Phottix, the company behind the popular Odin TTL flash trigger, has released the Luna line of softboxes and beauty dishes. They are designed to help solve the frustrations of using these two popular light modifiers on location. The Luna series uses folding and locking fiberglass rods, and an integrated speed ring to speed up assembly and make transportation easier. Where a traditional octa softbox might take ten minutes to assemble, Phottix says that the Luna 110cm Octa can be ready to use in 90 seconds.
The Phottix Luna Beauty Dish uses a similar principle. Unlike traditional metal dishes, the Luna dish’s folding and locking fiberglass rods make it compact and easy to transport without sacrificing the quality of light. Both Luna Softboxes and Beauty Dishes come standard with a Bowens-compatible mount. Compatible mounts for Elinchrom, Profoto and Balcar are also available, making the Luna series useable on many popular studio lights.
