Softboxes are often considered to be the ideal tool for creating soft light, because they combine the soft, diffused light effect of a shoot-through umbrella with the controlled, directional (but harsher) light of a reflective umbrella.
Softboxes are often considered to be the ideal tool for creating soft light, because they combine the soft, diffused light effect of a shoot-through umbrella with the controlled, directional (but harsher) light of a reflective umbrella. But traditional softboxes do have a major disadvantage, because, when used in the home or when they are transported, they need to be taken apart and reassembled, which can be very time consuming and sometimes difficult. The Lencarta Profold softboxes completely solve this problem because they open just like an ordinary umbrella – it takes just a few seconds! Umbrella softboxes have been available for some time but most of them are incapable of producing soft light because they are designed to work like a reflective umbrella, with the flash head between the softbox and the subject, which forces them to be placed too far away for soft lighting. The Lencarta Folding Pro softboxes work in exactly the same way as conventional softboxes, so they can be placed as close as you wish.
They are of course the perfect tool for creating both highly controlled rim lighting for both portrait and fashion shots and for full length shots, for emphasising the shape in glamour shots and for creating 'window' catchlights. Our new rProfold ectangular softbox does all of this, and because it has a deeply recessed outer diffuser it is also ideal for controlling light spill, especially when using it to light the background or to feather the light.
As with all our softboxes, the speedring is fittted with a locking nut, allowing the softbox to be rotated to the exact angle needed.
By default, it will fit on Lencarta & Bowens flash heads but you can add a different speedring, to fit either Elinchrom Hensel Broncolor L Broncolor S Multiblitz V Multiblitz P Profoto
