Digital Juice FRAME1-KIT1 overview

  • 1Description

The Digital Juice Butterfly Frame Bundle (8x8') has everything you need to create large light sources, reflect or absorb light and mount the frame to optional C-Stands.

The Butterfly Frame has an ingenious design that will have you up, running and shooting in seconds. Unlike conventional frames there's no assembly of the 4 aluminum sides of this frame. Hinged corners allow it to "pop up" just like the smaller PVC frames but with greater structural integrity - a quality you'll appreciate in adverse conditions like windy days. Use the included white artificial silk diffusion material either overhead to soften harsh sunlight or vertically for a reflector or to punch strobe, tungsten or HMI light through. The provided solid black fabric is can be used to flag off the light, use as a background or create contrast with "negative reflectance." Use the included Bungee Cord Set to fasten the grommeted holes on the edges of the screen to the sides of the frame to make the fabric taught

This kit is ideal for small productions or even single shooters. While you can always press an assistant into service to hold the frame, why not use the included accessories to mount it to C-Stands to create a large tilting screen? The included C-Stand Frame Clamps make it a snap. Made of the same sturdy aluminum that the frame is, each clamp slides onto the frame and is secured by 2 hefty polycarbonate knobs. Pressure plates are built into the jaws of the clamp so that there's no danger of the tightened screw denting the frame. The 5/8" diameter stud at the end of the clamp fits neatly into an optional grip head atop the C-Stand (purchased separately). The frame can then tilt 360 degrees between the stands.

The kit is rounded out by 2 carry bags to hold the frame and its accessories.

While normal frames of this size need a large vehicle for transport, the Digital Juice Butterfly Frame Bundle can be folded up and transported with your other gear with room to spare. Best of all, it can be carried and set up by just one person.
Includes Bags
The Butterfly Frame Bundle comes in two bags, one for the black solid and white artificial silk fabric scrims plus the bungee tie-downs, and the other for the 8-segment collapsible frame.
Multiple Uses
On location the Butterfly Frame Bundle can help soften sunlight over an area large enough to cover your talent. In a studio situation, you can soften one large light source or you can turn multiple lights into a single soft light. With this kit, you can make almost any light a flattering light. And if you need a negative fill or black background this kit has you covered. The black solid scrim is made of non-reflective fabric that is perfect for studio product shots or for professional looking portraits.

Butterfly Frame Bundle (8x8') is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well - easily transportable. Have only used the 8X8 overhead on two shoots so far and it has worked very well. It's an easy enough set-up for one person but I'd recommend two, especially when attaching to C-Stands. It does the trick very nicely as both an outdoor softener and inside as a great diffusion to shoot a light(s) through. It is very easy to load up and fits in a small carry case for the frame and another one for the fabrics and connectors. Be aware that both the silk and the black fabric have a seam running across the middle, but this does not seem to affect light or create any shadow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Price - amazing item Though I've yet to use it on any exterior shoots, it feels very sturdy and you can set this up pretty easily. The most beneficial thing about this is that it's compact. You can transport it easily. They claim that you can set it up by yourself, but really, you can set up any 8x8 frame by yourself. This one is much heavier than the traditional matthews 8x8 frames that you would rent from a rental house, but that might just mean it's sturdier? The silk doesn't really say how many stops it cuts out - and it would be nice to have the option to get a ultra bounce as well.. but all in all, you're getting two fabrics, the frame and ears for a really good deal. Fabrics are high quality as well, stitching and all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I work in a video production department of one, so I only want products that are manageable by a single person. This product is great. Easy and fast to set up and lightweight but durable. I've used Matthews butterflys before, but this is much easier for those without a crew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment for shooting outdoors I bought this when Digital Juice first introduced it several years ago. I would buy it again in a heartbeat. I have been gaffing for 38 years. Every gaffer or DP I come across is wowed by the speed and ease of setup. In my opinion the price is very reasonable. The fact that it breaks down to only a 4 ft small bag for the frame and a small bag for the scrim is great. I too use sash rather than the supplied bungies. You can mount any 8x8 silk, net, etc. You will love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid kit I like this kit a lot, it works well in my 1-ton doesn't take up to much space. the ears are much bigger then they look in the photos. the silk and solid are both pretty okay but id buy a Mathews if you have the extra cash. it can go on C-stands just fine but if you are in a windy area id use Combos with a lollypop. im not a huge fan on the little tie deals it came with but they work well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice easy 8x8 overhead butterfly system. Nice easy 8x8 overhead butterfly system. However, the provided bungee tie downs over stress the grommets and might cause sewn seam splitting. I have changed to using Matthews sash quick tie downs instead.
