Morris 690665 Overview

  • 1Description

Turn your hand-held flash into a portable soft light with the Morris Portable Softbox which attaches to your flash unit (like the Vivitar 285 Metz handle-mount flash or any similar flash), and folds neatly for easy storage. The front panel measures 15x18" - big enough for a diffused, flattering light and small enough to use hand-held. It comes with a 4.5" wide mounting ring. The softbox comes with a stand mounting bracket with a shoe adapter for your flash.

    Morris 690665 Reviews

    Soft Box - 15x18" is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price! I purchased this item in order to work with my Nikon SB-800 flash and get some great, soft diffusion. I have so far been extremely pleased with this product--setup the first time was a little tricky for me but I was able to finally figure it out, and now setup/takedown takes only a couple of minutes. Because it's small it's easily portable so I can take this with me for exterior shots where I need some additional light. Even inside, it will give just the right amount of soft light and beautiful catch-lights in the eyes for portraits. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a portable lighting alternative when power sources aren't readily available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value I bought this for my SB-600; it offers a bit more power (because it's not reflected light) and directional light than my umbrella set-up. Easy and quick set-up. Includes an optional internal baffle to help diffuse the light which is not mentioned anywhere in the description. The speedring is made out of metal, not plastic like some others. The flash sticks out enough in the back of the box to allow Nikon's wireless creative lighting system to function without problems. The only (minor) adjustment I made was to put some electrical tape over the metal hot shoe for the flash. Also, note that it's not designed to have a grid attached to the front.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speedlight solution I completely agree with the review by Tanami. I had found a number of discussions of this softbox on the web. It not only lives up to its hype but they've improved it since most of those postings. The speedring is truly useful now. It has lots of adjustments to handle different portable speedlight sizes or to any other monolight you might want to use it on. The speedring can now be used to mount your strobe to any of your softboxes or even octoboxes. Its a quality ring as is the softbox. I was pleased with the second diffusion layer and the tough construction. Even though they're raised the price, the value has certainly increased commensurately.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great portable softbox I used this softbox mounted with and SB-800 speedlight (on the supplied cold shoe mount) for portable portrait work. This softbox provides even, soft light in a variety of settings (outdoor fill, indoor closeup soft light). The supplied mounting ring and cold shoe are also very convenient. It folds nicely in a storage bag (included) and I can carry everything along with a stand in a lightweight carry bag on any shoot. The material is sturdy with reflective silver on the interior to make the most of your light source. Yes, I would like a larger version for broader, softer spread for indoor work, but that is the only con that I can find with this product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok soft box I'm a location photographer and shoot daily. The Morris Soft Box is inexpensive and well designed but lacks the quality of the better known brands. The poles it comes with bend easily and are probably made of inferior metal than originally intended, some of the stitching is falling apart (after 1 week), and the unit smells oddly like a china town store. If you keep it set up in your studio or are on a tight budget you will probably like it. I will use it until it falls apart and then upgrade to a nicer box.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Buy Nice little soft box especially for the price. It isn't one I'd use for travel, however, since it is not the quickest to take apart or set up but as an extra studio box, it's great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product, great value. This is a well made product and a great bargain as well. The Morris softbox comes with a speed ring that you can use for your own studio lights without the need to purchase any extra accessories; great for those just getting started. This also comes with a hot shoe mount for your flash unit. I have been using this soft box with my Nikon SB-800 as a fill light source, a hair light, and as a main light in portrait work in an environment with some kind of additional or ambient lighting. This is also great to use hand-held with your shoe mount flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Twice as good for half the cost! If you search for hotshoe softbox here, you get the Lastolight. Which looks fine (really; nothing wrong with the Lastolight at all), but is 3 shorter and costs more than twice as much and has a PLASTIC speedring. Planned obsolescence is one thing, but charging more than twice as much for it? Then there's the Photoflex - also plastic-ringed, but only 1.5x the price (we're getting warmer!). I like Creative Light's stuff and was thinking about spending 1.5x more than this Morris box cost - for their speedring (alone!) - until I decided to go online and see what people were saying. What they were saying is that their SB800's were falling out of them. In the course of looking for a hotshoe speedring that people DID like as an alternative, I came across a site raving about this Morris box for use with Nikon speedlights. She obviously knew how to shoot, so her opinion had weight, but her link - to here (B&H) - said the product was no longer in stock. Figures. But I clicked anyway, and lo! and behold! So I bought it.I was FLOORED by three things: 1. ....2. The quality, ease of use and completeness of this set. 3. The out-of-some-guy's garage look and feel to Morris Co's web site, packaging and labels. THEY WERE BOUGHT BY SPEEDOTRON IN 1985!!!!! But everything else on their site looks like cat show photographers' gear. I dunno. Maybe they got this one right by accident. But it's right on: aluminum universal speedring, 2 diffusers, metal rods, an excellent, rugged flat case. For less than CL's Speedring. By HALF! Maybe that's why it's buried on this site - to give the competition a fighting chance?The only criticism I have of the whole rig is with one of the four, well-made, universal speed ring mounting bolts. You don't need any of them if you are using a hotshoe mount, & Nikon's SC-28 synch chord meshes as you would expect... Three of the four bolts are removable. But the one long one is riveted to its pad. What I did was just backed it out until the grooved tip of the bolt - cut to hold the rivets and spin - just snapped off. If ever I regret the decision, I can just cut a new groove in the end of the bolt, juts like they did when it was made. The four bolts and their hardware weigh over a pound(!) so if you are planning on lugging this at a weddings or events and aren't using the universe, get rid of the universal bolts.Other than that minor criticism - it's made so well that it's heavy! - I have only compliments.
