The Ezybox Hotshoe with the all new Mark II bracket (LL LS2414) converts your battery operated flash Features gun from a harsh directional light into a much softer diffused light. Available in three sizes - 15" x 15", 21" x 21" and 30" x 30", the Ezybox Hotshoe folds flat for easy storage and can be assembled in a matter of minutes. There are also a number of accessories available including extending handles, a tilthead bracket, creative diffusers and a powerful clamp with brass spigot
The new bracket is:
• Made of Delrin (a Nylon derivative)
• Designed to flex, not bend
• Hole is rectangular to match that of a tilt-head flash
• Can fit the Nikon SB900 flash
• Can accept handle mount flash with optional mount plates for Metz 76, Metz 45 and Quantum flashes
• Can accept optional studio type accessories being released late in 2009 such as beauty dishes, snoots and reflectors.

This softbox is big but small during traveling and is therefore perfect for travel photography. I do a lot of boudoir photography and this one is the perfect one light that allows one all the flexibility one can dream off especially if you add the grid.
It folds down so you can even take it in your carry-on luggage. Combine it with a Bogen nano stand and a great speedlight like the Nikon SB 900 and your options are limitless. Using both layers of diffusing you get amazing soft wrapping light, removing either or both you can increase the hardness of the light easily.
Can't say enough about this product. Buy it! You won't regret it despite it's initial cost you will actually use it since it's so eazy! The 30x30" requires a bit more space to use, if space is limiting such as a wedding/house consider the 24x24". I have both!
I'm a portrait photographer shooting mainly on location. This softbox fits my shooting style and need for portability. I use it with a 580EXII and have absolutely no complaints! If I were hard pressed to list a con, the only thing I could say would be that the plastic hardware seems a bit delicate. I recommend the 30x30" over the 24x24". Go bigger!!
