Vello FD-1520 overview

  • 1Description

Reduce the harshness of your on-camera flash unit and soften shadows by equipping it with this large Octa Softbox for Portable Flash from Vello, which measures 12" in diameter. This convenient modifier produces a soft, almost wrap-around quality of light that is useful in a wide variety of situations, such portraiture, weddings, food, and more. Along with this, the octagonal shape will produce circular catchlights that are very pleasing to the eyes. It also features a foldable inner diffuser for further softening of the light and a reflective silver interior that evenly distributes light while maintaining maximum light output.

Setting up the softbox is simple with an integrated elastic strap with a touch tab fastener that secures around the flash head. Also, it has a strap loop and rubberized mounting tabs that will ensure that the softbox remains securely attached. When not in use, the modifier will fold down flat, and a zippered carrying case is included for travel and storage.

    Vello FD-1520 reviews

    Octa Softbox for Portable Flash (Large, 12") is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Exactly what I was looking for. Inexpensive, effective, and portable. This would have gotten 5 stars if the opening for the flash-head had the ability to expand/contract around various size flash heads. It is a bit loose, even with the velcro strap. I supplemented with a rubber-band.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay flash diffuser Diffusion is only so-so. Light is still pretty harsh, but it's certainly better than nothing. Product has a professional look. It's pretty big, so you probably need to have your flash on a bracket (or somewhere other than the camera's hot shoe). It's not too hard to make a softbox with softer light, but they don't usually have this professional look and they're not usually this portable/collapsible. I ended up attaching additional Velcro to this and my flashgun to get it to stay in place better.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice idea, poor execution I've purchased several small Vello soft boxes for use on macro flash. The rectangular ones work quite well but sometimes give a rectangular spot on the eyes of insects. I thought that an octagonal soft box would work better. This softball seemed like it would be just the thing. Unfortunately, it should have been folded up like origami but was basically just crunched up to fit in a box. Lots of irregular creases and folds but this thing requires the stiff fabric and folds to hold its shape. Had to lots of manipulation to get the box to stay open. All that was lost when I tried to fold it back up. This one is a disappointment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bulky but light. Excellent for the price, it's very lightweight and diffuses light beautifully. However, it's enormous for a speedlite. Just be aware! Setting up the internal diffuser really helps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! Super easy to use, simple way to soften the light from your flash and increase the light source. Weighs next to nothing, so you can take it anywhere.
