Portable, soft light

I'm quite pleased at the softness of the light. It makes good use of shoe-mount flash power, since the light is focused into a small area, rather than spread out wide like in an umbrella or larger softbox. I like the decision of NOT having a secondary diffusion baffle (like those in a lager softbox), because illumination is already even across the surface, and adding a baffle would eat up some light power. It's very small and light. I never needed to disassemble it, since it doesn't take a...

I'm quite pleased at the softness of the light. It makes good use of shoe-mount flash power, since the light is focused into a small area, rather than spread out wide like in an umbrella or larger softbox. I like the decision of NOT having a secondary diffusion baffle (like those in a lager softbox), because illumination is already even across the surface, and adding a baffle would eat up some light power. It's very small and light. I never needed to disassemble it, since it doesn't take a lot of storage space anyways. The small size makes it easy to mount on a boom as a hair light, or to use outdoors on windy days. I like the flash mount that accepts different flash heights, especially for those people using a hot-shoe adapter for triggering the flash. The screw that allows height adjustment is a bit too small though, so when tighten by hand without tools, the flash is a little wobbly. One of the thumbscrew has a hole on the bottom that allows mounting the whole softbox to a lightstand or flash bracket.

Good for the money, a bit flimsy,

I like this pack overall. When i received i got two of the small flash brackets, and i thought how funny that was, well next day opening the bag the piece drops and the screw that tights the flash brakes apart, it may be replaced but thanks i got the other one haven't tried, i'm more careful now, it wasn't a big fall so i find it a bit fragile. Next you have to tighten the flash as most as you can and make sure that it worked out, i dropped a flash for not tighten hard, although i feel like ...

I like this pack overall. When i received i got two of the small flash brackets, and i thought how funny that was, well next day opening the bag the piece drops and the screw that tights the flash brakes apart, it may be replaced but thanks i got the other one haven't tried, i'm more careful now, it wasn't a big fall so i find it a bit fragile. Next you have to tighten the flash as most as you can and make sure that it worked out, i dropped a flash for not tighten hard, although i feel like i could tight to much and break the piece (the bracket not the shoe). Once tight your flash is safe. The other thing is that the aluminum sticks are a bit fragile, if you don't tore it a part carefully the bend a bit to much, what worries me when straighten them back to normal, cause it feels that it could be brake. So at the end is loads cheaper than the lastolite, but not that cheap. The effects that i got, is as expected from a softbox this size, hard but soft. Really cool look.

Good buy, so far

Not really too difficult to assemble, takes a few minutes. Seem to work very well with my flash units.

The build quality is really cheap and I can tell it won't last long. If you're going to use it a lot. Save your money. Over prized product.

This is My Second One

By

 -  Professional

This is my Second unit. I uses almost every time on wedding and fashion photography as my principal light. I use with a big Flash Head Sunpak 622. Is not necessarily get additional items to setup as main light. Cons.: Diffuse so much. Is difficult to use on hard sun lights (as 12:00p.m.). I always use to mix lights, ambiance and flash light. I use in all my weddings and editorial photography as main. Better use at night.

Great product!

I've not used it extensively, but it appears to be decently durable. If you were going to use it a lot, I'd probably spring for something a little more expensive/heavier quality. I don't own a light stand so I use my tripod, which works pretty well for the time being. I'll probably be getting a light stand in the near future. Overall it's a great product!

Not bad for the money

It's a super easy to set up softbox on the fly. I've used it a lot for quick portraits during weddings. I'd like to get something bigger but for the speedlights its great.

Great way to spread out the light from your off-camera flash. I use it for portraits.

I used this product to soften and spread the light from my SB-800 while its off camera. This products works as designed and is very easy to move into position when used with a light stand or boom.
