried the connecting spokes would bend easily or break since you will have to use some strength to attach them into the speed rings. After several uses though, I was assured that the materials used will not wear down that easily. Highly recommended for beginners to advanced shooters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light Modifier The PF OctoDome is a perfect solution for beautiful light and soft fall-off at the PhotoFlex price. I am looking forward to getting a second to see how it affects for fill. Worked perfectly for one model and in tight interiors - just large enough to give good coverage but not so much I couldn't get around it. Also, this is the only Octo I could find with a fabric grid system, which I am very interested in exploring... This was money very well spent. The larger Octos look like fun, too, but given I was using this on new D1 Airs, I think I will have to wait until my budget recuperates! The support system for PhotoFlex could be improved, as the bendable rods tend to be challenging to work with at times. But, maybe that is the small tradeoff for the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Octabox There is just something about octabox light... Used a few octa's before, this is my favorite. Really easy to assemble (60 seconds) and gorgeous light. This was my first Photoflex product, and the build quality is really impressive. Strong fabrics, nice supports, its a product that you can use and abuse for quite some time and it will stay right there with you. Highly recommended.
