New Dome SnapBag Softens Kino Flo Light

New Dome SnapBag Softens Kino Flo Light

Kino Flo Lighting has transformed its large softlights into larger, softer sources with the new Soft Dome light control system. The customized lighting fabric dome with new “X” pole structure creates an extreme spread of shadowless light when attached to Celeb 850 or Image L80 LED fixtures.

In association with the design team from D.O.P. Choice®, Kino Flo has created the Soft Dome with flexible poles crisscrossed between opposite sides, forming a widened copula shape. When used to light large stages, the Soft Dome delivers broad coverage like traditional spacelight designs; for key and fill lighting the Soft Dome can be stand mounted and focused in a variety directions from vertical and horizontal positions.

Using lightweight Magic Cloth® material for even, color correct diffusion, the Soft Dome is made to withstand rough handling in the studio or on location. The softbox is lightweight enough for one person to attach easily onto a fixture. Each Soft Dome is packaged with a set of four black fabric side panels to kill the spill so lighting crews can control where the light falls.

Breaking down the Soft Dome is also fast and easy. The Soft Dome can be packed into a lightweight, compact bag for transportation and storage.

“The Soft Dome is a design upgrade for the Celeb and Image fixtures,” said Frieder Hochheim, president and founder of Kino Flo. “With the Soft Dome, our large LED fixtures can introduce another dimension of softness that is visually stunning when lighting talent and scenes photographed on cinema HD cameras.”

Kino Flo’s Celeb 850 and Image L80 head a family of versatile LED studio panel style fixtures unmatched in quality when lighting up close faces and large spaces, whether mounted on stands or rigged overhead downlighting cyclorama wall and floor areas.

Kino Flo also offers a wide variety of self-tightening, pop-up SnapBags® with light control SnapGrid® louvers that take seconds to mount onto Kino Flo’s family of LED fixtures. SnapBag and SnapGrid light control systems are available for all fixtures in the Celeb, FreeStyle, Image and Diva-Lite LED product lines.
