The Universal: The smallest square Softbox is the perfect all-rounder; its use makes good sense in most sectors of product and portrait photography. This size is still very compact, so the light is not too soft and perfect for powerful lighting.
The Smallest: The smallest of all Softboxes is only a little larger than a standard reflector. The light is, of course, scattered, but with these small dimensions, cannot be considered soft. Due to the very homogeneous illumination it is outstandingly suited for use in product photography. The smallest Softbox is also very suitable for powerful and classical portraits. On location, for example at weddings, the compact Softbox can also be used without a stand as a hand-held chaser light.
The Beautiful: Octagonal soft box with half the diameter and a quarter of the illuminated area of the Octabox 150. It is notable for the very homogeneous illumination it provides and the rounded eye-lights, but its light is a good deal harder than from its larger sister. It is therefore the first choice for classical portrait and powerful beauty lights.
The Ultimate: The larger of the two Octaboxes. Light quality is similar to that of a rectangular Softbox of a similar size. But the octagonal form provides even more homogeneous illumination. Particularly in portrait and beauty photography the rounded reflections in the eyes are preferred to those from rectangular Softboxes.
The Big One: Softbox with the classical 3:4 aspect ratio. Perfect for use anywhere where large area and soft lighting is required. As with any rectangular (but not square) Softbox, you can turn it through 90° to achieve another, slightly different, lighting characteristic.
The Biggest: Over two square metres of light! Even over the shortest distance this Softbox illuminates a whole body very uniformly and this short distance from the model (or object) guarantees an unbelievably soft and beautiful light.
The Strip Softbox: The Striplite among the textile Boxes is perfect for illuminating edges in product photography and as a hair-light in the portrait and fashion fields. Powerful backlights to emphasise contours are possible; narrow reflections can be created in glossy surfaces.
The Compromiser: Medium size, rectangular Softbox. This offers a relatively large illuminated area and is therefore especially suitable for beauty photography, but also for homogeneously illuminated half-body exposures. Like all broncolor Softboxes it provides exceptionally homogeneous light distribution and can therefore be used in product photography, for example, to achieve reflections in glossy objects.
The Middle One: The softer version of the compact 60 x 60. With an illuminated area just under three times larger, this Softbox provides a much softer light. As a soft backlight in food photography too, this Box in one of the most flexible light modifiers.
