The softbox has a silver interior lining that increases contrast, and the white diffuser front creates a soft diffused light with soft shadows. It fits most shoe mounted flash units, and is held in place with the built-in elastic band. You can also use it without the diffuser front for a bare bulb effect. The softbox folds flat to conveniently fit in your gear bag.

    Mini Softbox is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 253.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft Box in My Pocket. This is a great little modifier for compact flash units like the Canon 270EX, the Nikon SB400; I use it on my Sunpak RD2000. It will even add a great softbox-like quality to midsize flashes like the Canon 430EX II, It should be a great performer for any flash you might use with a Micro Four Thirds system while still retaining the compact form factor. Build quality is very nice, not like a Lumiquest modifiers, which are vinyl and prone to split. The front diffuser is hinged and connected with velcro closures so it can be used as an intensifier or to add gels. Snugs on to the flash with elastic, no velcro tabs or other connectors to mess with.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the little cost! This little thing is so simple. I think it has more of an amateur application than the pros, as my instructor would likely say it is just wasting batteries in my SB-600, but it prevent me from having to perfectly predict the exact amount of flash power to set. When I am walking around a room with some people closer to me than others, this little handy item makes the flash much more forgiving, offering light but not harsh light on faces. It looks a bit silly on an already obtrusive flash unit on a big camera but who cares when it improves my pictures! Also worth keeping in a camera bag since it folds flat!Worth every penny and it isn't that many pennies!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft Illumination In terms of quality of light, ease of use, stability and cost, the Vello Mini Softbox performs. Used most recently for portrait and bridal work, it creates lovely soft light, especially in filtered situations. Nice improvement over my previous softbox; I especially like its size and the fact that it does not protrude the way many other similar products do. It is easy to attach and it stays put...two problems I have had with other softboxes. Overall, a super, yet simple choice in softboxes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Close-up Lighting Tool When doing close-up photography and you need additional soft lighting, what can you use. There are a number of products made but among the best is the Vello Mini Softbox! It slides over your flash and does exactly what it says it will do. Provides a soft light without adding any weight or combersome to your camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty much what you expect I've done a lot of tests with and without and with the flash's built in diffuser. It's an improvement, but no a miraculous one. I do bug macros and need to diffuse the light to keep the exoskeleton's from being too sparkly, and this helps. A slightly bigger one might be better still. But it's cheap, folds up small, and improves the quality, so it's fine. A little hard to get on with the elastic opening as opposed to some kind of velcro, but stays on well once it's one.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compact, good for bouncing, wish it was larger. I really like that I can fit this diffuser in a side pocket of my bag when folded. It does a nice job of spreading light when bounced off a ceiling but I wouldn't get too close and use it head on for portraits at events. I solved the sagging issue by putting a heavy duty rubber band around my Canon Speedlight and then wrapping that around the top back fabric portion of the diffuser. I think I will try the medium size also. Seems reviewers found the large is too much for on-camera and this is too small. maybe I'll be like Goldilocks and find the medium just right.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from mini is better than none This little soft box does exactly what you would expect, except stay in place. It diffuses, packs easily, flips open to expose the silver backing and slides around. I have tried it on flashes of two different sizes and shapes and it just doesn't want to stay put. It slides and droops downward due to its own weight and is a real pest. I would recommend a diffusion dome that clicks in place instead if flat packing and and an exsposed silver lining isn't high on the priority list.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speed light accessory Great device, better then any bounce system. Other method is to bounce off walls when appropriate.
