Cactus CB-60 overview

  • 1Description

The 24 x 24" CB-60 Foldable Softbox from Cactus softens the light from a portable flash unit. It utilizes a soft rubber clamp that allows the bracket to hold a flash head up to 3 x 2", reducing the strain put on the mounting shoe. The bracket also features a Bowens S-type mount for using it with other light modifiers.

The softbox has a reflective silver interior and two white diffuser cloths for controlling the power and look of your light. Additionally, the softbox has a tilting lock handle for adjusting the angle of the light. It also comes with an umbrella swivel mount with a locking screw and will fit on most light stands. A carrying case and carrying bag are included for convenience.

    Cactus CB-60 reviews

    CB-60 Foldable Softbox (24 x 24") is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More efficient than a shoot-through umbrella Quick set up. Solid, logical speedlight mount. I can drop my speedlight output 2 stops; saving battery life and reducing recyle time. In some sports lighting cases it allows me a full burst using my Canon 5D mkii and Yongnuo YN685's (i.e. the buffer fills and shot rate slows but the flash keeps popping, which is a nice change compared to an umbrella) Remember not to compare the cost of the box to an umbrella. The umbrella does not include an umbrella bracket. Also, with this bracket, you can use the soft box or an umbrella, the umbrella bracket only works with an umbrella. I got the first one to test it...I will be getting another shortly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great! This really changed my flash portraits. It does all the things more expensive soft boxes do at least as a 24 inch. It seems well made and the fitting on the back is solid. Double diffusion is really a requirement and some don't have it but this one does. It folds flat but I really can't figure out how to get it into the bag coiled round. I never was good at that kind of folding. You clearly must get remote triggers. The Cactus V5's are OK for a great value purchase. A flash cord with a soft box would be a nightmare. Make sure you can elevate the soft box over the head head at 45 degrees and it's a walk in the park. At f/5.6 @ 1/125 speedlight @ 1/4 power it's a no brainer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Softbox, especially if you're a noob I'm new to photography, but I have taken several classes and assisted professional photographers where I can learn and pick up some new things! EVERY pro photographer I've assisted all have this cactus box. And they all give me the same suggestion, INVEST IN QUALITY GEAR. You don't want to buy the $$version only to have it break a little down the line. You might as well buy the $$one and have it work FOR you. This cactus box holds very well, is sturdy, yet easily foldable. I highly recommend it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good softbox This is my first softbox, so can't compare the quality or usefulness against any others out there. The Cactus softbox works well for my one flash lighting. The light quality and construction is good on this softbox. The folding takes a little effort and a few tries to get it right. The thing I like the most is the flash bracket that comes with the softbox. I use the softbox with a Canon 580exii and the Yonguno yn-660c TTL triggers mounted on the flash hotshoe, so the flash mounts to the softbox without any flash height interference as seen with higher price softboxes of the same size where the mounting bracket is a hotshoe mount type. Also, my first shoot with it was outside and a little breezy. The slight wind almost knocked over the softbox and stand, but even with slight wind the softbox stayed mounted to the mounting bracket.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact Unit With Carry Bag I love that the softbox and flash bracket come in a nice zippered bag with handle. Makes for great storage. Softbox works well once you figure out how to attach the bracket. (Bracket slides into ears at the back end of the softbox. Brack will hold just about any flash. Twisting the softbox into its storage size takes a bit of doing just like 5 in one reflectors. Once again Cactus has produced a nice product well branded and well made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I had purchased another softbox and sent it back due to it being very cheaply made. The CB-60 is great for my needs. Easy setup and a solid product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This softbox is great and has an s-mount I enjoy this new tool. It show you don't have to spend a lot of money to have good tools.
