DoPchoice Introduces Light Shaping Gear for Arri SkyPanel S360-C and S60

DoPchoice is introducing a Snoot for spill-light reduction, Snapgrid for light direction and Snapbox for light softening for Arri’s SkyPanel lights.

Also, DoPchoice said the octagonal-shaped Octa 5 and Octa 7, and Snapbag softboxes, are now available in more sizes to fit the Arri S60 Skypanels. The sturdy Double-Bracket gangs a pair of S60s. The accessories require no additional hardware for mounting.

The new Snapbox instantly creates a five-sided rectangular light box, giving users the opportunity to encase their light fixture. The 15-inch thick Snapbox can work with a single S360-C or more of the fixtures for a diffused light. It attaches to the front of the S360-C and comes with diffusion and blackout for light control.

Constructed of fabric, Snoots shade the camera from spill light coming off the sides of the fixture. With a Snoot, the S360-C can be placed above or beside the subject without spill light affecting the camera.

If more directed light is needed, there’s DoPchoice’s Snapgrid. Sized to fit Arri’s new light, the self-unfolding and self-tightening light controlling grid (40 degree beam angle) quickly attaches via hook and loop to the front of the Snapbox, the Snoot or to the panel itself.

In addition to light softening and directing tools, DoPchoice’s Double-Bracket made of extremely high tensile strength aluminum, gangs two S60 Skypanels together for twice the output.

As an option for producing a softer light, the Octa 5 (five foot diameter) and Octa 7 (seven foot diameter) soft boxes can house the S60 as well as smaller SkyPanel fixtures. Octas can be deployed with or without front diffusion.
