DoPchoice Offers New Light Tools at IBC

At IBC, DoPchoice celebrated its 10th anniversary by offering new light shaping gear for the world’s top LED light fixtures. The company is offering compact and lighter weight designs that are easier to use and faster to set-up.

DoPchoice includes their take on softboxes — the Snapbag, which instantly snaps up without a complex speedring and breaks down into a small flat pouch just as fast. The Snapgrid maintains tight corners and affixes directly onto the front of a Snapbag. They also simplified soft box mounting with their family of Rabbit-Ears lightweight folding frames.

The advancements come as fast as new types and brands of lights are added to the LED lighting vocabulary. This season DoPchoice will debut a new Snapbag for up to 3 Astera Titan or AX1 Tubes. In keeping with the all-in-one lights, the Snapbag is fast to set up and offers a generous 4x2-foot surface to emit pleasing soft lighting. For Astera users who prefer a box-style softener, DoPchoice offers an adapter to use the snap-up 4x4 Snapbox with up to eight Astera Tubes.

Also premiered was the Lantern5 for Rabbit-Ears. The largest lantern or pancake-style softener on the cine market, it is a shallow 70cm. Combining it with the Rabbit-Ears attachment system allows easy deployment on low ceilings. A blackout side-cover avoids spill light, and when ready for storage, the five-foot Lantern collapses compactly into a tough, protective bag.
