When doing close-up photography and you need additional soft lighting, what can you use. There are a number of products made but among the best is the Vello Mini Softbox! It slides over your flash and does exactly what it says it will do. Provides a soft light without adding any weight or combersome to your camera.

I haven't had to many chances to use this, but the few times I have it put out decent results. The biggest complaint I have it that the softbox doesn't have a strap around the back to hold the box in place. Right now it's ok since it's brand new, but I can fore see the box slipping off in the future. Personally I'd just get the bounce dome and save the [$] you'd spend on this for an umbrella kit for your flash.

I very handy softbox for flash.

By PhotoFrank

Comments about Vello Mini Softbox:

This is one handy little softbox that is well made and folds flat to fit just about anywhere. Works like a charm and is very well suited to either direct flash or bounce by removing or using the front closure.

Soft Illumination

By NorCalPhoto

Comments about Vello Mini Softbox:

In terms of quality of light, ease of use, stability and cost, the Vello Mini Softbox performs. Used most recently for portrait and bridal work, it creates lovely soft light, especially in filtered situations. Nice improvement over my previous softbox; I especially like its size and the fact that it does not protrude the way many other similar products do. It is easy to attach and it stays put...two problems I have had with other softboxes. Overall, a super, yet simple choice in softboxes.

Good value, but could attach better

Comments about Vello Mini Softbox:

I use these for closeups of small critters. They do the trip, but would benefit with velcro to reinforce the elastic band that holds the softbox on the speedlight.
