At every stage in softbox fabrication, Rime Lite has chosen materials which insure consistent performance and durability with built-in features that facilitate easy use. Fluorescent dyes, which cause a blue color shift, have been avoided in their construction. UV coating has been employed for color consistency while special heat-resistant materials expand the capabilities of these strobe boxes to allow use of hot lights up to 650W. Waterproofing not only makes for easy maintenance, but prevents fading and discoloration, ensuring color consistency over time.
The long, narrow shape of these softboxes is ideal for a wide variety of subjects. The small to medium boxes are perfect for product work or for use as a hair light, fill light or edge light. Nothing puts a long thin highlight on glassware like a strip box. Fashion photographers sometimes mount 3 of these boxes in a triangular configuration and shoot through the middle of the setup. The larger strips are great for large product work like cars or to provide edge lighting for a model in fashion or boudoir photography.
