Not a softbox, scattering its light through a diffuser directly at the subject, the new SOFTLIGHTER II delivers light that has been totally reflected before it is diffused, light as soft and as even as moonglow.

Because it is a rule that the closer the light source the softer the light our new SOFTLIGHTER II design comes with a removable center shaft to bring the light source even closer to your subject.

This SOFTLIGHTER II is suggested for use specifically in conjunction with Profoto, Bowens and Balcar heads. And add something even more special. The SOFTLIGHTER II sets up in moments, no collars or rib set up.

Building its original design from the classic umbrella shape, the SOFTLIGHTER II has developed that classic light source into a total system. This system ranges from the basic professional reflector/diffuser umbrella to a most sophisticated lighting instrument capable of a variety of lighting tasks.

Designed in three appropriate sizes, every SOFTLIGHTER II will fit any light head 7- 1/4" or less in diameter and features these signal advantages:

- Its white reflective surface, free of bleaches and fluorescence, perfectly reflects the color of your light.

- Its stout black nylon cover stops all stray and ricochet, enhancing total light control.

- Its unique construction consisting of ten panels instead of the usual eight gives more reflective surface and a more perfect circle of light, so flattering when seen as catch lights in the eyes.

- So versatile a product is the SOFTLIGHTER II, that by removal of its black cover and a reversal of direction, the SOFTLIGHTER II becomes everything a softbox promises. It becomes a shoot through diffuser providing light that can be used either as a main light source or as a flattering fill.

- Final touch. The SOFTLIGHTER II sets up in moments. Its unique translucent cover fits directly onto the tips of the SOFTLIGHTER II. A totally fireproof material creates its own collar around the lighthead, with no time consuming fitting of mounting collars or rib setups involved.

- Best of all. After inserting the SOFTLIGHTER II into the flash head, the bottom portion of the shaft is removable on the 8mm SOFTLIGHTER II , allowing the unit to get as close to the subject as possible.

SPECIAL NOTE: For mounting battery powered speedlight flash units to the SL-6000 a speedlight / strobist umbrella adapter is necessary. Flash and stand sold separately
