This kit is really well designed and thought out!

In a nutshell it's a mini portable strobist's studio kit. A go anywhere solution for smaller shoots.

The only problem that I have noticed is a feint ringlight/cast affect from the Beauty Dish, but this can be sorted by adding a small piece of diffuser paper where it connects to the flexi-mount - so really no big problem here.

Another great feature about this little kit is that if you want to use it with other strobe systems, then you just need to buy a new Flex Mount to suit!

By the way and as I discovered; The Strobies InterFit INSGM400/SGM400 Flex Mount fits the Sony HVLF58AM Flash.

Many of the items in this kit are useful and well-built. Items were more bulky than expected and it would have been nice if some collapsed into smaller more portable forms. The kit doesn't come with the adapter but given the variety of flash units out there maybe this makes sense. The soft box can only be set up on the adapter you buy, but since it's kind of difficult to put together it it almost makes sense to buy a dedicated adapter for this accessory if you plan to use it a lot.

    Comments about Interfit STR100 Strobies Portrait Kit:

    I haven't used the kit yet so can't tell how everything actually performs. I can tell you however that it looks just like advertised and the B&H service is terrific. The reason I haven't used it is because I ordered the wrong size flex mount which is fit to each individual speedlight and holds all the attachments. The SB600 speedlight I ordered it for is not working. I called B&H and for $[$]a second flex mount for my SB910 is in the mail as I write this. I am eagerly looking forward to playing with the complete set.

          Comments about Interfit STR100 Strobies Portrait Kit:

          I was super excited about getting this and made the mistake of not reading the fine print. Duh! You will notice that it doesn't include the flex mount- the connector piece. So not only did I miss that, but come to find out that the flex mount is specific to certain flash brands/models. I still have the kit and will be getting all DIY on it, but I am not really able to give it any stars as to the quality or use... yet.

          I love the wide-angle and snooted honeycombs in this kit. The softbox is a little harder to set up (moreso time consuming) but all the other accessories work a treat!

          Ensure you get your flashes mount (not included).

            Very pleased with the product. Was even more impressed when I took a class at a local college and saw that our instructor, who is also an accomplished pro studio photographer, uses this product. My instructor showed the best way to use the Strobies. Only minor drawback is taking time to set up the flex diffuser. would highly recommend. Very affordable.

              This kit allows me to create better photographs of people with small speedlights. The modifiers are easy to use. The assembly of the softbox requires a little practice but is fairly straightforward after that. The instructions could use a little improvement but I was able to work things out.

                  I haven't had this kit long enough to use everything, but overall it's a reasonable deal. Some of the components are a bit flimsy or cheap, but getting all these things in one kit is a pretty good deal.

                  One thing to consider is that you don't ever want to have to break down and then re-assemble the softbox (it's a huge pain), so you are going to need to get a dedicated flex mount just for that (the flex mount holds it together).

                  The flex mounts aren't the greatest way of attaching components to your flash, but it does work. I ended up getting extra flex mounts so that I could use more than one piece at a time.

                  Comments about Interfit STR100 Strobies Portrait Kit:

                  I am a photography major, as well as a for hire photog. I use this kit in my classes for studio work as well as on location lighting.
                  So far this kit has been of great service and value. It is a low cost entry into creative lighting with a variety of tools, all commonly used in photography lighting. It is lightweight, durable, user friendly, and efficient.

                  This kit is not without its draw backs however. It is primarily made of plastic. Removal of tools from the mount requires some care as it takes a little force, and the mounting clips are plastic.(spare clips are included)I have not broken one yet though. The kit does not come with any type of carrying bag, which would be great( I use A backpack). As stated in other reviews, the soft box can require some finnesse to assemble, and when installed on a flash sometimes pulls the flex mount off the flash when shooting handheld. I have not had a problem when the flash is mounted to a light stand, even with angled lighting.

                  Overall, this kit is a good basic entry into lighting with hot shoe flash. It is not perfect, but the cons are small at worst and easily overcome by even the newest photographer.

                  *** you will need to purchase a flex mount for each flash to use use multiple accessories at one time*****

                  Many of the items in this kit are useful and well-built. Items were more bulky than expected and it would have been nice if some collapsed into smaller more portable forms. The kit doesn't come with the adapter but given the variety of flash units out there maybe this makes sense. The soft box can only be set up on the adapter you buy, but since it's kind of difficult to put together it it almost makes sense to buy a dedicated adapter for this accessory if you plan to use it a lot.

                  I haven't used everything yet, but the softbox, globe diffuser and barn doors were worth the price alone.

                  The only bad thing is the globe is pretty big and somewhat a hassle to haul around.

                  This is such a pain to use! I was excited to use the softbox but gave it up because it wouldn't stay on my flash (SB800) all that well. It kept falling off - quite embarassing when you're doing a shoot. If I was in a studio, this might work but if you're out and about, the softbox mainly was a hassle to use. Plus the instruction sheet that came with it was not all that great. I had to figure out how to put together the softbox and once I did, I never took it apart because it was such a pain. Personally, I wish I gathered more research about this purchase. This was to me, not a good investment. Great to hear others liked it but I didn't.

                  A useful set of tools for a small studio, however I bought this kit for on-site shooting. Bottom line is that the flash Canon 380EX in this case does not stay on the "flex mount". Even after using tie wraps to secure the mount to the flash, the soft box fell off into the sand on a beach shoot.The other attachments may stay on in a controlled environment, but overall, not to happy with this purchase.

                    I just started a new studio and this product has just amazed me with it's design and versatility. I was working on some lighting in my studio and found that most of the attachments will fit on my alien bee light units. So not only are they nice for my on camera flash but also give me added capabilities in the studio either on my flash or my strobes.

                      the only reason this kit got 4 stars and not 5 is because the flex mount adapter is aweful... they need to redesign the flex mount. Otherwise this kit is amazing.... oh and it could use a cary case

                        This is an excellent product which is versatile and easy to use. The adapter for your flash unit (sold separately fits well and holds the "strobies" well.

                          This kit is really well designed and thought out!

                          In a nutshell it's a mini portable strobist's studio kit. A go anywhere solution for smaller shoots.

                          The only problem that I have noticed is a feint ringlight/cast affect from the Beauty Dish, but this can be sorted by adding a small piece of diffuser paper where it connects to the flexi-mount - so really no big problem here.

                          Another great feature about this little kit is that if you want to use it with other strobe systems, then you just need to buy a new Flex Mount to suit!

                          By the way and as I discovered; The Strobies InterFit INSGM400/SGM400 Flex Mount fits the Sony HVLF58AM Flash.
