Ideal for overhead use on a boom or as a fill light, the omni-directional RA-L65 Lantern Softboxfrom SmallRig can also be used to elevate the ambient light level. This allows you to use more focused instruments and light specific areas of your live action scene, interview setup, or product photography, while maintaining an overall ambient exposure level on set. The soft output of the light boosts light levels, lifting your set out of darkness without casting shadows in the same way a key light can.
Increasing the ambient light levels allows your talent to move throughout the scene more naturally, without being plunged into darkness, while still allowing you to create strong lighting effects. An included cloth skirt easily attaches to the softbox so you can control spill, keeping it off walls for example, and create more contrast where you want it.
