The Luxbanx Medium Octagonal Softbox from Impact is a highly versatile tool for strobes, LEDs, and fluorescents. This 60" diameter softbox demands a bit more space than the smaller version put the payoff is a lot more wrap in the light quality even when use significantly off access. 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! First time using an Octabox and let me tell you I am impressed!. It's a little tough to get together sometimes (depending how lazy you are feeling that day mind you). I do fashion portrait and wow do I ever notice a beautiful difference compared to the harsh light of an umbrella!. Going to be ordering another one but smaller for headshots. This Octabox is definitely perfect for full body shots!.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't expect these results Bought this for portraits with full length in mind. I shot some close up portraits with just the light from this soft box and was very very happy with the results! Very soft light great for b&w photos.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big for the Buck It is big for its price, and seemingly well made. It took some strength to put it together on the speed ring, given its size, but it went as smoothly as expected, for its size. I haven't used it a lot yet, but I like the baffle inside the front face, which would make its softness variable, depending on your preferences. It is big enough for full size portraits, or as one of multiple for lifestyle, and it is very stiff and not too heavy to put on a mini boom. I use it with a Profoto D1, fits well, works well. The bonus is the free Impact Fabric Grid that came with it, it makes the value even more attractive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Size of this Octo! I use this for portrait photography. It is a great size for most anything needing an octobox type of lighting diffuser! I have the large 84 Luxbanx & bought this medium sized 60 to compliment my lighting set ups! If you need a really versatile Octobox for shooting portraits, this is the one to get!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful Light Modifier with a Fatal Flaw The stitching holding the rods in place isn't strong enough to keep the box together. I really like this softbox. It's a great size for soft light without being too large or heavy. The white interior and diffusion panels result in lovely catchlights in the eyes of my subjects for portraits and interviews. I can use this with LED continuous lights for video and strobes for stills. Unfortunately, it broke on me after only a handful of uses. I have invested in several Impact softboxes in this line. They all seem generally well made, but the snaps for the inner baffle have broken on more than one softbox in the first use or two. Not a big deal... easy to fix. When preparing for a shoot, I discovered that the stitching holding the rods in place at the edge of the box had come undone on two of the eight ends, rendering the box useless; forcing me to use a different modifier. It appears that the rod is kept in place by a single line of thread. If that breaks, there is a layer of bias tape that covers the edge of the softbox. Once the tread of the tape fails, the rods protrude and won't hold the shape of the box. I noticed that a few of the other rods have already gone through the first stitch and are only kept in place by the bias tape. Considering the price of this softbox, I shouldn't be surprised that it's not very durable. On the other hand, I've only had the box for two months and used it a handful of times. A simple solution would be to sew a flap of reinforcement material over the edge of each pocket. In fact, I looked at the 36 version of this box and it seems that's what they have done. Why not do it on this version? I don't have the space or a dedicated studio to hang the box to avoid taking it apart repeatedly. I often need to take it out on location, so I wish this product was a bit more robust.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! A great value for the money. Don't bother with the 100-130 dollar cheapy options when much higher quality is availible for just a few dozen dollars more. Trust me, I tried the cheap options first. Wasted my time, should have went straight for this. High quality contruction, no noticable color cast. Just make sure you have heavy duty brackets to mount this puppy to your lights! Its heavy! I found that the brackets that were fine for 36 boxes didn't come close to being able to hold this so I had to order tougher hardware.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this softbox Terrific quality of light. Yes octabanks are a pain to set up, but it's worth it. Comes with a decent case. Strong construction.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Octa i was looking at the Profoto modifiers (I use D1s) but wanted to give the 5' Impact octa a try. I am very pleased with it but it is slightly challenging to put together and even a bit more to take apart if you're alone. I suspect anything this size will be, no matter the brand. It was quick enough though, and feels solid. I haven't used it enough to discern any lighting quality difference with the Profoto ones, or Chimeras. The 5' is a good size, I imagine it won't be too much trouble to use in cramped spaces (I was looking at the 7' as well.) But for sure if money is important, this seems an excellent alternative, given that this softbox costs $200 AND COMES WITH A GRID where the Profoto equivalent will run you about $900 with the optional grid... a very good value to be sure.
