June 3, 2022—There’s a new Snapbag® on the scene just in time for Astera’s latest LED wonder— Hydra. Custom-designed to perfectly fit the Hydra, the patented Snapbag softbox offers the added softening control discerning cinematographers request.

A perfect match for Hydra, the patented Snapbag SBATHY11 features DoPchoice’s new Snapshape material which makes setup smooth and hardware-free. The Snapbag neatly hook-and-loops directly to the Astera fixture and breaks down just as easily by folding into its black carry bag. It measures 13 x 10.6 x 7.1 in/33 x 27 x 18cm, and weighs just 0.7-lb /.3kg. For added control, each unit comes with two front diffusions, Magic Cloth® and a half grid cloth, which quickly install via hook-and-loop within the front lip of the soft box.

Featuring a metallic fabric interior, Snapbags are known for brightening and evening out the illumination—to make make the most of the LED fixture.
