      Comments about Creative Light 4x6' Recessed Front Softbox:

      I don't know how useful these notes will be given CL's demise; however, they should apply to the Profoto RFi 4x6 assuming that is the reincarnation of the CL. I wanted this for full length family studio portraits using my D1 lights. So far so good. I have not done any evenness measures but the results are what I wanted. I was getting some spill so I added a softgrid and that helped. The biggest issue for me has been supporting the box. I did not have any experience with such a large box. After some experiments with counterweights on the lights, I ended up using a separate stand to support the box from the top front. That seems to work well for me.

        Comments about Creative Light 4x6' Recessed Front Softbox:

        I'm a pro photographer in San Diego and I have all the Creative Lighting soft boxes. They create amazing light and are really easy to setup and break down. This brand is being discontinued, but Profoto is coming out with a revamped model.
        The bag that stores the boxes are pretty bad. The velcro is on the inside of the opening, this catches the box going in and out.
        All in all it's a great product.

        Comments about Creative Light 4x6' Recessed Front Softbox:

        Rods pop through the ends of pockets after 2 dozen shoots... had to sew it back together. Not impressed. Speedrings for alienbees/einstein exhibit horrible quality control.
