    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 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 12x55 is perfect for 3/4 length portraits up to full body. It provides a long strip highlight for your product photography.  Flipped horizontally, automotive photographers use these as precision kickers.

    Optional Honeycomb Grid

    Add even more control by purchasing the optional 12x55" 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.

    Liked so much I bought more!

    After getting a couple as a test, I had to come back for more. These fit the bill perfectly.

    Absolute game changer for volume

    We have stuck with bounce umbrellas for the last 40 years. This is finally changing due to how incredibly easy these are to set up on site. No more pinched fingers, no more trying to reach in and figure out how to get the ring onto the shaft, no more thinking it will get broken by people who don't know how to close it, no more worries in general with this softbox. Pictures have dramatically improved and the photographers are happier while setup time remains the same.
