Perfect Paired

The convenience of an umbrella meets the control of a softbox. Built on an umbrella frame, the Apollo light modifiers set up in seconds.

Perfect on Location

No additional parts and pieces to lug around as these units simply open up just like an umbrella and set up in seconds making them perfect for any on-location photographer.

No Adapter Ring Required

Most softboxes require expensive and heavy adapter rings to properly set up. Built on an umbrella frame, these units simply pop open like an umbrella and fit into the umbrella receptacle found on virtually all style "studio" lights.

Perfectly Paired with Speedlights

The Apollo light modifier is a perfect pair with speedlights offering soft box control with the set up ease of an umbrella. An optional 5015 Shoe Mount bracket is required to mount the speedlights and Apollo onto a light stand with full tilting capability.

104 Degree Light Spread

The larger the light source, the softer the light. That is certainly the case with this extra-large 50" JS Apollo. Perfect for portraits and couples, this unit also offers a recessed edge allow better control of light.

Pure Color

Fabrics are pure in color so the color temperature going into the fabric is the same color temperature coming back out.

Recessed Edge

The large recessed edge provides even greater light control allowing feathering of light to see exactly where the light is starting and stopping.

question

Could someone recommend a great stand for this light? I'd like to be able to tilt it, so I think I need a boom arm. I'd like one that is easy to adjust, not too awkward. I don't think the Matthews Stand tilts. A C-stand with wheels might be nice, but need someone to point me in the right direction! Thanks!
Asked by: Susanna P.
C stands do not take wheels. The weight of the light has a big part to what will work with the boom in terms of a stand/boom.The best I use is this one by Avenger, A4041B Alu Boom Stand. It can support 22-33 lbs depending on the boom extension.And it does take wheels.

Can be used for groups? How many people?

Can be used for groups? How many people?
Asked by: Gilberto
There are a lot of factors involved. Distance of light to group, arrangement of the group, what type of light is in the box, camera settings and level of expectations are all important. Experimentation is usually the best bet to figure out how many it can cover in your circumstance, but it can range from 1 to 20+.
