The WhiteDome nxt: medium soft box is a versatile lighting solution designed for use with hot lights and strobes up to 2,000 watts. The unique, white/translucent design of the soft box produces soft, nearly shadowless lighting. The WhiteDome nxt is an ideal soft box for lighting on video, film and large sets.
The light spread of the WhiteDome nxt is unlike any other soft box as the light emits through the face as well as the sides due to the translucent fabric. However, when this is not a feature you wish to take advantage of, you can secure one, two, three or four black side panels to the WhiteDome nxt to preventunwanted light spill and to manage the direction of your light. These four Velcro panels also provide the opportunity to experiment with your lighting. This soft box can be used in so many different ways! The internal baffle eliminates extreme highlights and hot spots for even, natural lighting
Great lighting solution for architectural photography.
Can also be used with strobe lights.
Connector required, sold separately
The WhiteDome nxt is made with our proprietary DuraCloth fabric. The removable panels feature our BrimStone silver interior fabric. The WhiteDome nxt can withstand up to 400° F without burning.
WhiteDome nxt: medium up to 2,000 watts
The WhiteDome nxt has two layers of diffusion in our larger soft boxes. (medium and large) to keep the light smooth and even, as well as to prevent hot spots from showing up in reflectors. This allows you to increase the contrast of your light for a variety of applications. The removable baffle is suspended in the middle of the WhiteDome nxt also allowing you the option to create soft, diffused buttery light or high contrast light.
The face is about 1-stop loss. We also have new quarter and half-stop face accessories that attach to the recessed front of the soft box adding to your diffusion options. The recessed face has two inches of Velcro, which allows for the addition of grids.
Our baffle clips ensure that the internal baffle stays attached no matter how many times you open and close the soft box. And the elastic hoops of the baffle that the clips lock into keep the baffle taut and flat.
Our rods are strong and resilient--able to maintain the taut shape of a soft box, yet flexible enough to angle easily into connectors. All rods on our soft boxes are replaceable.
We've designed our back closure with Velcro tabs to secure tightly around the light source. This keeps the light from leaking out the back of your soft box, which does two things: first, you lose power and second, you have stray light in your studio that could bounce off a wall and be detrimental to the desired lighting affect on your set.

I find it a very versatile piece of light modifying equipment. I use it a lot for indoor architectural shoots and larger groups. A little more directive than umbrellas and often small enough to be used in tight situations. I have had two small units for about a decade now. I am disappointed they have discontinued the smallest and largest units.
