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.

This complete kit includes the Apollo Orb, all-metal adjustable shoe mount bracket and lightweight 8' light stand. 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 Ultimate in Convenience

Meet the Apollo and the Halo, the best-selling speedlite and studio light modifiers available. These modifiers, unlike other softboxes, are constructed with an umbrella-style frame, allowing for the quickest assembly and disassembly possible. Utilizing fiberglass frames, they are both durable and extremely lightweight for effortless portability.

25 Years in the Making

First developed over 25 years ago, the Apollo is consistently improved with current technology and materials, all based on consumer input and requests. The latest Apollo design features a recessed edge for the ultimate light control, a flexible fiberglass frame, and a removable outer diffusion panel.

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.
