Alas, I have ultimately settled on speedlites for most of my wedding work. Larger softboxes for speedlites are a pain due to the fragility and complication of setup. Umbrellas work reasonably well, though they require an adapter for the stand, and can cause the light stand to blow over fairly easily with only a minor gust of wind.
What benefit does this softbox have for me?
- 10 second setup. Slide it over the head of your flash and strap it down. Accommodates various size flashes too.
- Almost instant break down time.
- Folds down flat. Will fit in many camera bags with no problem.
- Has no fragile parts to crush or break. No need to worry about throwing it in your bag. It won't break easily.
- Increases the size of the light source by a factor of 10 or so for most flashes.
So yes, it's cheap, it works well, and aside from its' modest size has no real downsides. It's not perfect, but in a pinch it can't be beat for the price. Be sure to flip the front diffuser on your flash down when you use this. That will help spread out the beam and fully utilize the front surface area of the softbox.
Overall a great product.
It is easy to put on once you learn the secret. Here's the secret trick....put it on before attaching your external flash to your camera. The reason it's better to put on before is the Velcro strap is very snug and if your external flash swivels, it's just hard to hold the camera, flash and put it on all at the same time.
I use an off shoe flash cord and it works very well in this respect. I think this 6x8 size is just perfect for macro stock and general macro work as well as outdoors fill lighting.
You'll like it. I like it and I'm not that easy to please.
I have Nikon SB-800's and this fit right on with little fuss. The INCLUDED velcro strap worked well. No need to buy a kit to attach this to your speedlight. For it's size and price you can't expect miracles... this won't replace your 48" softbox. It will however give you a nice product at a very reasonable price. It's a good way to add a cheap, portable solution to create a somewhat softer light for off or on camera strobes.
Again, at this price, you can't beat it or complain if it doesnt last forever. I'm buying a second one.
Update, one reviewer mentioned the velcro inside of the diffuser. It is supposed to be there. Directly across from that velcro is a cloth like diffuser strap that is not mentioned anywhere on the site description or in the documentation. This white strip has other end of the velcro. It is hidden inside the diffuser.Read more ›

It does a decent job at diffusing the light when using a Canon 580EX. However, it is at the sacrifice of having a bulky (though not heavy) product attached to your camera.Published 10 days ago by Manh Nguyen

Fits any speed light. Diffuses the light great, making the light a little less intense and more soft and subtle. I use it when I can not plug in a big studio set. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Kristib
