Bowens BW-1500 Overview

  • 1Description

This Bowens Lumiair 60-80 Softbox (31.5 x 23.6 x 12.6") is a good choice for softening the output of your flash.

Precision tension ensures straight edges delivering clean cut-off of the light beam, while the optimum color calibration of the reflective interior surface together with shallow construction, offers a high degree of light efficiency.

Add to this two layers of diffusion and you have an even spread of light - no more than 1/2 stop from center to edge, without distracting hotspots. Each Lumiair softbox comes complete with a simple zip-up carry case to ensure safe and easy transportation to location shoots. Lumiair softboxes also include the main canopy, a rear cowl, front diffuser, internal diffuser and support rods.

Lumiair softboxes come with a 2-part speed ring - a basic ring accepts the rods and the included Bowens insert. There are also inserts available for most other flash head brands.

    Bowens BW-1500 Reviews

    Lumiair 60-80 Softbox (31.5 x 23.6 x 12.6-) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality These soft boxes are well made. Bowens makes quality products. Really happy with the purchase. They should last for a long time. The stitching is heavy duty, same as the material.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a small studio or location work I bought this primarily for location portrait work. Construction is super sold - the light this box produces is really soft and beautiful. The included speed-ring was surprisingly well made. The soft box breaks down fairly easily and the included carrying case makes it perfect for my needs. If you're looking for a mid-size box to use on location that is going to standup the rigors of professional use, buy it. You won't regret it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product I use this on a battery powered portable studio flash unit that I use for outdoor portraiture. It throws a wonderfully even soft light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Softbox Being on the road means having great and durable gear that is also easy to set up and breakdown. The Bowens 60 x 80 softbox is perfect for headshots, glamour, over and under beauty, and a wide variety of other uses. It is sturdy and is the only softbox I've ever purchased that comes with the speeding for Bowens S-Mount. With most softboxes you buy the speedings separately, adding to the cost. Add the Bowens Quick Release Speedring attachment and setup, breakdown, and storage is a breeze. You can get a third party bowens mount ring for a speed light from Godox or Phottix and swap in between any S-Mount modifier easily. I regularly go in between this softbox and a Phottix Luna Beauty Dish for my speed lights. You are no longer fumbling with multiple speedings, attachments, DIY, or searching endlessly for a foolproof system: this is it. Plus, now you are into a fully professional line of soft boxes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Softboxes at an excellent price Are there cheaper softboxes on the market? Yes. Are they made as well as the lumiair series or as well built? No. Bottom line, you get what you pay for and these softboxes are well worth the price. I love these softboxes. They work great on my Gemeni 400rx kit and, having in my kit highly modular only adds to their value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bowens Lumiair 60-80 softbox Had my first chance to use this along with a beauty dish. Nice wrap around lighting. Catch lights in the eyes are obviously rectangular, but not obtrusive. Couldn't be happier.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice light I love the light quality from this softbox.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size I bought this to use as an option that I can put on a boom arm instead of a beauty dish. I have a beauty dish but wanted something with a little more spread to use in its place on occasion. This works perfect.

    Does it fit in the AlienBees flash units?
    Asked by: Jesus R.
    Sorry; I have no idea. I only use them with Bowens 1500 Gemini-Pro flash units---with which they work very well.
