Key Features
  • Durable Framework

The Westcott 1x2' Rapid Box Switch Strip lives up to its name by providing a soft quality of light for your shoe-mount flash that sets up and breaks down in a fraction of the time as most competitors. The 1x2' narrow, rectangular shape lends itself to use as a hair light, backlight, or rim light to separate the subject from the background.

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

Robust and Durable

The Rapid Box is 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 softboxes.

Fully Adjustable Stand Bracket

The height and depth are adjustable and compatible with virtually all shoe-mounted flashes.

Utilize Your Speedlight Without the Need for Radio Triggers

External speedlight placement allows firing via built-in slaves and/or IR line of sight.

Carry Case Included

Durable carry case with shoulder strap is included for simple transportation and storage.

question

Is necessary to use the deflector plate with this?
Asked by: Anonymous
You are better off without it. If you photograph the front of the box to see the light pattern, you can see that the deflector plate casts a big shadow right in the middle. Without the deflector plate, and orienting the flash so the beam width is parallel to the long side of the box, and using the WA diffuser on the flash, the light is nice and even.

question

Will this only work for Speedlights or can I use this with my Alien Bees Strobe?
Asked by: David
This Rapid Box Strip is designed for use with a single speedlight. The Rapid Box Strip that works with Studio strobes is the XL strip. These XL units have a built in speedring so order an XL strip with the Balcar, Alien Bees mount. For a Westcott strip that will work with both your Alien Bee and a speedlight, consider the Apollo Strip. All these strip units have an optional grid.
