Soft Egg Crates® attach to softboxes and butterfly and overhead frames. Through the use of uniform parallel cells, our Original Soft Egg Crates:
This more even lighting occurs due to increased occlusion† by the cells at closer distances.
Cell size, measured in degrees, describes the maximum angle of the off-axis light. A 20° Soft Egg Crate® is our narrowest model, giving you the greatest ability to aggressively control light. At the same time this model creates the most significant †occlusion at close distances. The 60°is the widest cell size and, therefore, is the most modest light blocking tool.
The 30°/50° and the 20°/60° models offer two variations in a single Lighttools® Soft Egg Crate®. You can easily vary the amount of soft light spread in four directions by rotating these models of Original Soft Egg Crates°.
Reduced near-to-far light ratio
†Occlusion: Refers to the blocking of light by Soft Egg Crate cells at close distances.
High quality construction of the collapsible, lightweight Soft Egg Crates® means you can stay on schedule and budget without sacrificing quality.
what stretch frame do
stretch frames give you better control with large softboxes
Stretch Frames® eliminate sag - to give you complete control - regardless of how much your softbox is angled downward.
Essential for larger softboxes, Stretch Frames are a one-piece, collapsible frame that are constructed with the usual high standards of all Lighttools products. When inserted into the softbox, the Stretch Frame creates rigid sides to keep the Lighttools Soft Egg Crate taut for 100% efficiency.
Quickly assemble Lighttools Stretch Frames® with a light shake that allows the bungee cord to pull the joints of the frame together. One Stretch Frame Each size softbox requires only one stretch frame for all Soft Egg Crates degree models to fit that softbox.
