The convenience of an umbrella meets the control of a softbox. Built on an umbrella frame, the Apollo light modifiers set up in seconds. 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. While most softboxes require expensive and heavy adapter rings to properly set up, these units simply fit into the umbrella receptacle found on virtually all style studio lights.
The Apollo light modifier is a perfect pair with speedlites offering soft box control with the set up ease of an umbrella. An optional 5015 Shoe Mount bracket is required to mount the speedlite and Apollo onto a light stand with full tilting capability. No need for an adapter ring as virtually all style studio lights come standard with an umbrella receptacle to attach the Apollo light modifier.
The included shoe mount bracket is adjustable providing a perfect fit with your speedlite. All-metal construction provides the ultimate in quality and mount the included adjustable shoe mount bracket directly to any standard 5/8" light stand. Lock into place by tightening the turn knob. No plastic to easily break on our shoe mount bracket as the tilt locking washer is constructed from solid metal. Compare this to many plastic washers more commonly found on market.
