DoPchoice has introduced new light softening Snapbags to enhance the ARRI SkyPanel S360 and S30 lighting fixtures.
DoPchoice said for the ARRI SkyPanel S360 there is the 6x6-foot Snapbag softbox. Customized for fit, it is lightweight and packs up small for transport. Set up is fast due to its integral snap up frame. No speed ring or overhead frame is needed. Because it mounts directly to the SkyPanel S360, there’s no set-cluttering stand required to hold the Snapbag. It weighs 12.7 pounds.
Like all DoPchoice Snapbags, it employs a special reflective fabric to intensify light output. In addition, a front diffusion panel swiftly attaches right on the front for extremely even light distribution.
The octagonal-shaped Octa 4 Snapbag is designed for the SkyPanel S30. This four-foot diameter space-saver attaches directly to the front of the S30 using DoPchoice’s Rabbit-Ears Mini quick mounting system, cutting out an extra stand.
Due to its fabrics and geometric shape, light output is enhanced, yet soft and pleasing. It may be used with or without the included front diffusion panel. It weighs 8.37 pounds. Octa 4 is a go-anywhere companion for the SkyPanel S30.
