Don't drop your flash
on July 26, 2010
I use only speed lights for my lighting as I am only a location photographer. So when I saw this soft box kit and learned that it was for speed lights, I bought one and was very excited to start using it. The construction of the box itself is great. It sets up and tears down very easy and is very compact and light weight. The reason I gave it a three star is because of the hot shoe holder on the bracket. It has absolutely no way to lock your flash to it, which resulted to me dropping my brand new $500 flash onto the pavement. My flash survived, but took some beating. Even though I gave this kit a three star, I still highly recommend it, as I haven't seen anything else on the market for the location photographer. If you choose to buy this kit, I suggest that you tether your flash to the bracket so that it doesn't take a nasty fall.
