Product Details

The Apollo Orb is the first octagonal softbox that doesn't require an adapter ring. Simply open like an umbrella, place the light inside and attach the included diffusion panel. Designed specifically with a deeper profile, light is evenly projected for maximum output

This round octagonal shaped unit simulate the look of natural sunlight by providing a round catch light in subject's eyes. Get the light of a soft box with the ease of an umbrella.

No additional parts and pieces to lug around as these units simply open up just like an umbrella and set up in seconds making them perfect for any on-location photographer.

Face the light forward through the white diffusion front for specular highlights. Specular highlights will provide a "hot spot" on your subject with a greater fall off from highlights to shadows. Point your flash towards the back of the Apollo Orb for a bounce light source. This will offer an even light spread of less than 1/2-stop light loss from center to edge.

Diffusion fabrics are pure in color so the color temperature going into the fabric is the same color temperature coming back out.

The Functional Modifier

The Apollo softbox series takes both speedlites and strobes instantly. Mount the Halo and Apollo with any stand, bracket, or light head that features an umbrella receptacle. No speed or adapter rings are necessary. Face light source forward for specular highlights or backward for a soft illumination.

Complete Control

The Apollo and Halo are manufactured with a highly-reflective silver interior, providing an optimum light output. This light output can be precisely focused by the photographer. Place your speedlite or strobe as close or as far from the back of the Apollo as you see fit. Experiment with the placement of the diffusion panel or pick up a Triple Threat for multiple speedlite use. The Apollo gives you the ultimate control over your lighting.
