Fits a variety of studio lights.
The Octabank is designed to work with virtually all studio lights through the wide range of Westcott adapter rings.

Less than 1/2-Stop light loss.
The custom-designed internal baffle eliminates hot spots with less than 1/2-stop light loss from center to edge. When combined with the front diffusion panel, you obtain soft and beautiful diffused light that is excellent for full body shots and fashion

Circular design.
This circular design provides a light source that is as wide as it is tall.

Narrow profile.

Quality Construction featured on a Westcott Pro Softbox

Built to Last

With over 20 years of experience developing photography lighting modifiers, Westcott has maintained a commitment to using quality materials and superior construction. These quality components include solid steel assembly rods, dual-layered corners, heat shield fabric, and tent-style vents. This confidence in quality is supported by 5 and 7 year warranties on all Westcott Pro and Pro Signature Softboxes.

Take the Heat

All Westcott Pro softboxes, strips, and octabanks are rated for use at up to 1000-watts. The reflective silver and white fabrics that line these modifiers not only produces an optimum light output, but also serves as a double-layer of heat resistance. Tent-style heat vents are also included in the body of these professional modifiers, providing extra heat ventilation and protection throughout long shoots.

Pure-Color Diffusers

Westcott softbox diffusers and inner-baffles are constructed with an all-natural, unbleached nylon fabric. Unlike processed diffusion fabrics, these professional panels will soften your light source, without changing its color temperature. Diffusion panels are available in full, half, and quarter stops.

The Perfect Pair

For superior lighting, pair any Westcott Pro softbox with the Spiderlite TD6. The Spiderlite TD series of continuous lighting is amongst the most popular daylight or tungsten lighting on the market. Featuring a 1200 effective-watt output, the power of the Spiderlite TD6 is brilliantly softened, directed, and modified by any Westcott Pro Softbox. Pairing these two powerhouse products together is also cost effective. With a built-in adapter, the Spiderlite TD6 does not require additional components or speedrings to partner with any Pro Softbox. Three inclusive kits are also available featuring both the Spiderlite TD6 and a Westcott softbox.

Wide Variety

Westcott Pro Softboxes are available in a large array of styles and sizes. Ranging from 12” x 16” to 54” x 72” options, softboxes are available in both standard or shallow versions. Standard stripbanks, asymmetrical stripbanks, and octabanks are also available, featuring the same quality materials and construction. All Westcott Pro modifiers include a carry case for storage and travel.

Unique Design

Westcott softboxes are not designed to be industry standards, but to be light specific. Each Pro Softbox is manufactured to maximize specific light quality and projection. Standard Pro Softboxes are developed for strobe photographers with a deep profile allowing for even light output of less than 1/2 stop from center to edge. Shallow Pro Softboxes cater to continuous fluorescent photographers, featuring a narrow profile for maximized output.
