Profoto Softboxes | Profoto (AU)

Create a soft light with the many popular Softboxes

There’s a reason our softboxes are so popular. They are made with high quality, durable fabrics and available in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Setting up is fast and hassle-free thanks to color-coded speedrings and Velcro attachments. There’s a wide range of optional accessories too, including speedring adapters which will ensure your softbox is compatible with the major flash brands.

We offer three lines of softboxes. The most popular is our standard RFi Softboxes that can be used with all of our lights. The OCF Softboxes are extra portable and lightweight and made for our off-camera flashes. And finally we have the Clic Softbox Octa. Made for our A-series flashes and designed for creating soft light on the go.

Our short guide below can help you find the right softbox for your needs.


Which line is right for me?

The RFi are our most popular softboxes and are ideal for both studio and on-location work. OCF Softboxes are used with our off-camera flashes and are super-portable and lightweight which makes them perfect for remote location shooting. The Clic Softbox Octa is dedicated to our A-series flashes. It features a rapid fold/unfold solution and uses strong magnets to attach to the flash head. Making it perfect for creating soft light on the go.

Which shape?

Which shape?

The Rectangular and Square are similar in nature, suitable for almost any occasion. The popular Rectangular is very versatile and suits most photography areas. The Square is a favorite of product photographers providing symmetric square highlights. The Octa shape is the portrait photographer’s favorite as it generates a very soft even light and also a natural looking catch light in the eye. Strip softboxes are great as rim lights and for creating long and perfectly even highlights with soft edges.


What size?

It’s true to say we’ve got a softbox for every occasion. The range starts with the smallest at 1x1.3’ and ends with the largest at 4x6’ with more than 20 other sizes in between. It’s worth keeping in mind that the larger the softbox and the closer the light source is to the subject the softer the light will be.

Accessorize your Softbox

Our softboxes, like any other light modifier, are designed with versatility in mind with a wide assortment of accessories. Start out by choosing your speedring, thereafter choose one or several of the optional accessories that will allow you to narrow the light spread or diffuse the light.


The speedring is the hub that assembles the softbox and connects to the flash. With our speedring adapters you can use RFi Softboxes with all Profoto’s flashes and other major flash brands. Pick the right speedring to mount your softbox and you’re ready to shape light.
