      The softbox doesn't mount on a speed ring, instead it's directly on the light fixture. This means it can only be vertical or horizontal and can be time consuming to rotate. It directs the light evenly, doesn't affect the color and is otherwise functional. It has an outer diffusion that fits in snugly with velcro, but no inner baffle.

          This product is tricky when you first set-up since it's pretty tight! Once you get out of your fears of breaking it actually use it.. it's an amazing product and quite bigger than anticipated, which is perfect for me

              This softbox is decent enough at diffusing light but it's a huge pain to set up and take down. It's also a bit flimsy but you get what you pay for. It's fine for me as I rarely shoot in studio anyway.

                I use this with the Impact single socket flourescent fixture and it has been working well. My giant 105W CFL bulb (the compact part of that isn't quite correct with that bulb) fits in it fine. As of right now, the 4 poles that hold it are a little tight and tricky to put in. I'm hoping that over time it will stretch a little and get easier, but it certainly isn't going to fall off because it was loose.

                  product was easy to put together and travel with! I had no problems figuring it out. One thing to remember is to position/align front of soft box with a leg to help with tipping. Lighting was really useful for the event photography I completed- I was happy with the pictures- could have used a 3rd light to help with some shadowing but I am satisfied with the product for the price.

                      When I ordered two sets of these light kits, I didn't really expect much, given their discounted price. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The kits are easy to assemble, provide a reasonable amount of soft light, and weigh only about 6-7 pounds per assembly. They probably wouldn't stand up to heavy use, but pro-level gear would cost many times the price of these units. These would be a good choice for an occasional user or as fill lights in a larger setup.

                            2 of 3 of a kit. Great and compact, very light. The only down side to this is that it is alittle time consuming to build up and tear down.

                                Kinda cumbersome to set up and take down; best left attached and in-home or in-studio. Nice diffusion though.

                                I purchased as a kit. I am well pleased

                                    Comments about Impact 50 x 70 cm Softbox for Fluorescent Fixtures:

                                    This was part of a light kit I order. Once you figure out how to put it together, which did not take long, you can assembly it in about 2 minutes or less. This softbox combined with the light fixture finally gave me even lighting with allowed me to get rid of the hot spots off my face. I use this kit to light up my office as a film my sermons.
