Profoto RFi Octa Softbox 5' Reviews

Very Disappointing

By Shawn
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-10

I bought this to replace the Photoflex 5 foot OCTA that has served me well for about 10 years despite some significant wear and tear. Even though I liked the Photoflex a lot, the Profoto is deeper, so I figured I'd give it a shot and assume that the higher price tag meant higher quality...boy was I wrong. The poles only have one point of contact with the interior of the box (other than the pockets for the pole ends) way down by where they slip into the pockets around the rim. So the ends that attach to the speed ring have a lot of play and in turn go all over the place. Likewise the poles slip out of the pockets very easy making it challenging to set up. For on location shooters this is an issue. The inner baffle doesn't have extra thick material in the center (reducing the hot spot) like I've seen in other boxes and overall the material doesn't feel durable. Probably going to return this. Not worth the money at all.

Excellent!

Big soft light. Quality product and very well made. Does not come with speed ring. However, that's good thing as you may have different flash heads.

I have used and or owned every piece of Profoto gear they have made in the last 30 years. This is not up to par with past Profoto gear.  I have used this maybe 15-20 times ane the silver interior is separating from the black and the wands are all bent as well.

Nice quality materials

Seems like a very sturdy and rugged box that will last for a long time. The quality of light is nice, but a bit contrasty due in large part to the sliver interior. Overall I love it.

Love this

You need a speedring for that. I believe Aperture used the same speeding mount as Bowen. Profoto sells speedring for Bowen. That should make this work on your lights.

question

Anyone tried this box with a 500w tungsten fixture? Some Profoto heads have 500w modeling lights so I'm thinking it might work on a Chimera Triolet with a 500w bulb.
Asked by: John
It is not recommended to use that with hot lights. Most of the Profoto lights do not come with 500 watt modeling lamps but some you can get that wattage and use it. But not with that softbox.
