Product Description

Style: with Grid

This softbox is great for Nikon Canon speedring flash as well as small strobe flashes. It pops open like an umbrella that makes setup much faster. It includes one 30" octagon octbox softbox and one front diffuser and directional grid. It will need a flash umbrella mount for it to work with the softbox.

Diameter of the octagonal box is 30 inches, 15" deep;
Compact design for portability with Grid;
Opens up like an umbrellla Great for locations;
Works on Nikon, Canon speedlights as well as small strobes;
No rods to assembly and struggle;
Storage case is included.
This softbox is made to snap open like and umbrella to create a full sized octagon softbox in seconds.
You can use a standard umbrella flash bracket to accept the umbrella pole through the bracket and allow for a range of motion to the light movement.
The zipper close hole in the softbox allows a stand to insert to the flash bracket to secure the bracket without light leaks.

Customer Reviews

Very light weight, easy to set up.
Hiram B
The only problem I have is that the umbrella rods are bent, so it doesn't even open up as an octagon, it opens more as a distorted square.

The quality is very good the lining's are good and the grid is well built and works really well.

Works as advertised- but its definitely not made to withstand anything other than occasional use. I have been using it with three bent ribs because they are so thin.
If its used gently (open it gently- the ribs will bend if you're too aggressive) and always indoors it will work great for you. However, if you're a pro (or aspire to be) skip this product and buy a Westcott Apollo: its 3x the price but will be able to take the daily use and last much, much longer.

It is really cool thst you can use this umbrella softbox not just with a speedlite but witha monolight as well. I initially bought for easy portability and setup for location shoots but Ive been using it in my studio as well with alien bees B800. Excellent results!

Alright- here's the deal. This is a great little unit. The fact that it opens up like an umbrella is SO convenient. Takes 2 seconds to pop up or tear down. It's also nice and taught. However, I have a few issues with it. First off, the shaft to mount it is very short. I would have preferred a slightly longer shaft that could then poke through the diffuser if you use it. IT would give a little more latitude to how close the flash is. (The diffuser is nice, and sturdy. Easy pop on and off.) You don't have to use the diffuser. It attaches with velcro around the edges. Your flash *could* be further from the unit itself had they included a slightly longer shaft.

The zippered slat to slide a light stand through is peculiar to me. As you can see, it is a good 6" long. The issue is that it goes backward toward the center of the umbrella. That would allow you to.......point it up. Not exactly useful. Having a light on a stand usually means you need to tilt it.....down. You cannot do that with the light stand through the slot. I personally don't slide the stand through the zippered slot. I just attach the diffuser at the top and pull it down the sides as far as I can in relation to where the stand catches it. It would have been more useful if the zipper zipped straight to the edge of the unit. In stead, it stops at the black "collar" around the front of the unit where the velcro strip is. I'm considering cutting through where the zipper is at the edge and then getting a couple of velcro strips to hold the slit shut when I don't need a light stand to poke through right there.

The unit itself is sturdy and is highly reflective in the interior. I've used it to make some very nice head shots and I would buy it again. For the price, you can't beat it.

I really like the price and light quality, however it's durability is questionable. It tipped over in the wind into a shrub and bent a rod. It's still workable, but to have that happen on my first shoot was slightly disappointing.

The other knock is that it takes a considerable amount of time to setup compared to some other "instant" softboxes that pop up with the screen in place. You have to go around each of the 8 segments and push the velcro to connect for both the white scrim and black grid. So it's not something you can just put together in 15 seconds between locations on a wedding day. More like a "setup and carry as one piece" type of thing

I've gotten good photos using this with a single Sony HVL-F43AM Sony Alpha System HVL-F43AM Flash Unit for Alpha DSLR and a silver reflector.

You'll have to mount this on a stand extension with a swivel head under it to get much tilt out of it. The swivel on the umbrella adapter just doesn't move much inside of this softbox.

A boom arm might work too.

This octobox is one of the easiest I have found to set up. It is basically an umbrella internally that pops open in which you put on a stand. Put a speedlight or strobe in it and you're good to go!

It gives off an amazingly soft large light source which makes for a great fill light for outdoor or environmental portraiture, or wedding portraiture.

All around this is a great product from cowboy Studios, . it seem well built and very east set up and take down

Great value, for great products, just what photography needs.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friendCowboyStudio Pro 30-Inch Octagon Umbrella Speedlite Softbox for Nikon Canon Flash Light

i think somewhere the zipper idea got messed up. i think the zipper should be on the softbox cover actually. otherwise you gotta strain the cover to angle it downward, how you would need to. i doubt very many people would be pointing these lights upward at anything very often. the zipper on the umbrella itself does have one advantage, you can reach in to adjust your speedlight if you need to without undoing the whole cover. im considering have the covers be fixed with a zipper at the local seamstress
