FotodioX Ez-Pro overview

  • 1Description

Able to be opened up like an umbrella, the 12 x 56" EZ-Pro Strip Softbox from Fotodiox will make set up and tear down much simpler. Able to soften and diffuse light and create beautiful long catchlights, the strip softbox is a classic modifier both in studio and on location, and this model features a heat-resistant design and sealable venting to support a variety of different types of fixtures. It uses a silver interior to maximize output and features both an inner baffle and front diffuser to produce an even quality of light, and these do not need to be removed for storage. Another customizable advantage of this softbox is the inclusion of an accessory that can transform your box into a collapsible beauty dish. This accessory can also help reduce hot spots when using a diffuser. Users can pick up an optional fabric grid, as well, to control light spill. This model comes with a rotating speed ring with locking thumbscrew which features an insert that is compatible with most shoe-mounted flashes.

    FotodioX Ez-Pro reviews

    EZ-Pro Strip Softbox (12 x 56", Speedlight Speed Ring) is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from If the price looks too good to be true, it probably is. I had to send it back before I even got to use it. Upon setting it up for the first time, the metal ring in the middle of the internal diffuser (which allows the umbrella-style pole to pass through the middle) popped right out of the fabric. Strike 1. The beauty dish insert is (really cheap) plastic, not metal, and wouldn't even fit onto the pole, rendering it unusable. Strike 2. The rest of the materials (the soft box itself, shoe mount, etc) seem decent for the price but aren't what I would consider highly durable, which betrays the primary selling point of this model: it's a Rapid Box-style design, which makes it much easier to set up / break down, but it isn't constructed well enough to be constantly used in this fashion. It would probably be fine in a home studio where you set it up once and just move it around (as long as you're careful setting it up the first time), but if that's the use case then you might as well just get a traditional soft box with better materials for a similar price. Strike 3. Other things I noticed: -The front diffuser is just a hair too short for full coverage. You can get it to attach but it requires pulling the top and bottom edges inward, which creates tension on the velcro and makes it hard to keep it together. -The width is only 12" if you put something inside to hold the edges out, otherwise it's more like 10.5". -You need a screwdriver to attach the speedlight ring, which means that once it's on it isn't quickly removable for transportation. -It's fairly easy to figure out but if you do have any questions you're out of luck, because there is no documentation included and their website isn't very helpful. Even half of the product pictures shown here aren't even for this model, they're for the Octa version. The one positive thing I can say about it is at least they included all of the accessories you might need with this kit, unlike Westcott where you have to buy everything separately (deflector plate, speedlite insert for the RB Switch, etc) for a much higher cost. I really wanted to like this but in the end there were just too many details that added up to a half-baked product. I sent it back and cancelled my order for the 32x48 version in favor of the (much more expensive) Westcott Rapid Box Switch models.
