DoPchoice displays its latest at Cine Gear Expo LA, highlighting their family of light control tools, and is ready for Astera’s new gamechanger, the LeoFresnel. Thanks to an adapter included in the box with each LeoFresnel fixture, there’s instant compatibility with DoPchoice’s Rabbit-Rounder® which mounts the range of Snapbag® lighting control solutions.

Rabbit-Rounder is the one-system-fits-all answer to mounting DoPchoice softboxes across a range of lights. The rugged and future-proof design opens up a world of lighting possibilities by using the rectangular Snapbag Medium, 3-foot Octa 3 and Medium 50mm Lantern. Each features metallic interior fabric for the most efficient output. Octas and Rectangulars come with Magic Cloth. For added directional control Snapgrids® may be quickly hooked on the front. For the Lantern, the line offers a customized, removable Skirt with 2 zip-up sides to cut spillage and shape output. All Snapbags set up in seconds and fold up fast into their own pouch.

The Rabbit-Rounder system is designed to accommodate most popular Bowens-mount type lights including Nanlux NL-Mount and Qseries Fiilex fixtures. Quick and easy to use, the LeoFresel twist-locks snugly into place on the Rabbit-Rounder to easily slip onto the front of the fixture.

These and more will be shown at Cine Gear Expo LA, NY Streets #30. Snapbags, Snapboxes, Snapgrids and Rabbit-Rounders are manufactured by DoPchoice and TRP Worldwide and are available through authorized dealers. Visit https://www.dopchoice.com/leo-launch-rabbit-rounder/
