The Airbox inflatable soft box is a new concept that I first saw at NAB earlier this year. It is a new take on an old age problem – soft sources for not so soft lights. The Airbox simply attaches with velcro straps and is designed specifically for LED lights that run cool. By making the soft box blow-up it can pack down really small and is very lightweight. Other handy features are a slot for coloured gels on the front of the unit and an optional plastic grid. The low cost means that users can add soft boxes to a variety of different lights without having to spend a fortune.
It is the unique design and affordability that make the Airbox stand out. There are a variety of sizes to fit a multitude of different lights. A version for 1×1 sized LED panels version should be coming in December this year.
