Aputure Lantern Reviews
Excellent for diffused light
Excellent to create very diffused, soft shadows, it could easily be used as a key light or a fill light. I use it for product photography and portraits along with the Amaran 60x
Reasonably effective; hard to attach
It is quite cumbersome to attach this thing to a light. You have to reach in to the structure portion in order to get the mount done. And even then there is no click to tell you it is mounted properly. Mounting it is TWO STARS. The contraption itself is reasonably effective and that is why a THREE STAR total.
EXCELLENT simple softbox with great results
I have been looking for a simple softbox that is easy to set up and achieves a beautiful look. This is so easy to set up and break down, fits great on the bowens mount and can be used with additional lights or all by itself. I love it!
Aputure Lantern Softbox
Awesome equipment. Easy to assemble. Great quality. Thanks B&H for your fast service
SUPER SOFT & SIMPLE.
Works great. The velcro will probably be a little short from fully connecting around the fixture. But all in all, for the price it's great. I'm using it with the Amaron 200d, and it works well.
Perfect for YouTube
Perfect Softbox for small / tight spaces.
Easy to use, great results
After two weeks of trying the Lantern out in different situations, I'm more than happy with my purchase. Really, it's a astounding value when other popular modifiers can be over $200. It's been good for a two-person podcast setup and when i need nice even light for a macro tutorial setup.
Great diffusion and disperses the light well
It's a nice softbox. Now I just need a brighter light. My brightest light is a 150. This will probably be much better with a 300 or more.
