Is it this softbox too heavy to use over the camera with out a stand ?
Asked by: ramon h.
No, the soft box it not that heavy, but it does sag down because the method of attaching it to the flash allows it to slip. The other issue I've had with it is the blocking of the iTTL sensor on the flash if you are shooting on camera. You will be need to purchase a remote sensor for you flash and place the sensor on the camera with the flash / softbox combo on the top of a flash bracket. You also need to plan on losing 2 stops of light up close and don't plan to use it beyond about 8 feet.

I shot with a DSLR, what size do I get?
Asked by: Anonymous
I chose a medium size for portability since everything I need must fit into my camera bag. I use it to soften the flash when shooting people at parties ie. snapshots etc.

there are small, medium, and large sizes.I intend to get the bigger sized but worried if it may block the sensor of the camera and/or block the lens, if this is mounted directly on the camera instead of a stand. Question: what the large sized among all of these that can work with the flash that is on the camera directly? Thanks much!

If you're talking about the popup on-camera flash then probably no.
