    I purchased this instead of the much more expensive Chimera softbox by ARRI for my ARRILITE 2000+ lights. It fits perfectly with the 10" speedring I bought for it and haven't had any trouble. Smells slightly when hot, but that's to be expected. It might also smell less as I use it more.

        We use these soft boxes in our video production studio and in the field. We use them on fresnels and the starlight fixtures.

        I'm most impressed with the build quality of these. They are very similar build to Chimeras at a lower prices. Super thick material, great sticking. Basically, they hold up well.

        I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a good quality hot light soft box.

        Works great, but weird typo on warning?

        Comments about Photoflex Medium SilverDome nxt (24.5 x 32 x 17"):

        Well made and easy set-up. HOWEVER, the website says this light is good for lights upto 2000watts, on the side of the soft box is a patch that says maximum light is 200w, I use a 650w arri so I hope this is just some kind of typo, worked fine the first time I used it for an extended period, seems built for 2000w.

          Good quality and build softbox that does the job. Takes a few times to get fast at connecting it to the speedring and can be very difficult. My gf who it's primarily for cannot assemble it which is a bummer. Other than that once it was up it worked great shooting Bride and Groom, adding good directional soft light.

              With it's neat construction and it's quick to set up design, the Photoflex SilverDome NXT medium softbox is a great lighting defuser.
              Made from heat resistant material, I use it with my Lowel Tota lighting system to create great looking pictures everytime.

                For being the cheapest light box solution for a TOTA light (although I could wish for cheaper), this lightbox ain't so bad!

                I use it as a cheaper alternative to a Kino light for interviews and it works well. Yes, hot. Yes, not a seamless setup. But it works well.

                You hear a lot about how hard this is to setup. I actually find it painfully easy. Unfortunately, I think arm strength is fairly key in doing it quickly but it doesn't take brute strength.

                All in all, easy peesy.

                This product needed to be assembled which at first is one of the "oh know" I wish I hadn't ordered this feeling..but honestly it was very simple to do and the instructions were logical.I also ordered the light adapter for it so it too was easy to put together and the light is beautiful.Hot from the Starlite but those flaps are lovely.Nice touch. Love it.

                    I use this for lighting interviews and short films. I've set it up several times now but, the more I do it, the quicker I get. Read the directions to find the most efficient way to set it up.

                    I wouldn't recommend running a high watt bulb in it too long. I use a Lowel Tota with a 750W lamp and it started to smoke after 10 minutes. Luckily I found I only needed to run a 500W lamp so I think that'll help later on.

                    It does what it is supposed to and seems super durable!

                    We use these softboxes on 800W Redhead open face lights. They have been generally good but after 4 years of regular use and abuse by students the foil started to flake away on the parts closest to the lamp head. We have since replaced all our softboxes with new ones and have noticed this part of the softbox has a different design now and seems to be more reinforced.

                    Factoring in their constant use on a very hot open face light, and replacement price it is reasonable to expect them to wear out. Hopefully the newer design lasts longer.

                    They are tricky to attach to the speed ring when new but once the spars bend a little they are easy to set up and pack down.

                          Price to performance Photoflex does it again.

                          If you're used to the softboxes for flash only, expect a MUCH heavier unit. Thicker fabric and vents (open/close-able via velcro). AND the fact that the end of each stay (rod) velcros open for easier assembly and take down.

                          I have yet to use it very much, so no reliable wear rating at this point. BTW, this fits just fine into the ARRI 750 open face with the speed ring that comes with it (which is made to fit Chimera).

                            I use this softbox for interviews and it provides great diffuse lighting. It's a little on the heavy side though.

                              Easy to set up, comes in practical bag for safe transport. Don't forget to buy speedring separately!

                                  Great buy when compared to the typical soft box we all use. Bought two of these and we're VERY pleased. Will buy two more soon.

                                    I ordered this thing to use with my lowell omni. Makes it a much more usable bit of gear.

                                        This is a well built soft box.

                                              I ended up returning this and decided to buy a Rifa light instead because I wanted to use daylight, for a few hundred more than the silver dome + speed ring + halfblue gel. But it is a good softbox.
