Lighttools 33% grey Ultra Soft Egg Crate allows you to achieve a greater degree of shadow clarity and a more gradual highlight to shadow edge.
While Lighttools Original Soft Egg Crates block light in the most dramatic way, the new Ultra Soft Egg Crates are made with a specialized reflective material in the optimum 33% grey. The Ultra Soft Egg Crates block almost 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 all Chimera lightbanks, and most Butterfly and Overhead frames. With over 400 Soft Egg Crate configurations, you’ll be able to find a Lighttools model that works for your lighting style. The collapsible, lightweight Soft Egg Crates are manufactured in North America by skilled technicians, and are backed with the best product warranty in the industry.
The following illustrations show the light distribution comparing the 33% grey Ultra Soft Egg Crate and the original black Soft Egg Crates in 30°, 40°, and 50° variations. Note: Light measurements were collected using a large Chimera diffuser.
