The Airbox Macro Softbox Kit (8.0 x 11 x 6.0-6.5") from Airbox Lights is an inflatable softbox that's compatible with a wide range of LED fixtures measuring between 4.0-7.5" in width. The box's uniquely soft output is a result of the combination of a silver interior and front and rear panel construction that utilizes Half Soft Frost diffusion with only minimal light loss. You can diffuse it still more via the front face pocket with an optional diffusion filter or add some color with a gel. The featherweight (3.0 oz) Macro Softbox mounts with simple touch-fasteners, sets up and breaks down in an instant and packs flat in your gear bag or pocket. The included Eggcrate Grid mounts to the front of the Airbox Macro via touch fasteners. The tight 3/8" honeycomb grid substantially reduces the beam spread and spill light, concentrating the Airbox Macro's output on your subject.

            Very simple concept but I'm surprised by how well it performs...
            Very inexpensive, doesn't weight anything and takes away no room. The quality of softening on the - always - too harsh LED is really good. Great for travelling and documentary.
            The built quality seems pretty good so far.

              Better than I thought. Very useful when mobility is very important. Provides a nice soft light when needed in a tight spot or quickly when shooting RunNGun. Plus, its affordable.

                I absolutely love this product. I'm using it on both a Litepanel Mini and Switronix Bolt. It does reduce the amount of light a little bit, but the quality of the light is worth it. Faces look beautiful and smooth. These soft boxes softens all the harshness of the LED to create a really nice lamp. The quality of the product is very high. the plastic feels strong and it packs very small. I highly suggest using the Eggcrate to reduce spill. I've used these for both studio and field work and recently used it on a shoot that required me to fit all my gear into 2 travel cases. This fit perfectly in my cary-on. For the price, it's a must-have.

                      Great, small, compact unit for softening up LED lights. Quick and easy to set up. Haven't found much use in the egg crate, but glad that I got it. Wish that the tube for blowing air in had a stopper valve so that it doesn't deflate when you take your mouth off.

                        I use this to soften the light from a 160 LED light. A product like this softens the light by effectively make the light larger. This it does, just not as much as I was expecting. In the process, it also diminishes the light's luminosity - but I knew that would happen, no free lunch and all that. This accessory has its place, but it is not a substitute for a larger softbox or independent diffusion panel.

                        On the plus side, it's not expensive, it's simple, and it's light. I think it's a nominal value; not great but not bad either.

                          I've looked long for a good light modifier for my LED's and this is it! Used on the Digital Juice 256's, this softens the light perfectly, yet retains enough brightness. Be sure to take off the Digital Juice diffusion before using these. The grids keep spill to a minimum. Lack of a valve on the blow-up is actually perfect. Don't blow these up "hard" and the front and back will be flat instead of bowed out like in the photo. I leave my grids attached at all times.

                                Pretty straight forward design. Try not to blow them up in front of your clients though, it looks odd.
                                We use these to soften the light on our talent when shooting against a green screen.
                                We bought these to match our Digital Juice 256 LED lights. They are not quite as wide as the lights, so we are obviously losing a bit of brightness, but they do a decent job. Cheap too. We will see how long they last. They do come with a "patch kit" - a plastic sticker!
                                Oh, and I am not a professional photographer, but a professional videographer/producer (that option wasn't available).

                                Comments about Airbox Macro Softbox Kit with Eggcrate (8.0 x 11 x 6.0-6.5"):

                                Even though I flet like I was blowing up a pool toy, this works well on my video light on a stand and softens the light. I plan on using it for adding a bit more light in portraits when at an event.
