The Phoblographer is back with another RFi softbox review, this time of the rectangular Softbox RFi 3×4′ and the Softbox RFi 3′ Octa.
Reviewer Abram Goglanian assembles the two light modifiers, mounts them on his D1 Air Kit, and then takes several different test images using still life setups of cameras, lenses, and a nice cold glass of beer.
He particularly enjoyed working with the softgrids and was “impressed with how much light [it] can cut,” which allowed him to move from f/8 to f/2.8 “without even moving the light.”
He concludes, “I came away from this test wishing I had more time to spend with the gear, as I quite enjoyed working with the whole setup. Profoto has really created a great set of light modifiers to go with their already impressive lighting kits.”
