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 yourUltimate 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 a Strip Sotbox
Strips provide a harder light parallel to the short edge and are excellent for emphasizing shape. They also find their place as rim lights, hair lights, and background lights. Without a grid, they can spill wide while taking up minimal space. With a grid, they become excellent precision modifiers. The 12x36 is great for headshots, upper body portraits, or as hair and shoulder light from overhead. It's also excellent for product photography since it can create a long strip highlight.
Optional Honeycomb Grid
Add even more control by purchasing the optional 12x36" 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, yourcreativeorcorrectiongels can be easily taped into place.

I use three of these strip lights in my headshot setups and these Rapid Snap soft boxes are fast to set up and tear down. I pair them with my Godox AD 300pros (also purchased at Strobepro)
Fantastic combination that has eliminated cords from the studio floor.
Really happy with this purchase.
