This is a GREAT softbox. The price sort of hurts since it's like an umbrella but this softbox really gets the job done. It's light, durable, and give soft, diffused light on your subjects. I like working it with a speedlight or with my Einstein. It's sort of a pain to have to adjust your speed because you have to reach inside the thing to do it (which is why I need to memorize the placement of the dials on the SB-900 so I can do this without looking at it). One complaint you will hear a lot is that you can't get it down to the floor to shoot kids sitting down. Just don't put your lightstand through the zippered hold and the problem is solved! This is a great speedlight. I also have the Paul C Buff Giant softbox and I prefer this much much much more.

I knew this soft box would be large in my tiny studio space but I needed something this size for photographing newborns and toddlers.

I'm using it with an AlienBee 400 and in the small room it provides beautiful soft wrap around light; perfect on those gray rainy days when the window light I normally use just doesn't cut it.

I did the measurements so I knew what I would be dealing with but the product images makes it look much shallower than it actually is. It's a monster:) but well worth what I paid for it.

My space is about 11x12 and this is absolutely the biggest box I think I could reasonably use in here. I love the fact that it didn't require a speeding for setup since it folds just like an umbrella it is easy to setup and take down.

The 50" Westcott Apollo Softbox is an awesome light modifier. Out of all my light modifiers the the 50" Apollo is my favorite. I use it with Studio Strobes and Speed lights. When using speed lights I usually will mount 2-3 flashes in side on a bracket manly for quicker recycle time. With a single 580EXII I can get about f5.6 @ about 40" and ir produces window like quality light! I like the control I get with this softbox, it is nicely recessed and makes it very easy to feather your light.
The biggest draw back with this apollo is that you can"t get much angle on the box on a standard light stand. I use a Paul C. Buff "BABY BOOMER" offset arm. the offset arm allows for plenty of angle. [...]
I would recommend this softbox for anyone that love pretty light!

Got this after seeing the Zack Arias's "One Light" video. Yes, it is big. It's a commitment to get out and set up. This is my high quality softbox. The build quaility is great and I like it since different lights can be used inside. It's much nicer and tougher than my cheaper soft boxes. I do plan on using this for group shots where a lot of light is needed.
