      Comments about Hensel Ultra III Softbox, 18 x 26" (45 x 65cm):

      The materials used are strong and durable. The size is great for portraiture. It comes with a smaller diffused material with velcro attached to elastic bands to minimize any hot spots but after 2 uses one of the elastics came off where it was sewn to the material and I lost it. Boooo.

        Comments about Hensel Ultra III Softbox, 18 x 26" (45 x 65cm):

        I use this free together with a hensel strobe kit. I was able to put this together in about 2 minutes. It travels well (flat) when taken apart. Seems to distribute the light well. I hope to retrofit it to work with a Nikon SB-800 as the hensel light is pretty bright otherwise for portrait work in a small studio. Anyway, a nice softbox which works well for the money. No complaints at this point.

        Comments about Hensel Ultra III Softbox, 18 x 26" (45 x 65cm):

        I can't say that I am any kind of expert with softboxes, this is the only one I own by virtue of the fact that it came included with my Hensel light kit. It seems to me to be good for headshots, I have done some headshots since getting it and have been pleased with the results. I do want to add a larger one to my collection though as I can't see this working for a full length studio shot or group portrait. The instructions that came packaged with it looked like a copy of a copy of a copy etc, the pictures were unrecognizable and i had to go off the working and what looked right.

          Easy to set up, well made...really nice soft light...a perfect size for full length. I am concerned about how long the velcro will last but it seems pretty sturdy other than that.

            Every time I need a good reflector, just to shoot portraits, still life or create a diferent light I often use this reflector into my lighting setup.

            Easy to assemble, need some pratice, very durable, I have 3, my first one has more than 3 or 4 years and are like new!!

            My assistants sometimes take some time to understand how to disassemble, but as soon they get use to it, it's just fun...

            As I like to have only good equipos, so Hensel it's my choice!

              Comments about Hensel Ultra III Softbox, 18 x 26" (45 x 65cm):

              I received this product as part of the two light Hensel Integra Pro kit. I was surprised by the high level of fit and finish of this product, as was my friend who works with studio equipment regularly. This softbox does a superb job at creating wonderfully soft light. My only complaint is that it is fairly small, and best used for headshots. I will be buying the Hensel large softbox or octabox for my studio work, but these items are expensive compared to budget brands. However, their quality should make the light modifiers worth the while. All in all, I am very happy that I bought into the Hensel system.
