DoPchoice has added the Octa 7, a seven-foot diameter softbox, to its line of octagonal Snapbag Rabbit-Ears light diffusers.
DoPchoice said the new large octagonal-shaped softbox joins the smaller Octa 3 and Octa 5 to fit most LED soft lights. Each delivers smooth and even illumination across the front with or without a baffle. The larger the Octa, the softer and smoother the light output around the subject.
Like the rest of DoPchoice’s Rabbit-Ears Snapbag family, Octas pack up small and set up fast. All three models are designed to employ DoPchoice’s Rabbit-Ears system for securing the softbox to various LED light brands.
All Snapbags feature a reflective inner fabric that provides maximum light output. Even without a baffle, they deliver even illumination across the front surface. The spread of light from Octa Snapbags can be further controlled by installing a DoPchoice Snapgrid on the front.
Octa Rabbit-Ears Snapbags fit a variety of major brands of softlights. The Octa 7 weighs 6.5 pounds when installed without Rabbit-Ears.
When not in use, it folds to 31.5 x 13 x 7.8 inches. It includes a front diffuser, baffle and canvas carry bag. Setting up requires Rabbit- Ears, which are sold separately.
