The Airbox Model 1X1 Softbox Kit with Eggcrate Louver is an inflatable softbox that is designed for use with standard-sized LED fixtures measuring 1 x 1'. Quickly attaching to lights with hook-and-loop fasteners and cinch straps, this softbox helps to diffuse and soften the light quality from an LED, turning it into a single broad light source. Additionally, an integrated front pocket permits the use of additional diffusion or colored gels to further modify the quality of light.

Included with the softbox is a two-part eggcrate louver, which helps to narrow the beam angle of the light to produce a harder, more controllable light quality. This grid separates into two parts to maintain overall portability and attaches to the softbox using hook-and-loop fasteners.

Inflatable design maintains a compact and portable profile, and can quickly be inflated by mouth or optional air pump.
Designed for use with most 1000-LED fixtures measuring approximately 1 x 1'.
Quick and stable attachment to light using hook-and-loop fasteners and cinch straps.
Front pocket enables the use of additional diffusion or colored gels.

            I had high hopes for this product, but it doesn't make the light very soft on its own. I added some diffusion to it (there's a pocket in which you can add gels) -- and that helped -- but it was still not nearly as soft as hanging full-grid a foot or two from the source. There are cheaper and better ways of softening your LED panels.

            Doesn't make the light any softer

                  Comments about Airbox Model 1X1 Softbox Kit with Eggcrate Louver:

                  It sounds like a great idea until you try it. The fundamental problem is that LEDs (even "flood" LEDs) are directional, not point sources. Since the surface of the Airbox is only about 2.5 inches away from the LEDs, the beam of light only gets about 5% wider in that distance. You'll get almost exactly the same effect by just taping a piece of diffusion paper over the front of the LED. The point of a softbox is to give you a larger (i.e. softer) source that your original light, but this softbox does not do that.I really wanted this to work, but it just doesn't. When I put this on my Litepanels 1x1 flood, the light isn't noticably softer than plain diffusion.I've attached an image to show how only the LEDs only shine on the center square of the airbox, not the entire surface.

                    Comments about Airbox Model 1X1 Softbox Kit with Eggcrate Louver:

                    The softening it produces is really nice, I was pretty surprised by the results.
                    The only downside is the eggcrate that comes in two parts. It's sometines a pain to install and it's a bit bulky.
                    Other than that pretty clever product.
