Product Highlights
  • Softens Direct Flash
  • Wide Beam Spread
  • Use on or off Camera
  • Defeats Redeye
  • Ideal for Fill Light

The Westcott Pocketbox Mini - 6 x 7" is an ideal way to soften the output of your flash. The rectangular shape yields a wide beam spread which is great for portraiture. The PocketBox Mini sets up in seconds and is compatible with any shoe-type or small flash head, whether you're using it on or off camera. First and foremost, it eliminates the harsh shadows produced with direct flash, especially when the flash is the main source of light. Since the light is diffused, redeye is minimized and contrast softened. The PocketBox Mini features a silver interior to maximize your flash's output, as well as a removable diffusion panel for even output.

      I am into hummingbird photography and I wanted to produce some natural-looking images of hummingbirds in flight so I got a set of these diffusers.
      I am pleased with the quality of these diffusers and my pictures looks way better now, so I am glad I made the little investment. I have to warn you though, that if you use this diffisers you will lose at least one stop of light, not a problem, just make your flashes fire at higher power.

      This product works as advertised and mounts to my flash easily. It is large to carry around in my slingbag, but I mostly use to take portraits of my grandchildren so portability not an issue. It could partially block the infrared sensor on my flash unless the head is elevated slightly when making TTL flash exposures.

        I'm using this product to add soft fill for portraits. The box is small and lightweight and comes with a nice carry bag.

        So far I like everything about it.

        Perfectly portable

        By Raincheck

        from The Desert Southwest

        Comments about Westcott Pocketbox Mini - 6 x 7":

        I now always have a soft box with me when I shoot. This fits in any camera bag (even just a backpack) that I may be carrying. It is tiny and weighs nothing. It attaches easily and securely to my Olympus FL600r flash. No, it is not a big soft box, and the bigger the box the better the light. So I am giving it four stars. But that is sort of unfair. The whole point is that it is small. It is easy and convenient to carry soft diffused light wherever I go.

        Mostly I use it with a TTL cord. So I get the flash off camera and diffused and use my left hand to hold it out and aim. Such a simple way to improve the lighting a lot when on the go.

          It bounces, and lets the light pass through nicely ans it really softness the hard light. The only thing is that, on my speedlight, looks a little bit larger , so one needs to really tight it up.

              Very handy little softbox that does the job when on camera flash is your only option. Eliminates red eye and softens the light! Also works great off camera for fill flash. Easy to use right out of the box.

                  This is a simple and easy to use small softbox. I was able to connect it to my Nikon SB600 as soon as I opened it out of the box. I use it at home, for taking indoor portraits.

                            Trying to perfect Meet Your Neighbor style phots and found I need to soften my flash. Fits great on the flash unit for both on and off camera. The attachement strap does not always secure the box firmly to the flash. Better used at distance rather than close ups. Met my requirements.

                              Use this mini softbox on my on camera flash and love it. Does a great job of softening down harsh light when a flash is needed. I normally try to use reflectors and natural light when available, but this is nice to turn to when extra light is needed.

                              Great if you work alone. However, if you work with an assistant and have the extra money, I would suggest a larger softbox.

                                  I am into hummingbird photography and I wanted to produce some natural-looking images of hummingbirds in flight so I got a set of these diffusers.
                                  I am pleased with the quality of these diffusers and my pictures looks way better now, so I am glad I made the little investment. I have to warn you though, that if you use this diffisers you will lose at least one stop of light, not a problem, just make your flashes fire at higher power.

                                    Used for an event and just the right soft light needed without having to bounce the light elsewhere.

                                      I like to have my flash diffused and I found this with a reasonable price and go ahead and bouth it. No regrets so far. I like the design and functionality easy to store and it came with its own pouch. It doesnt collapse like some other types out there. It does make a difference cause it sofetens the light no more harsh light even when you direct this to their faces. Highly recommended. Oh BTW i use this for my canon 580EXII flashes it fits perfectly and snugly and doesnt look ugly.

                                          Ordered two to use for a outdoor night wedding. Put them on a SB900 & SB910. Worked like thay said thay would. Soften up the light. Ran the RAW photos through Lightroom, ALL photo's were a A+.
