      Comments about Elinchrom 15.75 x 15.75 (40 x 40 cm) Softbox for Quadra Flash Head:

      (1) Before constructing the box decide whether you want a square or a diamond. I went for diamond.(2) The fourth rod is hard to insert. I do not plan to take apart the box. (3) Quality is good and box is easy to put onto the Quadra-head.(4) I can carry the light-stand with box on Quadra-head without an assistant. (5) The box I think is too small for outside. In studio I shoot with a 17" beauty dish less than 3' from subject. Outdoors I do not want a light close to my subject. The box from a distance gives a tiny catchlight.

      Comments about Elinchrom 15.75 x 15.75 (40 x 40 cm) Softbox for Quadra Flash Head:

      I use both this square reflector and it's slightly larger 56cm octa/beauty dish version which for some unfathomable reason is a special order item - Mfr item: 26600. I much prefer the octa version, but both are great for easy transportation. Takes some effort to assemble, but gets quite easy with sufficient practice. The quadra plastic speedring also slides quite tight over a stofen diffusor for use with my Canon 580II EX flashes, making it perform nice double duty. The octa is my most used light modifier, I couldn't live without it.

      Useful -- but hard to assemble

            I love that it goes on the quadra wihtout the adapter ring - but it is really difficult to put together -- making it less portable for its small size. My other elinchrome softboxes fold up easily leaving the metal ribs in place. This one you have to completely take apart to fold it up and it is not so easy to stretch the box over the rods.

            - the product is great for travel - so small goes into the size of a small toiletries bag.
            - good for lighting small areas
            - it is smaller than I expected - make sure you check measurements to check it will do what you need it for.

              I shoot on location out doors 100% of the time we have no inside studio. I keep this soft box on the head all the time it is small and easy to fit in the car on the head open. I shoot all people photos with groups as large as 30 people and this soft box and the Quadra works fantastic. I also use it for wedding formal photos and bride and groom photos the Quadra and this soft box are my everything light set up i use almost every day.

                Comments about Elinchrom 15.75 x 15.75 (40 x 40 cm) Softbox for Quadra Flash Head:

                This is a nice option to have as a small softbox for the Ranger Quadra set. This is currently the only softbox available for the heads without using the adapter. It packs very small and seems durable. It provides nice even light. It took a while to setup the first time, but once you figure it out it's not too difficult.
