The Cheetah QPB-36 deep parabolic softbox is a 36 inch modifier that provides the most beautiful even light with the highest build quality to to hold up for you through it all. The QPB series offers creators the ability to add the Cheetah Focusing System MKII for full control of your light source. The well designed Easy Open system provides fast set up and break downs with ruggedness in mind for the creator on the go!
The Cheetah QPB series is constructed with light weight fiberglass rods to help with handle most situations. Compared to our competitors that use a metal rod system, our softbox handles wind and other nature elements better with less chance of collapsing. The locking system is also rubberized to make it easier to lock and unlock the rods in place.
Multiple configurations means this softbox can produce anything from a hard, direct light source that accentuates your subject, to a beautifully softened source of light that envelopes your subject. Use with the beauty dish alone to create a hard source with a softer center. Use of combinations of the outer and inner diffusion material to go even farther to produce different levels of contrast, sharpness, and dimension. Add the optional Cheetah Focusing System to convert to a direct, focusable light source.
The exterior is a tough, flexible material that is tear-resistant and water-resistant. It comes equipped with 2 layers of diffusion that can all be easily cleaned - especially important if you are going to take it on adventures! Combined with the best grid in the market measuring at 2"x2"x2", you will have extreme control of your light spread.
The Beauty Dish Plate adds an extra dimension to the capabilities of this softbox. You can use the QPB with the beauty dish plate without any diffuser. Using only the beauty plate produces an edgy and crisp light that is great for showing the shape and texture of your subject. For softer light, add the front diffuser. For even softer light, use both front and inner diffuser. The diffusers can be used in combination with the Beauty Dish plate, or without it to achieve many different looks with a single softbox.
