The Medium Standard Skylite Rapid Kit from Lastolite is built around a lightweight but sturdy 3.6 x 6.6' 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.

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.

question

Can anyone tell me what the diffusion material is made of, and if it's truly 1.25 stops? I ordered the Fotodiox scrim kit, but it's going back. The diffusion material is a crunchy plastic. I didn't expect china silk, but I could have made this with some Hefty bags...
Asked by: William C.
I haven't tested actual stops but material is definitely not crunchy plastic feeling, it is quite smooth and overall a joy to use.

question

The item description says clip-on light modifiers but the image shows sleeved light modifiers. I want the clips. Which is correct?
Asked by: Benjamin P.
Thanks for all the quick replies everyone. It seems like this system solves some of the problems that I have with Scrim Jims (Velcro wears out) and Sun Bounce (fabric sleeves tear at the corners).

question

What is the diameter of the tube frame? Will it fit in a Matthews Hollywood Grip head?
Asked by: Marc B.
I tried our Matthews grips out first, but found that to adequately tighten onto the Lastolite frame meant the Matthews grip was tightening down at an angle that then made it quite difficult to release. It also made me nervous that the Matthews grip would strip out with repeated use this way. I decided to buy Lastolite's own grip clamps for this light panel and found them to work much better for me.
