Uncompromising Light Control

Grids are made up of cells that control off-axis light in 4 directions while still maintaining the soft quality you want from a large light source. By focusing light through a grid, you eliminate both light spill and lens flare simultaneously for precise illumination.

The Hair Light Perfected

By allowing you to perfectly focus your light source on a defined area, grids are the essential accessory for your hair light or rim light. When modified with a grid and softbox, your light can illuminate your subject from behind without light spilling onto your backdrop to gain stunning dimension and depth in your portraiture.

The Science Behind 40-Degree

A 40-degree grid is the most popular choice for photographers and filmmakers, allowing for precise light control with limited loss of light. Light loss at the center axis is minimal, even at a distance 3 to 4 times the diagonal of the softbox. This typically results in losing less than 1/4-stop.

Instant Placement

Our 40-degree Grids easily attach to the front of your softbox with ultra-durable Velcro™ material Apollo softboxes are designed with a recessed edge, giving you the ability to use your diffusion panel and 40-degree grid simultaneously.

Eggcrate Grids product testimonial by George DeLoache, George DeLoache Photography

“I choose a softbox with the same care as a painter might choose their brushes. A softbox by itself is like a chef's knife, adequate and functional. The addition of a grid is like switching to a scalpel, giving you total control of the shaping of the light.”

George DeLoache, George DeLoache 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.”

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.”
