The LumiQuest Strobist Kit offers three of the favorite LumiQuest light modifier products of David Hobby, author of "The Strobist" blog. This kit includes the Promax Softbox III, the FXtra Compact Gel Holder with 8 Rosco Gels and two UltraStraps, a secure non-adhesive mounting strap, all in a convenient storage wallet. If you want to expand your portable flash techniques, this kit is a good place to start. The Softbox III is approximately 20 times the size of a portable flash head, which means the light produced will cover a wide area and have very soft shadows.
The FXtra is a gel holder with 8 gels, including gels for balancing your strobe with incandescent and fluorescent light, plus red, blue and yellow special effects gels. In addition, to attach your accessories to your flash, two UltraStraps are included, which apply a constant 3 lb of pressure to the flash for a secure fit.

Great product. The straps work perfectly. The gel holder is a good idea. The softbox has a good size and works well with the straps. The gels are versatile. I think everything is great for a beginner in the lightning world, like me. I would appreciate some additional guidance on how to match my Nikon camera settings with the gels. For instance, what kind of white balance settings should I use to compensate when using some of them. I realize I can test it myself, and I also understand that there are specific Nikon products if I want this kind of "compatibility". Anyway, I think they could provide some kind of guidance, at least for the most important brands.
