This is a Photoflex OctoDome nxt Extra Small Kit. It includes an 18 x 18 x 9" (1.5' diameter) OctoDome softbox,  metal adapter ring, Adjustable ShoeMount Hardware and HeavyDuty Swivel.

  • OctoDome XS Softbox (Xtra Small, 1.5' Diameter)

    The Photoflex (Xtra Small, 1.5' Diameter) OctoDome nxt softbox is designed for use with strobes or hotlights 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 head-and-shoulders portraits or interviews.

    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 Extra Small Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from it will wet your appetite for more.. when my octodome XS arrived i was very excited to set it arrived at our office so i did not have my gear with me to test it out, but i assembled it still to see how it looks. I was surprised on how easy it was to assemble and how durable the materials used. I read on some reviews that it was hard to assemble and dismantle so i was scared but once i read the instructions briefly to get a general idea on how to do it i was able to assemble it and dismantle it without breaking a sweat. As soon as i got a the chanceto use it when i arrived home (i've been planning on doing this product shoot for weeks now) prior to purchasing the Octodome and finally i got to do it. What came out was one of my favorite shots, it was a simple light set up but with the help of the octodome it put more drama and class to it. then only down side about it is that i want another one..:-) maybe ill buy the octodome S next. truly a great product from a great company. great purchase and value especially if its your first light modifier like mine.:-)*needs to find a way how to mount PW'S especially FLEX TT5 without turning the flash head around if you want the flash to be completely inside and still have access on the flash controls*

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Outdoor/Strobist Kit Excellent product. Great price point, very versatile item to have, a must have for outdoor photography. The kit comes with every you need except the light stand which is also cheap enough to get. Mounts onto any existing light stands you have in the studio or home. Creates an amazingly soft light from the traditional 580ex II. Only restriction is the recycle time for External flash. A battery pack for the 580ex II can be purchased to compensate for this flaw. If you are using a strobe with a battery pack you have nothing to worry about. At first i thought that this was too small however has proven that this can create extremely soft even light in most to all conditions. Other only thing i noticed with the kit is that the heavy duty shoemount it comes with doesn't stay all the time so be careful if you are putting a heavy strobe or flash unit on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Practical but with a few issues. This is a great little softbox that allows you to travel light whenever it is necessary. It is very good as a fill light under harsh conditions like a bright sun or a main light. Add the grid and you can give direction to the light. I have been using it a few times only. I decided to use it last sunday for an on location shoot. First thing I know, one of the 8 rods had lost a tip. I then examined all the others and realized that they were all a bit fragile. I continued shooting until the hole unit fell on the grass ( yes the grass) and the 1/4 to 3/8 in spigot that holds the speedring had broken. I had to take it back to the car. BnH told me to call photoflex for the warranty...I'm still waiting for an answer after a few days. An other negative point, the screw that allows to adjust for the proper height of the flash is very hard to reach. The heavy duty swivel is also hard to locking place. Otherwise no complain about the fabric that is very solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Light Wonder Add your speedlite and the photoflex grid and you have yourself one great light. I love my 7' photoflex OctoDome as much as I love this Extra Small OctoDome. Drop the power down all the way on your flash and move it about a few feet from your subject and you have one great shot. I love just using one light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUST HAVE Before i get 32 inches soft box, and realize is too big for location pictures when you need to move fast. So i decide order this one. Is just great. Small, light weight, and whats most important it gives you very nice soft light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet little softbox So far I really like this little octodome. Lightweight small package that is easy to travel with and perfect for location lighting. Feels well built and seems like it should last a long time
