Swiss lighting manufacturer Bron has brought its latest series of softboxes to the UK. The new line is supposedly “easier to construct and dismantle” thanks to colour-coded support rods, as well as featuring three layers of diffusion material.
Broncolor UK‘s Chris Burfoot said of the new softboxes: “Our engineers have fulfilled their brief to develop both an innovative and a competitively-priced range of light shapers for our photographer customers.
“The new, typically robust, bron Softboxes and Octaboxes are marketed in a total of nine different shapes and sizes, embracing square, rectangular and octagonal shapes, or as a strip â€“ providing the optimum format options for any application.”
The cheapest of the new modifiers is the rectangular 35 by 60cm softbox, which costs Â£110 plus VAT. A 75cm octabox is Â£140 plus VAT. Prices go up from there, with the most dear being “The Biggest”, a Â£195 (Â£234 inc. VAT) 180 by 120cm softbox.
Thanks to interchangeable speedring adapters, the accessories can be mounted on most brands of studio lights. For full pricing information and a list of dealers and rental houses, visit ukbroncolor.com
