Product Highlights
  • Front Accepts Softgrid Light Modifier

The softbox is one of the basic tools of lighting--softening, diffusing and directing the light in a controlled way. The Creative Light 3x4' Recessed Front Softbox is 3x4' (90x120 cm) This softbox has an external and an internal diffuser, both attached with touch fasteners. An optional soft grid can be attached to the front, reducing the angle of light to 50°. The size and shape of the subject dictates the size and shape of the softbox you use for a main light--smaller softboxes for smaller subjects, larger ones for larger subjects. The softbox can also be used as a fill light or an accent light. All-steel support rods are included. Dedicated speedrings for most popular brands of flash head are available separately.

        Amazing light quality. This provides a lot of light, but does require a fair bit of space.

          Comments about Creative Light 3x4' Recessed Front Softbox:

          Got one of the older inventory models; the rod cup was definitely not good. They ALL punched through. I quickly wrote them an email stating my concerns and that I bought this against my original Wescott history. Their product seemed so much more durable and like it could really stand well over time. To my surprise I got an immediate response stating how sorry they were that my first experience with them went sour. They asked for my name and address and promised to remedy the situation quickly. Well that they did! Inside of a week I had a new replacement and obviously a newer version! They had fixed the problem with the rod pockets and I must say this product performs great! And huge kudo's to their customer support team! THEY ACTUALLY LISTENED AND FOLLOWED THROUGH!!!
          I'm getting another one!!!

            I have both 2x3 and 3x4 softboxes by Creative Light. The build quality is good - solid poles, durable exterior. We'll see how the silver lining lasts over time. Nice light quality, typical softbox setup. I use them with my Alien Bees.

            I have not witnessed the pole difficulties as mentioned prior. Either they fixed the problem, or there was user error. My 2x3 is older than the 3x4 and I could see how someone could get confused setting it up. Not with the newer 3x4, however.

            Speedrings are good, but heavy.

                  Comments about Creative Light 3x4' Recessed Front Softbox:

                  I am a semi-pro photographer and this is the perfect size for all around use. I would use this softbox in studio and on location for portraits. First the pluses for this box. The price is nice since you can get this box and a fabric grid for less then the price of just the box of a competing brand. The shell construction material seems tough enough and has a nice texture to the silver lining rendering a nice light dispersion. Overall would be a great box except. When I attempted to set this box up for only the second time one of the rods pushed right through what appeared to be just a stitched seem. This is unacceptable for a tool I will rely upon heavily. For CL to night just add a small amount of reinforcing to the pocket where the rods apply tension baffles my mind. I have several CL boxes and this one is the only one that appears to have this poor construction practice applied. I have had no problems with my strip banks or octa. I would avoid this box until CL address this issue. Mine will be going back as it can not be trusted to not fail again.

                  Good Price, Poor Construction

                    I bought this and two CL 1x3 strip boxes. The strip boxes have reinforced pockets to retain the end of the flexible rods, especially with the tension. However, for some reason, the 3x4 softbox does not. Within two months of purchase, one of the rods pushed through the pocket rendering the box useless without breaking out the sewing kit. I also have Elinchrom and Photoflex softboxes in various sizes/shapes and would recommend the Photoflex over the CL boxes for quality and price. Although I do not have the Photoflex in this size, I am thinking about ordering it to replace this one and just trashing it despite the newness.

                      I own Photoflex, Westcott, Elinchrom, and three Creative Light soft boxes. This one is the weakest constructed box of them all. The holder for the flexible rod isn't reinforced like the smaller CL boxes and the other brands mentioned above. Thus, there is a high risk of the rod pushing through rendering the box useless. Mine lasted two months before giving in. Of course with the investment in this box plus a grid, I sewed on a custom reinforcement.
