Lastolite LL LS2730PZ Overview

  • 1Description

The Lastolite Ezybox II Switch Large is a lightweight light-shaping tool that adds a flattering, low contrast quality of light to studio, battery-powered and shoe-mount flashes. The Switch neatly solves the problem of choosing between square and rectangular formats. With the Switch you have them both in one softbox. Measuring at the front diffuser you start with a 35 x 35" square - a good size for head and shoulder portraiture. A simple zipper narrows the Ezybox to 35 x 17" for use as an accent light or for reflective objects such as glassware.

The Ezybox Switch has removable interior and exterior diffusers that can be used in any combination or not at all depending on your subject and desired effect. With both inner baffle and front diffuser in use there is a 2.0 stop reduction in output. Please note that the Ezybox requires separate purchase of a speed ring for use.

    Lastolite LL LS2730PZ Reviews

    Ezybox II Switch Large (35 x 17" / 35 x 35") is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big soft light that strips by a zip! Lastolite's latest softbox offering seems to be one of a kind, even without the help of Joe McNally. The Ezybox II Switch offers something quite different than other boxes: the ability to switch (hence the name) from a large 35 square box to a 35 x 17 strip. The change is made simply and easily with just a quick pull of a zipper and switching two longer support rods for shorter ones (both sets are included). Big soft main light one moment, soft directional rim or fill the next. Studio photographers well versed in the advantages and disadvantages of setting up wedge shaped and umbrella type boxes will find this refreshingly different. Set up is easier than fumbling with numerous support rods, but perhaps not as quick as utilzing the umbrella swivel. There are only two simple very durable rods to insert into well stitched fabric pockets, but this is done on the OUTSIDE of the box, and the tradeoff is extreme usability, with the the purchase, of course, of the correct accessories. You'll need a speedlight bracket if you are taking advantage of the portability factor, or a speedring adapter if you are using studio strobes. The speedlight bracket is cool enough to warrant it's own review. It's quick to setup if are a visual learner and can decipher the textless instruction brochure, and even with my Illinois public school education I figured it out in just a few minutes. The Lastolite is super well constructed, it even has professional texture, as well as a durability that is reassuring, while still be lightweight enough to handle without too many cuss words. Two layers of diffusion soften your light with very little hotspot, remarkable since you are firing directly throgh the diffusion and not back into the box, and the light is gorgeous and punchy with less wrap as the monstrous Apollo 50, but not as contrasty as a smaller 28 box or 24 Cheetah. You'll get 4 diffusors in the purchase, two for the large unzipped box and two for the strip. The quality of the velcro is outstanding. Removing the diffusors from the velcro lining while a 19 month old is sleeping will elict deadly looks from spouses as the riiiiip reverberates through the house. I love this box - it is perfect for headshots and I've used it to light a single person head to toe, although I would go to a larger light shaper for a group. Shortcomings are centered around it's newness on the market. Descriptions indicate their are optional grids, yet trying to find them is quite daunting. I'm told they have been released in the US, but they do not appear on B&H, at least as their own purchasable items. Suggested pricing on the grids is shocking -even for the narrow grid it is more than half the cost of the box itself. And remember, you may have to purchase two grids if you want one for each of the Switches' uses. Whoa. Similarly, if you rock well known studio flashes: Bowens, Elinchrom, Hensel, Profoto, speedring adapters are intuitive, but if you are sporting Alienbees, Genesis, or other budget strobes, information as to which ring to purchase is not so forthcoming. I've received 3 different answers, and finally had to go to the manufacturer of my light itself. That beings said, it's probably where I should have went in the first place. The Lastolite Ezybox II Switch produces beautiful soft light with a hint of punch, goes big to narrow before your client even finishes a swig of diet pepsi,is durable, lightweight, quality constructed, unique,and brand spanking new. What more can photographers ask for? Well, maybe a fatter wallet. Michael Infinity Photographic Images Phoenix, Arizona

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Modifier Fast setup. You can pull the two diffusers out and get great specular light. As a strip light it excels. You can get adapters for speedlites and strobes.

    question

    Hey there! I don't understand if it supports hot shoe flashes or you have to buy an adapter. I have the Speedlite 430 EX II and I'll be buying a Yongnuo 560. Do I need a separate accesorie to make this work with my speedlites?Thanks!Luigi

    You'll need the Speedlight Bracket to be able to mount your hot-shoe flashes. The speedring on the back of the softbox does have a single coldshoe on it but has no means of mounting the softbox to a stand (mostly designed for use with larger flashes/monoblocks). The Speedlight Bracket clips onto the speedring and has space for two units (comes with a split sync lead too). It also has a mounting point for using the softbox on a lightstand and lets you adjust the rotation of the softbox.

    question

    Will this work with the bracket & speedring from my ezybox hot shoe softbox kit 24 x24 ?
    Asked by: Martha B.
    The EzyBox Hostshoe bracket and speedring will NOT work with the EzyBox II product line. The opening at the rear of the EzyBox II products is much larger in order to accommodate two speed lights and a larger number of flash heads. The EzyBox II products include a Rear Support Ring for use with the optional Lastolite Ezybox II Speedlight Bracket B&H # LASLBEZB2 MFR # LL LS2701 or 6 different optional speed rings.
