The Westcott 6 x 7" PocketBox Mini Flash Softbox is an ideal way to soften the output of your flash. The rectangular shape yields a wide beam spread which is great for portraiture. The PocketBox Mini sets up in seconds and is compatible with any shoe-type or small flash head, whether you're using it on or off camera.
First and foremost, it eliminates the harsh shadows produced with direct flash, especially when the flash is the main source of light. Since the light is diffused, redeye is minimized and contrast softened. The PocketBox Mini features a silver interior to maximize your flash's output, as well as a removable diffusion panel for even output.

Great softbox for speed light. If you shoot in manual mode and do not use TTL you can not beat this pocket box for the price. There are rubberized tabs that keep the box from slipping and a piece of elastic with Velcro that wraps around to secure the tabs.
This will do for a quick on location portrait setup. It is soft enough but still directional to create a nice location portrait in an office or boardroom.
