Weak product broken within months

Used a few times for location photography. A few months after purchasing found it broken in the bag. The set screw in one the shoe mounts broke off. This is reported in another review here so most likely it is a flaw in the design. Be aware, treat it cautiously.

Flimsy Design

By

from Los Angeles, CA  -  Pro Photographer

I used this accessory on a Photoflex lightstand at wedding receptions and for lifestyle portraiture. Within months, one of the two shoe mounts broke and the other two pieces never felt firmly in place. The lightstand broke today so I'll be replacing the entire set up ASAP.

Flimsy, but works

By

from Lawrenceville, GA  -  Pro Photographer

I've used this with the Small LiteDome softbox, but don't recommend it. The L-Bracket is too weak to hold even the small softbox. This product says it's intended for the X-Small softbox, but that's not much bigger than the much easier to use (and pack!) LumiQuest SBIII or LTp. If you're looking for a larger softbox for your hot shoe flashes, this is not what you want. Get the Lastolite Ezybox Softbox for hot shoe flashes.

good addition to the on location kit

By

from Orange, ca  -  Pro Photographer

good addition to my on location kit. Keeps a strobe and transceiver together, in one place, so neither is hanging around. We use them regularly for our off camera fill flashes when space and a clean pro look is important. Just don't drop it with the strobe attached. This unit will hold up, but the plastic mount on the strobe won't.

Sub-par. Broke within months.

By

from Washington, D.C.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I do mostly on location photography and travel a lot. Within a couple of trip this piece was falling apart (literally). The little bolt on the side of the hot shoe holder snaped off. The metal lead to keep one of the pieces on track became lose and before a headshot photoshoot just fell off. The material is quite weak and bends even with a 16"x22"x13" softbox. If you do get this make sure you take extra good care of it. Put it in a safety box if you travel.

Satisfactory for the price.

good but expensive

By

from Amman - Jordan  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I liked the idea of using my camera Flash 580II with a soft box. I've even attached it to a 24"x24" softbox and worked well, I prefer if its a little bit thicker. Also over priced.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
LOUIS C  It works great at events and it is sturdy.
John J  Is this the connector I need for the Small Octobox #FVMOD3? I'll be using Lumopro LP160 Speedlights.
DENNIS C  This works very well on my Small Octobox. I use it with a PocketWizard TT5 with a Canon 580 EXII mounted on it. It does have a little wobble to it but has held up very good.
