DIFFUSERS INCLUDED - Attaching the diffuser (included) is quick and hassle free. With the diffuser in place, the light emitted will be much softer, giving similar effects to a softbox. Simply place the diffuser around the softbox to create softer light within seconds. FOLDABLE AND PORTABLE - When folded, this octa softbox fits neatly and securely inside the free carry transport bag.
The fabric itself is far thicker and denser than the typical soft boxes, improving life expectancy and preventing light leakage. INCLUDES EVERYTHING YOU NEED, STRAIGHT OUT THE BOX - In order to use this folding beauty dish straight out the box, we give you everything you need to get started, with the folding octa soft box itself, inner and outer UV coated diffusers and transport carry bag. All you need to add is the light into the speed ring and you are ready to go.Softboxes are often considered to be the ideal tool for creating soft light, because they combine the soft, diffused light effect of a shoot-through umbrella with the controlled, directional (but harsher) light of a reflective umbrella. But traditional softboxes do have a major disadvantage, because, when used in the home or when they are transported, they need to be taken apart and reassembled, which can be very time consuming and sometimes difficult. The Lencarta Folding Pro softboxes completely solve this problem because they open just like an ordinary umbrella - it takes just a few seconds! Umbrella softboxes have been available for some time but most of them are incapable of producing soft light because they are designed to work like a reflective umbrella, with the flash head between the softbox and the subject, which forces them to be placed too far away for soft lighting. The Lencarta Folding Pro softboxes work in exactly the same way as conventional softboxes, so they can be placed as close as you wish.
At 150cm, this softbox is large enough to light couples or groups and is also ideal for full length shots, and is also the perfect solution for product photography shots of reflective subjects. Because it is physically large, and requires a high ceiling for its most effective use, we do not recommend this model for use in small home studios. Each of the diffusers can also be removed, making this an extremely versatile tool that can be used without diffusers, with one diffuser or both diffusers. Another important benefit is that the front diffuser is deeply recessed, this allows the light to be feathered and also helps to prevent flare. Each of our Profold Softboxes is made in the same way, with solid steel construction and uses the same top quality wall and diffusion materials.
For a softbox to perform well, it needs to be deep, so that the light from the flash head can bounce off of the reflective walls properly, and end up with perfectly even light distribution by the time it reaches the diffusers, and the diffusers need to be made of thick material that diffuses the light properly, and this simply doesn't happen with cheap softboxes that have not been expertly designed and specified. There are other important features, found on our ProFold range, too. Both diffusers are highly resistent to yellowing with age, and they can be wiped clean if needed. The opening mechanism includes a deflector plate, this restricts the light in the centre of the softbox and directs it towards the softbox walls, which creates extremely even and consistent light quality across the entire front diffuser.
This deflector completely prevents the hotspots found on other softboxes. And the deflector does even more than this, because it allows either the inner or outer diffuser, or even both diffusers, to be removed from the softbox without creating a hotspot, and of course this makes the ProFold a much more versatile tool for creative photographers.And good softbox design isn't just about the light that goes forward, it is also about preventing light from escaping from the sides and rear of the softbox, where it is very likely to cause lens flare, reduce the contrast of your shots and spill unwanted light onto reflective surfaces such as the ceiling and walls. So, our Profold Softbox range has extra thick walls and, as the photo on the right shows, also has heavy duty fastening flaps at the rear to stop light leakage.
