DoPchoice Introduces Light Control Accessories for Arri SkyPanel

DoPchoice has announced light control accessories to go with Arri’s new SkyPanel S120 system.

DoPchoice said the Snapbag and Snapgrid products allow control of the extensive light output of the new Arri SkyPanel S120. Both are lightweight and easy to deploy, then fold up fast for easy transport and storage.

For times when a softbox is need, the new Snapbag is engineered to fit the S120 precisely, allowing it to emit a soft light evenly across the scene, with no light leaks. The Snapbag snugly surrounds four sides of the fixture while giving open breathing room to the back.

A reflective surface within delivers more of the light output. For a softer light, the unit features a removable front diffusion panel to cover the front surface.

To direct the light, Snapgrid is a form-factor controlling grid tailored for the new Arri light. Snapgrids are self-unfolding and self-tightening and quickly attach via a hook and look strip that surrounds the front of the Snapbag.

To accommodate users who want output to be more narrowly spread vertically than horizontally, this Snapgrid is specially designed to limit the horizontal spread of the Arriv SkyPanel S120 to 60 degrees, and the vertical spread to 40 degrees. An optional 40-degree Snapgrid is also available for the Snapbag.
