Enjoy both beauty dish and octa softbox lighting effects with Firefly XL
Firefly XL is an innovative light modifier with which one can truly enjoy both beauty dish and octa softbox lighting effects. Thanks to umbrella mounted mechanism, it takes no more than a minute to assemble.
Traditionally the Beauty Dish and Octa Softboxes are some for the most loved light modifiers for use in portrait photography. The Beauty Dish is not only a punchy main light source but it also creates a nice round catchlight in the eyes. It provides a dramatic look that contains deeper shadows than a standard softbox. The octa Softbox in contrast, provides a softer light source that is more flattering and hence produces softer shadows. It creates a light that wraps around the subject producing excellent detail in shadow areas and is ideal for main or fill light.
♦ Beauty Dish
The DFS 20 Silver Deflector Ø20cm, mounts on to the centre pole, bouncing light back into the inside of the softbox therefore eliminating a potential hot spot. It is quick and easy to set up and has an embossed surface for even reflection.
♦ Removal of Extension Rod
The center pole of Firefly XL is completed with an extension rod which the user can remove or use to create different lighting effects. Screw the extension rod off for removal then a deflector mounts closer to the light
♦ Octa Softbox
An inner and outer diffuser are included in the Firefly XL that provide a double diffused light due to the face that the light bounces of the diffusers back into the softbox and then out through the diffusers again on to the subject. This quality of light provides an excellent fill light for outdoor portraiture.
♦ Easy Assembly and Pack Up
The design of the Firefly XL is incredibly user friendly. The umbrella mechanism makes assembling and packing up really easy. There are no more hassles with rods and speed rings. The very action of opening an umbrella is all one needs to perform to set up the Firefly XL.
Packing up is just as easy. For quick and easy packing, a zipper opening is positioned near the adaptor ring. Just place your hand through the opening provided and pull the rod. It is that easy!
