Phottix have added a new 100cm Deep Octa, Strip Box, and Large Rectangular Softbox to their popular Luna range of Folding Softboxes.
The Luna softboxes feature a strong internal fiberglass support frame, which also allows the softbox to pop open in seconds.
With octoboxes in particular this really saves a lot of time and hassle compared to assembling traditional octoboxes on location.
LUNA DEEP OCTA 100CM
The Deep Octa provides a more diffused light than regular shallow softboxes, and the 100cm diameter is a very manageable size on location and outdoors.
As well as speedlites when mounted on a Bowens mount speedlight bracket like the Phottix HS Speed Mount II.
With no obstructions in the centre of the sofbox, and flash facing directly at the front diffuser panel, the Luna Deep Octa should be very efficient with speedlites.
While the extra depth of the octa allows room for the speedlites beam to cover the front diffuser panel more evenly, providing a larger more diffused light source.
(A center cloth diffuser panel is also provided with the Luna softboxes if desired).
So the Luna Deep Octa 100cm should provide a good versatile studio and location modifier.
LUNA FOLDING STRIP & RECTANGULAR SOFTBOX
New Luna Folding Strip Box 30 x 150 cm, and Folding Softbox 80 x 120 cm are also now available. Featuring the same Luna fast set up fiberglass support frame.
The Luna Softboxes all come standard with a Bowens compatible speedring insert, though interchangeable inserts are also available for Profoto, Balcar, and Elinchrom.
Phottix Pro Beauty Dish MK II 42cm (16″)
Phottix have also released the Phottix Pro Beauty Dish MK II, in 42cm (16″) diameter.
The MK II beauty dish features a soft white interior, and comes with honeycomb grid and cloth diffuser cover.
A Bowens’s compatible insert mount is provided with the Pro Beauty Dish, though inserts are also interchangeable, and compatible with the Luna softbox inserts above.
