Profoto Introduces Light Shaping Tools for Speedlights

Profoto Light Shaping Tools for Speedlights
From Profoto:
 
Speedlights are great for many reasons, but being able to create a soft and shapable light is not one of them. Profoto offers a simple solution to this problem: a speedring that makes the Profoto RFi softboxes compatible with speedlights of most brands.
 
On November 1, 2012, Profoto released the RFi softboxes – a new line of softboxes comprising 12 sizes and four models. One of the most attention grabbing features of the RFi softbox line is the speedring adaptors that make Profoto’s softboxes compatible with well over 20 different flash brands.
 
Today, Profoto releases the latest addition to its assortment of speedring adaptors: a new and improved RFi Speedlight Speedring. The name clearly reveals what the tool does; it allows you to use an RFi softbox with speedlights, and thereby soften and shape the light.
 
But it does not end there. The RFi Speedlight Speedring allows you to mount not one but two speedlights 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 you to create a remarkably even light with no hotspot. The entire softbox can also be tilted, rotated 360° and adjusted high wise. In short, the RFi Speedlight Speedring allows you to shape the light however you see fit.
 
Also note that the RFi Speedlight Speedrings have color codes that match the RFi softbox rods. This makes the softboxes incredibly easy to mount, even for someone who has never used one before.
 
Last but not least, the RFi Speedlight Speedrings comes with an attachment for Profoto Air Remotes or radio sync units from other manufacturers.
 
The new RFi Speedlight Speedring is officially released on October 1.
