About Glow

This larger version of the Glow Softbox Octo - R Series is an optimal tool for mastering all location situations where quality counts by imitating natural 'north-light'. The 60" Octobox combines the strength of a portrait key light while acting as a soft wrap, blending perfectly with additional fill soft lights.

The most popular uses of this size Octobox shape are for full length fashion, portrait, and beauty photography. The exceptional even coverage handles larger groups and objects.
The highlight /shadow ratio is optimized with a concentrated focus of illumination from the special bowl reflector, reverse umbrella design. There is exceptional light efficiency in this design and the flattering results reveal human form with grace and warmth.

Glow Softbox Octo materials and construction are superior. The critical ingredients in any softbox are the internal reflective fabric, the front diffuser/baffle and the shape of the box. Super strength silvered grid fabric finely line the interior surfaces of the box and add a crisp quality to the output.

Every Glow - R Series product features removable double diffusors. Light spread is extremely even, pleasing and contrast balanced. Reinforced support rod pockets, seams and Velcro closures make assembly and setup trouble-free.

Works great

Used as a background for headshots. Pros: Its size. Great for headshots. It is lightweight and easy to set up. The light produced by this octa is even edge to edge. It is easy to break down and stores well when not in use. Cons: Feels a bit flimsy but again, I have not had any issues with it yet. I would definatly buy this brand again.

Can't Say Enough Good

It seems that Adorama has really upped it's game with it's "GLOW" product line if this softbox is any indication. I like their flashpoint line it was an economical way to get the product you needed even if the quality wasn't at the very top rung so to speak. Flash point like the other "cheaper brands" (you know the ones) did the job but you couldn't expect top tier construction for the price you were paying, but it worked. Wow their flashpoint "GLOW" line kind of reminds me of the Costco way of doing business. The item is not necessarily the cheapest in price but it's quality is equal or better then the very best you can buy at a price point that is just slightly more then the bottom rung products. Sorry this is long I don't ordinarily like writing reviews but this impressed me so much I had to pass it along My box came with a carrying case, the fabric was tough unlike the **L one I had bought that was paper thin and tore easily when touched. This is a very sturdy softbox, it's huge it gives a beautiful soft light that flatters my subjects. I'm sold on the GLOW line and now waiting for the GLOW umbrellas, I decided to go with them over Photogenics which are very good, but the GLOW was cheaper and if like the softbox will proabably be of equal quality, way to go Adorama!

I love this softbox. It is exactly what I was looking for in my daily use for portrait lighting. It gives off very even, soft light. I had no trouble putting it together, even though I anticipated that I would. It is a bit cumbersome at first, but once you get the first few rods in, it's pretty easy to get the rest going. Just put the rods in opposite of one-another, as you go, and you're all set. You do need to order your speedring separately, as with all softboxes (speedring must match your monolight brand). You'll need a suffient-sized studio space for this, but I would highly recommend it for the price. It is not quite the quality of my Photoflex boxes but still very nice. The only minor issue I had is that the front diffusion panel seemed a bit too small, so it took several tries to get it to fit well. But, since it's velcro, you just pull it up and adjust until you get a good fit. Overall, this is a wonderful addition to my assortment.
