New Profoto Speedlight Ring Expands Use of RFi Softboxes

RFi-Speedlight-Speedring-with-speedlightsProfoto just announced a new Speedring adapter, which allows photographers to use any brand of speedlight with the entire line of RFi softboxes. The RFi Speedlight Speedring features dual brackets to attach two speed lights, if needed, for use with larger softboxes, providing extra illumination or faster recycling time. For more precise and creative lighting, the new adapter provides several adjustment options. Speedlights can be angled, adjusted vertically and, to obtain the optimal light-to-subject distance, moved forward. Even when using speedlights, softboxes can still be tilted and rotated 360 degrees.

Mounting positions are color-coded to match those of RFi softbox rods, making it easy to figure out what goes where with each different type of light modifier. The Speedring comes with additional hotshoe mounts so users can attach Profoto Air units or any radio sync, regardless of brand.

The RFi Speedlight Speedring is available now for $175, including the bracket and 4 hotshoe mounts.
