Monday Modifier: Westcott Apollo Orb


Announced last week, I posted a video of the new members of the Apollo family. The Orb and The Strip. The strip I would like to see in a longer size, maybe 16"X50". The Orb seems to be just about right for the Strobist on the go. Here's some specs and a description from the great folks at Westcott:


43" Apollo Orb

The Apollo Orb is the first octagonal softbox that doesn't require an adapter ring. Simply open like an umbrella, place the light inside and attach the included diffusion panel. Designed specifically with a deeper profile, light is evenly projected for maximum output while simulating a round catch light in the eyes. Diffusion panel can be recessed for even more directional control and to prevent lens flare.
