          Comments about Photogenic 48" Octagonal Softbox with Back Plate and Mounting Ring:

          The zipper helps so much with easy tear down as I was tired of struggling with the other large soft boxes I have. It's a large light source, but doesn't take up as much space. I wish the rods were more securely held in and didn't fall out when folded up, although it works great. Needs a better bag than the one included so rods don't have to be removed every time to fit.

          It's not 48

                Comments about Photogenic 48" Octagonal Softbox with Back Plate and Mounting Ring:

                It is 112 cm and not 120 cm. Due to this problem the front diffuser does not fit properly. I have to attach the diffuser at outer possible edge and there is no room to attach grid any more. The quality of material is good and assembly and disassembly is rather simple.

                    After seeing results from Octagon use I knew to get one of these and so far I've been very happy with it's ease of set up and tear down. For use I set it up pretty much 90 degrees to the model and vary the distance forward / backward to soften or harden the light.

                    Haven't had any problems so far with the item!

                      I shoot portraiture and product photography so I am always looking for a product that will serve multiple purposes. this softbox fits the bill perfectly. Whether I'm going for a soft window light effect, or trying to capture the subtlte differences of the leather on an inline racing boot, the results are just what the clients want!
