About Westcott

The Westcott Rapid Box (26" Octa) is a durable, complete All-in-One system that's perfect for on-location photography. It is compatible with virtually all shoe mounted flashes. Constructed of solid aluminum the Rapid Box is lightweight yet maintains durability. Travel easy with the umbrella style system that allows on-the-go photographers to quickly open and close the unit, while the shallow depth offers use in tight or small spaces. A silver reflector is sewn into the back of the diffusion panel to reduce the hot spot, providing even lighting output from edge to edge. Durable carry case with shoulder strap is included for simple transportation and storage.

I just received my 26" Octa softbox this past weekend. Really excited to take some photographs with it. The Build quality is Very Nice this is very important because i was on vacation this past summer out of the country and i had a portable softbox and it Failed miserably needless to say i looked unprofessional. NOW i can go on a shoot and feel confident and look like a Pro and shoot like a Pro with my New Rapid Box 26" Thanks Westcott. OHHHHH One last thing!! Don't forget to get the addition...

Excellent

By

from Tuscaloosa Alabama  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Excellent wrap around light. Works well with remote triggers like pocket wizard. At 26 inches I thought the light source maybe too small but it mimics larger in studio modifiers but portable.

Better than I expected

By

from Stafford, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Haven't had this long and have not used it in every clime and place, but so far I love it. Used it with my 600EX speedlite and Canon 7D. On a light stand, it lets me get the light off camera, provides superb soft light that can model the subject. Well made and easy to set up. This is one of those things that really "delights the customer." I'd buy it again and would recommend it to anyone wanting to more fully use their flash.

Dynamite in a small package!

By

from Northern Utah  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Great for location shooting.Light weight very easy to move around. Throws a lot of light.Even better when paired with 24 x 10 Rapid Box Strip. This also works very well if you have a small studio. Add the Rapid Box Deflector Plate to eliminate hot spots in the box.

Best Octa Softbox

By

from Tampa, FL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Compact, good construction, portable and works great. I just wish that it was a little bigger, maybe 32inches.

Beautiful Soft Light

By

from Hilo, HI  -  Photo Enthusiast

A must-have accessory for anyone shooting with speedlites and seeking that soft light in a portable package. The 26 inch RB is great for head shots and small product or food photography. The optional deflector plate turns this into a nice beauty dish substitute and eliminates any hot spot issues when using the RB in a tabletop setup.

A portrait must

By

from Jackson Heights, NY  -  Casual Photographer

It's easy to assemble and disassemble for easy packing. Does not take up space which is excellent for where I'm living. Lightweight and durable, couldn't ask for anything more.

Planning to purchase several more rapid!

By

from Shreveport,la.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This product is a part of my new portable studio, which has been compiled with stands,pocket wizard's minis and flex tt5s, and my own camera speedlites. Works like a drean! I cannot tell you how pleased I am with it. I tested the rapid box on my daughter, who is a hair and make-up stylist, and she liked the photos so much, that she wants to use them in her businesss's advertizing campaign.
