The Westcott Mini Apollo softbox is designed for small flash units that can accept an umbrella shaft. It mounts just like a standard umbrella. The Mini Apollo eliminates red-eye, brightens colors and softens harsh light from flash. Its small size and slim profile is ideal for a hair light or accent light.

An "L" bracket is required for use with your shoe-mount flash. There is also an additional bracket available for use with a handle mount flash.

Instructions

Unfasten the hook-and-loop tape from the three sides of the front diffuser panel and allow it to hang freely.
Stand the Apollo with the umbrella tip on a hard surface. Place one hand on the shaft of the umbrella and gently slide your hand down the shaft while pushing the ribs down toward the tip of the umbrella, until it locks in place.
Fasten the three sides of the diffuser panel back onto the softbox, and you are ready to mount the Apollo onto your light.

        Comments about Westcott Mini Apollo Softbox for Flash Only - 16x16" (40x40cm):

        This a great, small and lightweight softbox. I needed something I could take on any trip, that wouldn't take much room or weigh much. This is perfect. Because of the size, it's limited to a one-person shot, maybe two people. But the design bouncing the light into the back gives it a softer look than would be expected of a small box. After receiving the first, I immediately ordered a second. Only downside to it is because of the design, you need a small or mid-sized flash to use in it. My Nikon SB-910 is a bit big, though would work if it had to.

          I use this for small assignment. Like 1 of 2 softboxes for clamshell lighting or use for fill light. Its pretty small so not as versatile as the 23" x 24" which I own as well.

            The lock screw takes a little effort to tighten down to lock soft box in place but the light coming out of this little box is quite nice. Your speedlite shoots to the rear of box before the light come out the front this takes out the hot spot that most speedlite boxes have. Good construction and easy to open. Good value.

            Perfect for speedlites on location. Set up very easily and is small enough to fit into a backpack. Great product!

            I bought this as part of a "kit" of several different sizes. It did not come with the adapter bracket and can't be used unless you buy the adapter bracket. It shouldn't be sold without it and I really don't understand why it's done that way. Otherwise it seems to be a great product. My advise is to skip this and buy the 28" one instead.

              Used for a portable light stand with 580EX II...need to buy the L bracket otherwise the flash is off center...basically it doesn't work without the L bracket. BHPhoto has the kit which is what I should have purchased..comes with l bracket and the stand adapter. Light weight enough for some on location soft light..senior portraits etc.
