The Bowens Octo150 is a unique large soft box which offers several unique features that are particularly of advantage to portrait photographers. Unlike other large octagonal softboxes available on the market, Bowens Octoboxes feature a perfectly round front diffuser for perfectly round catch lights, which are cleaner and more pleasing than their multisided counterparts. Another difference is how your flash unit is mounted inside the Octobox, facing the rear - away from the subject. This offers two distinct advantages over traditional softboxes.
Because there are no extra layers of diffusion fabric between the light source and the front diffuser, it is a remarkably efficient softbox and can be used with a relatively small flash, such as a Gemini 500.
The other significant advantage of this design is the evenness of illumination on the front cloth. The interior silver and white surfaces have been designed to ensure optimum evenness of light.Because the light is so even, it can be used close to the subject to produce maximum softness as well as maximum light output.
Assembling the large Octo150 is easy. Simply insert the support rods into the adaptor ring then zip up the two side zips to create the octobox. At last a big softbox that can be assembled, and disassembled, quickly and easily. The Octo150 comes supplied with a travel bag for easy transportation.
