MagMod has put together this MagBox 24 Octa Pro Kit for photographers who want to maximize the potential of their speedlights while having the option to configure the system for use with strobes. The kit includes the 24″ MagBox Octa softbox with diffuser, a MagRing that holds one or two flashes, a MagShoe for handholding or stand-mounting, and a set of CT correction gels. Also included is the FocusDiffuser which narrows the Octa’s beam spread while increasing its output two or three stops. It all fits in the provided case.
MagMod MagBox 24 Octa Softbox (24″)
Featuring a one-piece design and a magnetic base for very fast set up and breakdown, the 24″ MagBox 24 Octa Softbox from MagMod is compatible with Profoto, Bowens, Elinchrom, or Paul C. Buff strobes with optional dedicated adapters and one or two speedlights with the addition of the MagGrip that is sold separately. One of the MagBox’s most noticeable features is its evenness of output from edge to edge. Remarkably, this is done without an internal baffle and without exhibiting a hot spot. For personal expression, there are two available gel kits with a variety of colors that slip into the softbox’s integrated gel holder, while there’s also a CTO set for conversion of your light source to tungsten balance. Finally, sold separately, MagMod’s FocusDiffuser functions like a grid and a lens combined, allowing you to control spill and direct the light while increasing its output.
Easy Set Up and Tear Down
Speedlight- and Strobe-Compatible
The MagMod MagRing is a lightweight universal speedlight mount that accepts up to two speedlights that have been outfitted with MagMod’s MagGrip (MagGrip not included). The MagRing features a cold shoe mounting foot and can mount to a MagMod MagShoe for handheld or stand-mounted use. Magnetic attachments are at the heart of the MagRing and are used to hold MagMod’s MagBox softbox. Magnets also secure your speedlights when mounted with the MagGrip, and the MagRing incorporates locking doors for further security.
MagMod MagShoe for MagRing
The MagMod MagShoe for MagRing is a lightweight ergonomic holder for your MagRing flash holder. The MagShoe can be mounted to a stand with a 5/8″ pin or easily carried handheld, and it accepts either a flash or the MagRing using a cold shoe mounting system. It is designed to operate with only one hand, leaving your other hand available to hold your camera, which allows you to mount your flash or MagRing and lock it in place with a single hand.
The single-handed operation extends to the tilt function, which is controlled by a simple trigger that you squeeze to release the lock. This allows you to have a secure grip on the MagShoe while locking or unlocking it with the same hand that is holding it secure. Releasing the trigger engages the tilt lock, which allows the MagShoe to support your MagRing, two flashes, and the MagBox softbox. It integrates an umbrella mounting hole with lock, allowing you to create that familiar soft look. The plastic exterior of the MagShoe is gentle on your hands, and will not accidently trigger your flash via its hot-shoe mounting foot.
MagMod MagBox Case
The travel-friendly MagMod MagBox Case is designed to hold, protect, and transport your MagBox Light, MagRing, two MagShoes, two speedlight flahses, two FocusDiffusers, and twenty four or more MagBox Gels.
MagMod MagBox 24 Octa FocusDiffuser
Featuring a unique design that employs micro-structures, the MagBox 24 Octa FocusDiffuser from MagMod functions like a combination of a grid and a lens to modify the softbox’s beam spread. Attaching in seconds via integrated magnets, the FocusDiffuser narrows the wide beam to 20 or 40 degrees depending on orientation, while it increases the output two to three stops.

MagMod Correction Gel Set
Put together by MagMod to assist photographers in converting their speedlight’s daylight color balance to tungsten or to warm or cool its quality of light, the Correction Gel Kit contains eight rigid polycarbonate gels that slip into the integrated slot in the MagBox Octa. The set includes a Full CTO, 1/2 CTO, and, 1/4 CTO filters, as well as Full CTB, 1/2 CTB, Full Plus Green, 1/2 Plus Green, and an 8x ND filter. The gels require separate purchase of a MagGrip for use.
