      Comments about Westcott Apollo Orb Duo Kit:

      I really like these units and the portability. I opted to use a heavier duty stand for these but outside of that they really make great light for my shoots so far. I typically mount the 43" Orb on a boom arm to make tilting it more flexible. 4 Stars primarily due to the lightweight stands that come with this kit.

        I love the Apollo Orb Duo Kit! Very portable and easily assembles and disassembles into its nice carry case. Perfect for the photographer on the go!

          Comments about Westcott Apollo Orb Duo Kit:

          Just used this set up for an event this weekend and it worked perfect. Took a couple minutes to set up, not as fast as a set up like the Rapid Box but still pretty quick. The set up is lightweight and with the travel bag it makes it great for on the go!

          Comments about Westcott Apollo Orb Duo Kit:

          This is the perfect location kit I can use for doing a few headshots or executive portraits on location using my speedlights when I don't need to lug out all the corded lights and deal with extension cords, finding a place to plug in, worrying about someone tripping over my cords, etc. They produce a beautiful soft even light . My only problem with this kit is the range of tilt that's possible once everything's set up. You pretty much have to leave them aiming straight out . Also, once a speedlight is sealed up inside, you need to keep pulling the velcro open on the diffusers to make adjustments . This isn't a problem , though , with my Lumedyne unit with a separate controlable power pack outside the softbox or orb.
