Quadralite Hexadecagon is a softbox that provides a very soft, yet easy to control light, regardless of whether we work in the studio or outdoors. Its 16-shaft hexadecagon construction provides appealing circular catchlights in the subject eyes, which makes it an ideal tool for portraits, fashion and beauty photoshoots.

Quick and easy

Quadralite Hexadecagon is built on the basis of a quick folding mechanism, therefore is easy to use and can be prepared for work in a few seconds. Handy carrying bag is supplied in the kit for convenient storage and portability.


This parabolic-alike shaped recalls a tulip cup and is substantial for acquiring precisely lit scene and subject. Without unwanted lightspill. If necessary, Quadralite Hexadecagon can also be used with a honeycomb (available separately).


Quadralite Hexadecagon outer shell is made from high quality rip-stop nylon fabric for high durability, long lifespan and small weight at the same time. Interior is laminated with highly reflective silver film for even light distribution across its surface.

Double diffusion

There are two layers of diffusers made from high quality polyester rip-stop fabric. This part was carefully picked and tested to ensures proper white balance and color rendition. Inner diffuser is equipped with additional fabric layer in it center, to prevent hot-spot and assure even light distribution.


Softbox frame is internally made of metal. Steel tension rods supports whole structure effectively and keep parabolic shape despite lamp tilt.


Softbox is equipped with widely used Bowens-type mount, which ensures compatibility with wide range of studio and on-location flashes available on the market, including Quadralite products.* Thanks to the adapters available for other systems, Hexadecagon can also be used with Broncolor, Profoto and Elinchrome lamps.2
