My first profoto softbox, which is a little different the elinchroms I had. It is harder to assemble but it is sturdier.

I've used this Profoto Octa 3' softbox for portrait location shoots and it's a perfect size, not to big, not to small. Easy set up, less difficult putting together than past RFi soft boxes when using with the newer RFi Speed Ring I purchased as well.

Prior to purchase I was concerned about the speed of assembly. I have found it is just as quick as the OCF line. The build is solid and the light out put was spot on.

Amazing beautiful light and quality from Profoto!

I have experience with Profoto softboxes so I knew what I was getting. What I didn't expect was the 'new feel' of them. I'm not sure if Profoto enhanced durability with the softboxes or maybe I was using the older OCF versions, but this thing is built like a tank. If the shell gets torn, it's totally on you. It's just so durable. I see this thing lasting me 20 years. The durability and beautiful light you get from this Profoto softbox and slight premium you pay for it make it a hands-down winner.

This softbox was the perfect size to carry around while traveling. It is easy to set up and takedown, also lightweight enough to carry with you on long treks. Performs awesome outside a studio setting. I only wish I had a lightweight portable strobe.

Love it A+ light and easy to set up

Purchased this as got tired of the metal beauty dish. I do have one issue, the poles do slide out of the front sometimes when setting up. Wish they had some way of better securing it, seems I have to hold the rods in while hooking up the speed ring as they pop out the other side sometimes even when they are in the little housing for them if not fully secure. The fabric is great and the light is beautiful from it.

Beautiful light

question

Will the older Profotl speedrings for the RF boxes work with this?
Asked by: David G.
Due to the new design and different rod diameter of the rods included with the Profoto RFi softboxes, you must use a Profoto RFi speedring with a Profoto RFi softbox. Other speedrings will not be compatible with this softbox.

Would love to know the difference between the RFI and the OFC soft boxes. ?
Asked by: CHINA
The RFi are our most popular softboxes and are ideal for both studio and on-location work. OCF Softboxes are used with our off-camera flashes and are super-portable and lightweight which makes them perfect for remote location shooting.

Asked by: William
Not out of the box. However Profoto does make a bracket that holds 1-4 speedlights and also has a RFI speedring fastened to it. B&H sells it as does the Pofoto site.
