The narrow profile of the Medium Half Dome with White Interior for strobe lights from Photoflex is designed with a white interior for soft diffusion, a removable interior baffle and diffusion face that allow for high-contrast effects if desired. The recessed front face permits optional grids that narrow and direct the output and control spill light. A removable strip mask is included with each HalfDome to narrow it further.

The HalfDome is an ideal choice as a hairlight for group portraits or for elegant, elongated catchlights in product photography. It's also a space saver when shooting in tight spaces and easy to shoot over when used as a foreground light. A speedring for your brand of strobe is available separately.

        This modifier is well built and throws nice light. The two diffusion panels allow you to soften the light as necessary. The quality is very good.

        Now for the bad news... what a bear to set up! I thought I was going to have a stroke during my first attempt. The subsequent attempts when easier but this a modifier you want to set up and be able to sit someplace until you need it again.

        That said it's a nice piece of equipment and I'll probably buy another.

        I have a few different brands of soft boxes. But whenever I can afford a good quality softbox or other light modifier, I select Photoflex. Their prices are not the lowest, neither the highest. But the quality is excellent.

            Well built!

            The stitching and fabric are all top-notch.

            The "medium" is plenty-big for your two-third model shot.

            Comes with a strip mask, as well, which was a pleasant surprise.

                Comments about Photoflex Medium Half Dome with White Interior (15.5 x 55 x 23"):

                I have had one of these for a few years, and I had to get a second one. The long, narrow shape is very useful for full length model shots, because it provides even lighting from top to bottom, but at a narrow angle which reveals more shadow and contour when lighting from the side. With two, I can light this way symmetrically.

                I have been happy with all my Photoflex softboxes, well designed and constructed.

                The storage bag has been updated since I purchased the last one, so it is clearly labeled to indicate which softbox is inside.

                    I like Photoflex products a lot--well built, durable, easy to use, very professional. This strip light is about twice the size of the small one which I use for hairlighting frequently. This larger unit allows for very selective side lighting or as a single light (turned sideways) for head shots.

                    Easy to use, light, flexible. A great addition to whatever lighting modifiers you have. And the pricing is terrific.

                      Out of the packaging the product looks and feels well made.Assembling all the components could be a bit easier but I guess if you need the box to retain its rigid shape the rods would have to be rigid too, so no complaints.The description of the box as being "medium" is deceptive because its actually rather HUGE in my opinion and adequately lights up a short adult or at least a 3/4 of full-sized one :)

                        I've started shooting a lot of full-body images and had been unhappy with the uneven lighting I got from my smaller soft boxes. This allows me to light my subject from head to foot when I need to!

                            easterfilms photography in Reno, Nevada needed a good strip soft box to round out our arsenal of lighting instruments and modifiers.

                            The HalfDome 2 is the best value for the money. Solid construction and quality of light makes it a great value for the money spent.

                            The extra mask included with the HalfDome narrows the light even more so I can "paint" the scene with more effect instead of washing out the shadows.

                            No complaints except that I should have bought one sooner. This box is perfect for architecture and real estate photography. The wide spread of even lighting makes each scene pop.

                            Don't have one? Buy one!
