    Lastolite LL LS2630 reviews

    Hotrod Strip Softbox (12 x 48") is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Product but.... So I got this as a light weight solution to on-location protraits and it does a wonderful job; the light is soft and even. Of course, being collapsable it's super easy to transport around. All in all its a solid well built product. But (and here is where I dinged it a star) I had a shoot with very limited space and had to do some flag trickery to contain the light. So I thought I'd get a grid for it, and that's when I discovered Lasolite does not offer a grid for this product. In my eyes that keeps it from being a complete solution.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice size strip box but terrible design! I saw one of these already put together and got to try it out.. It in a nice strip box..but...(a big but...) The instructions have 37 steps to put it together.. grrrr.. and you have to slide rods into pockets .. one slip and you will puncture the fabric. I actually never got it together so it was tight enough around the lollipop bracket so that it didn't slip off. a Google search didn't offer any other help. Back it went! and got a Wescott Rapidbox Strip. I put that together in 3 mins.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light...need grid I use is mainly with portrait photography indoors and love the light that it gives. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that Lastolite do not produce a grid for this or their Hotrod Octa Softbox, which limits it's full use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good box but needs bit of improvement Overall I found this product to be fairly well designed. I had one of the these and bought a second one to use in product, commercial and headshot photography. I'm a fan of most Lastolite products and do like this one. Two improvements would be a bit heavier box material (seems really thin and would tear too easily) and definitely the speedring design. I found that the two screws never really work smoothly and the ring is either too tight or too loose. Adjusting is a bit of a pain. Otherwise I am pretty happy with this strip box and give it 4 out of 5.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding!!! I love it, goes togother just like the Lastolite Octa, just quicker as this only has 4 rods instead of, well 8. Beautiful, soft, enlongated light from a speedlite. I just want another one to have even, symetrical lighting coming from both sides. Great for rim lights, hair lights, even use to light products.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Qualit-Works well I use this product to backlight my greenscreen backgounds. It is great for that and makes it possible to use an sb900 in place of larger strobes. The only part that is negative is the building of it everytime I move to a new location. But it does exactly what I purchased it for.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serves it's purpose Nice light, I used it for a hair light syncing my speed light with my strobes. No issues with the soft box at all - however it is a complete pain in the neck to assemble/reassemble. Every freaking time. Ugh.
