    Comments about Lowel 40 Degree Egg Crate for Rifa eX 55:

    I really like the ex 55, but is does throw light all over the place. This egg crate seems well constructed so far, and does what it's supposed to.

    Nice quality of soft light, with a nice falloff around the edges.

    It's a little finicky to get on, but still nicer than setting up most other soft boxes I've used.

        Lowel makes great, durable products. This one is no exception.

        Happy to have it as part of my lighting kit. Easy to install and use. Super easy to store in the extra space in my Lowel rolling case.

          Comments about Lowel 40 Degree Egg Crate for Rifa eX 55:

          If you love your Rifa Lites, you will love this Egg Crate. Sometmes the soft boxs spread a bit too much light in the foreground and need control. The egg Crate fits on quickly and allows you to taper and throw the light further out into the scene. I recently shot a downstairs bar at the new Fillmore in Maryland. I used the Egg Crate to send the light out to the middle of the scene creating added depth and removing the heavy front lighting that is common when the softbox is not used correctly or needs added diffusion. It is also nicely made of the same tuff material used on the softbox itself. I took it on the road without the supplied case and just used the velcro strap that also came with it which made it lighter and less bulky. It folds down small for travel.

              If you use Rifa lite soft boxes, you must have the egg crates to go with them. They make all the difference in the world when shooting.

                This product is a wonderful addition to my light package.

                It allows me to direct the light from my Rifa and keep it from spilling into places where I don't want it. This is great for interview shots.

                  Granted while I think this item is overpriced by Lowel and B&H. Without it all you have is a soft flood light with the Rifa 55. It's made to take on a daily grind while focusing more soft light towards the subject. I must have if your using the Rifa 55 as a key light.
