5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic softbox. Solid and well built, worthy competitor to more expensive ones., 27 Nov 2012

This review is from: 24" 60cm x 60cm EZ-Fold Studio Softbox Kit with 2 x Diffusers and Tilt Bracket for Portable Flash (Electronics)
Given the price I wasn't expecting much from this softbox. Well was I surprised! It's easily a match for the Lastolite version and when I need a second one I'll be going straight for another of these - shame they don't do a bigger version! It comes packed inside a nice little bag with the softbox within its own additional bag to hold it flat and stop it popping up.

The fixings are all metal - I was expecting plastic at the price - and are very solid with a nice big solid ball joint to allow the box to rotate and tilt to pretty much any angle your stand can manage. The flash bracket takes both my smaller speedlight and my larger ones and is nicely adjustable. I have it with a wireless trigger fitted to the hotshoe of the speedlight and can still easily make the speedlight line up.

It isn't overly light, but it could be handheld by an assistant - although it would be better with a little grip handle.

The inner lining of the softbox is silver. It is very easy to put up, although getting the inner diffuser panel attachments could have been made easier, but at least once they are on it stays in place. The outer diffuser is held in place firmly with velcro.

The only downside I can think of is that unlike the Lastolite version, there isn't an optional grid you can buy for it, but I'm betting that the 54/60cm Lastolite version will fit with a bit of sticky velcro as the sides of the softbox overlap the front.
