Westcott 266 overview

  • 1Description

The Westcott Pocketbox Mini - 6 x 7" is an ideal way to soften the output of your flash. The rectangular shape yields a wide beam spread which is great for portraiture. The PocketBox Mini sets up in seconds and is compatible with any shoe-type or small flash head, whether you're using it on or off camera. First and foremost, it eliminates the harsh shadows produced with direct flash, especially when the flash is the main source of light. Since the light is diffused, redeye is minimized and contrast softened. The PocketBox Mini features a silver interior to maximize your flash's output, as well as a removable diffusion panel for even output.

    Westcott 266 reviews

    Pocketbox Mini - 6 x 7" is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 65.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful for macro photography This is a good little softbox when you want to get out and about with macro photography, or just need a very portable flash diffuser. It does produce a softer light than bare flash when taking portraits, but it obviously cannot soften shadows like a big softbox can. Although it is supposed to be branded Wescott, what actually arrived was branded Pocket Box. It looks the same as the B&H website picture. I guess almost everything is made in China nowadays, so the actual brand name may not matter much. The construction quality seems adequate but I will certainly be careful with it. It is not designed for rough handling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right size for my needs! I am into hummingbird photography and I wanted to produce some natural-looking images of hummingbirds in flight so I got a set of these diffusers. I am pleased with the quality of these diffusers and my pictures looks way better now, so I am glad I made the little investment. I have to warn you though, that if you use this diffisers you will lose at least one stop of light, not a problem, just make your flashes fire at higher power.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfectly portable I now always have a soft box with me when I shoot. This fits in any camera bag (even just a backpack) that I may be carrying. It is tiny and weighs nothing. It attaches easily and securely to my Olympus FL600r flash. No, it is not a big soft box, and the bigger the box the better the light. So I am giving it four stars. But that is sort of unfair. The whole point is that it is small. It is easy and convenient to carry soft diffused light wherever I go. Mostly I use it with a TTL cord. So I get the flash off camera and diffused and use my left hand to hold it out and aim. Such a simple way to improve the lighting a lot when on the go.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good portable modifier - Great for on camera flash After reading other reviews here i bought this and i have to agree with all the good things i read here. So this is just to verify the quality of the product and say buy with confidence. Only reason for the 4 star and not 5 is that mounting hole on the back of the box is well designed (even rubberized) but it's not exactly a perfect but ok, the velcro works. It is pretty close to perfect - recommended portable modifier for sure. Also, it comes in a carrying/storage sleeve (another plus). P.S. if you are thinking between this one of the MAX version for on-camera flash, i recommend this one (the MINI).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Just Fine I hate harsh direct light. This pocketbox really helps soften the light. The only real question is how big do you need it. I was afraid that it would be too big and block the AF sensors on the flash but it's works fine so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I like to have my flash diffused and I found this with a reasonable price and go ahead and bouth it. No regrets so far. I like the design and functionality easy to store and it came with its own pouch. It doesnt collapse like some other types out there. It does make a difference cause it sofetens the light no more harsh light even when you direct this to their faces. Highly recommended. Oh BTW i use this for my canon 580EXII flashes it fits perfectly and snugly and doesnt look ugly.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, a bit cumbersome Works well for size and costs. Flash end of the soft box is considerably larger than 430 speedlite used, the sewn in strap is convenient but tends to make excess materials bunch on the flash when strapping down and pulling against anchor point. This also distorts the form of the soft box and can limit its effectiveness, I believe an external strap can be used and the soft box excess material can be evenly distributed on the flash body and equal pressure applied without twisting the box when pulling on the sewn in Velcro strap. Had some box formation and shape holding issues from being folded in shipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooths Out Flash Hot Spots I use this on my Nikon SB-600 flash and it works well. It fits securely around the flash head with an elastic band and Velcro fastener. I took two shots, one with the bare flash and the other with this product. It was clear the diffuser was doing its job by eliminating hard shadows from the subject. Is a bit challenging to get it on the flash square, but it sets up in a minute or two and fits nicely in my camera bag when collapsed. It comes with its own bag as well which is a bit larger than the Pocketbox Mini which made it too large for the pocket on my camera bag. Feels rugged. Lightweight.
