Strips can be used in a variety of ways, producing a much narrower band of light when compared to the Octobox. The Strip is a useful tool for creating side lighting for full length fashion or portraits. Or it can be used on a boom arm for a soft hair light. By removing the internal and external baffles high contrast lighting can be achieved for dramatic images when combined with any other Interfit softboxes. or it can be used as a large reflector creating a special illumination effect. Some Interfit Stellar Halogen Kits feature Strip Boxes. Maximum Light loss=1 stop with both baffles inserted.
