I use this softbox as the main light in portable portrait sittings. Easier to set up since there are no rods. I have used larger, similar quick set up softboxes with their strange connection to the flash and they work just fine.
This item needs an additional swivel adapter to go between light stand and the flash holder or else you can not shoot any way except totally horizontal. Get one like the Manfrotto 026.
The grid is an added accessory not found on other brands. It helps to control the light on the subject and also keeps light from spilling into the camera lens. Get it if you're serious about your portrait lighting. Best used with one person only, not for group shots.

I bought this because the reviews were good and it cost considerably less than the EZbox. My only beef with it is that the inner diffuser is ridiculously difficult to put in. The good news is that you can collapse the box with the diffusers in place. But if you often take the diffuser panels in and out, I would spring for the more expensive model that uses velcro instead of tiny metal clips.

Comments about Impact Quikbox Softbox with Shoe Mount Flash Bracket (15 x 15"):

I use two different size Quickboxes on a regular basis. They are great for speedlights and have been very durable. The optional grid is reasonably priced and works great as well.

Comments about Impact Quikbox Softbox with Shoe Mount Flash Bracket (15 x 15"):

This is the second one I've bought. I normally use only one but when doing larger groups outside I like having two to keep the light even. They fold down easily and are great to take on location. The only downside is you can't adjust the angle - only up and down on a stand - so I use a light stand bracket so I can control the angle as I need to.

    Convenient softbox for portraits. I haven't used this one yet, but I have a Quikbox 24" x 24" which works great. I needed a second one, and decided a 15" x 15" might be good for lighting a smaller area. I will use it with my Canon flashes and a PocketWizard wireless radio control. It is quick to unfold and attach to a light stand with an external flash.

    Size great for location work or studio. When it's deployed, it's very rigid and the bracket is simple and it works better than getting many assorted connectors. Got the egg crate too. Nikon SB910 fits great. I like it a lot.

        Excellent addition to both indoor and outdoor photo shoots. Added weight to stabilize outdoor shoots. Worked flawlessly with Nikon SB600 to light outdoor portrait shoot. Highly portable and very easy to setup,move and takedown. Looking forward to next shoot.

            Comments about Impact Quikbox Softbox with Shoe Mount Flash Bracket (15 x 15"):

            I shoot seniors and couples without an assistant. I'm using a Nikon SB-910 and Pocketwizards on a lightstand as well as carrying my Nikon D3s. I was using a larger quickbox (24"x24") and was making it just fine, but wondered if I sized down to the 15"x15" if I would notice any quality difference. Well, I didn't notice any substantial difference as far as the quality of light, but I sure notice a difference moving around with this smaller softbox attached. The only negative I can say is the lollypop mount that the softbox attaches to could be an inch or two longer. Once you have the Pocketwizard and the flash attached, you sit a little high. I had to remove one of the o-rings on the mounting hardware and that helps to get the flash lower. All in all, a great buy.

              This soft box works great. Wanted something not big to work with my shoot through umbrellas. I shot a lot of action sport athletes and this works great for me indoors and out.

              this product will not replace your studio soft box , it will gives you slight soft touch but not what I'm looking for, still the feel is sharp , what i like the best in this mini soft box that it will cover almost your full subject. and very portable and well built.
