Points off just for technical issues only, otherwise great piece.

I really would have given this product a solid 4 stars but the reason for the 3 stars is something critical to my work.
Solid and Durable
Its a miniture soft box, which is great.
To have this work correctly, the softbox needs to almost fit flush against the flash head, which means, due the its size, it needs to be secured close the the flash bend. It becomes a tug-of war when you need to bend the flash head when the tightly secured piece impedes movement.
When you move the piece further up the flash, then there's another challenge.
It's not as secure on the flash
The neck of difuser blocks the actual output (because it's so long and the difuser head kinda hangs off), at first I thought something was wrong with my flash head, when I removed the diffuser, my flash was fine. Just like some other reviewer here, due to the size of the diffuser, it does block the AF light.
After going through the learning curve of application this piece is great, I would recommend it. Just heads up on what to expect.
