  • White reflective surface, free of bleaches and fluorescence, perfectly reflects the color of your light.
  • Stout black nylon cover stops all stray and ricochet, enhancing total light control.
  • Unique construction consisting of ten panels instead of the usual eight gives more reflective surface and a more perfect circle of light, so flattering when seen as catch lights in the eyes.
  • So versatile a product is the SOFTLIGHTER II, that by removal of its black cover and a reversal of direction, the SOFTLIGHTER II becomes everything a softbox promises. It becomes a shoot through diffuser providing light that can be used either as a main light source or as a flattering fill
  • Final touch. The SOFTLIGHTER II sets up in moments. Its unique translucent cover fits directly onto the tips of the SOFTLIGHTER II. A totally fireproof material creates its own collar around the lighthead, with no time consuming fitting of mounting collars or rib setups involved.

As a photographer I am always looking for lighting modifiers that help me make better images for my clients. When I saw the design of this product it made sense to me and I ordered one. It has not been put away since! It is the perfect solution for a large, soft fill light from above and behind camera or as the key light in many situations. It is my go-to for one-light setups that require less contrast. It is very easy to use and weighs nothing. I use mine on a boom with an Alien Bee AB-800 monolight in my studio. I may consider a smaller one in the future for location shooting.

Highly Recommended

I actually have tons of these in the off-brand name but there is only one original softlighter and you can clearly tell it when you get this badboy. It is huge and well made. I have used it religiously for couples and families. The softlighter has been praised by so many and I am just another. It's light is so well diffused that you cannot help but love it. What I love most is I can use it even far away and it gives an amazing glow to the subject(s) your shooting, it's like your own moveable sunlight. unlike other diffusers that may fall off or leave out some of your subjects, this works excellent when photographing families of 3-4 when paired with a great lens kit. I have made good money off of this and have used it in weddings and portraits. You cannot go wrong with this, order it today! (Note: it is big so you must have a sturdy stand to support it if you are using outdoors as the wind will have fun with it!)

I'm a Softlighter fan...I've been using the 46" versions for years. They are my go to modifier when soft, wrapping light is called for. I purchased the 60" inch version for a project that required very soft light and am very pleased that I wasn't disappointed. If you haven't used one of these and need to softly light portraits...you can't go wrong. Both sizes of my Softlighters are well built. One last thing...the removable umbrella shaft means that you can snug these things right up to your model...literally inches away, when you really need the softest light available...

I ordered this product because I do like the light it produces... when it's functional.

It may have just been my order alone, but when I received the product the main rod was bent so that the umbrella would not fully extend open.

I quickly sent them a message - for which I did not receive any feedback for within a few days. My second action was to call them, so I did. I spoke with customer service finally and they let me know that they would fully refund the product but only after they've received the broken one back. Which I can understand... However here's the caveat, They would not automatically send me a replacement... The expectation is that I would spend even more money ordering another Umbrella with no certainty that the money from the initial purchase would be refunded.. let alone the process time for any kind of refund.

From a buyer's perspective, the turn around on everything would take over 2 weeks to find any kind of resolution.. Which is far from the expected 2/3 business days to receive a functional product.

Well, at least I did receive a response to my initial e-mail..... after I had already spoken with the costumer care representative.

I will give the product itself, when perfectly functional, 4 stars...
Customer service and business protocol get 1 start.... so meeting in the middle at 2 over all.

I have three Softlighters and I love them. They do everything a softbox does and I don't have to futz around with speedrings and putting them together/breaking them down.
The only caveat is they are a bit delicate and it's easy to bend the umbrella ribs. I did that once on a 60" and it cost me a new one.
Overall, I highly recommend both the 48" and the 60".

I can see why so many photographers love this umbrella. The ability to get it close to a model or subject and the beautiful light it gives is amazing. Very even lighting patterns. Used with a Profoto D1 500 and images were great, even during the day. The only con, if any, is that in high wind situations, and I mean anything over 5 knots, this becomes a sail. Outside of that, this thing is amazing!

I use this with a 3way hot-shoe flash holder, firing the flashes with pocket wizards. Basically a 5-foot wide softbox. Nice.

I wanted a big portable light modifier and after seeing this mentioned so many times I thought I would give it a try... so far I love it! First I didn't realize you can remove the black backing and use it as a shoot-through. The front diffuser is also an add on, so you really have three ways to use this product. I use it with a speed light. I made a simple bracket that lays my flash horizontally and using that my speedlight works just fine. This model is large enough to shoot a waist on up shot with the light behind as a backlight. I'm very much looking forward to shooting more with this!
