Interfit STR177 overview

  • 1Description

Useful for modifying the light from an on-camera shoe-mounted flash unit, the 16 x 16" Interfit Strobies S-Type Speedlight Bracket and Softbox Kit provides users with a diffuse option as well as the capability to add other accessories via the S-type mount. The bracket clamps directly to flash heads up to 2.2 x 3.1" in size and leaves the body free to move around for easily positioning your sensors. The top clamp features a concave design for compatibility with the Pro-flash One-Eighty and other bare-bulb flashes. Also, the unit has a built-in umbrella mount for 8mm shafts and can be placed on a standard 5/8" stand.

The softbox will greatly diffuse the light from your flash and it has a silver interior for sharper contrast. The two diffusers are also removable for more lighting options. Additionally, a nylon carrying bag is included.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine for me, could be improved I've had two of these for over a year, use them mostly for macro photography in the field and location portraits. One is the original Strobies item as listed here, bought from B&H, the other an off-brand replica I received from a friend, actually indistinguishable from the original so perhaps they both come from the same factory. This kit definitely improves the quality of light over that produced by a bare flash. It also definitely beats any kind of solution in which the light modifier or soft-box is attached directly to the speed light, such as the original Strobies kit, which I also have but rarely use. Those put all the weight on the swiveling flash head itself, which then fails to stay in position with the additional load (a very poor design solution in my experience). Instead, with this kit you secure the flash unto the bracket and the flash doesn't have to bear the load of the soft-box. You can turn the lower end of the flash unit around as needed to make sure the sensor is pointed towards your camera's master flash, for proper wireless communication between the two. Then you snap the soft-box unto the ring and the whole assembly can be tilted up and down or panned sideways on your lightstand as needed to direct your light. Caveat: the top screw/bracket thing used to securely hold the flash in place is not permanently attached to the system, so once you take the flash off or store the kit, it tends to fall off and may be lost if you're not careful. I've resorted to using a velcro tie-strap to keep it in place during transport. The lever used to tighten and loosen the swivel has a button that should act like a clutch mechanism, so that as you tighten the swivel and bump against the soft-box you can press that clutch button, move the lever back without loosening the swivel, then depress the button to continue tightening. Perhaps it's me, but oftentimes this feels more cumbersome than it should and I end up rotating the soft-box out of the way to have more clearance for the lever as I continue tightening, then rotate the soft-box back into position (easily done as the soft-box just snaps unto the ring by pressure without other permanent attachments, so it can be rotated freely). As others have pointed out, the soft-box does tend to loose its square form factor if you fold it / unfold it many times, so I tend to keep it assembled unless it's strictly needed to disassemble for transport. This may or may not be a deciding factor for some of you. I think this kit can be improved, but so far it has performed well for my kind of use. I give it four stars, plus five stars to B&H for its unwavering level of customer service.
