Today we have an amazingly wide range of light shaping tools available for both Speedlite/Speedlight and Studio lighting.

Westcott is a line that has been growing in use in the UK.

Must confess I have not yet shot much with Westcott accessories, but I like the sound of any items.

A Parabolic softbox, particularly I find larger ones, can be really useful options for the studio.

Here are the details of the just announced Westcott Zeppelin line.

Available in 3 sizes 35”, 47” and 59” the new Westcott Zeppelin Deep Parabolic Softbox Series is a must have for any style of photographer. Commercial, fashion and portrait photographers can utilise the Zeppelin Deep Para Softbox to create stunning, even wrap-around light.

For control over your lighting the Zeppelin comes with both inner and outer diffusion panels, these let you easily determine the quality of your lighting. Additionally, the inner panel features a centre spot that eliminates hot spots from the light.

Zeppelin-Speedring-with-DeflectorThe Zeppelin features two mounting options; light heads can either be rear mounted using an heavy duty yoke with built in Speedring or positioned inside the softbox utilising the extra long, zippered entry point. Photographers may also achieve maximum light output by adding the optional easy-mount deflector plate.

Each Zeppelin Para is of high quality construction and uses 16 heat-resistant aluminium rods for ensuring that the Softbox maintains the appropriate shape. It also includes a travel case for portability.
