The Westcott 5' Octabank is one of an enhanced line of modifiers that perform as admirably as their standard softboxes do, but are also fabricated with structural integrity that, as their 10-year warranty attests, is up to the challenge of years of use. Since longevity is key to the softbox's construction, Westcott uses solid steel rods and extended rod sleeves with reinforced pockets for a tight, smooth fit. Although not made specifically for hot lights, the use of heavy-duty fabrics backed by double-layer heat-resistant technology allows the Octabank to withstand up to 1000W. To support this type of use, tent-like vents are installed in the body of the modifier to dissipate heat. The 5' Octabank is a good choice for full length portraiture, fashion, or large sets. The very large surface area of the softbox makes it a candidate for single light shooting and gives its output a wraparound quality and a painterly look especially when used close up. Another benefit is the reflection of natural-looking catchlights in your subject's eyes. The Octabank's reflective interior maximizes your light source's output while the removable front diffuser softens it and produces a flattering quality of light. The diffuser has been thoroughly tested and found to be totally free of color cast.
