Godox SB-NBM OCTA140 Reviews
Huge soft light
This is a great box. Very huge. Consistent with color and softness.
You get what you pay for
I have been a working professional in the photo/video industries for over 10 years. build is so tight that it ripped during disassembly on the first night. You get what you pay for.
Very solid and big
This is a very solid product. This is is the second one of these I purchased because the price and quality is great. You will need to learn to take it down, and there is a bit of a break in moment the first couple of times you put it together. There is a trick to taking it down because of how tight all of the components fit together. But once you learn how, it's a breeze.
Honestly can't beat the value proposition of this octa. Most important light quality is excellent with my SL150wii LED light. Super soft, and not unwieldy like some supposed parabolic octas. Only negative, as countless others have pointed out, is the difficulty of disassembly. Rods are really in there solid. As a mobile softbox, it's a 1, but for studio use, perfectly serviceable. Honestly don't pay 4~5X for others if you're just going to leave it up!
Awful to build and tear down
This soft box is fine if you never want to break it down. It's extremely hard to build and break down. I ended up just leaving mine built all the time and traveling with it in my car built.
Nice large source
It is long to set up and hard to disassemble because of the unnecessary high tension on the rods. In film, Chimera soft boxes include 1/4, 1/2 and full diffusion, whereas this one doesn’t; there’s a middle diffuser and a half diffusion in front. But that’s what probably expected in the photo world and for the price it’s all good. If you’re hesitating between sizes, go for the larger. It’s not much deeper than the medium one.
Perfect for Large Group Shots and Multi Light Sources
I chose the large softboxes to take a large group shot of 70 skaters on the ice. I needed portability and something compatible with Godox AD600 flash heads. The price point works for me because I rent the flash heads when needed. I can still use these softboxes with my 550EX Speedlites as well. The assembly is straightforward but requires complete breakdown to transport in small vehicles. They have some weight to them so robust C-stands and/sand bags are recommended. They come with two layers of diffusion and an egg crate attachment. Everything folds up in a simple bag, which is provided.
This light box created exactly what I needed. I'm shooting full body in a fairly small room and needed to keep the light from projecting shadows on the walls. Because of the diffusion, this causes the light to wrap around the subject beautifully without creating shadows. It was not difficult to put together.
