This little plate gives at least 3 more looks to a soft light box. Each look you add is another tool in your kit. Every client wants to know their purchase was something unique worthy of hiring a pro.

I am using mine in a 12 x 36 Westcott Rapid Box strip box. It does a great job diffusing the light in product photography.

Adding this plate to my octabox really makes a difference. I use it for headshots and photobooths and this extra addition was exactly what I needed to smoothen out the strobe and utilize the full softness of the light that the Rapid box can offer!

I would buy this again

Easy to set up, it provides an increased performance in lighting when using the XL octabox. I really like how the soft light illuminates the subject when using this deflector plate.

I bought this as a nice addition to my Rapid Box Octa XXL. I now do have a huge size beauty dish. Obviously very easy add-on!

Must have accessory for Rapid Box

I just think that you are nuts not to buy this accessory for the Rapid Box Octa XL and XXL. The light deflected off the plate spreads so nicely out of the box.

question

What size bolt is that?
Asked by: Anonymous
I'm not sure what you call the bolt but the center rod adapter which accepts a screw to attach the beauty dish disc to the rapid Box is approx. 1 1/16 long including the threads, approx. 15/32 dim., approx. 11/16 non thread portion. The screw is approx. 3/16 dim. The center rod adapter and screw seem to be for Westcott devices only.
