Lighttools Ultra Soft Egg Crates (33% grey) allows you to achieve a greater degree of shadow clarity and a more gradual highlight to shadow edge.
While Lighttools Soft Egg Crates (original black) block light in the most dramatic way, the new Ultra Soft Egg Crates are made with a specialized 33% grey reflective material in what we have found to be the optimum grey. Ultra Soft Egg Crates block the same amount of light as the original with a slightly more graduated transition to shadow.
Lighttools Ultra Soft Egg Crates are available in a variety of cell sizes to fit most lightbanks and Butterfly and Overhead frames. All Lighttools products are manufactured in North America by skilled technicians, and are backed with the best product warranty and guarantee in the industry.
The following illustrations show the light distribution comparing the Ultra Soft Egg Crate (33% grey) and the Soft Egg Crates (original black) in 30°, 40°, and 50° variations. Note: Light measurements were collected using an evenly lit large Chimera diffuser.
