The Cheetah QSB-42 softbox is a 42 inch modifier that provides beautiful wraparound light with a build quality made to last. The largest in our QSB collection, it offers the softest light. The innovative Quick Release System is designed for speedy set up and break downs for the creator on the go!
The interior of the softbox is lined with a specially engineered pebbled silver material, a Cheetah Stand exclusive. Smooth silver material can produce significant hot spots in the light output making it difficult to use the box without a diffuser. The unique design of the pebbling in our softbox diffuses the light, resulting in more consistent light while maintaining maximum output. This is especially important when shooting in bright sun when you need to get the most power from your lights.
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. The plate comes pre-installed, but is removable by user. You can use the QSB 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.

Important: Do not order this mount for the Godox AD-B2 Dual Flash Adapter for the AD200, it will not fit. For the AD-B2, select the standard Bowen mount. It is not recommended for other Bowen mount lights because the low-profile design may cause the flange on the insert to contact the frame of the light before it is fully installed into the light. It could become jammed. Einstein, AB, Balcar: Fit lights and accessories with a Balcar mount, which includes all lights produced by Paul C. Buff, Inc.
