Westcott 36-Inch Octa-M Rapid Box Switch Softbox

The Westcott Rapid Box Octa-M Switch Softboxes are large collapsible softboxes with reflective silver interiors and diffusion panels for modifying speedlites or strobes. Octagonal modifiers are ideal for photographing people. Due to their round shape, Rapid Box Octa softboxes leave a natural, more appealing catch light in your subject's eyes. These modifiers are a perfect key light for portraits.

The Softbox That Changes With You

With interchangeable light mount inserts, the Rapid Box Switch is designed for use with the most popular strobes, speedlites, and monolights. The 9 unique sizes and shapes with new 1x4, 2x3, and 3x4 options allows you to choose your Switch modifier while the 13 quick-release interchangeable light mount options allows you to choose your Switch Insert.

Designed for Portability

Constructed with solid aluminum umbrella-inspired framework, the design of the Rapid Box Switch maximizes durability, minimizes weight, eliminates the need for separate support rods, and makes setup a breeze. Everything is simple, quick, and compact. After your shoot, the Rapid Box Switch breaks down instantly into a sleek carry case for travel and storage.

An Ingenious Light Modifier

Pairing durable fabrics with a quick-collapse frame, Westcott's Rapid Box Switch softboxes offer the professional light modification that you're looking for without the tedious setup.

Premium Diffusion Fabric

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

The Must-Have Accessory

The optional Deflector Plate minimizes hot spots and creates a stunning beauty-style light output. These plates are easy to use with all Rapid Box softboxes.

Rear-Mounted Lights

Westcott purposely designed the Rapid Box Switch with an external mount. By keeping your speedlight or strobe outside of the softbox, you can quickly access controls and utilize the line-of-sight (or optical wireless) functionality. Of course, radio triggers can be used as well.

Heavy-Duty Mounts for the Most Popular Lights

Switch Inserts attach your light source to any Rapid Box Switch light modifier in an instant. This durable all-metal adapter slides quickly into the rear tabs of your Rapid Box Switch and secures in place with the thumb-lock.
