      Comments about Impact Luxbanx Extra Large Rectangular Softbox (54 x 72"):

      I love large softboxes for portrait photography and this is about as big as you can get. Wonderful wrap around light - perfect for portrait work if you have the space in your camera room. At the price point, I didn't have very high expectations for this modifier. I'm happy to report that not only did the quality exceed my expectations, the quality of the components are excellent.

      My only "complaint" about this softbox is that it is very deep, I'd prefer something more shallow to give me a little more freedom in the studio (space considerations). At the price paid, it is definitely a NIT that I'm picking here but if you shoot in tight quarters then you might want to skip this one. Fortunately, I have just enough room!

      Comments about Impact Luxbanx Extra Large Rectangular Softbox (54 x 72"):

      The light quality is of course great, the price is right, and the poles come apart and bend like in a camping tent so it can be stored in a much smaller bag.

      The downside is that it a very heavy modifier, to heavy for my Dynalite heads to hold up on their own. To use this modifier I have to clamp a sandbag to the handle of my flash head so it wont slowly tilt down.

      Booming a light with this softbox requires at least 3 sandbags, one to keep the head from tilting down, one to balance the added weight on the other side of the boom, and then with 40-50lbs of sand in the air you're wise to bag the heck out of the bottom of the stand.

          I use this massive softbox for group shots and for product shots. It is well made and at a good price as well.
