Combines the best features of Photoflex's OctoDome 3 designed for strobe lighting, and the SilverDome nxt softboxes with highly reflective, silver interiors used predominantly as lighting for digital photography and video production
OctoDome nxt has been engineered as a versatile, cost-effective lighting system for traditional and digital photography as well as digital video. Its superior quality and durability make the OctoDome nxt a much better value than cheap, low-quality products
Available both as a stand-alone softbox and as a kit, the OctoDome nxt is 3 feet(91 cm) in diameter, and its eight-paneled, silver interior and narrow profile make possible a wide range of lighting effects. Photoflex's Starlite 3200 provides 3200-degrees Kelvin of even, brilliant, and continuous tungsten lighting, with an innovative cooling design ideal for heat-sensitive subjects that would be impacted negatively by traditional hot lights
The softbox's rear-mounted light generates much more light output than a standard reflective umbrella. The entire range of Photoflex's OctoConnectors can be used, even HMI lights for constant lighting at daylight temperatures.
removable, recessed front diffusion panel allows the use of grids, and lets users switch easily from high- to low-contrast lighting. The removable interior baffle eliminates hotspots, while a removable rear cowling allows air flow for additional cooling of the softbox interior. Sturdy, all-steel suspension rods feature aluminum bullet tips at both ends.
OctoDome nxt's proprietary Brimstone black exterior features a thick, light-tight fabric that's heat-resistant and extremely durable. Its shallow profile allows users to work comfortably even in tight spaces, and it sets up and tears down quickly for both studio and on-location use. The softbox also comes with an instructional CD with assembly information and lessons that use photo-by-photo setups to help users maximize the product's capabilities and take better photos right away.
