Holy smokes. This MagMod MagBox. These required modifiers can actually bundled when you purchase the MagBox though. These required hardware pieces would happen to be the: MagGrip, MagShoe, and the MagRing. Here are a few of the additional products MagMod offers for their 24” MagBox. Check out the following list of accessories that prove this is the best softbox for photographers.


MagGrip (Required, sold separately) – $25

Official Description from MagMod: The revolutionary MagGrip harnesses the powers of magnetism to provide a quicker, easier and stronger attachment method for speedlite flash modifiers. Say goodbye to noisy velcro, sticky adhesives and bulky straps forever.


MagShoe – (Required, but included with MagBox Starter Kit) – $60

Official Description from MagMod: The MagShoe is a universal, ergonomic cold shoe bracket you can operate with one hand. Just slide in your flash, turn the lock 90 degrees and you’re golden. It’s a must-have for any photographer who wants to work faster, easier and awesome-er.


MagRing – Required, but included with MagBox Starter Kit) – $80

With a MagGrip on your flash, attaching a speedlight* to the MagRing takes literally 1 second. Beefy and durable, the MagRing keeps your flashes secure so you can work quickly and confidently.

Standard MagBox 24” Fabric Diffuser (included with the MagBox, not sold Separately


MagBox  24” Focus Diffuser – $110

Official Description From MagMod: The FocusDiffuser offers a whole new way to modify your softbox. With magnets allowing for easy setup, the FocusDiffuser lets you control light like a grid, but also focus it like a lens—all while keeping your light super soft. Your old school fabric grid can’t multi-task like that! You’ll love how simple it is to limit spill and increase the effective output of your softbox by 2 stops (vs. MagBox with Fabric Diffuser).


Small Case for MagBox – $120

Official Description from MagMod: You’ve invested a lot in your gear. We designed the MagBox Case to protect and organize it all. Semi-padded sides and hard top and bottom shells provide protection from impact while allowing the case to stand up on its own. There’s a place for everything inside, including a rigid inner core for a FocusDiffuser and a zipper pocket for storing gels. Throw it over your shoulder, and you’re ready to shoot.


MagBox Gels – $60

Official Description from MagMod: This set of 8 rigid polycarbonate gels makes color correction and creativity with your MagBox super simple. Pop up to 2 gels into the MagBox’s built-in gel holder to balance your softbox’s color temperature instantly, or to create custom hues that add drama to your images.


SpeedRing Adapters – $50+

Official Description from MagMod: With a MagBox Speedring Adapter for your Bowens, Paul C. Buff, Elinchrom or Profoto strobe, your softbox becomes a super versatile soft light source—and a crazy good investment for your photography business. Our durable, powder-coated speedring adapters set up and tear down in less than 1 second so you can switch between speedlights and strobes with ease.

5: No Noisy, Obnoxious Velcro

Not really something common to read about in a review but this was really one of the biggest features for me. I hate the sound of Velcro, especially as a wedding photographer. In addition to the lack of noise coming from my light modifiers, I enjoy the fact that these boxes can literally be thrown agains the MagRing and BOOM, donzo’. The MagMod MagBox also has a dedicated zipper to get into the already set-up box (for adding your gels). It’s amazing how fun it is to attach diffusion material with a magnet vs attaching with velcro. Bravo guys, bravo.

It may sound like a first-world problem to be concerned about noise and ease of access when dealing with a octa modifier, but I’m spoiled to it with no chance of going back. Just another reason that this is the best softbox.


Magbox 24” Octa from MagMod, FTW

I love mine so much that I purchased two. Well, that’s not entirely true. See, I was actually so excited about this that I purchased two at once. The guys over at MagMod didn’t disappoint though. This is a revolutionary photography product that changes the entire game. The MagMod MagBox 24” starts at $180 for the stand-alone box with no required hardware. Their starter kit is priced at a very reasonable $290, including everything but the required MagGrip. They also have a killer deal for those of use who are insanely wild about their products, the OctaPro Kit comes with a case, color correction gels, both diffusion cloths. You can get this bundle for right at $500. That’s truly a deal like none-other.  The MagMod MagBox is the absolute BEST Softbox for Photographers.

1 thought on “The MagMod MagBox – Best Softbox For Photographers

  1. The MagRing adapter for Bowens mount comes with a caveat. It’s incompatible with the Godox AD600 and AD400 models. MagMod has a note on it’s support page. Unfortunately, they haven’t been forthcoming about replacing my payment for this unusable product since I purchased it on the Kickstarter last December.

    I’m quite happy with the MagMod products overall, but the Bowens MagRing that’s incompatible with some of the most popular strobes on the market is really a cause for concern.
