Product Highlights

The Extra Small LiteDome from Photoflex gives you big results in a very small package. Although the size of the face is only 12 x 16", its surface is 32 times greater than the face of a typical shoe mount flash, and that results in a dramatic improvement in skin texture softening. The Extra Small LiteDome is lightweight and portable, giving you studio-quality lighting wherever you need it. it comes with a basic connector that is ready to accept optional accessories to support a speedlight, however studio strobes require separate purchase of a speedring for use.

  • Lightweight, versatile and portable
  • Creates soft, diffused light on your subject
  • Mounts to camera bracket or light stand. Comes with a basic connector
  • Carry Bag included for easy storage and transport
  • Size 12 x 16 x 9.0" (30 x 41 x 23 cm)
    Shape Rectangle
    Compatibility Studio strobe or flash
    Removable Front Face No
    Removable Interior Baffle No
    Accepts Grids No

    Used for "double lighting" at receptions and events, and small product photography. Works very well; it's a good product.

    The only drawrbacks are the rod-and-ring system is slower to setup than "umbrella" or pop-up types, and there is no lip around the face for controlling spill or attaching accessories like a small grid. With faster setup and a lip, I would give it 5 stars, Photoflex customer service was also excellent in respnoding to a minor missing part issue.

    I bought this in-store as an impulse buy and should have done a little more research. The product itself looks and works well however it does not come with the bracket to hold the flash and softbox together. I went to use the softbox later that day and assumed the manufacturer had forgotten to include the bracket and was going to return it, but then doing a little online reading found out what my mistake was.

    I ordered the Photoflex adjustable shoe mount bracket (B&H# PHCASMXSLD)online and will add a complete review once that arrives.

        Great small softbox, I mean small. But is very portable for on the road. Also, doesn't take much to put together, I love the speed ring, could use it with any other soft box. I gave it 4 stars due to still having to purchase the shoe mount to the stand and you can to tighten the softboxx down or it will become loose. Also, the light source is small considering it's an extra small, but great for fill light or rim light. Overall great product would recommend to have in the trunk of your car.

            I bought this when I needed a tiny softbox to use with an Einstein E640 light because I was working in a tight space. It's great! It secured on with a spare reflector that I mounted on the light.
            The quality of light isn't the best, but there's no room for a baffle in there. If you need small and have space so that you can set up, then you should have no trouble avoiding shadows.

                        It assembles so perfectly, that the front difussion material is tense, and it doesn't feel too heavy, nor it causes too much pressure on the flash's front end, because it supports itself from the strongest part of the flash unit (the rear)
                        The light is soft and even, but you loose 2 stops and from 6 ft, you light your subject from the knees up.

                            I use this as a kicker light for wedding receptions. We use an on camera flash, and trigger this remotely for a bit of side lighting. It works great for this purpose, and it's so small that we rarely even bother breaking it down, we just throw it in the car. In a pinch, it's also usable for tight portrait shots, and it's super easy to carry around with you. The size is perfect for our usage, as it's not too big that it interferes with the DJ's rig.

                            Naturally this would not be the first choice for portrait lighting, but if you have a specific purpose in mind for it, it does it's job well. We have brought it to dozens of weddings and our gear takes a beating, but it's held up perfectly.

                            Obviously as it's made for small flashes, and not strobes, it's a lightweight unit, so if you are using it outside in wind, you'll need sandbags, or better yet, a person to hold it steady. This thing is fantastic indoors though, and it's small size is a bonus if you are working without an assistant.

                            I like the small soft box. It works great with my off camera flash. Not so sure about the hardware to attach it to the stand. I am still working it out. As of now it seems kind of wobbly but I'll watch the video again and double check.

                                  I think it works ok, and it is helpful if you are always on the way. I rated it with 3 stars because you need a photoflex shoe mount (sku phcasmxsld) in order to make it work with your flash and I did not find that info before buying it. I also think you need to buy a few extra strips, because they don't look durable, i mean i think they do the job for a few months. (i have one month with in and ok so far)

                                    I have yet to really put it through the paces but a few test shots show that is working well to soften the shadows on the subject. Small enough to carry along almost anywhere and I use it with my 430 EX II.

                                      It's quite small but works fine just for face portraits. Due to its very light weight, it's great to take it with you for outdoors portraits. The size is also an inconvenient if you want to use it for a full portrait because it produces a harder light than a bigger softbox

                                        Just getting into off camera lighting and this is my first softbox. Produces soft light for portraits and I'm able to break it down and fit it in my camera bag.

                                        Albeit I noticed the dimensions upon placing the order, be aware that this LiteDome Softbox is in fact pretty small. While I did use it in tandem with my 580EX II Speedlight to photograph some portraits of my younger brother both indoors and outdoors, it did a fine job.

                                        Although, had I been aware of the Lastolite EZYBOX at the time of placing this order, I may have considered my options at further length. Considerably cheaper, this product does a fine job at diffusing the light - my only criticism is it's small size. In my opinion, it is suitable for individual portraits and work in close proximity, and not much else.

                                        Set up time is relatively fast and can typically be accomplished in under a minute. Parts seem well manufactured and reliable and results remain consistent.

                                        Additionally I was happy to see an included bag used for carrying the softbox and its components around it, which I store safely in my Pelican 1650 case.

                                        4 out of 5 stars for its small size, but that's my fault.
                                        5 out of 5 stars for cost, durability and portability.
