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.

      Handy item for use in a small studio set up or for capturing portraits at some events. A little awkward to use on camera and the power on the speedlite needs to be reduced as well to get the softening of the flash that I want.

      I use this on my Nikon SB-600 flash and it works well. It fits securely around the flash head with an elastic band and Velcro fastener. I took two shots, one with the bare flash and the other with this product. It was clear the diffuser was doing its job by eliminating hard shadows from the subject. Is a bit challenging to get it on the flash square, but it sets up in a minute or two and fits nicely in my camera bag when collapsed. It comes with its own bag as well which is a bit larger than the Pocketbox Mini which made it too large for the pocket on my camera bag. Feels rugged. Lightweight.

            All in all pretty great for the money. However my expectations for this product were a little too high. There is a noticeable difference in diffusion, but not as much as you might expect. Then again for the size and price this is probably a given. I would recommend, but wouldn't expect to be blown away.

              It fit easaly in your camera bag,,it has a sleeve to protect it.
              Fits perfectly and the velcro is made also of rubber so it streched.
              Why did I not know of this product before.....better late than never.

                  I have used this on off camera flash for portraits and macro with great results. It is a no brainer at the price. Folds up flat in it's own case so you can always have it with you. One of the best inexpensive purchases you can make. Well made too.

                    I hate harsh direct light. This pocketbox really helps soften the light. The only real question is how big do you need it. I was afraid that it would be too big and block the AF sensors on the flash but it's works fine so far.

                    Comments about Westcott Pocketbox Mini - 6 x 7":

                    Works well for size and costs. Flash end of the soft box is considerably larger than 430 speedlite used, the sewn in strap is convenient but tends to make excess materials bunch on the flash when strapping down and pulling against anchor point. This also distorts the form of the soft box and can limit its effectiveness, I believe an external strap can be used and the soft box excess material can be evenly distributed on the flash body and equal pressure applied without twisting the box when pulling on the sewn in Velcro strap. Had some box formation and shape holding issues from being folded in shipment.

                        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.
