Westcott has enhanced the already popular Apollo product line by building the frame with fiberglass ribs. The fiberglass ribs provides added durability for those on-location situations and windy days!
The 16" x 30" Apollo Strip provides complete control with the convenience of being built on an umbrella frame for quick setup and tear down. Its narrow profile makes it an ideal rim, hair light or accent light. Designed with a recessed front edge, light is even and directional. Mounting options of either vertical or horizontal provide extreme flexibility. Secure virtually all speedlites or hot shoe mount flash units to the included light stand with the adjustable shoe mount bracket.

I bought not only the strip light but the square and star-shaped kits. I am very impressed by the portability and ease of use with the kits. Everything needed is included with the kit, just pop in the speedlight and you are ready to go. I use these outdoors for just about every shoot I do. Be prepared to anchor them down though as just a little wind will cause these to tip over. These are very portable and I can carry everything I need in a shoulder bag to the photo shoot. The umbrellas seem just a little flimsy but I haven't used them enough to break one yet!
Excellent Softbox for Headshots. The 16x30 is very flexable and allows many possibilities. An excellent addition. I would pick this up if its your 1st Softbox or if your looking to add a second Softbox for Portraits. For the price you get a Softbox,Stand,Durable metal mounting bracket. Can't beat it!
