question

I lost the bolt for this, can I buy just that?
Asked by: Anonymous
The screw is a 5mm, 0.8mm thread pitch (coarse), 10mm long threads. The head appears to be made to accommodate tightening with a coin. If you don't care about having the same head configuration a replacement could probably easily be found at a hardware store. Screw it in tight & leave it.

question

Without the bolt, what's the diameter of the hole in te middle? Would it fit in a 8mm shaft?
Asked by: Wirton
The center of the plate is a touch smaller than 8mm. And the plate is not designed to work with the softbox without the screw and bolt.

question

Does this plate fold with the octa box or does it need to be removed to pack?
Asked by: Alan J.
Yes, it needs to be removed. But, it is very quick and easy to do, and it stores in the pouch along with everything else.

question

I recently bought the rapid box and the reflector plate. I'm a little confused regarding the setup though. The picture on the B&H website has the reflector plate with the inside facing the flash while the Westcott website has it set up with the inside facing away from the flash (unfortunately I already removed the sticker on the reflector plate. Can anyone please help clarify? Thank you in advance!
Asked by: Michael K.
This is directly from Westcott: What does the deflector plate do? The deflector plate will create a beauty dish effect. The lighting will still be very soft on your subjects face, however the shadows will show a bit more contrast. Which way does the Deflector Plate go? The difference is minimal whether you place the deflector plate with the textured side in or out. We recommend to put the deflector plate on with the textured side facing out so your flash doesnt have to work as hard. You will notice harder shadows no matter which way the deflector plate faces.

question

Hi team, I was just wondering what flash zoom would work better with deflector plate? Wide ie 24mm or something like 100mm, for better flash power output and filling up the whole rapid box with light. Thank you
Asked by: MIKHAIL I.
Agree, longer is probably better for most, but with my darker skin subjects trial and error always saves the day, unless Im shooting film.

question

Is it the same deflector plate regardless of size of the Rapid Box?
Asked by: Allen
I'n not an expert, but I would say that the deflector plate is just the one size because the reflector is built for a Speedlight-sized flash (and not a big studio flash)and only a small Speedlight-sized unit will fit through the hole. Remember also that you can always use the Rapid Box without a deflector at all, but the light is not as dispersed and might cause a hot spot. Hope this helps.

question

Will 2 Profoto A1's work with this...
Asked by: Kevin
The A1s will not work with this particular one. The back of the box is cut out specifically for a flash head to go into. The deflecrornplate actually screws into the inside of the box at the top.... thinknof the deflector plate as something that would go inside of an umbrella but at the very top of the inside FYI this box is amazing just with flash
