Lastolite Rapid overview

  • 1Description

The Small Standard Skylite Rapid Kit from Lastolite is built around a lightweight but sturdy 3.6 x 3.6' aluminum alloy frame that accepts the kit's included reversible white/silver reflector and 1.25 stop diffuser, as well as the series of clip-on light modifier accessories. The quick change fabrics clip onto the frame with a small gap between the frame and border that serves as a vent for stability in windy locations.

This Skylite Rapid Kit comes with a white fabric reflector that provides a soft neutral bounce light, and it also has a more specular silver side that yields crisp contrast and high reflectivity that comes in handy for long-throw or fashion photography. The translucent diffuser fabric can be used as an overhead scrim to tame harsh sunlight or as a 1.25-stop diffusion of a bright light source like a Fresnel. Optional fabrics are available in Black/White, Sunfire/White, Gold/Silver, 0.75 Stop Diffuser and Black Velvet, as well as a Soft Silver and Soft Gold Deflector that reflects on one side and allows diffused light through on the other. An optional grip head, floor bracket and crossbar handle are also available.

Lastolite Rapid reviews

Small Skylite Rapid Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad I bought this If you're often forced to shoot in hard light, this will really open up more opportunities for you to control the light and get some great shots. The small size is perfect for location shooting. Combined with Lastolite's grip head and a traveling light stand (weighted w/ a sandbag of course) you can even shoot solo and don't have to rely on an assistant. It's easy and fast to set up and take down, and all of it fits into a carry bag that's about the size of a snowboard bag. The only negative is that it could have been made to fold smaller, and it's rather expensive for what it is. I have folding chairs that are much more complex than this and costs much less. I'm holding back one star for the high cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vey Nice and Well Made! This is first class equipment! Light and easy to assemble. It is amazing how tight the fabric is once installed! This makes a great reflector or defuser. The BEST!
