September 14, 2023 – Just as ARRI’s SkyPanel X releases, DoPchoice is ready with their popular range of light control accessories. By incorporating the RABBIT EARS® mounting system, SkyPanel X users have a choice of 6 compatible SNAPBAGS–®Rectangular, Lantern, or Octagonal, in various sizes. Additionally, SNAPGRIDS® quickly install either on the fixture front with the multifunctional SNAPBOX® SNOOT, or directly around the SkyPanel X’s Hyper Optics or Dome.
The dedicated SNAPBAG® for the SkyPanel X21 attaches to the front of the fixture hardware-free, to produce broad and pleasing soft light. Different effects are created by using it with or without ARRI’s Dome. Even more looks can be achieved by applying the supplied Half Grid Cloth and Magic Cloth® diffusion.
In addition to the dedicated rectangular version, DoPchoice’s versatile Rabbit Ears makes it easy to mount other Snapbags including the Lantern and Octagonals in 3′, 5′ and 7′ diameters. Each feature metallic interior fabric for maximum efficiency. All Snapbags set up in seconds and fold up fast into their own pouch.
For more directional output there’s SNAPGRID® for the SkyPanel X which attaches directly to the front of the fixture and goes right over the Hyper Optics or can be used in combination with the Dome to provide 30° directional light—free of side spill.
A new addition, designed just for the X21, is the SNAPBOX®-SNOOT which provides the ultimate spill light protection from all sides in Open Face, Dome, or Hyper Optic mode. Straight-walled, this rigid fabric light director is 190mm/7.5 inches deep and quickly fits the fixture via elastic corners. When more directional output is required, the Snapgrid attaches directly to the Snoot.
These and more DoPchoice light directing tools will be shown at IBC Expo in ARRI stand #12.F28.
Snapbags, Snapboxes, Snapgrids and Rabbit Ears are manufactured by DoPchoice and TRP Worldwide and are available through authorized dealers. Visit https://www.dopchoice.com/subpage/skypanel-x/
