Designed to enhance the amazing new S360-C, and other models, theres the all-new Snoot for spill-light reduction, Snapgrid® for light direction, and Snapbox¢ for light softening. The octagonal shaped Octa 5 and Octa 7, and popular Snapbag® softboxes, are now available in more sizes just to fit the S60. The sturdy Double-Bracket gangs a pair of ARRI S60 SkyPanels. The accessories require no additional hardware for mounting.
We pride ourselves on helping filmmakers and broadcasters gain the most creative light control, so our team is excited to have been called on to custom design and manufacture products for the new SkyPanel S360-C, says Stefan Karle, Founder and Managing Director of DoPchoice in Munich. Best of all, they are ready for shipment through ARRI, in time for the S360-C delivery.
The new Snapbox instantly creates a 5-sided rectangular light box, giving users the opportunity to encase their light fixture. The 15-inch thick Snapbox can work with a single S360-C, or more of the fixtures for a powerful, diffused light. It attaches to the front of the S360-C and comes with diffusion and blackout for light control.
Constructed of rugged fabric, Snoots shade the camera from spill light coming off the sides of the fixture. With a Snoot, the S360-C can be placed above or beside the subject without spill light affecting the camera.
If more directed light is needed, theres DoPchoices popular Snapgrid. Sized to fit ARRIs new light, the self-unfolding and self-tightening light controlling grid (40° beam angle) quickly attaches via hook and loop to the front of the Snapbox, the Snoot or to the panel itself.
In addition to light softening and directing tools, DoPchoices Double-Bracket made of extremely high tensile strength aluminum, gangs two S60 Skypanels together for twice the output.
As an option for producing an even softer light, the Octa 5 (five feet diameter) and Octa 7 (seven feet diameter) soft boxes can house the S60 as well as smaller SkyPanel fixtures. Octas can be deployed with or without front diffusion.
