DoPchoice is now shipping its new range of Snapbag light control tools for the ARRI Orbiter LED fixture. Each accessory interfaces directly with the new ARRI QLM mount.
New Snapbag lightbanks for the Orbiter are a little different from regular rectangular soft boxes. Snapbags emerge from their pouch in a single piece. Due to the Rabbit Rounder mount, the user then simply snaps the arms into place and interfaces it with the Orbiter’s QLM mount. Rabbit Rounder also allows easy Snapbag rotation for horizontal or vertical orientation.
The output of the Orbiter is also intensified due to a special metallic reflective fabric. Inside the SnapBag there is also an internal 3D Baffle. At the center of the system, this sewn-in pyramid-shaped baffle enables medium and large Snapbag sidewalls to reflect the light outward, for an even spread without diminishing illumination.
Users have the option of attaching the included TRP Magic Cloth front diffusion panel, and for more directional output there’s also a Snapgrid.
To support the octagonal-shaped Snapbags, DoPchoice also has the Octa 4, measuring 4’/120cm x 4’/120cm x 2’1”/65cm deep. Octas may be used open-face, with the included front diffusion panel, or for more directional control users can add a 40-degree Snapgrid.
To round out the offerings, DoPchoice, single-piece lantern-shaped Snapbag Domes rotate onto the Orbiter mount. These lightweight softeners are offered in diameters of: Small, 30cm/12 inch, Medium, 50cm/19.7 inch and Large, 80cm/31.5 inch. To control spill, contoured black/white quadrant covers attach via hook ‘n loop.
Manufactured by DoPchoice and TRP Worldwide, these accessories for the Orbiter family are available through ARRI, or authorized dealers.
