Affordable softbox with one glaring flaw,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Photography Umbrella type Softbox 24" x 36" with Grid for Canon Nikon or Alien Bees 6090GD (Electronics)
This is a low end low priced softbox which works just fine. I've used it for a few headshots and the light is quite nice. If I had it to do over again, I'd probably pay a few bucks more and get a different softbox.
The reason for this is that once the softbox is set up, you cannot access your flash. For flash units which require you to make an adjustment on the flash itself (instead of remotely from your camera), you literally have no access without peeling back the diffusion layer and grid. If you only have to make a single adjustment, this isn't too tedious, but for constant adjusting, this is an absolute dealbreaker for this product.
Bottom line for me... for flashes that you can adjust remotely, this is a 5/5 product. For flashes you need to continually access for adjustments, it's a 3/5 product.
