    Poor Quality - Lasted 1 season - get your duct-tape out!

    By Robert
    Rated 2 out of 5
    Date: 2022-04-15

    I had very high expectations for this unit. I am a huge profoto user - I shoot B1x's and could not be happier with everything about my Profoto gear - except this thing! Setup isn't terribly difficult. I would call this very flimsy. Very light duty. This is not meant for the photographer on the go. If this goes up on a light and stand, and never moves around- you're probably fine to gain the full benefit of this for years to come. If you use your gear on the go- this does not hold up to travel. Since this is not meant to be quickly taken apart; once it is setup, the only way to transport it is to do so as seen in the photos - as it does not collapse easily. There are 4 rods that slide though slips which connect at one end into the speedring apparatus, and at the other end, there is a pocket made of reinforced stitched fabric. The unit creates its shape by bending the rods under slight pressure caused by these two endpoints. The end of the rod with fabric essentially wears through- and at this point all 4 rods have cut their ways through the fabric, leaving my unit entirely useless. I tried to reach out to customer service and they asked that I send it to them through the warranty process- fair enough- I should have done this and probably would have had them send me a new one... It barely lasted through the 1 year warranty period. I'm too busy to go around sending broken gear, and it wasn't even worth my time to do so. I was stuck on location when this popped through the ends, and put me in a pinch. I spent about 10 minutes duct-taping it just to get through my high volume work for that date. I subsequently had to tape all 4 corners as each one popped through one-by-one. Unfortunately they don't sell the part (Fabric portion) so I can't even replace that - I have to buy a whole new unit, and you guessed it - it won't be this one. I love Profoto - and am their biggest fan. But I am disappointed and will not buy any product in this line made of this quality. I stupidly purchased the grid that goes with it... $220+ for the unit, $140 more for a grid that is now useless as I don't have a working unit anymore.

    Expensive but worth it.

    The Profoto modifiers are all very expensive for what they are, HOWEVER, they make up for it in their build quality and customer service!

    Another Case of Poor Quality

    I only buy Profoto lights and modifiers, but as for the OCF 1 x 3; it is a huge disappointment. Thin and flimsy material, it doesn't fit regardless of how hard you attempt to stretch the material to overlap to block extraneous light from leaking. I would have expected a better quality product. Profoto, you have to do better than this--please.

    As all the Profoto items, this is a very high quality item, easy to assemble, and it’s light is very soft and good, obviously, when you say “very high quality item” it doesn’t means that you can throw it or treat it like a piece of something, you need to be careful and take care of it. Recommended.

    Good quality. The benefit is the colour coded rod system. NOTHING is more annoying than fumbling with rod position during setup. A bit price but expected. (The Profoto Tax) Good construction so i anticipate years of use.

    Consistent level of light....

    As always my Profoto soft boxes have been one of my favorites. While I realize its made for portability I do think Profoto could find a way to m make them just a bit more sturdy, but so far I have no issues.

    Great Stripbox

    Bought this for my b10+, super light weight and perfect for travel or studio photography. One thing to note is that the front diffusion panel is sewed on and cannot be take off, only the inner diffusion baffel can be removed. I believe the RFI version of profoto's stripbox can have the front diffusion panel removed. It's really a non issue but, just something to note that doesn't seem to be listed anywhere. Also, the stripbox is kind of difficult to pack down once it's been assembled but otherwise this is a great light modifier!

    Does the OCF Softbox work with the D1?

    While this softbox will fit the D1, it is not recommended since the modeling lamp is a 300 watt tungsten halogen type lamp and the since the softbox is not rated for heat.
