A Versatile Light Modifier

With a 28" square construction, we designed the Medium Apollo with versatility in mind. This light modifier is large enough to act as a key light source for headshots or product images, yet small enough to act as an accent light, giving you a range of lighting options.

Designed for On-The-Go Photographers

With flexible framework and instant umbrella-style setup, these modifiers are designed for busy photographers. Each Apollo and Halo softbox packs up quickly and can be thrown into any gear bag for effortless travel and storage.

For Speedlites and Strobes

Do you shoot with both types of off-camera flash? Thanks to the Apollo and Halo’s versatile umbrella shaft, these modifiers can be instantly paired with both speedlites and strobes. With these softboxes, you won’t be confined to using a single lighting style or forced into buying various modifiers.

Say Goodbye to Speedrings and Rods

Unlike most softboxes, these modifiers are constructed with an umbrella-style frame. Not only does this allow for the instant assembly, but it also allows for quick strobe mounting without bulky speedrings or adapters.

Equipped with the Latest Technology

Since their introduction in 1985, these umbrella-style softboxes have been enhanced based upon consumer requests. The latest Apollo design features a recessed edge, flexible fiberglass frame, and removable outer diffusion panel.

Premium Diffusion Fabric

Our diffusion panels are constructed with a premium, all-natural unbleached nylon fabric. Unlike processed diffusion fabrics, these diffusers will soften your light source without altering its color temperature.

Direct and Soften Light

By directing your light source toward the Apollo’s included diffusion front, you’ll create drastic highlights with a subtle hot spot. By directing your unit towards the back of Apollo, you’ll create an even spread of light with softer shadows. You can even pick up an optional 40-degree Egg Crate Grid for more light control options.

Control Focus and Maximize Output

Apollo softboxes are manufactured with a highly-reflective silver interior for optimized light output. This output can be precisely focused by placing your light source as close or as far from the back of the Apollo to achieve the look you desire.

Apollo Medium product review by Lucas Ridley, Filmmaker

“So I have officially jumped on the 28-inch Apollo soft box band wagon!”

Lucas Ridley, Filmmaker

Apollo Medium product review by Sid Ceasar, Sid Ceasar Photography

“The 28-inch Apollo is the first light diffuser I grab for all my jobs. I love that it has baffles along the edges to control spill. It is perfect for shooting 1 or 2 people, and its very light.”

Sid Ceasar, Sid Ceasar Photography

Umbrella Softboxes product review by Erik Valind, Top Pro Photographer

“The Apollo really is an awesome modifier and a staple in my lighting kit, both for speedlights and bigger strobes. The biggest advantage is its portability. I shoot mainly on location and to be able to produce this quality of light from such a small package is wonderful. They produce a very soft and even light that I hadn’t seen before when using speedlights. That coupled with the added control of a softbox and the recessed front does wonders for eliminating spilled light allowing you to only light what you want. ”

Erik Valind, Top Pro Photographer

Umbrella Softboxes product review by Rick Sammon, Top Pro Elite Photographer

“In the field and in the studio, I love working with the Westcott Apollo. I pop my speedlite into the Apollo, and immediately have wireless softbox strobe capability. How cool is that! ”

Rick Sammon, Top Pro Elite Photographer

Umbrella Softboxes product review by Sarah Nickerson, Canada Photo Convention Blog

“We have used our fair share of cheap and flimsy light modifiers, but the Apollo felt strong and durable while still remaining lightweight. The frame is very sturdy and the soft box material is thick and of great quality.”

Sarah Nickerson, Canada Photo Convention Blog

Umbrella Softboxes product review by Sid Ceasar, Sid Ceasar Photography

“I use them on a majority of my shoots because I like the quality, control and ease of setup with them. I cherish them because they work with both my studio strobes as well as all my speedlights for my location work. And I absolutely LOVE them because unlike traditional softboxes that require speedrings, the Apollo opens and closes just like an umbrella.”

Sid Ceasar, Sid Ceasar Photography

Umbrella Softboxes product review by Justin van Leeuwen, Top Pro Photographer

“I can put one, or three speedlights in here to work indoors or outside. I love how it folds like an umbrella and travels with my light-stands perfectly.”

Justin van Leeuwen, Top Pro Photographer
