Ideal for use overhead or to raise the ambient illumination level, the 66cm diameter Lantern Softbox from Aputure has the same omni-directional quality of light as the “China Balls” of yore but is built of durable materials and has accessories such as a skirt set to control the 270-degree beam spread. The Lantern has a Bowens mount that fits Aputure lights such as the 120d or 300d series, but it is also compatible with many other lights that use this popular mount.
With our recent release of the Fresnel 2X and Spotlight for intensifying and shaping hard light, we decided it was time to introduce an easier way to shape your soft light too.
This spherical softbox can pop open and be ready to use in mere seconds. With the Lantern you can produce soft, even light wherever your shoots may take you.
By utilizing a 26” spherical design, the Lantern spreads the light from your LED or Studio Strobe in all directions with a 270° beam angle.
The Aputure Lantern is one of the only spherical softboxes on the market with a 4-section fully adjustable light control skirt. By using a hook-and-loop design, the removable skirts can attach in any position, to quickly and precisely control your soft light.
With its tension-based quick release frame, the Lantern can be set up or broken down in just a few seconds, allowing you to set up fewer lights, faster.
With the ability to fit onto any Bowens mount Studio Strobe or LED fixtures, such as our 120d or 300d series lights, the Lantern is the perfect photo or video accessory for casting soft light over a wide area, while still maintaining control.
