New versions of SNAPBAGS and SNAPGRIDS from DoPchoice will be introduced at BSC 2019. Time to find the new solutions available to make the most of the modern LED fixtures.

Universal light control tool for almost every 4ft LED tube, that’s how DoPChoice presents the new  Universal 40-degree SNAPGRID for single LED tubes up to 4’ long. The SNAPGRID fits the Kino Flo LED FS 48, Astera AX1 and Titan, Quasar Science Linear LED and BB&S 4’ Pipeline. To control spill, says DoPchoice, there is a built-in protector shield on the rear that reflects stray illum ination out the front, where it is needed! The company says that “you open and close it in a SNAP!”

DoPchoice created the patented SNAPBAG for the age of LED lighting. The SNAPBAG is the first self-tighting softbox that instantly pops out of its its storage bag, ready to work. Lighter weight, quicker set-up and easy use have made them the choice of filmmakers and videographers worldwide. The SNAPGRID takes things a step further. It mounts on the front of a SNAPBAG or a Frost frame to control the spread of the light.

Multiple light shaping solutions

Taking full advantage of DoPchoice’s patented instant set-up and self-tightening internal SNAPFRAMES, a SNAPGRID practically snaps out of its compact pouch ready to easily attach onto the interior lip of most popular softboxes, or simply affixes via hefty elastic strap to the corners of a Frost frame and panel light. These products, and the other strange named products from DoPchoice catalog, RABBIT-EARS or BUTTERFLY, will be on display at BSC 2019, with multiple solutions available from a company has been creating some of the finest light shaping gear since 2008.

Catered to the diverse new light fixture designs, DoPchoice has come up with tools for tube-style LED lights now offered by several makers. For those who want to combine more tubes, DoPchoice has both SNAPBAG and SNAPBOX solutions to get the job done. To use multiple KinoFlo LED tubes with DoPchoice’s SNAPBOX box-shaped snap-up softener, there’s the new 4×4 Frame Adapter that allows use of 8 KinoFlo tubes or 4 with the handy 4×2 blanket-style Adapter.

The new RABBIT-EARS

To handle multiple KinoFlo LED tubes DoPchoice devised convenient blanket-style Frame Adapters. The 4×4 version holds up to 8 Tubes and the 4×2 secures 4 Tubes to the sturdy frame. For the ultimate softener, either version slips into DoPchoice’s instant set-up SNAPBOX.

After simplifying soft box mounting with their RABBIT-EARS lightweight folding frames, DoPchoice will unveil their newest, the RABBIT-EARS X-Crossover (SREX). Fully compatible with all existing SNAPBAGS for RABBIT-EARS, this new size (675 x 520mm / 25.86 x 20.47 inch) fills the gap between rectangular and square versions. This problem solver can fit either 2 x 1.5-foot lights or multiple light fixtures can be added into this single frame by using adapters. For example, with DoPchoice’s DMG Mini Mix Adapter for SREX-SL2M, the user can mount two Mini Mix fixtures into one Crossover frame. Or with another adapter the same RABBIT-EARS X-Crossover will support a Fargo Lumen 4.

DoPchoice tries to stay one tool ahead. Just as the DoPchoice 3-foot Lantern for the Redback fixture starts delivering, there’s also a new SNAPBAG lightweight quick-setup softener just for Hudson Spider’s new Mozzie.
