The OctoDome nxt: extra small studio kit is a complete stand-alone lighting station with a StarFire ShoeMount flash and wireless capability. This kit also includes a durable LiteStand.
The small size and portability of the SoftBox allows it to be used many different ways: on a handheld camera bracket for highly mobile event shooting, on the LiteReach for off-camera mobile shooting and on a stationary LiteStand ( included) for studio type setups.
The OctoDome nxt: extra small has very different characteristics than the many other SoftBoxes in the Photoflex line, which makes it a very powerful tool for achieving a distinctive look when used alone or with other lighting products. The small size and deep profile (approx. 18 inches across and 9 inches deep) makes it perform like a traditional parabolic reflector. Thanks to its removable face and baffle, it can be used to achieve three distinct lighting styles for key and hair lighting applications: Specular (remove baffle and face), Softened (use baffle only), Diffused output (use baffle and face).
The OctoDome nxt is built with the heat resistant fabric and can be adapted, with optional speed ring, for use with the StarLite tungsten fixture with lamps up to 500 watts.

Having just started my own portrait photography business, this was one of the first, of several softboxes I purchased. After doing alot of research, I decided to buy almost exclusively photoflex products, including additional softboxes and a background stand. They are high quality products at very reasonable prices. This kit was very easy to put together and is of solid construction. The unit is versatile and I use it in studio and easily take it with me on location/outdoors. The light output is wonderful for portraiture. I would highly recommend this product. I will soon be purchasing one size up, as well. It arrived well packaged and the instructions were good. Photoflex website also includes instructions for most of their products, if you need them.
