        Comments about SP Studio Systems Collapsible EZ Softbox Octagonal 37":

        Like so many others who have dealt with speedrings and rods, I was extremely pleased to use this octa box. It opens like an umbrella and mounts in seconds (with the appropriate speedring). It has an internal baffle and a diffuser and produces soft light even light exactly where you want it.

                  I use this primarily for head and shoulders portraits. It is very easy to set up and produces nice soft light and an even catch light. Quality of light is as good or better than those costing 5 times the price. I use these on Alien Bees and have no problems with mounting - be sure to get the appropriate speed ring for your monolights.

                    Comments about SP Studio Systems Collapsible EZ Softbox Octagonal 37":

                    I cannot say enough good things about this softbox! It is large, durable and an absolute pleasure to "assemble". For anyone who has ever placed rods into a softbox and pressed and bent them in order to shape and lock the frame into place, you are in for a treat. This softbox is built so that all you have to do is pull the frame (1 piece) out of its bag and then slide the central spokes onto a central column and assembly is complete. All you have to do is velco in the baffles.

                    Asides from the easy assembly, this also diffuses light beautifully and evenly. It's a great softbox for portraits.

                    Comments about SP Studio Systems Collapsible EZ Softbox Octagonal 37":

                    I have two other SP Studio Systems soft boxes, the 24" square EZ and the not so EZ 36" square. I love the 24" use it all the time. The 36" puts out a very nice quality light but putting it together is time consuming. I purchased the 37" EZ Octagonal to get away from the assembly associated with the 36". So far, I find the light quality of the 37" is comparable to the 36". It sets up as advertised, easy. My two less then positive comments are: 1. The product photo make this unit appear to be shallow in depth, it is not. It measures 26" deep. It looks like a kettle drum hanging off of the strobe. 2. The depth and weight of the box have me concerned for the plastic strobe mount. It also tends to tip if you are not careful how you position it.
