Wescott's 43" Apollo Orb is the first octagonal softbox that works without an adapter ring. The compact softbox simply opens like an umbrella. Place your flash inside, attach the included diffusion panel and you're ready to shoot. The Orb has a deeper profile to evenly project the light source for maximum output while creating round, natural catchlights in your subject's eyes. For even more directional control and to prevent lens flare, you can move the diffuser closer to the light than its standard position or use the included 40° fabric grid.

Asked by: Wyatt
There is an opening on the bottom of the Orb softbox that allows you to tilt. If you want an extreme tilt of the modifier, we recommend using a mini-boom arm.

Hello, is one speedlight (relative to the size of he softbox) enough to do a half-body to full-body shot? Also another question, 1 speedlight is it enough for a group photo of 3-5 people? Thanks in advance
Asked by: mcmc
Thanks for your questions. Both answers rely on the amount of ambient lighting. Most modern speedlights produce about 75 watt seconds of power output. To create a half body shot, your 43" Apollo Orb should be 3-4 feet away from your subject, which a speedlight should supply enough power for this situation (may not work in full sun). For a full body shot, your 43" Apollo Orb should be 6-7 feet away from your subject (may require cloudy environment or indoor setting). For a group of 3-5 people your 43" Apollo Orb should be 8-10 feet away from your subjects and a speedlight will not do a great job unless you're in a cloudy environment or indoor setting. The great feature about the 43" Apollo Orb is that it's built on an umbrella mount so it can be used on speedlights, and also more powerful strobes for those times that you need more light output.

question

How durable is the Orb when using it outside? i.e. wind
Asked by: Armando V.
I have never had a problem using the Orb outside, even in strong winds. The Rapid Boxes do have a stronger build but neither will sustain a heavy impact with the ground and so sandbagging accordingly or an assistant will be needed.

question

Will this fit the baja b4's?
Asked by: Sarah
Sarah,The length of the Baja B4 should fit in the reflective mounting position, however, the bulb will be close to the umbrella fabric and thus have a limited spread across the silver surface. As an alternative, I would suggest one of the Deep White Umbrellas and a spill kill reflector as an alternative to the Orb for your Baja.

question

I have a canon 600ex-RT, do I need any additional accessory? Or what's inside the box of this item is enough?
Asked by: Jose
All you need is the canon st e3 rt....radio transmission so the flash can fire from inside the softbox. I have the yongnuo setup and it works exactly the same just way cheaper. But yes the kit comes with everything
