      SInce they are sooo huge, I think that they should make a set of block-out panels to turn this 30x30 into a 12 x 30 strip bank if needed.

      This thing is huge. Yep, I saw the dimensions, but didn't really pay attention. I mean my 32" umbrella seems small, so i thought this would run the same....Read complete review

      This thing is huge. Yep, I saw the dimensions, but didn't really pay attention. I mean my 32" umbrella seems small, so i thought this would run the same. Um. No.

      The setup is great. Quality solid. Just huge for my light assistant to hold in tiny spaces or outside in windy conditions

        Comments about Lastolite Hot Shoe EZYBOX Softbox Kit-30 x 30" (76 x 76cm):

        For off-camera Speedlite/Speedlight shooters, this softbox along with the 24" model is an indispensable tool. This is a great softbox, easy to set up, very tough, durable, light and portable. This is the best softbox on the market for Speedlite shooters. Get it with the Manfrotto 1052 BAC light stand and the Manfrotto 026 swivel umbrella adaptor because you must be able to tilt the softbox down on the light stand. Lastolite discontinued their fantastic Tilt Head with Spigot, which is perfect for this setup.

        Lastolite 30x30 easy box review

        By Mike

        from California

        Comments about Lastolite Hot Shoe EZYBOX Softbox Kit-30 x 30" (76 x 76cm):

        I have been using the softbox now for a couple weeks. Over all I think the quality is great. The only concern I have is the mounting bracket. It feels pretty weak and I am afraid it will not hold up. I wish it was made of metal . If I put it on the hand held extension rod it flexes and bounces around quite a bit. Time will tell if it holds up.

          Easy to assemble, lightweight soft box. Ideal to use for weddings in parks.As this is rather large soft box for a speedlite, you will need one with a lot of power e.g. canon 600ex. In dark condition, you will have to shoot at full power, which will mean a recycle time of appr 1.5 secNote this works with speedlite flash only, you can NOT fit studio flash to this version. If you want to have both options, so flash and studio light , you need the EZYBOX II

            When you open it, it's large enough to cover more than half of the body and softness is perfect. But, when you fold it it's light and small to carry anywhere. Very convenience.

              Comments about Lastolite Hot Shoe EZYBOX Softbox Kit-30 x 30" (76 x 76cm):

              I purchased this softbox to give myself a little extra "umpf" when I was shooting portraits on location.

              In the past, I had used a cheaper rig from Cowboy Studios... I had to modify my last softbox with spare parts and I had to buy replacement knobs after they fell apart. The bag ripped, the diffusion material was ripped... it was a mess. In fact, the carry bag was mostly gaffers tape.

              When the Lastolite box arrived I felt like a 5 year old Christmas morning. No modifications were necessary. Everything fit together and it was as of a photographer had used it. The knobs didn't crumble in my hands, they didn't block access to other parts of the device and the box is huge.

              Now, this isn't perfect. It does still act as a giant sail waiting for a big wind to blow by so that it can kill your model or passers by.

              With that being the only shortcoming of the rig (common Lastolite! Can't you design a softbox that allows air to flow THROUGH it!?) I would highly recommend this softobox to you.

              One tip. The softbox comes in a big triangle shaped holder. If you grab the corners and twist it in on itself (like one of your big reflectors) it will shrink down in size considerably... fitting neatly into a backpack or (if you are like me) a little belt made out of gaffers tape.

              I could not be more excited about this softbox, it now comes everywhere with me and my octoboxes are enjoying some well deserved time off.

                I didn't have time before an event to try the soft box out. I was worried that i might have trouble setting it up. But it was super easy to set-up; it's got a nice big face that diffuses light nicely. I used it with my Lumopros 160 and also tried it with my Canon 600 exert. Worked perfectly well!

                I've tested a couple soft boxes and this one is the best you can find. The construction make it easy to install within seconds. The included pouch is really cool so you can carry it with you everywhere.

                One cool thing is that the flash stays outside the box so you can manually ajust your setting without having to open the box over and over. Also i have been able to use it with my camera IR function wich is impossible when flash is inside.

                I'am AMAAAAAAZED!!!! :)

                  Comments about Lastolite Hot Shoe EZYBOX Softbox Kit-30 x 30" (76 x 76cm):

                  This is a great, easy to assemble softbox. I like the fact that it effortlessly pops open and all you have to do is attach the diffusion material and the bracket on the back. I also like the fact the the Speedlite sits outside of the softbox so that I can easily check the status and/or make adjustments, unlike other Speedlite softboxes like the Westcott Apollo. I use it with the set of 3 EZYBOX Hotshoe Diffusers adding incredible versatility and essentially turning it into a strip bank or beauty dish. I've used it for portrait and beauty work and the results have been great. The only downside about it is that it doesn't fit into my light stand bag, but it's relatively flat and light and easy to transport so I don't mind. Great product!

                      I bought these for portraits and they set up in no time. Great diffused light and BIG. Would not use these alone outside even with weights. Catches wind too easily. Very well made and should last a long time. You will want an adjustable angle bracket like a Manfrotto 026.

                            This has to be the easiest setup for any softbox that I've ever used! The compact design and ease of setup alone is amazing! Great for portraits! So glad I decided to purchase it! Although I have mono lights with softbox and umbrella in the studio I preferred to use this with a speedlite for a particular studio shoot because it was very simple to setup up with great results!

                              I bought this to shoot on location (both indoors and outdoors) and love how it's easy to setup, lightweight, and sturdy.

                              My only con is that it's HUGE!!

                                Beautiful absolutely beautiful...have used it (two of these) for portraits of one and small groups. I also needed portability. I was looking at the cheaper impact models but after talking to some friends I went for the Lastolite. You know it is simply the old adage - "you get what you pay for!" and the quality of craftsmanship is 5 out of 5, ease of use is 5 out of 5, quality of light is 5 out of 5. Lightweight = 5 out of 5. you will need something like a Manfrotto 026 is you want to tilt the softbox but that is expected. If I can find one negative it is the size of the folded down package that cannot fit in a regular sized suitcase - very portable but don't try to go flying with this (oversized luggage charges will apply)

                                  Great soft box. This is a must have for portraits. I use it with canon speed-lights and it is wonderful. I shoot with the canon 5D3 and canon 85mm 1.2. And other L lens.

                                    After purchase the 24x24 thought the present soft box is definitely a great combo

                                    For Portraits or anything creative. I shot some food adds the light flow was just perfect .

                                      I do not regret this size allthough it is large for a speedlight, I luckily have sonys hvl-f58am's so power is not an issue for me, but with using it only indoors which produced great light, I am reluctant to take it outside yet, it is still a little two windy this spring. The build and quality are spectacular, set up is a cinch and very well designed, easy to use, you cannot go wrong with a lastolite. Will definately be buying another speedlight softbox from them.

                                        Just received this product and loving it. Easy to put together, sturdy and produces great modified light. Just ordered one of the smaller ones. Dumped my flourescent lighting for off camera flash shooting

                                          Opens up in about 60 seconds...easy peasy to use and connnect...

                                          I like the portability factor and the fact you don't have to use any bars to hold it open like the Octabox.....I like taking outside enviro portraits and this is the ticket for me.

                                            HUGE! That is all i need to say. But these are totally worth it.

                                            SInce they are sooo huge, I think that they should make a set of block-out panels to turn this 30x30 into a 12 x 30 strip bank if needed.
