    Profoto 254704 reviews

    RFi 3.0 x 4.0' Softbox is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Profoto is not cheap but it is worth it I use this light modifier for lighting products and people. It is a quality piece of kit. Not cheap, but I think it is worth it as cheaper modifiers I have purchased have fallen apart. The construction is good, the materials are durable, and the light is delicious. I use this light with my Profoto D1 and Avenger boom and C stand. You need a quality stand to hold this modifier in place as it is big and has a lot of windage. I recommend this light modifier. I've bought the wrong thing, then later bought the right thing. Skip the wrong thing and do yourself a favor and buy this right out of the gate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light on the run You can't get any more portable than using two of these for field work. The key for me is using three b1s' one with a Profoto Zoom and 10 degree grid with the remaining two using 3'x4' Profoto soft boxes with 30 degree grids. These boxes setup and breakdown as easy as using an umbrella. I can literally setup in minutes before anybody knows I'm there with my subject.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Produces perfect light I have used this in portrait photography indoors and will use outdoors as conditions allow. In the short time I have had the product, it produces great light independently, or with complementary light/modifiers. I use the 1x4 with this 3x4. Great combination in clamshell or in key/fill setup. The fabric composition is much higher grade than other products. It is sufficiently lightweight, but durable. It is also very logical to assemble.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy an idiot.. you get the point! I love this thing. I own many a Profoto light shaping tool.. and this one works just as a soft box should.. except it is super quick to put together and tear down. I highly recommend the profoto softboxes. They are made well, and this size is perfect for lighting my seamless or pointing toward a subject.. just take a look at the portrait I took using it with my Mola Setti Beauty Dish. Stunning light and I love how intense but diffused the shadow edges are. I used the softbox right next to my setti to really wash her in light. (The used speedring I bought from B&H that was a demo item.. not so much! It was heavily used and quite beat up.. what they would consider an 8 or 8+. Annoying to say the least.)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, Soft, Light I use this with a profoto D1. It does what it's supposed to do. The construction seems good. The black part is a thick almost like canvas material. The interior is a beaded silver. It has one interior diffuser that attaches to the four corners via velcro. The outer diffuser attaches with velcro around the entire perimeter. It isn't the easiet thing to assemble and disassemble. There are four robust steel rods with a rounded aluminum tip that slides into a pocket in each corner of the front of the softbox. The other end has an aluminum shaft that goes into the port in the speedring. It doesn't come with a speedring, thats a seperate thing. They're both color coded. The best way that I've found to take it apart is to push the opposite corner into the floor a little bit and push the rod opposite that, which would be in your hand in towards the speedring while pulling the black pocket that the rod goes into the other way. It puts a little bend in the rod but it's the only way I've been able to take it apart. You'll figure it out. It all comes in a nice bag with a handle for transport/storage. It's expensive but you get what you pay for. I'll be getting another when they come back in stock.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great build quality Coming from shooting with mostly photoflex boxes before, this Profoto RFi box is a huge improvement! It's much sturdier, the fabric is thicker, the rods are stiffer and don't bend out of shape as much. The rods get much thicker (probably about a 1/2) up towards the speed ring connector right where all my old rods use to get bent out of shape. The color coded rods are a nice touch. The rods go through a tiny loop about 1/4 of the way from the top of the box, then through a velcro loop (that the inner diffuser attaches to), and then into the corner pockets. The corner pockets are only about an inch long though, so sometimes the rods will come out while you're building the box. Not really an issue if you put these together and leave them up in a studio, but I could see it getting annoying on location if you're constantly taking them apart and putting them together (it seems to be the biggest problem on the larger boxes like this and the 1x4 and 1x6 strips).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice big light The Profoto 3'x4' soft box provides nice even light and is a happy match with their B1 and D1 series of strobes. It requires a Speedring adapter to mount. The soft box comes with color-coded mounting rods per the Profoto mounting system, as well as a (typically Profoto) oversized carrying case. Thoughtfully, Profoto prints their logo on the case exterior as well as the size of the soft box in highly legible script, helping you find the right bag when you are looking for it. Last week I shot a series of abstract sculptures that were about 3' high and had rough surfaces, and ironically found the light from this soft box to be a bit too soft and too even. The sculptures needed harder light to create textural shadows. So, this box is too soft/big for some applications. It would work well for simulated window light, and would be ideal for portrait, boudoir, or wedding work, or studio tabletop work. It's probably a bit too large to be powered by a Speedlite outdoors although Profoto is happy to sell you a Speedlite mounting ring that fits. If you are shopping for a first modifier, I'd recommend using the smaller 3' Octabox as it gives round catchlights and can be set up to be a bit more directional and shaping. Used for people, this is ideally more of a 3/4 or full-body light. Its light tends to be very soft and wrap-around (flattening, not flattering) for head shots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth it! Finally made the jump to name brand soft boxes, and absolutely happy that I did! First off, the Profoto soft boxes are extremely well built, but the devil is always in the details. From the storage bag that actually allows you to repack the soft box, to the heavy duty rod ends that made assembly and disassembly a snap, this box is super easy to set-up and tear down. If you are looking to invest in a high quality product that doesn't disappoint, I would seriously consider the Profoto soft boxes!
