We've scoured the web to find out what people are saying about our Flashpoint and 3Pod photography accessories so you don't have to! Take a look at our glowing reviews.

Glow HexaPop

Glow HexaPop 24" for portable off camera flash - R Series

"Overall, I think the product is actually pretty solid. It’s easy to use, quick to set up, and creates a very nice light when photographing. The hexagon-shaped silver reflector umbrella with the front diffusion panel gives a pleasant, round catch light in the eyes, which is certainly a plus for portraits. The areas that I felt could be improved don’t affect its performance, but could improve the Glow HexaPop if they are addressed. With a street price of $134.95 for the 24-inch version and $109.95 for the 20-inch, it is a safe investment if you want to turn your speedlight into portable studio-style flash."

Glow 71" Grand Softbox with Speedring 

"The Glow series of products by Flashpoint is proving to be a consistently reliable and quality resource for professional photographers. I had some trouble with the initial set up today, but overall, this Glow 71″ Grand Softbox Review is a positive one. I would recommend the Grand Softbox and I will continue to use it for portraits and product shoots.

The Grand Softbox can be used without the white diffuser/baffle in order to get more of a crisp look, since the light will reflect off the silver lining of the Grand Softbox. With the diffuser, the light more resembles a large soft window, which I really like.

It ships with a bag for everything to neatly fit into once folded and taken down. If you want something versatile, efficient, and large for your studio strobes, the Grand Softbox is a great choice."
