First impressions suggest they are 5 star products. From the off they were easy to set up and easy to fold and return to their cases. The quality appears to be first class and they attach quickly and firmly to the “Hotshoe” system brackets. Excellent.
So why have I given them only three stars?
Firstly, I thought the Ezybox system was one comprehensive system but it isn’t. Within Ezybox there is a “Hotshoe” system, Speedlight system and Pro system to name but three. Unsurprisingly, I initially ordered the wrong softboxes for my “Hotshoe” system, which had to be returned - at my expense.
Secondly, I already had two hotshoe brackets but had to order softboxes with two more brackets. I asked three different Lastolite representatives from three different departments if this was necessary and, if not, how could it be avoided? Two didn’t know and the third didn’t reply to my email. I now have two brackets I don’t really need which retail at between £30-£40 each.
Finally, tiltheads are not provided. These are essential and I had to buy two at a further cost of around £40.
Providing a good product isn’t enough. I have wasted a lot of time and money, which could have been avoided if there had been clear system and product descriptions backed by an efficient customer service. Poor show Lastolite.
For some time I've wanted to use a softbox with my Nikon flash guns instead of running them into umbrellas to obtain the softer light and these provide it in spades.
However, there are a couple of caveats to take notice of...first is putting them away. Folding them to get them back in their blue circular case can be difficult. The instructions from Lastolite are at best poor and so I suggest you check out YouTube for a couple of examples of how to fold them away.
and secondly - loss of flash power. With two diffusion sheets to make the output that much more soft, the trade-off is flash power. You'll need to increase your flash power significantly to make up for this and a further trade of is - buy more batteries. Adding more power to the flash will eat into your battery life.
Of note, when the kits arrived I had to call Lastolite to send two new cold shoes. The ones that came with this kit were too large for my Nikon SB800 flash guns and wouldn't stay in place. The cold shoes that came as standard are for the larger foot of the Nikon SB900 flash gun. lastolite were excellent. The new shoes appeared two days later.
If you're serious about your photography and want to shape your light or soften your light consider buying at least one Ezybox hotshoe. Yes they're expensive but you get what you pay for - in this case an excellent product.
Another thing worth noting about the new pouches is that you can squeeze in 2 soft boxes into the one pouch saving excess baggage and things to carry.
Note though that Lastolite have re-sized these so the 60cm x 60cm you see here is actually now a 54cm x 54cm box and is labelled so when you receive it. The lastolite website explains why.
It also comes with quite a large triangular bag now instead of the original smaller bag which was circular. This is due to the difficulties people were having at collapsing it.
Second - flash holder not secure. Easy to drop or loose your flash. No lock. I Use sticky tape every time. That makes me to spend much more time on setup, every time.
Perhaps a piece of plastic or something to keep the shape rigid would prevent the crease.
