Product Highlights
  • For Shoe-mount Flash
  • Quick Setup
  • Folds Flat, Compact
  • Accepts Fabric Grids

The Impact Quikbox (24 x 24") is a great way to expand the capabilities of your on-camera, shoe-mount flash. The Quikbox lives up to its name by popping open and assembling in a couple of minutes. Just pop open the softbox, add the diffusers and included adapter ring and shoe adapter, mount on a lightstand and you're ready to shoot.

Using a softbox with your shoe-mounted flash will help to diffuse and to evenly distribute the light output of the flash. This will help to reduce those harsh shadows which are often the result of flash photography. Also included is an internal diffuser, to minimize the possibility of hotspots. In addition, the recessed front face helps to control light spill.

The included flash bracket is adjustable vertically, and features a universal shoe which is adjustable horizontally. These adjustments make this unit compatible with virtually all standard flash units (incl. Nikon SB-900 & SB-910), as well as radio receivers. In addition, for those receivers that do not feature a bottom shoe connector, the bracket shoe is removable to expose a male 1/4"-20 screw. There are also three plastic washers included in the shoe assembly, to accommodate receivers of various sizes.

    I primarily bought this softbox for my speedlite because I wanted to control where my light went, I wanted nice soft lighting for portraits and I wanted something portable. I first started shooting off-camera flash with a shoot-through umbrella. I love shooting with an umbrella because it's easy. But I soon found that when I wanted to control where my light was going, I was going to need another modifier, a softbox.
    What I like about this softbox is that it seems very durable. Popped open, this thing is solid and rigid. I was afraid at first to fold it flat because some of the rods inside didn't feel like they folded correctly to me, but once I figured out what corners to fold it was much easier.
    Another thing I like is the silver lining in the inside, it sorta gives my flash an extra boost, like it's a tad more powerful than it really is.
    The bracket that it comes with is very light and made out of durable plastic. One thing to note is that you cannot angle the softbox because the bracket is in a fixed position. That isn't an issue for me because I mount it on a pin at the end of a boom arm which I can point anywhere.
    I also love that it is meant to be taken places easily. Getting it set up is painless and when it's windy outdoors, this handles it much better than an umbrella.
    Again, if you own a speedlite, this is a great softbox for it. It provides great soft lighting for portraits. The last shoot I did with this was of two people, 2/3 of the body and this softbox provided more than enough light. Not sure how it would do with lighting full body shots of say 3 or 4 people, but for what I've done so far it is great.

    What I like:

    • Decent quality light if you can get the outer diffuser to fit properly.

    • Bracket is just large enough to use a Pocket Wizards Flex TT5 with a full size Speedlite mounted on top like the Canon 580 EX II. (see photo)

    • Quality carrying case, in fact the case feels like it's better quality than the soft box itself.

    What I don't like:

    • The inner diffusion screen has a terrible hook system that can take a bit to attach.

    • The outer diffusion screen doesn't completely fit leading to light leak from the corners or wherever you can't get complete coverage from it. I basically had to stretch mine to get it to almost fit, luckily I didn't rip it. (see photo)

    • The box itself fits quite loosely on the mounting bracket, won't take much at all to knock it off. Still solid enough for outdoor use with minimal wind though.

    • The mounting bracket does not tilt so if you need to angle the box at all you'll need another bracket.

    Summary:

    Overall it's not a bad purchase for the money but they need to pay more attention to the little details of this product. It's definitely a smarter buy than the Lastolite equivalent as I can't find hardly any difference between the two. A better outer diffuser and the inclusion of a tilting bracket and this would have been a four star product.

        I am not a pro so I can't give any kind of comparative analysis, but I can say that as a serious amateur working from home this works very nicely. It is a good size when open and folds up very flat when not using. Setup is EZ and intuitive. Works fine with the stands I bought. Worth the money from my perspective.

            Bought the Impact Quikbox Softbox (24 x 24")as a kit, together with the Air-cushioned Light Stand (Black, 8')and umbrella bracket. or what I paid, I can't really complaint at all ...The quickbox was easy to assemble (just required a little patience) and its light (from a EX580 II) is very very good for 1-2 person headshots.I think the weak link is the flash holder; it is all plastic and not terribly sturdy. It has been fine, it just feels a little flimsy.

            Everything looks good and assembled well. The little inner clips are a bit strong for their purpose and hard to manipulate. The velcro on the outer diffuser was a bit loose in the corners, so I added a stitch there. The bracket that holds the Quikbox is made of hard plastic and I wonder if it will fatigue and break over time or in the wind.

            Produces nice soft light, seems sturdy enough to last forever if you don't drag if on the ground or trash it on purpose.

              This was the first time I've purhased or used a softbox. I found this one easy to assemble and was happy to see that it allows for adjustments to flash size/placement/height.

                Use this for portrait shots and product shots. Diffusers a little tough to get correctly placed with the velcro. Overall great deal.

                    Using for outdoor photo shoots with remote qflash and have had good luck with it so far. Attached to a monopod and have assistant rest the monopod on the ground with the softbox pointed at the subject. Sets up fast and packs back in its bag much faster than soft box that use rods. The flash mount is molded but seems to work okay. I still need to work on the attachment to the monopod, but that is not the fault of this softbox. Used on a light stand with sand bags as well but it takes longer to setup each location using the fixed light stand.

                      Well made, folds down to a managble size. Setup is easy. The connection from the softbox to the speedring seems solid but I could see it getting loose over time with heavy use.

                      I use this product in most of my studio work: portraits, food photography, steel, tiles, and as it´s name says it is really easy to carry with me. the thing that I like the most is the comfortable way to travel all along with it.
                      so far it has been working really good syncronizing with two others speed lights.
                      I definetly recomend the quikbox softbox!

                        I bought this softbox because Scott Kelby recommended it in his latest book. I've since used it for on location shoots with a single off camera flash. The results are great and it is very easy to setup and carry.

                            This softbox is great. well build and easy to set up even right out of the box. I used mine days after recieving it on location in the desert doing a families portrait and it work perfect. Yes the stand is very light and would feel much safer with sand bags on it but thats what assistance are for right. Looking forward to using it more.

                                  Seems to be a sturdy softbox for use with portrait photography. I had one by another company, and it had sticky Velcro around the edges. It kept coming off the flash bracket, and when I put it back on, I got sticky on my fingers -- not good on a photo shoot. This Quikbox has strong elastic and fits nicely on the flash bracket. I have not used it on a shoot yet, but on my test shots of my husband, it worked great.
