Phottix have announced the new Raja series of quick folding softboxes, built on a speedring combined with umbrella like framework, and including a push button locking mechanism for fast and easy set up and take down.
The Raja softbox series currently comprises, 65cm and 105cm regular depth octoboxes (though using 16 ribs), and 60cm and 80cm deep octas (again with 16 ribs).
As well as one 60cm x 60cm rectangular softbox.
The 60cm and 80cm Raja deep octoboxes are said to produce a more directional light with greater contrast than traditional softboxes, and with more even illumination.
The light can then be tuned further to your needs by adding and removing one or both included diffuser panels, or fabric grid.
A 60cm x 90cm rectangular softbox will also be available in the Raja line up.
The Raja softboxes are supplied with a Bowen’s S-type speedring insert.
Though inserts for Elinchrom, Profoto, and Balcar / Paul C Buff, are also available separately.
The Raja’s umbrella framework (with steel ribs) provides very fast and easy set up and take down.
With a large push button locking mechanism being easy on your fingers.
A protective fabric carry bag is also included with the Raja softboxes.
