You Gellin?

Before the MagBox, adding color to a large softbox was next to impossible. The MagBox's patent-pending design ingeniously adapts gels to larger softbox modifiers for the first time ever, which made it the first gel-able softbox.

A zipper built right into the side of the MagBox makes it easier for you to swap out the colored gels during your shoot without removing the diffuser or fabric grid.

Fast, Easy Attachment

MagMod’s patented magnetic modular design makes for lightning-fast and secure flash modifier changes. Stack multiple modifiers to really customize your light control setup.

Strobe or Speedlites

The MagBox is the most versatile softbox ever, making it one super smart investment. Use it with 1 or 2 Speedlights—any flash that has our patented MagGrip installed will work.

The MagBox is equally happy being mounted to large studio strobes... and LED video lights using one of our optional MagBox Speeding Adapters to mount a Profoto, Bowens, Elinchrom or Paul C. Buff strobe.

How it works

The Softbox - Radically Redesigned

Check out this video to see what makes the MagBox line up of softboxes so radically different than everyone else.

See it in action

Soft Light, the MagMod Way

The MagBox simplifies the process of managing off-camera softbox lighting with two fantastic diffusers. Achieving your creative vision is a breeze with either the built-in zip-on Fabric Diffuser or the Magnetic Grid. For quick and easy color correction, you can combine any of the diffusers with a reusable polycarbonate MagBox Gel. With these versatile tools, the MagBox provides complete control over your lighting, allowing you to bring your artistic vision to life with ease.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the MagBox Pro 42 Octa work with my original MagRing?

Yes, but you will want to upgrade to the MagShoe 2 if you also have an original MagShoe for mounting your MagRing.

Will my light stand support the MagBox Pro 42 Octa?

Yes, nearly any light stand should support it. However if you plan on having it set up in an area where it may be jostled, outside where it’s windy, where the ground is soft or uneven, or at a lengthy extension we do recommend adding a supporting weight such as a sandbag at the base of the stand to provide additional stability and support.

    Do you love soft light??

    I loved (and still LOVE) everything about the MagBox 24" but when the MagBox Pro 42 was released, I was over the moon! I'm a sucker for large soft light and this modifier fits the bill. It breaks down and sets up in seconds and the new zipper design on the front diffusion makes this process so much easier. You never have to worry about the diffusion coming off and you possibly losing it. They've also incorporated a a nice pouch built into the inside of the MagBox which allows for storage of the front diffusion when it's not in use. Super convenient! I'm also a huge fan of the magnet system for attaching Grids, which is way better and less noisy than using velcro usually found with other brands. All in all, this is the perfect addition to the kit and a great compliment to the full MagMod product lineup.

    Nice!

    I like the new zipped diffuser which tucks nicely into a pocket. The larger size helps without feeling too large.

    Perfect for group location shots

    The ease of use of the MagBox Pro 42 makes location shoots so much easier than most alternatives for groups of 6+ people. It's light weight design and incorporated diffuser enables me to work alone (although a study stand and sandbags are a must).

    Excellent addition to my gear bag.
