Vello FD-900 overview

  • 1Description

This Universal Inflatable Softbox from Vello fits around the head of most hot shoe flashes, and is held in place with an elastic drawstring and a thick rubber band. The softbox diffuses your flash's light, producing softer shadows while reducing its output by approximately 1.5 stops.

The shape of the softbox allows most flash's auto-focus assist beams to remain functional, allowing you to focus in low light. It is easily inflated and deflated, for quick setup. When deflated, the softbox folds up small enough to slide into a camera bag's pocket.

    Universal Inflatable Softbox for Hot Shoe Flashes is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful way to have FUN! :D I accidentally found this little Softbox, but when I realized it's an inflatable one, I immediately had to get it for it's 'fun factor' alone! :D As it turns out, this is NOT a toy, but a fully functional and very effective softbox that distributes the light and soften the shadows as it should. Testing them in triple flash-setup the results are even better! Storage is very easy, they fold into nothing. Love them, hopefully they will last for a long time.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but may need work. I tried this softbox and it does improve direct flash results. It requires about 1 stop of increased flash power but that is expected. When I first tried to attach it to my Canon 430 EXII flash, it couldn't be done. The attachment skirt is for a much larger flash. The solution is very simple, just remove the elastic cord and sliding lock, then cut an appropriate amount of the skirt from the ends of all four flaps, eight cuts with scissors to make the edge dimensions just a little less than those of the flash head. Make the cuts to the corner where two adjoining flaps meet and then once reassembled, it should tighten to the size needed for your flash. If you wrap the included black rubber band around the flash head, it will give the material something more secure to hold to than the smooth plastic of the flash head. After this, the results are very pleasing with softer edges and less black shadows. The mods I had to make are the only reason I didn't give it five stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Universal Inflatable Softbox from Vello This is an interesting softbox. Not sure if it really does a better or worse job than more traditional ones, but worth trying it out at this price point.
