DOP Choice SL1 SnapGrid

This award winning item is just a beauty. Your dreams have come true, you can now fit an egg crate onto a light in just a snap!

The SnapGrid was specifically designed by DoP Choice to fit both the SL1 Switch and the Mini Switch. It straps around the light with velcro in less than 30 seconds. It is made of high-quality fabric and its patent protected framing system makes this accessory very easy to fold into nothing for minimum space usage.

It will cut and direct the already-soft-light of both the SL1 Switch and the Mini Switch at 30/50° angle, in a way you have not seen before.



  • Antoine ROCH, AFCOn the movie “Attila Marcel” by Sylvain Chomet, 2012I was very happy with the SL1 on my last two features! The SL1 has a great beam, a high light output and a very precise color temperature; it is much more mastered than other Led lights I've used. Definitely a modern tool well adapted to the cinematography of current film-making.VIEW IN GALLERY >
  • Darius Khondji, AFC, ASCUsed more than 15 SL1 Switch on L'Oréal advert with John Legend“ Theses lights are great, they are very versatile and easy to use, quite powerful too. I love using modern ways of lighting and these are at the forefront of modern Cinematography ”VIEW IN GALLERY >
  • Laurent BARÈSOn the TV series « BRAQUO », season 2, 2012The SL1 is in total harmony with the evolution of present-day spectators' view. It's the first tool that takes in account the new visual environments of our cities and their feel.VIEW IN GALLERY >
  • Robbie Ryan, BSCFeature film: The Meyerowitz Stories“ I was thinking where’s the catch? Why is this light not on everybody’s wish list?... After using the Mini Switch on 3 features now, I can safely say there is no catch...It’s a wonderful light. Really it is!! It’s now my go-to light... ”VIEW IN GALLERY >
  • Stéphane Le ParcOn "Un bonheur n'arrive jamais seul" by James HuthThe main quality of the SL1 is it's slimness. Powerful, light and easy to rig, it has become a must-have on all my lists.VIEW IN GALLERY >
  • Thierry ARBOGAST, AFCOn the movie « MALAVITA » by Luc Besson, 2013I really liked the beam of the SL1, with the softness it has. Thanks to its size, it replaces a 4 tubes 4 feet, while being more powerfull . I used it on car rigs in broad daylight, it also turned out to be very usefull for its weight and low power consumption.VIEW IN GALLERY >
