QPB-48 with Focusing System Softbox
QPB-48 with Focusing System Softbox
Ready to go next level with your portable studio? With the Cheetah QPB-48 deep parabolic softbox, you can now produce multiple looks of light with one easy to setup light modifier. The QPB series offers creators the ability to add the Cheetah Focusing System MKII for full control of your light source. The well designed Type S 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 handle most situations. Compared to our competitors that use a metal rods, our softbox manages 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. Oh snap!
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. With just the reflector dish alone, it creates a hard light without a center hotspot. Combinations with the inner and outer diffusion produce different levels of contrast, sharpness, and dimension. Adding the grid will control your light spill for extreme directional lighting. Use the Cheetah Focusing System to convert to a focusable light source for ultimate control of your 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.

In order for this to work with your lights, please make sure they are Bowen mounts.
If your lights are not Bowen, and you would like to be able to attach them to the back of the softbox for direct lighting, you need to order a compatible 144mm speedring as an add-on to your order.
If you have lights with a variety of mounting systems that you want to use inside the softbox on the end of the Focusing System, you can order additional Focus System Adapters to support those lights.
Love the flexibility to mold the light into what the job needs, or what I like with the internal positioning of the light source.
Got a great price, and prompt delivery (even with the weather delays). Also got a great chat with Edward..
Thank you Edward!
Super impressed with this kit. This may be my favorite purchase from you guys, although every bit of Cheetahstand gear I have purchased has been top notch.
I am very impressed with the 48" deep para. I have always wanted to own a reverse mounted parabolic reflector but couldn't justify the big price tag of other brands. I own the 42" soup bowl so I know the quality is top notch. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. If you ever decide to make a huge one, I'll be first in line! Thanks!
The 48" Easy Open Deep Parabolic Softbox gives incredibly soft light. All of cheetahstand products are of the highest quality and will contine to buy from them.
Haven't shot with it yet, but I'm still going to give it 5 stars due to the build quality and ease of assembly being so much greater than the RB120, which I already own and love the light quality of. Looking forward to deploying it without screaming and crying... the rapid delivery was welcome too.
