The ProGlobe gives a surrounding light, similar to a bare bulb effect or, if mounted high up, like a street lamp source. It can also be used as background lighting or placed underneath a photography table.
Cinematographers call this a “Chinese lantern”. Its soft, bare bulb effect is perfect for quick location lighting. When used in combination with a softbox mounted around it, the ProGlobe creates very even light with soft shadows.
The ProGlobe comes either with mountings to attach softboxes, or with lock springs to custom mount on softbox speed ring mounts.
