Excellent value

I don't have a lot of flash opportunities but I had been unhappy with a plastic cap diffuser. This does a much better job, and while a dome-style diffuser might be even better I appreciate how this folds flat for transport. Very happy.

Great softbox

Love that it fits my flash so well. It comes in handy when I have to point the flash directly at the subject but want softer light.

Better than nothing

If you need a flash modifier, this is better than nothing. By that, I mean, it works, but doesn't spread the light as a bigger modifier would. It barely spreads and softens light from a flash. At the same time, the price is right, construction seems decent and it is easy to carry around.

Fantastic!

It is amazing I haven't used this many years ago! Photography lighting had always been my nemesis until now. Highly recommended for better lighting techniques.

I am using a few of these on my Godox AD200s. They are perfect for spreading the light in areas where an umbrella is not practical or where you want the light to be concentrated but not totally spread out. I also like that the portable softbox folds easily into my flash bag.

Perfect!

question

I'm interested in purchasing the 8 Octa softbox to use with my Nikon SB-700 flash. Does the softbox have any sort of frame inside that keeps its shape or does it collapse into itself? Does it diminish the power level of the flash a lot?
Asked by: Anonymous
This 8 octal soft box does not have any internal support and this causes it to sag a bit since the only thing supporting it is the velcro that closes the strap around the back collar where the soft box attaches to the flat. This could be fixed by adding some velcro to the softball and flash to provide some additional support. I have not tried to do this. You can expect to loose about 2 stops of light to the box, which is about normal since you are diffusing the light by bouncing it around the inside of the soft box. Having made these comments, this soft box does provide a very nice smooth (not harsh) light and creates a beautiful round catchlight in the subjects eyes.
