5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Even Think About it!!!, October 29, 2011

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Neewer® 24"x24"/60cmx60cm Professional Protable Foldable Off-Camera Flash Photography Studio, Portrait Soft Box with L-shaped bracket & flash Ring, Outer Diffuser and Carrying Case for Nikon SB900 SB800 SB600, Canon 580EXII 580EX 430EXII 430EX, Neewer TT860, TT850, TT560, Yongnuo, Nissin, Pentax, Olympus and Other Speedlite with Universal Hotshoe (Electronics)
If you are looking for a portable soft box stop and purchase this bad boy! Incredibly portable, double defused - instant setup, great soft light for the size (sorry, size and soft light go hand in hand).

I own countless modifiers and several I am happy with but this is my new top gun (for this size range). My previous favorite was the Westcott Apollo 28" Light Modifier with Recessed Front but it is a bit of a pain for quick setup and mobility (umbrella shaft hollow - very sad and no double diffusion although it is bounced).

This light is solid, the bracket setup, if purchased separately probably comes close to half or more of this price! It is plastic but feels very solid and had to double check to make sure it was not metal. Since I use Radio Poppers the cold shoe comes off without the screw falling off (awesome) and I am able to attach with no problems because of height and distance adjustments.

This thing is well worth it, no regrets unless you expect a 30"x60" soft box effect. Buy this thing with no fear - my highest approval.

Side note: Adorama pro clamp a pain to use, still works but annoying. Stick with the super clamp.

Henry..you seem to know a lot..i love the softbox but cant figure out how to fit it back in the little black bag. and i am afraid to mess with it too much. i can put reflecters back with the twisting motion but this eludes me. thanks

Henry says:
Yes you can. In fact I fold it up with both defusers still on. Don't know if this will shorten the life of the product but worth it in time savings. It's a bit tricky to fold but definitely YES

Search Youtube for "folding a softbox" - yes it is a twist like with a reflector or light tent. Watch the 2:19 minute video uploaded by Cowboy Studio on Youtube!

Not clear what you mean in the last paragraph (Adorama clamp vs. super clamp). Otherwise very informative review, thanks.

Just adding some extra info not related to this product. Adorama sells a pro clamp which is supposed to be like the super clamp but falls short. Just thought I would mention it here since I got them at the same time (odd, I know). There is a good review of these clamps on youtube.

Does it indeed come with double outer diffusers? (two white sheets, to be exact)

Paul says:
Yes - there is the obvious front panel and inside (halfway between front panel and round hole) there is another panel attached with velcro.
