        Comments about Westcott Shallow Softbox 54 x 72" (137 x 182.2 cm):

        I've wanted this size soft box for quite a while, but have a home studio, so I was concerned about the size. A) The "shallow" aspect makes it fit beautiful, and B) the size of the soft box is just amazing! The quality is top notch too.

          Comments about Westcott Shallow Softbox 54 x 72" (137 x 182.2 cm):

          This thing is perfect for location video shooting: like all of Westcott's stuff, it's really well made. And the depth lets me use it in locations where a regular softbox just won't fit. So happy with it, I bought three (!): two of the 54x72s and one of the 36x48. I can light whole rooms with a beautiful, directional, wrapping "window" light. Also, I found a cost-effective soft grid that works great. In my opinion, just about the perfect soft source.

            Comments about Westcott Shallow Softbox 54 x 72" (137 x 182.2 cm):

            Needed some more room and had another large softbox that took up way too much room. Bought this - from the first photo I took I knew this was a keeper. Light weight, good light, decent price.

            Would have like to have the fabric set back a little from the opening to control light to the sides, but oveall a great deal.

            I use this softbox with my Spiderlite TD6 and it definitely allows me the flexibility to shoot in spaces previously not considered with a softbox of this size. Front diffusion fabric is also thinner, allowing for more light to the subject.

            I'm very happy with the softbox!
