The Photoflex (Large, 7' Diameter) OctoDome³ softbox is designed for use with strobes only, with modeling lights up to 500 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 full-length portraits of 2 or 3 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
Using the included gold and silver panels results in a warmer, more natural image
OctoDome optional grids provide precise control of light

    OctoDome3 Softbox (Large, 7' Diameter) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Domenate Your Lighting! The Octodome Softbox comes in three sizes I like the Large 7' version because you can use it as singular light source to illuminate portraits, full-length fashion, and inanimate scenes that require soft yet directional lighting with natural round specular hightlights. The Octodome also requires less depth than comparable square or rectangular softboxes. Add a grid surface to focus the light and eliminate scattered fall-off on the background. Octodome is a very efficient reflective source that can simulate sunlight with a front surface grid and warming filter ... David Watersun Watersun Photography

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, Size Does Matter! I love this octodome and the results I get. This octodome stands alone in the studio and needs no other help from any other light source. The grid is a must have so make sure you get that also. You will need a stand like the Bogen 3071B and the caster set 109 to wheel this monster around. This octodome is not for a small studio, you will need at least 10 foot walls. A step ladder helps when installing the grid. Make sure you have a big enough strobe head that will make this beast shine. A 2500 Ws head will work just fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not as soft as Elinchrom Octabank Needed a large softbox for single light setups, and loved the effect of the Elinchrom Octabank. While not as soft, the price is definitely right! Would purchase again. A few things I noticed - The internal reflector lining isn't flush to the back of the softbox. So half of the flash tube is sitting below the reflector lining. Im sure it cuts down on some of the efficiency. 4 rare earth magnets inside and outside took care of that. - Not as soft as Octabank because flash is facing forward instead of back into the softbox. But the size softens it up enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I bought this 7 foot octobox to use for a full length fashion shoot and to impress my friends. This product excelled in both aspects. I was slightly wary of how the quality of the material/manufacturing was going to be, but upon receiving it and setting it up I see that this thing is built to last... the rods are heavy duty and will likely never break and the material itself is outstanding. The lighting it creates is put simply AMAZING. I know other reviewers have mentioned this, but it really is much larger than you are possibly imagining... you will in fact need a good sized studio.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Octodome! I've had this Octodome for at least 4 years now, always been used in the studio. It gives out a soft broad light and is perfect for fashion shoots. I love how Photoflex included liners and you don't have to buy them separately. I mostly use the silver for my shoots. Coupled with the grid it's one of my main modifiers. The only problem I have with it is that it get's heavy, especially if you add the grid. Even for a Profoto D4 head, it will creep down. So I had to clamp it directly on the speedring and then attach it to the stand. I used to have a White-Lightning 1600Ws attached to it full time, but the mount on that light would just give up. I probably would not buy this product again, but If I have to and if money is a bit short then I will. All in all a great value for the money and the quality is great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this thing! I've only done a couple of shoots with the 7' Octodome but I love it! The dispersion of light is wonderful. The first shoot I did with it was at an event. I placed the box behind me to create a shadowless light. It worked exactly like I wanted and the shoot was successful. The second shoot was full body portraits and it gave me exactly the look I was expecting from it. An even, soft look from head to toe. At 7', it does take some room to use. I would also say that it takes two people to easily set up. Getting the velcro tabs to loop over the end of the poles is tough and is easier if a second person bends the pole. One thing that I don't understand is that it doesn't fit back in the carrying sleeve to well. For some reason, the poles are too long. Probably operator error. If used outside, definately sandbag or weight your stand as this thing is a big sail in the wind. I'm really looking forward to using it for many different configurations in the studio and for my architecture work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, even light I use this in my studio. It spreads soft even light, simulating a large window for full length shots. Because of it's size, mounting on the strobe has to be solid and the mounting mechanism for the strobe must be sturdy enough to hold. Certainly a fabulous addition to a studio.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Its a great product for the cost. A little bit tricky when assembling, otherwise great octodome. Used it on location for a fashion shoot. Great light coverage; love the silver interiors. U need a great amount of power to let it shine at it's entire splendor. The double diffusion might be too much, but good if you want a even light from center to the edge.
