Product Description

A dramatic, eye catching photo can mean dramatic profits. Getting a well exposed photo is extremely important. Photographers often turn to a flash to help light the scene. The problem is that flash can cause harsh reflections or glare spots or create deep shadows that distract viewers. This little, portable universal external flash diffuser will prevent those problems when using a flash. Simply put the unit over the camera's flash, point and shoot. The light will be softened and your photos will be well exposed, without the harsh glare spots.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor design, OK results 5 Mar 2013
By Kevin
Verified Purchase
OK, first off, it works great as a small softbox that fits in the camera bag with ease. Sadly the problem is assembling it. Its gotten to the point where I don't use it as it just takes too long threading the thing together, every time I want to use it. Then reversing the process to put it away. Its just poorly designed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Portable and effective diffuser 11 Nov 2011

May look a bit flimsey but it folds down easily for transport in anything but the smallest camera bag and when attached to the flash it works fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great idea 25 April 2012
Verified Purchase
The mini soft box is a great idea, it's cheap so dont expect it to be top of the range kit, however it is far better than straight flash on you subject. Overall I am very pleased with my flash accessory. Martin McC

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for gigs 10 Feb 2012
This was bought for me as a present and, although initially I couldn't see the point, I've found it very useful when shooting bands in very low-light situations in dimly lit pubs and clubs. It also doesn't disturb the audience or performers as much as a full flash. Used on a Canon 550D with a Nissin flash gun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Put one in your camera bag 30 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase
Folds flat which makes it very easy to slip inside your camera bag and is easily "assembled" and attached to your flashgun.

Diffuses the flash nicely giving (imo) a more pleasing portrait image than without. For the price, totally worth having.

1.0 out of 5 stars total rubbish 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I've bought literally hundreds of items online but I've never felt the need to review an item before - straight out of the packet - started threading the strap and one of the loops tore off - please avoid people

1.0 out of 5 stars Pants product 12 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
Falls to pieces whilst using it... Not made very well and does not really do its job. Stick to the diffuser on your flash or change the power of your flash to compensate for this crappy soft box..

The Opteka Soft Box is to little to diffuse the flash light. With or without the photo is about the same.
