Quickly create a soft, diffused light with your on-camera flash by using the 8 x 12" FlexFrame Softbox for Portable Flash from Vello. By using a durable fiberglass frame, users just unfold and lock in the jointed rods to have the softbox ready to go. Along with this, it has a removable front diffuser that dramatically reduces the harshness of the flash and softens shadows. For even distribution of light with minimal loss, the interior is a reflective silver, which can also be used as a standard reflector when the front diffuser is removed. Attachment is simple with a touch-fastener cinch strap that fits most flash heads and mounting tabs on the softbox that attach to the strap. Additionally, it comes with a drawstring carrying case.

    FlexFrame Softbox for Portable Flash (8 x 12") is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would like to see a change in this product's design. This product does a fine job of what it is expected to do - help soften the lighting. Placing the softbox over the speedlight and dismounting it however is difficult at best. A velcro strap with rubber backing is placed around the head of the speedlight to which the hard plastic velcro tabs of the softbox are to be attached. There is little flexibility with the tabs and, velcro being velcro, it grabs hold before the softbox is in position and the tabs must be worked into position. A little more flexibility in the tabs would be helpful. An acquaintance broke one of the tabs in dismounting the softbox.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good and Easy to use I am by no means a professional photographer, and even so the softbox was easy to use for great results. It requires very little set up and is something I throw in my bag to always have as an extra tool. It takes no more than 30 seconds to strap onto a flash and use with great results. I would recommend for any on the go photography kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best SoftBox hands down I used this little gem in a photo shoot, macro photography, product reviews, with a group of kids on a rugby team. This small unit it light, easy to assemble and use. You can take it anywhere and is the real deal with the ability to go with you every where and use on the spot. The FlexFrame Softbox by Vello works like a charm and is a permanent part of my go every where kit. Steve Baslow DSLR Photographers - Portland Or

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great inexpensive solution This is a fabulous solution to fill-flash for outdoor portraits. Small and light to carry around. Sets up easily. It would have received 5-stars if it would not have hung down in front of the lens just a little. A long lens would solve this or just a little gaffers tape. Not a big deal.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good idea but not quite right I've been looking for simple, affordable, compact devices to shape the light from my Speedlites. This item is a nice size and has good build quality for what it is. The main drawback is how it connects to the flash. The connection requires more fiddling than I'd like to do, and the design prevents one from using a diffuser dome on the flash to add a second level of diffusion. Overall, this is not bad item, but it's not quite right in it's design.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good softbox, hard to mount. I've enjoyed using these little softboxes on my speedlights. They do a good job of creating a bit of a larger light source while adding in good diffusion. I've mainly used them for off camera purposes, but you can use them on-camera as well if you're using a long lens and don't mind looking a little dorky. But so far people don't mind the photographer looking a little dorky so long as they get good pictures. The one gripe I have with these things is that it's difficult to get them to mount well. You first have to put a strip of velcro on the speedlight - which is easy! It attaches and is held in place with a rubbarized underside, which is easily removable and doesn't leave any residue on your light. BUT - when the tricky part is mounting the actual diffusion portion onto the speedlight. Since it's all velcro around the light, the fixtures keep catching and you have to push and pull for a minute or two to finally get it in place without it being all crooked. But once mounted, these things are great. When you're all done, they collapse very nicely and fit in any decent camera bag without taking up much room at all. Enjoy!
