If you love soft light, then you’ll love the MagBox Pro 42” Octa. This big new Octabox has time-saving features like the super fast zip on diffuser, integrated built-in storage pocket, magnet attaching honeycomb grid for light control, a simple setup, and integrated gel slot, making it the fastest, easiest and most awesome large octabox for photographers.

*This product requires a MagRing or MagBox Speedring*

MagBox Pro Compatibility with MagShoe

Due to the additional weight and size of the MagBox Pro 42 and MagBox Pro 36 you must use the stronger MagShoe 2 instead of the original MagShoe.

Using the MagBox Pro with the original MagShoe could damage the MagShoe!

Soft Light, The MagMod Way

With 3 awesome diffusers, the MagBox makes it easy to control off camera softbox lighting.

Bring your creative vision to life with the built-in zip on Fabric Diffuser, the FocusDiffuser or the Magnetic Grid.

Combine any of the diffusers with a reusable polycarbonate MagBox Gel for quick and easy color correction.

The MagBox Pro Grid magnetizes to the MagBox instantly and effortlessly, saving photographers from the annoying and clumsy experience of other velcro-style softboxes.

The instant snap-on sound when the MagBox Pro Grid attaches feels automatic, secure, and is more satisfying than a perfect knuckle crack! 

Integrated Zip-On Diffuser

An industry first, the integrated zip-on diffuser on the MagBox Pro is something you kind of have to experience for yourself to truly appreciate. As simple as it sounds, this sweet zip-on zip-off action makes your MagBox totally easy and frustration-free.

Want to change up your look and go diffusion free? The zip-off diffuser tucks neatly away into an integrated inside pocket in seconds so you'll never have to worry about losing your diffuser or figuring out where to store it-it's always ready to go.

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.

Simply pop one of the rigid MagBox Gels into the frame and just like that you've got a colorful, soft light. 

Easy Access Side Zipper

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.

Durable Fabric Exterior

The new MagBox PRO delivers a new lighter-weight fabric shell made of rip-stop fabric. It not only looks good, but is super durable.

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.

MagBox Large Case

A professional softbox isn't complete without a professional-grade storage solution.

The MagBox Pro Case is now wrapped in a rigid outer shell that not only makes it easier to store your MagBox Pro when not in use, but keeps it safe from negligent assistants or baggage handlers.

MagMod MagBox 42” Octabox

High quality octabox, but it's not for me

The MagBox Pro 42 Octa has a solid design and made of high-quality materials. This is why it gets 5 stars. However, I found that it was too big for my needs as a portrait and wedding photographer who primarily works outdoors on location. This would be a great addition to any indoor studio space because of its soft light output. I have the MagBox Pro 24 Octa and find that it is more suitable to use outdoors in my opinion.

MagBox Pro 42 Octa

My over all experiences with the straight out of the box was amazing I love the 42” size because it gives soft light it takes like two to three minutes to open and get shooting and the most amazing thing about this 42” Octabox is it’s versatility it’s designed to work with all the flashes and studio strobes on the market. There aren’t any other otcaboxes on the planet that can compare to the ease-of-use light quality or ease-of -setup.

One Big, Happy Family

MagBox products integrate seamlessly with the rest of your MagMod gear. So go ahead and try things you've never tried before: stack up rigid gels, stack multiple modifiers or switch deftly back and forth between large and small light sources. Nailing the perfect image—and knowing you can do it quickly and easily without fail—unlocks a whole new world of creative confidence.
