Westcott 2030 overview

  • 1Description

The Westcott Rapid Box - 20" Octa Mini Softbox lives up to its name by providing a soft quality of light for your shoe-mount flash and by setting up and breaking down in a fraction of the time as most competitors. The box comes complete with a tilting 5/8" receiver stand mount/shoe mount/speed ring combo that disengages quickly from the box allowing it to close like an umbrella.

The 1.0 stop diffusion front face is removable revealing a highly reflective, high-output silver interior. You can soften the light further and defeat hotspots with the separate purchase of the optional 2030-DP Deflector Plate (BH # WE2030DP).

Robust and Durable
The Rapid Box's poles and speed ring are constructed from solid aluminum to minimize weight yet retain durability.
Quick Setup and Tear Down
The Rapid Box opens and closes like an umbrella. No support rods or adapter ring needed. Everything is compact and easy to use.
Sleek and Compact
With a shallow depth, the Rapid Box works in virtually any lighting situation. No matter which box you choose. The Rapid Box series is always compact.
Soft Even Lighting
A screw-in reflector plate will minimize any hot spot. The front diffusion material is the same quality as found on Westcott's current high-quality soft boxes.
Fully Adjustable Stand Bracket
The height and depth are adjustable and compatible with virtually all shoe-mounted flashes.
Utilize Your Speedlite Without the Need for Radio Triggers
External speedlight placement allows firing via built-in slaves and/or IR line-of-site.
Carry Case Included
Durable carry case with shoulder strap is included for simple transportation and storage.

    Rapid Box - 20" Octa Mini Softbox is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This was bought as a B&H kit and included the deflector which is a must. I find it strange that they should sell this box without it. This info aside, the product is awesome. Only disappointment is that it can't be used with my EF-X20 due to the adapter and design. It's truly meant for large speedlites such as my 600EX-RT. The idea behind this purchase was to create a mini portable kit for portrait photography and guess what? It does the job superbly. As a soft box it won't blow away like an umbrella. It's very much like a beauty dish and renders great catch lights. Assembles in seconds, very sturdy and folds away like an umbrella. Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rapid Box Mini - It changed the way I use light As a sports and portrait photographer, a lot of my days end up having to shoot a lit portrait with only speedlights and with this, one light is enough. I've shot models to dramatic portraits of athletes with the Rapid Box and the quality of light, especially with the beauty dish attachment, is incredible. It took my harsh YN568EX and made it the most beautiful soft light even with it only being 20 across. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for high end and mostly affordable modifier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy awesome! Very good build quality, metal bracket, sturdy and small enough that it is ok to use outside in the wind. Snappy little key light! It is 99% perfect, if I had to find something to snivell about I would mention that when using the Nikon CLS system (infrared) outdoors, the sensor is on the right side of the flash. The flash can be turned around to have it facing the left side. I wish the bracket could swivel 90 degrees to have the sensor facing back. It is just a minor detail that should not eclipse the awesomeness of this soft box, besides there is nothing a pocketwizard can't fix...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20 Octa Mini- Great! Took the 20 Octa Mini on a week-long shoot, untested and it became my key light. Easy set-up and great light quality. My speedlight was never set above 1/4 power!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing paints beautiful light Its portable and fits into it's own carry case. It sets up in 15 seconds and is small enough for a pro photog to use without an assistant.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rapid Box - 20 Octa Mini Softbox by Wes This is a great portable softbox for the advance to semi pro photographer. It's very convenient and when you need a softbox this is handy enough to carry around. This softbox work just about any kind of stand, and is very lightweight. only thing i did not like about it was that I had you use seem tape to cover the ends to keep the frame from poking thru the softbox cover.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Octobox I purchased this octobox because the only other one I own is a massive 47, and is not great for using indoors. This one is just about the perfect size for shooting in small spaces, and is a cinch to set up. I do think I would prefer the 26 if given a choice between the two, but this little mini 20 soft box still works just fine.
