Throughout its entire 9-stop output range, the portable FJ400 provides unmatched performance with the most accurate color temperature.

It also has an intuitive menu system and LCD color display. The USB-C cable that comes with the strobe can be used to upgrade its firmware.

Support for Dedicated Sony Cameras

The FJ400 strobe offers unmatched capabilities like High-Speed Sync, TTL, and more when used with an FJ-X3 S Wireless Trigger. For Sony cameras, the wireless trigger is built with a special Sony hot shoe mount. For more information, see the compatibility table.

Outstanding Battery Performance

The detachable lithium polymer battery offers both AC trickle-charging functionality when the level of charge is greater than 25% and DC power for freedom while operating on location.

Optimized for Light Modifiers

The expanded flash tube's ideal light output enables filling light modifiers to have a wider, more uniform spread of light. The Bowens S-Type mounting system on the FJ400 makes it simple to use your preferred softbox with it. The FJ400 comes with a Rapid Box Switch Bowens Insert that enables you to link your strobe with any Rapid Box Switch light modulator as well as a Magnetic 5-inch Reflector, Magnetic CCT Gel Set (CTO, 1/2-CTO, Window Green, Diffusion, Gel Frame), and Magnetic CCT Gel Set. Large umbrellas and modifiers can be mounted and positioned securely using the built-in tilter bracket with a tension screw.

Color Temperature Consistency

With flash increments of either 0.1 or 1.0 stops, the FJ400 maintains a color temperature constancy of 5500K (150K) throughout its entire 9-stop output range. It has a 20W 5600K LED modeling lamp with separate output control and auto-adjustment.

Safety-Conscious Design

For safe operation while in use, the FJ400 strobe has onboard self-monitoring cooling fans and an automatic shutoff mechanism.

Quick and Compact Rapid Box Switch Softboxes

The accompanying Rapid Box Switch is built with a sturdy aluminum umbrella-inspired architecture that maximizes durability, reduces weight, does not require additional support rods, and is simple to assemble. Everything is quick, easy, and small.

Easily Transport and Store Your Strobe Kit

The supplied backpack is perfect for traveling comfortably with your FJ400 equipment because it has a sizable central storage section with detachable partitions. A compact water bottle pouch, a tripod holder with retention straps, different zipped sections for storing smaller supplies, an inside box with three padded sleeves for holding computers and tablets, and more are included.

Westcott 48-Inch Octa-L Rapid Box Switch Softbox

The Westcott Rapid Box Octa-L Switch Softboxes are large collapsible softboxes with reflective silver interiors and diffusion panels for modifying speedlites or strobes. Octagonal modifiers are ideal for photographing people. Due to their round shape, Rapid Box Octa softboxes leave a natural, more appealing catch light in your subject's eyes. These modifiers are a perfect key light for portraits.

The Softbox That Changes With You

With interchangeable light mount inserts, the Rapid Box Switch is designed for use with the most popular strobes, speedlites, and monolights. The 9 unique sizes and shapes with new 1x4, 2x3, and 3x4 options allows you to choose your Switch modifier while the 13 quick-release interchangeable light mount options allows you to choose your Switch Insert.

Designed for Portability

Constructed with solid aluminum umbrella-inspired framework, the design of the Rapid Box Switch maximizes durability, minimizes weight, eliminates the need for separate support rods, and makes setup a breeze. Everything is simple, quick, and compact. After your shoot, the Rapid Box Switch breaks down instantly into a sleek carry case for travel and storage.

An Ingenious Light Modifier

Pairing durable fabrics with a quick-collapse frame, Westcott's Rapid Box Switch softboxes offer the professional light modification that you're looking for without the tedious setup.

Premium Diffusion Fabric

Westcott's diffusion panels are constructed with an all-natural, unbleached nylon fabric. Unlike processed diffusion fabrics, these diffusers will soften your light source without altering its color temperature.

The Must-Have Accessory

The optional Deflector Plate minimizes hot spots and creates a stunning beauty-style light output. These plates are easy to use with all Rapid Box softboxes.

Rear-Mounted Lights

Westcott purposely designed the Rapid Box Switch with an external mount. By keeping your speedlight or strobe outside of the softbox, you can quickly access controls and utilize the line-of-sight (or optical wireless) functionality. Of course, radio triggers can be used as well.

Heavy-Duty Mounts for the Most Popular Lights

Switch Inserts attach your light source to any Rapid Box Switch light modifier in an instant. This durable all-metal adapter slides quickly into the rear tabs of your Rapid Box Switch and secures in place with the thumb-lock.
