Impact Luxbanx Small Octagonal Softbox (36")
Key Features
  • White Interior
  • Spare Rod
  • Removable, Recessed Front Diffuser
  • Removable Inner Baffle
The Luxbanx Small Octagonal Softbox from Impact is a highly versatile tool for strobes, LEDs, and fluorescents. This 36" diameter softbox is large enough to exhibit the wrap-around light quality that this octagonal shape is known for, yet small enough to use in tight spaces. The softbox features a soft white interior, removable front diffuser and removable inner baffle. The diffuser and baffle can be used together for maximum softening of the output. Removing the inner baffle will give you a more crisp light quality with higher contrast, while shedding the front and inner diffusers turns the Luxbanx into a large reflector with maximum brightness and contrast.

Impact Small Octagonal Overview

The Luxbanx Small Octagonal Softbox from Impact is a highly versatile tool for strobes, LEDs, and fluorescents. This 36" diameter softbox is large enough to exhibit the wrap-around light quality that this octagonal shape is known for, yet small enough to use in tight spaces. The softbox features a soft white interior, removable front diffuser and removable inner baffle. The diffuser and baffle can be used together for maximum softening of the output. Removing the inner baffle will give you a more crisp light quality with higher contrast, while shedding the front and inner diffusers turns the Luxbanx into a large reflector with maximum brightness and contrast.

The octa Luxbanx has an additional control via the optional fabric grid which mounts to the recessed lip of the softbox with touch-fasteners. The grid narrows and concentrates the light's beam forward, controlling spill and adding directional control to the Luxbanx's attributes. The large surface area of this octagonal-shaped softbox gives you a unique wrap-around quality of light that gains emphasis as you move it closer. Catchlights in the eyes of your subject are round and natural. Every Luxbanx comes with a carrying case and a spare Flex Rod. Separate purchase of a speed ring that matches your strobe's mount is required for use. Impact makes models to fit most popular brands.

Impact Small Octagonal Reviews

Decent but...

By Marcus

decent but not good quality. The diffuser is very poorly seen and mine came with two sides off it ripped out because those threads are so weak. If you know how to sew it's an easy fix but definitely just plan on using this indoors as taking it apart and setting it up more than once will probably break the diffuser really fast

Lots of Power having two speedlights! Yup - a pain to setup

Ok, There's a lot in this kit for the price, and it does what it is supposed to... Here's the but - it is not easy to assemble. Of course I read previous reviews on the difficulty in the assembly process so I was prepared for some work. I didn't mind because I knew I wasn't going to be using it much - hence the attraction to the low price. I underestimated the pain to put the rods in the flash ring. I see why they have added an extra rod because some of mine will need to straightening after using a few times. No complaints on the stand. The speedlite holder is a little awkward, but it works and seems solid. I also purchased an Angler BoomBox (26) speedlite kit, and I'm impressed by the umbrella opening and closing style, but of course that one doesn't have two speedlights (which having two may be overkill honestly). I'm not sure if I would purchase this model again, even though I don't use it very often. I'm debating if I would recommend it to others or not. I think it would be great for a studio where it would be left assembled, but if it were in use at a studio, would I be using speedlites?? I cannot complain about the power of having two canon 600EX II-RT's in one modifier. Those little devils will throw light a long way. I had a subject test this by standing more than 30 feet and the flash was strong enough to look like it was just off camera (in pitch black darkness). I had the inner baffle, the outer diffuser and the grid attached and it still had plenty of punch. Sample image was taken at 1/60 at f/2.8 with ISO 400 using a Canon 70D with two 600EX II-RT flashes and modifier close to 40 feet away from the subject. Have Fun!

I do a lot of filming and selftapes for myself and other actors. This diffuser is a charm.

Good value softbox. I see why apeture softboxes are so expensive. These aren't convenient to constantly breakdown and reinstall but they do a good job. The rods are already bending after a couple uses.

well-made

Great softbox, but definitely annoying to put together

Just like any octabox, it's a bit tricky to put together and take apart. It definitely takes some breaking in. But the lighting is good, very similar to the profoto octabox.

Poor Quality Control

By Mike

I received two of these as part of a light kit I purchased. One of the softboxes assembled fine with no issues. The other was not manufactured properly and did not assemble well at all. The shell was too small and therefore the assembly was very difficult and the final result was a barely useable softbox with light gaps around the speed ring. These are not softboxes that I would have sold with a light kit billed as portable with battery powered lights, I would need to add an hour to my on site time for a shoot just to assemble and disassemble these softboxes. (Yes, I did follow the directions and the rods, which are now bent, were installed in the proper manner.) To further add to my frustration, B&H appears to be unwilling to work with me towards an acceptable solution. So now I have a nice light kit with one softbox that is barely useable and the other I may not ever use, either.

Asked by: Neil
The Impact Luxbanx Duo Small Octagonal Softbox (36 ) B&H # IMLBODS is a more suitable softbox since it is heat resistant. It will attach to the Qualite 300 with the Angler Speed Ring for Angler Shadow Focus Spot B&H # AN7464SFS.

question

will the Impact Luxbanx Small Octagonal Softbox (36 ) speed ring fit my alien bee?
Asked by: Cecilia e.
If you go to the Impact website, you should be able to find which speeding will fit your Alien Bee strobe; I know I got one for my Einstein strobe which works perfectly. All the Paul C. Buff speed rings fit their strobes the same way, it has different holes in the ring for different soft boxes etc. You can call them and they will be glad to assist you.
