DoPchoice again comes up with a unique light control solution: this time for combining multiple Astera HydraPanel lights in one softbox. Like its sister Snapbag (SBATHY11) for one HydraPanel, the new versatile system (SBATHY41) fits from two to four Astera HydraPanels. It utilises DoPchoice’s Snapshape material which makes setup extra quick, free from hardware, and wrinkle-free. The metallic fabric interior brightens and evens the output.
The new system is the most versatile softbox yet. A single Snapbag holds 2, 3 or four HydraPanels safely and easily. It is what’s inside that makes the difference. The choice is up to the user to customise how many HydraPanels are needed for the job. Locked together in their Flexbase, they slip right into the Snapbag and lock in with hook and loop straps. For fewer lights, there are Flexi Flaps which flip over and close the openings to eliminate spill. The Snapbag neatly hook-and-loops directly to the HydraPanel fixture(s) and is fully compatible with Astera’s baby pin mounting system and other accessories.
Plus there’s an optional Snapgrid which affixes around the front lip of either the single (SBATHY11) or multiple-fit HydroPanel (SBATHUY41) Snapbag for added light directional control.
Installed, the New Snapbag measures 51.5 x 23 x 32.5cm and weighs just 0.3kg. It comes with two front diffusions: Magic Cloth and a half-grid cloth.
