As close to direct sunlight as you can come in a studio environment.

The Hardbox is basically the opposite of a softbox. In other words, it eliminates stray light and reduces the size of the light source. This allows you to create a light that is rich in contrast and very similar to direct sunlight with deep sharp shadows and pinpoint-sized highlights. Replace the standard frosted glass cover on the flash head with a clear glass cover for the best effect.

  • Output at 2 m with 2,400 Ws @ ISO 100: f/32
  • Accepts the same accessories as the standard Zoom Reflector.
