          Comments about Westcott Round Halo Mono Softbox:

          This is the easiest,most mobile, convenient,and quickest way to use a softbox. It closes like an umbrella, it opens like an umbrella, and it has an umbrella shaft to mount to a mono light. When its folded it takes up very little space. It is great for portraits on location, but the light is not as directional like as a rectangular softbox. The light from it has a wider spread,so it works on groups also. when you pack it put it on top.

                  Comments about Westcott Round Halo Mono Softbox:

                  I bought this as a fast-setup alternative to a softbox when doing location shoots, and was not disappointed. I bought the version intended for use with studio monolights, but it works great with mt speedlights as well. Excellent Westcott build quality, and a great idea to begin with. Donlt forget that you'll need a speedlight mount for a lightstand that has an umbrella mount as well. Photoflex makes one, as do others.

                    Extremely easy to use. Only drawback is lack of carrying bag for it. Was inspired by another brands design allowing part of the transluscent to be covered up in sections. So I bought this one, some black material and velcro. Made my own "fully adjustable" design for about $170 instead of $550 retail!

                        I've been using this for portraits and still lifes. It provides a nice wrap-around light for my subjects and has a great catch-light effect in the eyes. I use it with a Westcott TD5 Spiderlight and it's a great combo.

                        I like this softbox a lot. It softens the light nicely and produces a round catchlight in the eyes. I have a small studio and it is just the right size for me. I highly recommend it.

                          Wescott makes great lighting equipment--I have a bunch of their stuff. The Halo is a big improvement over the use of a bounce back umbrella. The light is softer, and more controlled than a regular umbrella. Easy to install. My only complaint is it doesn't come with a slip cover/case for storage when not in use.
