Fabulous Product

I have used plenty of mini soft boxes before in my work as a photojournalist and wedding photographer. The construction is solid, and though I was a bit uncomfortable with the Velcro being a permanent addition to the outside of the flash, I actually like it, it's ease of recurrent installation, not having to contend with cumbersome straps. Great product. I installed it on my canon 430EX II.

Something to consider......

This is a very heavy diffuser for it's small size. You will have to leave velcro on your camera at all times to use this product. The weight of this diffuser is enough to where your flash will lose it's position and depending on the angle - may lose balance when used at a 90 degree angle. As for the diffusing properties - it works great. :)

IT IS THE PERFECT SPEED LIGHT DEFUSER

By

from DEERFIELD BEACH FLORIDA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I USE 3 NIKON FLASHES, FIRED REMOTELY BY RADIO CONTROL. I SHOOT GLAMOUR PHOTOS FOR MODERL PORTFOLIOS. SO I WANT A SOFT LIGHT. NO HARSH SHADOWS. MY STUDIO IS SMALL. DON;T HAVE ROOM FOR A LARGE SOFT BOX. OR UMBRELLAS. SO THESE LUMIQUEST LQ108 DO THE JOB VERY NICELY. YOU GET THE VELCRO STRIPS TO PUT ON YOUR FLASH UNITS. THEY COME ON AND OFF QUICKLY, AND FOLD FLAT. TAKE LITTLE IN YOUR CAMERA CASE.

Love It!

By

from Lombard, IL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I just keep it right on my sb-700, a little custom mounting finesse and it stays on all the time! Not too bulky, perfect size, not freak-show huge but results are nice and soft, just what I wanted. Thanks!!!

Great little softbox

By

from MI  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this to soften hot shoe flash, and it works great. I recently used it while photographing birds of prey as fill light. No harsh lighting- worked well and easy to put on flash unit in the field.

Softens shadows as advertised. Need to adjust flash output to compensate for unit.
