DoPchoice launches SNAPBAG for Astra IP at NAB 2024With a fresh take on the popular Snapbag snap-up softbox, the new tulip-style shape makes the most of the Astra’s capabilities to help set up, elevate light quality and optimize creative control.

The new design introduced by DoPchoice at NAB 2024 eliminates the need for skeletal ribs or rods due to its novel parabolic curve architecture combined with DoPchoice’s proprietary Snapshape material. Sleek tulip walls, together with the fixture’s flat yoke, enhances maneuverability and affords 30° greater downwards tilt angle. The Snapbag’s silver reflective interior intensifies output. For additional direction control, there’s a direct-fit 40º Snapgrid, and various diffusions available to further diffuse the light.

Like all DoPchoice favorites, the lightweight Snapbag for the Astra IP opens in a snap and attaches to the fixture quickly and simply. Two elastic straps buckle to the rear of the light to hold the Snapbag in place. Thanks to their elasticity, the straps stretch to slide on and off for speedy adjustment or release. Astra’s straight yoke replaces typical angled support, to allow for more compact stacking and storage, so more units can be transported in a smaller package.

DoPchoice launches SNAPBAG for Astra IP at NAB 2024New Snapbags for Astra IP come in three sizes to fit the Astra IP Half (weight 14oz/0.4kg), 1×1 (weight 15.5oz/.44kg), and 2×1 (weight 21.8oz/0.61kg).  The system is backwards compatible with Litepanels’ original Astra and works with 1×1 Snapbag accessories, including Snapgrids.
