DoPchoice SNAPBOX Softbox Explained and FAT-RABBIT Updates

We talked to Stefan Karle, CEO of DoPchoice, at NAB 2023 to learn more about the SNAPBOX adaptable Softbox. He also gave us an update on what’s new with the FAT-RABBIT system for large LED fixtures and frames. So, let’s dive into it!

DoPchoice is a well-established manufacturer of light-shaping accessories for a lot of different lighting brands. If you are interested, check out our earlier product coverages on the RABBIT-ROUNDER and the SNAPBAG for Astera. We caught up with the company to see what the SNAPBOX and FAT-RABBIT are all about.

SNAPBOX features

The SNAPBOX is built to fit many small flat-panel LED lights like the KinoFlo Freestyle Air, Litemats, and so on. It is built around a self-tightening Snap-frame which has an elastic inner frame. This allows the frame to adapt to the slight size differences, that most small LED fixtures have. You can then attach diffusion to the frame to form a softbox.

This makes it very convenient for rental houses and filmmakers who have several similarly-sized lights from different brands. This solution is compact and lightweight which makes it great for traveling.

The FAT-RABBIT on the other hand is made to attach diffusion to large light fixtures. It is based on a rectangular frame that can be adjusted in size to conform to many different large LED lights like ARRI Skypanel 360, Prolight XL Panels, 4X Litepanels Gemini 2×1, etc.

There are bars in different sizes available to purchase, that can be combined to make the frame fit even more fixtures. They all have spigot receivers attached to them to then attach a softbox to. DoPchoice now also sells blocks that have the softbox receiver attached to them, which you can attach to your own frames.

You can attach the SNAPBAG DOUBLE-HEX 8′ softbox using the FAT-RABBIT frame and now there is also a SNAPGRID available for this giant softbox.

The first batch of the SNAPBOX is currently sold out and the company is busy producing more. At the time of writing, the lead time was 2-3 weeks.
