    I have been using it everyday since I purchased it 4 weeks ago and really like the nice soft even light that it produces. Have shot some comparison shots against a regular shoot through and can tell the difference with the amount of wrap you get with this as opposed to a regular shoot through, also there is not as much spill.

    I ordered two of these and one of them came with a couple pieces that came undone. It was an easy enough fix with a needle and thread, but still a pain to have to deal with on a brand new piece of gear. Overall, I think these will be very useful, though. This particular type of umbrella was kind of hard for me to find, and I was glad to find them on the B&H website.

    Comments about Interfit Umbrella Box with 8mm Shaft (40"):

    I used it with 1 or 2 speedlights for location portraits. I really liked the ease of use, and the look of the light it provides. The ribs bend very easily. Mine is already trashed.

            So far, I am happy with this Umbrella Box.I bought it to use outside with my Canon flash.
            Two things to consider:
            1. Bad: The light doesn't spread out as evenly or as softly as when I bounce my flash off my black and silver umbrella.
            2. Good: It doesn't blow over as easily as a regular bounce or shoot-through unbrella.
            Conclusion:
            Use my silver sided umbrella and bounce my flash when inside. Use the shoot through Umbrella Box when outside

            Comments about Interfit Umbrella Box with 8mm Shaft (40"):

            This umbrella soft box is easy to set up and use, requires no mounting adapters. It is more light efficient than an umbrella but could be a little deeper for better light spread. I like using a 42in umbrella better as light is softer and wider spread.

                    I really like the outcome of the pictures taken with this umbrella attached to my strobes. Gives a beautiful and soft turn to my flash. Perfect for home studios etc. Easy to use and very affordable.
