The Impact Quikbox Softbox (15 x 15") is a great way soften the output of your studio or battery powered flash unit. The Quikbox lives up to its name by popping open and assembling in a minute or two. Just open the softbox, add the diffusers and the required speed ring that fits your strobe, mount it on a light stand and you're ready to shoot.
Using a softbox with your strobe will help to diffuse and evenly distribute the light output of the flash. This will help to reduce those harsh shadows which are often the result of open flash photography. The Quikbox design solves the problem by using an internal diffuser to minimize the possibility of hotspots from the strobe source while the recessed front face helps to control spill light. The Quikbox requires separate purchase or use of a standard speed ring insert matched to your brand of strobe head.
Note: all standard speedrings have 2 parts that can be separated: the outer support ring that accepts the softbox poles and the inner insert with your strobe's mount. Since the Quikbox is free-standing, you need only pull the separated insert through aperture at the back of the box and mount it to the strobe.
