Product Description

The narrow profile of Wescott's 16 x 30" Apollo Strip Softbox makes it an ideal rim, hair light or accent light. The recessed front edge of the box provides a degree of directionality that can be intensified with the included 40-degree fabric grid, which narrows the beam spread while eliminating spill light.

The output remains soft and flattering with the type of control you'd normally get from a reflector. Alternatively, if you need a harder light simply remove the front diffuser. Since the Apollo Strip is built on an umbrella frame, it provides for quick setup and equally quick break-down. The Apollo Strip mounts vertically or horizontally to suit your subject.

Narrow Profile

The Apollo Strip was designed with a narrow 16 x 30" profile. This modifier is an ideal hair light or rim light, allowing you to focus your light source on a defined area. For even further light control, pair this modifier with the included fabric grid.

Dual Stand Mounting Options

The Apollo Strip features two built-in zippered entry points. These allow for precise mounting of your Apollo Strip, either horizontally or vertically. After mounting, this opening can be zipped tight around your stand to eliminate any spill light.

Designed for On-The-Go Photographers

With flexible framework and instant umbrella-style setup, this softbox is designed for busy photographers. Each Apollo softbox packs up quickly and can be thrown into any gear bag for effortless travel and storage.

For Speedlites and Strobes

Thanks to the Apollo's versatile umbrella shaft, this modifier can be instantly paired with both speedlites and strobes. With Apollo Strip, you won't be confined to using a single lighting style or forced into buying several modifiers.

No Speedrings and Rods

Unlike most softboxes, this modifier is constructed with an umbrella-style frame. Not only does this allow for the instant assembly, but it also allows for quick strobe mounting without bulky speedrings or adapters.

Equipped with the Latest Technology

Since their introduction in 1985, these umbrella-style softboxes have been enhanced based upon consumer requests. The latest Apollo design features a recessed edge, flexible fiberglass frame, and removable outer diffusion panel.

Premium Diffusion Fabric

Westcott diffusion panels are constructed with a premium, all-natural unbleached nylon fabric. Unlike processed diffusion fabrics, these diffusers will soften your light source without altering its color temperature.

Direct and Soften Light

By directing your light source toward the Apollo's included front diffuser, you'll create highlights with a subtle hot spot. By directing your unit towards the back of Apollo, you'll create an even spread of light with softer shadows.

Maximize Output

Apollo softboxes are manufactured with a highly-reflective silver interior for optimized light output.

Uncompromising Light Control

The included fabric grids are made up of cells that control off-axis light in 4 directions while still maintaining the soft quality you want from a large light source. By focusing light through a grid, you eliminate both light spill and lens flare simultaneously for precise illumination.

The Hair Light Perfected with Grids

By allowing you to precisely focus your light source on a defined area, grids are the essential accessory for your hair light or rim light. When modified with a grid and softbox, your light can illuminate your subject from behind without light spilling onto your backdrop to gain dimension and depth in your portraiture.

The Science Behind the 40-Degree Grid

A 40-degree grid is the most popular choice for photographers and filmmakers, allowing for precise light control with limited loss of light. Light loss at the center axis is minimal, even at a distance 3 to 4 times the diagonal of the softbox. This typically results in losing less than 1/4-stop.

Instant Placement

Westcott's 40-degree grids easily attach to the front of the Apollo Strip with strong touch-fastener material thanks to the softbox's recessed edge. giving you the ability to use your diffusion panel and 40-degree grid simultaneously.

Ideal for Travel

The soft, compact grid collapses down instantly for streamlined travel and storage in its included bag.
