The Collapsible Octagonal Softbox for LED Bulbs with Socket from Raya is constructed from a translucent white nylon fabric that provides a soft, diffused light for photo and video shoots. It minimizes hot spots, softens shadows, and creates a wraparound light that’s great for shooting closeup portraits and product photography. The integrated silver reflector panel amplifies light output and adds a kick of specularity . The softbox can be used with or without the included, removable shower cap front diffuser for creating a variety of looks.
The OSCB-70 softbox is made for LED bulbs up to 45 watts that have an Edison E27 base, so common LED bulbs can be used, in addition to LEDs that are made specifically for photography and videography. Since LED bulbs run cool, there’s no need for internal noisy fans, so this softbox can be used to light scenes when shooting dialog. Since LED blubs operate without generating heat, this softbox can be positioned close to bathe your subject in diffused light without worrying about overheating issues. This softbox opens like an umbrella for quick setup that will have you shooting in minutes, and it collapses down to 23″ so it’s perfect for travel. The umbrella-style mechanism snaps open and stretches the fabric for an even and uniform light. It closes just as quickly, so you can pack up quickly to move to your next location.
Just open the softbox, screw in the LED bulb, and plug in the power cord. That’s all the setup that’s needed. The inline power switch lets the light be operated from a few feet away, so it can be turned on or off from behind the camera. The integrated tilt bracket has a two-way 5/8″ receiver that’s compatible with most light stands. The tilt bracket makes it easy to aim your light, and the two-way receiver provides additional mounting options, like using a boom arm to light a product from above or moving the softbox close to a subject.
