The Westcott softbox is rated one of the best in the industry for high-quality components and rugged design. The durable shell and double layer heat-shield fabric offer heat resistance up to 500 watts.
Solid steel assembly rod.
Soft box rods are designed to flex and are constructed from solid steel.
Tent-style heat vents allow for additional ventilation when used with hot lights. However, the heat vents are not required to be used when using hot lights. They are only optional as the fabric shell is designed to withstand the rated maximum wattage.
The weakest area of a softbox are the corners where the rods are placed. Therefore, Westcott provides a double layer of loop tape over this section to protect against softbox rods protruding through the fabric.
We are so confident in the construction of our softboxes, we back them with a five-year warranty.
Removable inner baffle.
The removable full stop inner baffle helps to soften and spread the light when used in conjunction with strobes and hot lights. (NOTE! When using fluorescents, we recommend this inner baffle is completely removed. Due to the diffuse nature of the fluorescent lamp itself, it is not needed to achieve even and diffused lighting and many times can flatten the light too much.
Removable outer diffusion.
Front diffusion panel is fully removable.
Included carry case.
Each softbox includes a carry case with handle strap.
The larger the light source, in relation to the subject, the softer the light becomes. Soft light reduces contrast, conceals skin blemishes, and softens the edges of the shadows.
