Customer Reviews

High quality material and well crafted.
A. Fernandez
Mine did not include instructions for assembly, and I wish I had looked online before making an attempt to put it together.
Kevin LaFata
I ended up ripping one of them because I had to use so much force to get the metal rods in place.

A softbox for $20? You bet. Although not made for everyday commercial use on location shoots, this softbox is perfect for being a piece of permanent hardware in the studio. It does its job well. The fabric/stitching/velcro would not stand up to constant assembly and disassembly. Speaking of assembly, no instructions are included, but Cowboy Studios provides a PDF on their website. Once you've put it together and taken it apart a few times, zero thought is required for the process. If using outdoors, be sure and weight your light stand as the softbox has quite a surface area and the slightest breeze will send everything flying. Overall, Cowboy Studio's softbox is a terrific value.

High quality material and well crafted. I had visited a website to see how to assemble one of these soft boxes before mine arrived and it seemed difficult to assemble. If the guy on the video was having a hard time, I knew that I could not expect to have an easier time. So I will not count that against the product. I assembled mine and decided to store them away built. I am sure with some time and a lot of patience someone could get very skilled at assembling these boxes but I rather spend my time taking pictures and not building boxes. I purchased two and I am very happy with the results. Again, the quality is there. The black material is thick and the reflective insides is durable. The ring is metal and heavy, meaning not a cheap plastic. I highly recommend the soft boxes. Did I mention the quality? oh yeah. This is a good value.

Size Name: 16in x 16in Verified Purchase
The only reason that this product got one star is because of Amazon and the wonderful customer service I receive from THEM and their prompt shipping methods.

This product is a joke. First of all, the exterior of the softbox does not completely fit together causing light to "spill" out of the rear of the softbox, unless you lay a towel or some other dark cloth over the thing. In other words, the velcro does not close around the area of the monolight. The tips of the stability rods fall off of the rods themselves leaving you crawling around on the floor to find them. I would post a picture but I am not home right now while writing this review. I am completely dissatisfied and intend to contact the seller "cowboy studios" and let them know how unhappy I am with their product. I will end up purchasing a softbox from somewhere else because I would be embarrassed to bring this anywhere with me. It is definitely not what it looks like in the picture.

Completely disgusted and disillusioned!!

Size Name: 16in x 16in
i should first start by saying that this review might not apply to everyone who ordered this product. i have a strong feeling that what i got was not made right. what i got and what is in these pictures are almost the same but slightly different.
here are the differences
1. the speeding (circular metal piece) was not the same at all.
2. the 4 rods on the inside did not bend like they are supposed to
3. the size. the pictures shown are very deceptive.
while trying to assemble the softbox, i knew exactly how to put it together but physically wasn't able to. if i were to try to bend the rods, i would end up hurting myself. i would hate for one of them to snap while in front of a client.
I even looked up video tutorials and they had no problem at all.
so, unfortunately, i am returning my softboxes and will hopefully find better ones.

I'm a retired professional Photographer and Certified Photo Finishing Engineer of 25 yrs. (Pre-Digital)
CowboyStudio 20 x 28in Photo Softbox for Strobe with Carry Case

This Soft-Box is every bit as good as the one's sold 30 years ago to Pro's at a fraction of the price. With the inner diffusion panel it may even be better than what I use to use. Back when I was in business we used strobes and had to also use a light meter to determine the camera settings. The strobes were adapted with what was called a modeling lamp to assist in "Seeing the Light" yet the output did not match the strobe so it was hit and miss. I ran a lot of tests using string and knots and documented the test well so I would learn what my lights were doing. I suppose you still can use a strobe buy why would you.. With digital photography you can use daylight balanced fluorescent bulbs that are on at the power that you are using. This allows you to "See the Light" to determine where you want to place your light.

This is ideal since "what you see is what you get" taking a lot of the work away allows a beginner to take quality images that rival what a professional photographer may provide. Of coarse the more practice the better you become. But today you don't have to spend anything on film and photo paper and god forbid the environmental impact of chemistry and silver in the paper.

I bought the LimoStudio High Quality 4 Socket- controller with this softbox, it fits as if it was made to fit. Read my review on the socket because their title will confuse you to what it really is. This light controller lets you flip a switch to turn off 2 of the bulbs effectively cutting the intensity of the light in half. You may also use it with Umbrella reflectors.
