  • Strobepro Rapid Snap Strip Softbox (12x55" Medium)

    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.

    Uh... wow

    I just used the 60" octobox on a shoot for the first time, and holy ****. It was set up in a matter of seconds, versus minutes. If you leave the diffuser on it is a bit of a pain to get back in the case, but that is outside the scope of the product.

    Rapid Snap 36” Octabox

    Very impressed with the quality at the price point. Easy to set up and break down. Good quality materials. Every bit of the quality as more expensive modifiers I’ve had.

    12x71" Rapid Snap Stripbox easier than I thought to set up!

    Even with its Rapid Snap design, I was expecting it would take some force to set it up, simply because of how large the softbox is. Having watched the Strobepro video on it (highly recommended before you set it up the first time!), I knew to start with the half circle mechanism facing me with the black **** facing up. I gave it a bit of a shake to reorientate the rods from their shipping position into their normal spread out position. I squeezed the two halves together and was really surprised at how easy it was (when you start out with it in the correct position).

    First time turned out to be a very pleasant surprise! But I'm not sure how long it would have taken me to get the hang of it, if I HADN'T watched the video first. So do yourself a favour. If you're looking for a large strip softbox, pick up one of these (highly recommended), and check out the video before you set it up the first time.

    Octa Softbox and speedlight flash bracket

    I purchased the rapid snap octa (Bowens mount) with a Godox speedlight flash bracket. This combination is simple and quick to set up and use (I use with Canon 580, 430, and Profoto A1). Both the rapid snap octa and the flash bracket are excellent quality.
