New DoPchoice Accessories For Creamsource Vortex8

To coincide with the release of the new Creamsource Vortex8, DoPchoice offers new versions of its Snapbag and Snapgrid light controllers to fit and complement this new lighting technology.

The accessories are manufactured by DoPchoice and TRP International. To support the Vortex8, DoPChoice offers a choice of seven softening Snapbag lightboxes. The Snapbag SBCV8 is mount directly to the Vortex8. Additionally, thanks to a newly re-designed Rabbit-Ears attachment system, mounting existing DopChoice Snapbags of all varieties has never been easier. This makes it easy to equip the Vortex8 with the Snapbag Medium, the 3’, 5’, and 7’ Octas, or the 3’ and 5’ spherical Lanterns.

The rectangular Snapbag SBCV8 pops up in a single piece and attaches directly to the light fixture with Velcro straps. Like all Snapbags the illumination is intensified with the internal reflective fabric and softened with the removable Magic Cloth diffusion panel. This is the only light box made for Vortex8 that offers DoPchoice’s pyramid baffle sewn into the center enabling the sidewalls to reflect illumination outward for even spread without hot spots. To further direct the light, a new 40-degree Snapgrid (90x60cm) mounts right to the Snapbag front in half a minute whether or not the Vortex8 dome is installed.

Octagonal-shaped Snapbags are used as a large soft source with extremely smooth output that sets up in seconds. Octas may be used open-face or with the included front diffusion panel. In addition, DoPchoice Snapgrids are available to add directional light to all Octas. The round, single-piece Snapbag Lanterns tuck away in custom black bags ready to snap up when their special glow is needed. To curb output, black/white quarter round covers may be Velcro-attached to control spill. Diffusion Cloth sets are available as spares for DoPchoice Snapbags of all types.
