Bigger. Softer. Better. 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. When space isn't a thing, but light quality is, the QSB-42 is unbeatable with all the diffusion goodness you could ever want.
The innovative Quick Release System is designed for speedy set up and break downs for the creator on the go! Just as easy as it is to open and close a traditional umbrella, you can have your modifier set up in seconds, saving you time and stress when you are creating your masterpiece. This is extra important if you are renting space because who wants to waste time setting up and breaking down when you could be making more magic?
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 2in x 2in x 2in, you will have extreme control of your light spread.
The reflector 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 QRB with or without any diffuser to produce 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 reflector plate, or without it to achieve many different looks with a single softbox.
The 4 thumbscrew design makes it easy to change speed ring inserts when you switch between lighting systems quickly and without tools.

Thank you! I am going to use it on an advertising shoot today.
Really pleased with this product, especially for the price point. 48" is a little too big for my space, but 42" is PERFECT and I retain the softness I wanted. Really pleased with this purchase.
Was able to seamlessly pick up product at their warehouse just before the ice storm of 2022. They were very helpful and as always, the Cheetah series is simply wonderful. You can't beat the price point and customer service.
Beyond a excellent product
