| Westcott Rapid Box Octa reviewed |
I have been looking for a portable flash system that I can easily transport on assignments when I have to fly to location. As such, I have been building up an inventory of Nissan and Canon shoe-mount strobes, some with modifiers like the Lumiquest box. I wanted something that came closer to studio lighting so I bought the Wescott Rapid Box Octa. My first impression is that this is well made gear that will serve well in the field. It opens like an umbrella, and the diffusion panel fits perfectly. An accessory reflector disc is available to further soften the light or to use as an umbrella without the panel. The reflector screws into place in front of the flash head to bounce the light back off the reflective surface.
