    Comments about Softbox, Silver Interior - 24x32":

    I've had mixed experiences with Westcott products over the years, but the Pro Signature 24x32 is a great softbox at a very attractive price. I've used a number of different softboxes in the past and find that the materials and construction of this box leaves me thinking that it's going to last me a good long time.

    If you have ever used a softbox, you know that they can sometimes be difficult to assemble and even harder to break down. This box was easy for me to put together on the very first try. The rod pockets are sturdy and inspire confidence that they will stand up to many years of use.

    I generally leave this box attached to a strobe - but broke it down just to see how much work was involved. I often have to break out the work gloves to manhandle the support rods on other boxes, however the rods in this product have a nice bit of give to them and I was able to easily disassemble the box with my bare hands.

    I highly recommend the Pro Signature 24.32 to anyone who is looking for a box that is suitable to both studio and location work.

    I'm able to leave this up in my back seat and easily move around with it on location. Not to big but gives nice coverage.

      Comments about Softbox, Silver Interior - 24x32":

      I've used Westcott softboxes and Chimera sofboxes in the past but mainly opted for these due to the price (really can't be the price point). But one main thing that I've noticed with this softbox is that the velcro in the back doesn't fit snuggly against my chimera quick release speed ring for my lowel dp light.

      I'm not entirely sure if it's the speed ring that's causing the fit to be different because when used on an arri 750+ that already comes with a speed ring, it works wonderful. I just think that Westcott should make the softbox to fit multiple applications, not just some.

            Perfect size, good quality and versatile. Could not get this one in Canada. B7H had it at a good price [...]Using it on TD6 continuous lighting but also works great with My Alien Bees with the Westcott 0050 adaptor ring. Must have in your kit.

              Comments about Softbox, White Interior - 24x32":

              I've delayed purchasing softboxes until I found just the right ones for my work. I purchased two of these and can't tell you how satisfied I am. I ran a two hour shoot using 750W constant lights and the softbox material remained cool throughout the shoot.

              Although I've seen one other photographer work at putting together a softbox, this baby goes together in a snap. No question I'd buy again if the need arises.

              We have 5 of these lights lighting the green screen in our video studio. They provide excellent illumination which consistently allows a perfect key.

              At 1,000 watts they are hot and I recommend using them in large rooms or rooms with high ceilings.
