They make top-of-the line professional lighting equipment that boasts some of the best specs you can find, and now they want you to have some of it. Get yourself a Profoto Octa RFi and a RFi Speedlight Speedring by submitting your best group photo!
Both the Grand Jury winner and the People's Choice Award win:
The Octa RFi
The most commonly used for such purposes as fashion, beauty and portrait photography. One of the most important reasons for this is that its unique shape creates a beautiful, natural looking catch light in the subject’s eye.
Fashion and portrait photographers requiring a soft, even yet controllable key light favor the smaller versions. The larger version creates a beautiful fill light and has a relatively flat shape, making it surprisingly easy to handle
The new RFi Speedlight Speedring
The latest addition to Profoto’s assortment of speedring adapters is the new and improved RFi Speedlight Speedring. The name clearly reveals what the tool does; it allows you to use an RFi softbox with speedlights to create a soft and flattering light.
The RFi Speedlight Speedring allows you to mount not one but two speedlights of any brand on the bracket. This means that you now have enough power and punch to shoot in bright sunlight or light up an even larger softbox, such as the Softbox RFi 3x4’.
Each speedlight can slide and be tilted inside the softbox, allowing the user to create a remarkably even light with no hotspot. The entire softbox can also be tilted, rotated 360° and adjusted high wise.
The RFi Speedlight Speedrings come with color codes that match the RFi softbox rods. This makes the softboxes easy to mount, even for someone who has never used one before. The new RFi Speedlight Speedring comes with an attachment for Profoto Air Remotes or radio sync units from other manufacturers.
