question

Would this work nicely on the AD600 and AD200?
Asked by: Thanh D.
This Medium Apollo will pair nicely with the AD200. I would suggest using it with the bare bulb in a rear facing position to maximize the spread of light in the modifier. The size of the AD600 and therefore the fit inside the box may not make it ideal unless you use the accessory H600b remote head.

question

can i use this soft box with my spyderlight td6?
Asked by: Maryke
The TD6 is not a good combo with the 28 due to the size and configuration of the head which may cause the lamps to come in contact with the Modifier. The Apollo Orb kit or the JS Apollo with an added medium to heavy duty stand will work with the TD6 but the shallow soft boxes designed for use with the TD6 heads is the ideal combination.

question

Will this softbox work with an optical trigger? Since the flash is enclosed I was not sure if it would prevent the transmission of the signal from camera to flash.
Asked by: Donna
Honest answer is: I don't know. I use the 10m(33ft) cord that Syl Arena recommends. It allows you to control the OCF from the camera's menus. Don't use a curly one, you will pull the light stand over!

question

Are there any CFL fixtures that will work with this? Looking for this to pull double duty for stills as well as video. I know the D5 will fit in the orb, looking to put a continuous light in here as well.

From Westcott's Apollo product description The 28 Apollo can be used with flash, fluorescent sources or hot lights up to 500 watts .

question

How can this soft box be used for video lighting. Please include exact recommendations of which lights to consider using.
Asked by: Scott
I didn't use this for video lighting I used this for my external flash on my camera. Given your specific question I would think that if you used a 100+ watt bulb you should be able to use it for video, easily.

question

Can this be carried in a 28 suitcase if taken out of the box? What are the actual dimensions?
Asked by: Noorulain M.
Straight out of my box, it measures about 35 in.from end to end. Somewhat similar to a large umbrella. When opened it is 28 28. across. Height is approximately 24 in. when standing on a surface in an open position, dome downward.
