Vello Octa Softbox for Portable Flash (Large, 12") - will this fit a Godox V1 speedlight? The V1 has a round head.
Asked by: Adam
To answer your question yes it will fit any portable flash. But I don't recommend buying it, I actually threw mine away. There are no wires or anything to keep it rigid and it's just floppy and unusable. A $5 snap-on diffuser will honestly give you better quality and I would start there but If you want to step up, I would go for a glow deep parabolic. you can usually find one for a good price but you will need a Bowens to standard flash adapter. It comes down to a case of "buy once cry once", you can probably get the whole paradolic set and flash adapter for about 60 bucks shipped and you will impress yourself all day long.

Asked by: William
The Vello Octa Softbox for Portable Flash (Large, 12") is a generic softbox. It will work with most standard shape speedlights like most of the Flashpoint brand. It does not fit most round speedlight designs.

question

Hi, will this fit Sony HVL-F43M ?
Asked by: John
It's my opinion that the short swivel head on the Sony will make the Softbox unstable.

question

A consistent failing of similar designs (re-branded under countless names) is that 3-4cm of the outer edge is unable to be lit because the inward taper at the large end of the funnel is too aggressive (basically the inner reflector is nearly touching the diffusor). Is this design appreciably more bowl-shaped such that this would be alleviated?
Asked by: Tim N.
I inserted wire into the seams to stiffen the 'funnel', but there remains some tapering light fall-off toward the edges, but I can't quantify in cm or f-stop.

question

Does it fit with YN686EX-RT Speedlite?
Asked by: Claudia R.
Probably. I have an SB-600 which is a smaller flash and the opening is way too big. I modified it to make it work.
