The Vello Universal Softbox for Portable Flash (Medium) spreads and diffuses the light from an on-camera flash in the direct flash position. It's lightweight, unobtrusive and easy to attach--ideal for any fast-moving shooting situations. It attaches to most on-camera shoe-mount flashes using the included touch-tab fasteners.

Unlike some other on-flash types of softboxes, this model was designed so that it does not block the exposure sensors or auto focus assist beams found on most flashes.

        Comments about Vello Universal Softbox for Portable Flash (Medium):

        I have a nikon D700 with an SB900 flash. Was attracted to the unit because I thought it would stay clear of the sensor/IR panel on the flash. Also I like how compact it is compared to using a Fong. Used it on a warm day. Unit got soft and sagged blocking my infrared focus assist produced by the flash. Had to stop using it. I returned it to B&H. The plastic material loses its rigidity above 50 degrees. Its a great idea. It just needs to be made of something that will keep each panel more rigid and still have folding joints.

          Comments about Vello Universal Softbox for Portable Flash (Medium):

          Very portable softbox, folds flat, fits the Canon 430EXII fairly well, and gives generally pleasing results. But the plasticy build quality was disappointing and the design makes it awkward to attach to the flash properly. My advice, spend a bit more on a higher quality softbox that's going to last you longer.
