Worth it once put together

A good addition to the 100ws budget speedlight. Would it have bankrupted adorama to include instructions? First time ever assembling and I ws busy swearing up a storm. Used it for a while and it was worth but could have been so much easier with a single sheet with pictures

no directions to assemble

I guess you get what you pay for. I have yet to figure out how to assemble softbox and adorama's horrible customer service doesn't help. I have tried several times to contact by phone and always get an answering machine. I am not impressed.

How Do I Put Together

By

from St Louis  -  Pro Photographer

How to put together... Note: The soft box unit must be assembled off the light and placed on light after assembled. 1. The soft box has a large opening and a smaller opening. Starting at the smaller opening; slide 1st post along the edge of one of the four corners of the light box. It should fit snuggly into a small pocket at the end of each corner. Continue this for all four corners. 2. Identify the bracket that fits on the front of your light. 3. Place each post into the one of the four holding holes on the bracket. The 1st two posts will fit in holes easily. The 3rd will be more difficult and will require bending the post (it will not break). 4. The 4th and final post will need to be removed out of the small pocket and pushed past the front of the soft box. This will allow the space needed to insert the final post into the holding hole. Insert one end of the post in the bracket and slide the soft box up along the 4th post and into the pocket. You will be required to bend the 4th post to make it fit. 5. Now the soft box the ready to be placed on the light. Note: Do not over tighten light box bracket to light, it may leave marks or damage light case at the point of contact.

Space Saver

By

Use for portraits and glamor shots. Traditional umbrella takes up more space. Takes some time to put together, but prefer over an umbrella.

Fantastic Softbox

By

from Frederick, MD  -  Pro Photographer

I needed a quick and small softbox so I purchased this little guy from Adorama.com. The only bad thing is that it didn't come with instructions on how to put it together. If you are a new photographer, you probably won't know how to assemble this guy. I made a video on how to assemble this product. [@]For the money, I'd definitely recommend this. It's great for portrait work and product photography, even if you are a seasoned photographer.

Nice even lighting

By

from Sherman Oaks, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Item works well with Flashpoint Budget 160 Monolight. No instructions, but I was able to put together in about ten minutes. Takes a little bit of force to get the softbox in the correct shape. Tip covers for the rods come loose easily.

Simple and easy to use.

By

from Atlanta  -  Photo Enthusiast

I was worried when I read all the reviews saying that they wish it came with instructions. When I got the thing I found it was fairly simple to put together. Just put the sticks in and hook the hooks to the loops and you are good to go. As far as the use of it is concerned it does everything you want a shadowbox to do. I'm personally using this as a hair light.

Works as advertised

By

from Las Vegas Nevada  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Got this in an attempt to get a softer light than with an umbrella but it actually turned out a little hotter. Works well for its intended purpose though. It would have been nice if it came with assembly directions though. Took 15 minutes to figure out how to assemble it.

Softbox for Budget Flash

By

from Pittsburgh, PA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Assembly of the unit is more awkward than difficult. Requires three hands. Once assembled the unit functions well
