Metz has now launched its Basic Line studio flash units. To enable an even greater flexibility with the studio flash units, Metz is now offering various soft box versions for all kinds of work situations. The soft boxes allow you to create subtle, harmonious lighting of your subjects and motifs. For ease of transport, the soft boxes can be folded up and placed in the carry bag sup-plied. The following models are available SB 60-90, SB 50-70 and SB 60-60, the SB 80-80 Octagon soft box and the ESB 60-60 and ESB 40-40 Easy soft boxes.

Soft lighting with soft boxes and Octagon soft box

The SB 60-90, SB 50-70 and SB 60-60 soft box versions, along with the SB 80-80 Octagon soft box, can all rotate 360 and are perfect for portrait, passport and product photography. Photographers can set off their subjects to best advantage in soft, even light using the foldable soft boxes and Octa-gon soft boxes. Furthermore, the boxes can be quickly and easily mounted on the studio flash unit. For even more creative lighting, the soft boxes and the Octagon soft box have integrated front and background diffusers. The front diffuser is mounted on the rectangular soft box to make the surface completely level and thus cast an even, soft light with a wide beam. The background diffuser creates an even softer and smoother light. When the shoot is over, the soft boxes and the Octagon soft box can be conveniently stored and transported in the supplied bags.

Gentle mood lighting with easy soft boxes

The ESB 60-60 and ESB 40-40 Easy soft boxes can rotate 360, and are per-fect for smaller product and portrait photography, creating soft, harmonious mood lighting. They can be conveniently attached to a compact flash unit using the FGH 40-60 flash unit holder. For even more precise lighting control, front and background diffusers are included with the Easy soft boxes as standard. Thanks to the supplied adapter, both Easy soft boxes can also easily be connected to all studio flash units with a Bowens-compatible bay-onet. After the photo shoot, the Easy soft boxes can simply be folded up and placed into their carry bag.
