Westcott have released the Rapid Box Switch, a new range of pop open umbrella frame softboxes, now featuring clever quick release speedring inserts.
The quick release inserts allowing users to swap very quickly between different brands of lights, and also to speedlight brackets if needed.
And this may also be a timely release, with the XPLOR 400 / AD400 PRO flash recently announced, having effectively 2 mounting systems built in. A compact mount for traveling, and larger mounts to match your other lights in the studio etc.
(Though Westcott would need to get busy on producing a Godox mini mount insert for that).
Rapid Box Switch inserts release with one simple clip, and can be swapped over in seconds.
Allowing you to swap quickly between various strobes, and even to speedlite brackets.
There are currently 9 softboxes variations available in the Rapid Box Switch range, including an updated version of the 24″ Joel Grimes Beauty Dish.
And 11 inserts for popular strobe brands, as well as 2 speedlight bracket inserts.
The fast set up Rapid Box Switch all feature durable metal umbrella framework, with removable center deflector disk.
As well as heat resistant fabric, and color neutral removable inner and outer diffuser panels.
All except for the 24″ beauty dish have a high output silver interior.
Optional 40 degree grids are also available.
The popular Joel Grimes 24″ Beauty Dish is once again part of the system,
And now sports more subtle graphics compared to the rest of the range (double thumbs up for that).
Along with the 24″ Beauty Dish, all of the Rapid Box Switch come provided with a removable center deflector disk.
As well as studio light inserts, there are also 2 adjustable speedlite bracket inserts available.
One for traditional rectangular head speedlites, and the other more suited to the round head of the Profoto A1.
