    Shallow Softbox 54 x 72" (137 x 182.2 cm) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works and plays well with Spiderlites. I recently did a shoot with a model and a motorcycle. It was a challenge to light as I use Westcott Spiderlites and 50 watt CFL bulbs. I called B&H for advice and they said get some big light modifiers or some strobes. I ended up using the 7' parabolic umbrella for main and this 72 soft box for fill - both with TD6 lights. This combo works well for large subjects - though I still had a 1/80 sec, f5.6 @ISO800 exposure with the main light 4' from the subject. I have 3 Westcott shallow soft boxes now and really like them. They are easy to set up - take down and make efficient use of the the light offered by my Spiderlites.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Softbox It is very large but still compact enough to be easily managed. It is relatively (as compared to the deeper version, which I also own) light weight and easy to manipulate. Assembly is easier.It requires less space and my stands hold it quite well - making adjustments to position easier. I bought one of these and liked it so well that I immediately purchased another.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my go-to softbox This thing is perfect for location video shooting: like all of Westcott's stuff, it's really well made. And the depth lets me use it in locations where a regular softbox just won't fit. So happy with it, I bought three (!): two of the 54x72s and one of the 36x48. I can light whole rooms with a beautiful, directional, wrapping window light. Also, I found a cost-effective soft grid that works great. In my opinion, just about the perfect soft source.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic SHALLOW Softbox! I use this softbox with my Spiderlite TD6 and it definitely allows me the flexibility to shoot in spaces previously not considered with a softbox of this size. Front diffusion fabric is also thinner, allowing for more light to the subject. I'm very happy with the softbox!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT I've wanted this size soft box for quite a while, but have a home studio, so I was concerned about the size. A) The shallow aspect makes it fit beautiful, and B) the size of the soft box is just amazing! The quality is top notch too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for my studio Needed some more room and had another large softbox that took up way too much room. Bought this - from the first photo I took I knew this was a keeper. Light weight, good light, decent price. Would have like to have the fabric set back a little from the opening to control light to the sides, but oveall a great deal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is one big soft softbox I have only had time to shoot a couple of shots with this, but so far I find it sturdy enough for such a large item.� The light is wonderful- large enough to use as a high key background as well as provide wrap around full body key light.
