Mini Softbox with UltraStrap is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool Used with my 580EX on a EOS 40D, this really does soften the flash but also cuts the distance. I found it really came in handy when used for informal portraits on the camera's built in Portrait Mode believe it or not. This is well worth the price but don't expect it to turn you into Ansel Adems! :-) The included velcro fasteners are adequate but require a small amount of futzing, but that is to be expected. I do have the cinch strap too and found that really aids in keeping the item in place. I use the Pocket Bounce as well, same method of attaching which is nice. Also a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It actually works GREAT! I tested this indoors. Sometimes when you're shooting events, you can't bounce everything off the ceiling specially on dance floors where they could have huge domes in dark color. Your only option is to flash the subject directly which I hate as it casts harsh shadows, but with this mini softbox it really made a huge different. You do have to increase the power a little but the picture looks 10 times better. The construction is a bit cheap. For this price, they could have added the Velcro or something. Who wants to tape their expensive flash? I still gave it 5 star because in the end, you do get the results. Would love to try the other sizes one day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nifty Concept Saw this product in a photography book and it got my attention. This really does work. It is bulky when on but flattens down when in storage which makes it befeficial when going location to location. The biggest con that I read about was that shooters were upset about haveing to mount this softbox to their flash heads with velcro(hook/loof fasteners). What I did was, I already had a SBM supreme flash diffuser(around $15 BH) that was my standard diffuser. I took a razor knife and cut the end off to be flush w/ the end of my Canon 430EX flash. Then I put the velcro on the remaining portion of the SBM diffuser that, you guessed it, has a perfect fit to my particular flash. Now I can attatch my mini softbox to my flash and I always have a perfect fit w/o any velcro being applied to my expensive flash. I also have the Gary Fong Light Sphere II and it works great but sometimes I just like the light produced from the mini softbox. It just depends what your looking for in your exposure. Don't expect to get any real distance exposuer from this unit either. It is exclusively a close-up portrait product and should only be used as such.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A softbox in the palm of your hand This device is just the thing for shooting indoors or outdoors with an on camera flash. It is quick to install and provides soft light for pictures of people. I use it whenever I use my Nikon SB800 strobe on camera. An inexpensive way to get better pictures.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value, but velcro not the greatest Have used two of these over the years with no complaints. Wish they included some type of threaded elastic strap that tighted with velcro instead of just the stick-on velcro pads. The pads permanantly mar whatever flash you attach this to, which is not a big deal unless someday you want to resell the flash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have used this little baby on Vivitar, Sunpak and Nikon flashes -- it has worked very well in all applications. Softens and evens out illumination and minimizes shadows. It works great with a flash mounted on a stroboframe bracket. I've used it for portraits, weddings, P.R. photos you name it. I highly recommend it. Folds FLAT for easy storage in camera bag or pocket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Diffuser/Good. Velcro/Bad Decent quality for the money. The velcro used to attach it to the flash unit is asking much of customers to do. Just a black non-slip elastic band would of solved the problem. Giving us Velcro to permanently attach to our expensive flashes seems like such a lazy solution that annoys the owner in the end. Im actually using a rubber band instead (see photo). A bit ghetto but its less annoying than having velcro permanently on my flash.Does a good job of diffusing considering how small it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lumiquest Mini Softbox Just did my shoot with this product and I was very impressed with the results. It created great light on the subject and produced very vivid colors. Still have to live the shadows of using on camera flash but the Lumiquest is a huge improvement over a bare flash or the Stofen Omnibounce which I used previously. Highly recommend this product.
