Top customer reviews
I use it mainly with the Godox Wistro AD360, and the quality of light from this combo is very pleasing. However, the fiberglass rods are not very durable. I broke 6 of mine after using this softbox for about 10 sessions. The good thing is that the box came with two extra rods, and the authorized distributor is quite responsive and can provide you with replacement rods for $5 each.
If you're planning to buy this, then I recommend looking up up Glow ParaPop 28 from Adorama. It's pretty much the same as this, but it has multiple mounting options, and you can expect pretty good warranty service from Adorama for the next 2 years, should you need to replace a few broken fiberglass rods.
There is little to criticize. It is surprisingly lightweight for a fairly large soft box. I can put it on a medium-duty light stand with a small boom without worrying that it will tip over. Yet it does not feel fragile. It is well constructed with a tough nylon housing and heavy stitching. The mounting bracket has a small amount of flex to it but does not feel flimsy. Two extra fiberglass rods were provided but I have not needed them. The locking mechanism that holds the diffuser in the "open" position is solid and setup is very fast. Thanks to the two diffuser panels (the outer one is removable), this diffuser produces soft, even light. There is no hot spot. It easily accommodates my flash units (a Photix Mitros and LumoPro LP180) with straightforward adjustment knobs on the mounting bracket.
My only minor complaint is that when setting up the diffuser the last few rods are under quite a bit of tension and can be a little hard to click into place.
Overall, I am very pleased with the Speedbox Diffuser-70 and plan to buy another one at some point.
Yes, it's pricy. This isn't just for casual photography. There are TONS of options out there for 1/10 the price. HOWEVER...if you are looking for something that will last you and is built like a tank, this is for you. It's easy to open and easy to collapse. It also collapses into a small package that is easy to transport. I also bought it's little brother and they work GREAT together!
pros - super fast to set up and take down, very clean and even light, the box itself is constructed very well
cons - the attachment to lighting stands is made of plastic and doesn't fit standard lighting stands properly, it also doesn't connect as securely as my other diffusers.
Overall I'd recco the product but I wish they'd swap out the plastic connector for a metal one. I suspect its going to break some day and I'll have to find a new way to connect it to stands.
