      Great softbox at a very reasonable price

      I use this softbox along with the larger 36x48 for my studio portrait work. I put them on Speedotron flashes and have more than enough light for full body portraits.

      I use this softbox along with the larger 36x48 for my studio portrait work. I put them on Speedotron flashes and have more than enough light for full body portraits.

      One word of caution... if you are having difficulty attaching this onto a third party speedring, you may want to consider modifying the rod receiver holes on the speedring to make it easier to assemble. The rods on this speedbox are very strong/stiff and I wound up ripping the fabric as I attempted to attach to a larger diameter speedring. No fault of Westcott here - I just was a bit too forceful.

      To summarize, I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a rugged yet reasonably priced softbox.

      I ordered two of these soft boxes and the first thing I noticed was how hard they were to fit on my speed rings. after fitting them to the speed ring the flaps on the back do not really close all the way. also, the rods easily fall out and are a pain to always put back in. trying to disassemble these are even worse. the fit is so tight that I have bruises from the rods snapping back on to my hands. but thats' not the biggest problem.
      the inner and outer baffles have a blue tint. I tried to mix these with my other soft boxes and my colors were awful. I removed the baffles one by one, took test shots and found them to be the problem. I called Wescott and was informed that you have to get their better soft boxes to get baffles that are color neutral. The blue tint seems to be on purpose. they sent me replacement baffles and after spending time modifying them to fit I am still having issues.
      I have 6 other soft boxes and have never had this issue.
      its past the return date and I would would feel bad to sell these to someone. so they are going in the garbage

        As the name says, it is a Basic Softbox. A little harder to setup then some, but works as advertised. Good value.

          Wasn't ridiculously hard to put together, all the pieces seem quality, shipped fast and was cheaper than any other softbox I could find.

                  This softbox ripped a seam the first time I used it. After approximately 6-7 set-ups the rod pocket ripped open rendering it useless. I was able to use some gaff tape to get me through the shoot, but how embarrassing is that in front of a client?

                  If you plan to set this box up once and leave it up then it may be worth the risk. Otherwise, spend a little more money and get a softbox that will last.

                  Only giving it 3 stars as when I bought it, it wasnt made clear I needed multiple other fittings to use this softbox. Speedring and other fittings DONT come with this.
                  If this is your first softbox - buy one of the KIT ones instead.

                            I use this softbox along with the larger 36x48 for my studio portrait work. I put them on Speedotron flashes and have more than enough light for full body portraits.

                            One word of caution... if you are having difficulty attaching this onto a third party speedring, you may want to consider modifying the rod receiver holes on the speedring to make it easier to assemble.

                              Comments about Westcott Photo Basics Softbox - 24x32" (61x81cm):

                              I purchased this softbox to use with an old Novatron location kit mounted a Wescott speedring. So far so good. Fits well and was very easy to set up. Comes with a carrying case also.

                                I've wanted a soft box for a while, working so far with only umbrellas - and this one is fantastic. Light is exceptionally manageable and delicate!
