      Comments about Airbox Macro Softbox (8.0 x 11 x 6.0"):

      We all know it's very easy to setup but it doesn't fit very well on my LED with the battery. The velcro has to go to the side a bit to fit and it's still not very snug.

      I say results are so so because you loose quite a bit of light with it on and even though it's nice smooth shadow still loss of light is not something I like here.

        Own one so far. Softens the light coming from my Switronix Bolt / Torch on-cam LED light. Attaches with 2 velcro straps around back and slightly covers the control pots on one side...but no biggy. They don't need to be strapped tightly as they are light in weight. Nothing is perfect so no complaints about this crafty product. Used the other day attached to a back light in a tight office space. Client was impressed but I try not to blow up the Airbox in front of them ;-) Thanks to BH and Airbox!

        Comments about Airbox Macro Softbox (8.0 x 11 x 6.0"):

        I purchased two of these softboxes to use with a small interview LED kit I have. I think the design is ingenious - they're well built, sturdy for something that's inflatable, and do an excellent job diffusing light and eliminating multiple shadows. The two straps on the back are easy to adjust and hold the softbox securely to the LED light.

        However, these softboxes are stronger than 216 diffusion and I lost about 2 stops of light when using them with my LED lights. Since my LED lights aren't very punchy to begin with, I returned one of the softboxes and will use my Airbox Macro softbox for those times when I need a subtle fill light.

          Comments about Airbox Macro Softbox (8.0 x 11 x 6.0"):

          A great concept that really works. We made our first use of our two Airbox Macros (with the optional Eggcrates) last week. One of the straps had not been glued or welded properly. It came off the body of the Macro with only gentle pressure, but we were still able to use the Macro. I wrote to Airbox, got an immediate apology and the offer of a replacement Macro. They've apparently seen this manufacturing flaw in a few units. I was told I could keep the flawed unit, which is still usable and probably repairable. So, great service AND a great product. My only criticism is the lack of a one-way valve in the fill stem. No big deal.

              Comments about Airbox Macro Softbox (8.0 x 11 x 6.0"):

              I've just tested the combo Airbox Macro + the eggcrate and I got really nice results. The light out of it is directional and soft ; I used it to light an interview and the result was much better than when I use only little pannel leds (with 160 leds panels, the shadows, and espacially the one of the nose, are very harsh.. as the light source is quite small)My advice for a really nice budget lighting set up is :- 3 led panels (160 leds each)- 3 airbox macro & the eggcrates° On one side of the subject, you put two airboxes side by side as a key light (by putting 2, it provides a wide lightening source and consequently a nice soft light on the subject)° On the other side, on airbox as a fill lightAnd so for less than $, you have a very nice and ultraportable lightening set up :)
