About Westcott

Apollo are constructed using an umbrella frame. No speed rings are needed, just use the umbrella receptacle on your light. Easy opening and closing means easy set-up and takedown. The square or rectangular shape allows you to scrim or control the light more readily.

For direct diffusion, position the light facing the white diffuser panel. The light will have a bright center with a soft edge. The distance of the light to the diffuser panel will govern the brightness of the center of the light.

For indirect diffusion, mount the Apollo with the light facing towards the back of the light modifier. With the light in this position, light will bounce off the silver metalized back of the unit and produce a more uniform, softer light.

Most Liked Positive Review

 

Tough product with a soft side.

The Micro Apollo is easy to use and works great and offers a soft light to enhance your subject while on the go. It collapses down to nearly nothing and travels great and is always ready when you need it.

Most Liked Negative Review

 

ok, but not great

very difficult to attach to camera (as noted by other reviewers) and hold in place, softens only somewhat; doesn't do any better than a SBM light diffuser

Compact, Easy To Use

By

from Bakersfield, CA  -  Experienced

This fit perfectly on my Vivitar pivot head flash unit. Never worry about it falling off. Makes a nice soft even light,removes harshness. Even improves bounce lighting. Flattens out, easy to keep in camera bag. Love it.

Performs just as advertised.

By

from North Carolina  -  Experienced

When bouncing the light off walls and ceilings is not an option, this micro sized soft box works very well. There are no hotspots, and the results are quite soft relative to the size of the diffuser. The Velcro fastener is opposite that of most flash diffusing attachments, but it only takes a few minutes to reverse them. It is a must for event photography, and as with most Westcott products, it is very good quality.

Performs just as advertised.

This product performs as expected. It is large enough to spread and soften the light. There are no significant hot spots. In addition, it is not so big that it becomes intimidating at either an event or a reception. The Velcro attachment is in reverse to most other modifiers for Speedlights, but that is an easy fix to switch them around.

Great when you can't bounce

By

from Indiana  -  Experienced

I bought this for the times when I need some flash but can't bounce or when I don't have the time or space to set up off-camera flash. It softens the light just enough to avoid the "snapshot" look. It also works as a good diffuser for macro work. I found the included Velcro patches too small and weak to hold the Apollo, and they peeled off the flash as I removed the Apollo. Instead I replaced the Velcro on the Apollo and put an elastic Velcro strap on the flash. It works great now.

Works for me!

By

from Northern Virginia  -  Semi-pro Photographer

So it's not the easiest to attach but it does a great job of diffusing light if you are using an on-camera flash. It does the job I needed.

Excellent product!!

By

from Brownsville, Tx.  -  Wedding Photographer

This tiny softbox it's all you need to soften the harsh light of the flash, easy to install and remove. You can use it as a hair light in the studio also or to do a very soft fill outdoors. Buy it!!!

Shopper  Will this work on a led light shoe mounted on a 7d?
RACHAEL H  I'm not sure what an LED light shoe is; I've used it on my Canon 580EXII on-camera. Works great. I'd call customer service; they're extremely helpful.
