    Game Changing Design

    The Strobepro Rapid Snap softboxes were designed with portability, weight, and speed in mind. It folds flat and sets up in a snap! Compared to umbrella-style softboxes, the Rapid Snap takes up half the space in your bag, weighs at least 25% less, and still sets up in seconds. These are the most versatile and portable softboxes on the market.

    Fastest, Easiest Setup Ever

    Just fan out the rods, and snap the speedring mount together. That's it.

    Huge Space Savings

    The unique snap mechanism allows the speedring mount to fold in half while not in use. Its packaged size 50% thinner than our Rapid Pro softboxes! You can fit twice as many softboxes in your Ultimate Kit Bag, checked luggage or vehicle.

    It's A Lean, Mean, Light Shaping Machine

    The new mechanism allows us to remove all the inner support structure found in our Rapid Pro softboxes, which saves about 25% of the total weight.  Your assistant should complain 25% less about carrying them.

    No Inner Mechanism

    Without umbrella rods to get in the way, the Rapid Snap Softbox can be easily gelled, and you can depend on an unobstructed projection even when the inner diffuser is not in use.

    Multiple Speedring Choices

    The speedring is user changeable to any of the most popular strobe mounts.  Bowens (Strobepro), Profoto, Elinchrom, Alien Bee (Einstein) and even Godox speedrings are available.  Just loosen two screws and slide in the new speedring.

    Your Time is Money

    Please tell us you're not still using softboxes with detachable rods. The first time you snap the Strobepro Rapid Snap Series together, you'll be contemplating what other revelations you could have missed in your life. 

    Why Use an Octa Softbox?

    The octagonal shape gives you a rounded catchlight in your portraits, which is typically said to look more natural. An octa also has a bit more structure than a rectangular box, which could make it the better choice for outdoor use. The 47" size gets you into some seriously soft light, and is great for full length portraits and group photography while still fitting into the basement studio.

    Optional Honeycomb Grid

    Add even more control by purchasing the optional 47" honeycomb grid.  Grids are awesome for preventing flare and directing light exactly where you want it.

    Leave The Diffusers

    Go ahead and leave your diffusers attached. They'll stay protected because there is no inner mechanism to snag it on.

    Super Slim Carrying Case

    The included carrying case is all new as well. It is flat with a zippered opening at one end.  Just slide your softbox in, zip it up, and you're good to go.

    Inner Diffuser Included

    Doubling up your diffusion ensures that light hits every part of the front diffuser as evenly as possible, but you can optionally remove the inner diffuser to squeeze out an extra stop.

    Easy to Gel

    We mentioned this already, but it deserves its own header.  Since there's no inner mechanism to worry about, your creative or correction gels can be easily taped into place.
