About this book
Shooting with any kind of flash - whether it's a simple light on your camera, a remotely-triggered unit, or a complete studio setup - completely changes the photographic experience. No longer do you simply need to be aware of light; now you need to know how to shape it to your own ends. The Flash Photography Field Guide, small enough to be taken on the most arduous shoot, will show you exactly how to do this, whether you're shooting models in a studio, live sports events, or something as personal and special as your friend's wedding. This book covers the details of setting up and using modern TTL flash systems, and the creative and technical choices you'll come across, from syncing the flash with the camera to modifying the quality of the light.

    Provides excellent light, packs small, and is extremely well made and durable

    Customer Video Review Length:: 2:34 MinsI was very happy when I received this softbox, along with another Fotodiox softbox which I will be reviewing separately, as a gift. It provides excellent light, packs very flat, and is extremely well made and durable. Best part is, it's huge. With a 400 Watt studio light I can light whole people with that excellent, wraparound light that you get from a softbox. And, since it is very transportable I can take it this outstanding modifier wherever I go. It's like having portable sunlight!My only "issue" was that it took a bit longer to set up than I would like. The annoyance is you need to feed eight metal rods into the adapter and they can get jumbled up as you are trying to do that. At home it's not that big an issue but if I'm setting up in front of someone the last thing I want them to see is me wrestling with equipment. Fortunately I was able to come up with a simple and inexpensive fix that allows me to go from bag to completely set up... 5/5 Bob Tobias (Arlington, VA USA) - See all my reviews, May 21, 2012

    Great big softbox. Hard set up. Good results.

    Customer Video Review Length:: 4:20 MinsRecently, I've been trying to find ways to improve my photography at my home studio. In the past, I used my new Alien Bee 800 with either a shoot-through or a reflective umbrella. The results were not too good using a white wall as a background. Hard shadows affected the composition of the portrait and faces always ended up a bit shiny. So I decided to invest in a good but affordable softbox. I went to Amazon and decided on the Fotodiox Pro 48" Octagon Softbox based on good reviews and price (only $50).As usual, after buying a new piece of equipment or accessory, I recorded a video review of the product so other potential buyers can benefit from it. I had to split my videos into two parts due to length. You can find both of them in my youtube channel. I posted part 2 here in Amazon because it includes the review section.Let's start with the materials.

    48" Fotodiox Octobox

    I'm writing this review after 3 months of use and it's still the best bang for your buck you can get. The quality was a lot better than I expected. The material is very strong and has a nice inner diffuser. Although I don't like the connections they use for the inner diffuser, I'll probably replace those clips. It doesn't come with instructions, but it doesn't take an engineering degree to understand exactly how it works. I wonder if these people also have problems using common umbrellas. It is a little heavy paired with my Alien Bee 800 so a medium duty light stand is a must. Anyone complaining about this deal needs to take their $35 bucks back and go put it towards a $1000 Elinchrom Octobox. I see the potential for poking the rods through the seams, but if you don't act like the Hulk I'm sure I'll be fine and even if you do it's an easy fix. I gave it 5 stars because I didn't buy a Kia and expect it to be a Mercedes, however there are still millions of happy Kia owners. Buy it... 5/5 Charles Edward - See all my reviews This review is from: Fotodiox Pro Octagon Softbox 48" with Speedring for Alien Bees Strobe Light B400, B800, B1600 (Electronics) I'm writing this review after 3 months of use and it's still the best bang for your buck you can get.

    Softens light a little

    3/5 peter - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ILED Softbox Diffuser for 508 Portable Dimmable LED Video Panel Lights (Electronics) Does not soften the light nearly as much as I'd hoped. Shadows are still quite hard edged. OK I guess if you're using the light mounted on the camera because the diffuser is a manageable size. The problem is that the surface area of the diffuser panel is only slightly larger and only a few inches away from the light.When using the light on a stand in a studio or on location I found a much better option to be a $15, 30" translucent shoot-through umbrella that spreads and softens the light from my 508 LED much more effectively than this little diffuser. This requires an inexpensive umbrella light stand attachment. The translucent umbrella yields a cheap solution for beautiful wrap-around light for portraits and video interviews with a 508 LED.

    Price is only real downfall

    3/5 BM - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ILED Softbox Diffuser for 508 Portable Dimmable LED Video Panel Lights (Electronics) I'm only giving this product 3 stars for the price. It feels cheaply made and not as sturdy as if hoped it could be. For that I feel the price was a bit steep. I like that it comes with a sleeve and that it it portable. The Velcro straps help secure the softbox to my LED however I could see it getting a bit out of control with the adjustment of the light. In my opinion, worth a look if you are looking to diffuse the harshness of your LED... Any diffusion is better than straight up sourcey unless that's the look you are going for. it would have been nice if there was an insert in front for gels, but you can always work around that.

    Great for the price! Love these things

    5/5 jasonrae - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ILED Softbox Diffuser for 508 Portable Dimmable LED Video Panel Lights (Electronics) So I bought these super expensive Dracast led500 lights and when I went to get a soft box for them Dracast wanted to sell me these 279 dollar Chamera boxes. I thought I might as well give these a try before spending yet another 500 bucks on soft boxes and they worked perfect... it takes a bit of adjusting but after about a min or so they work great. For the price they flat out blow those other boxes out of the water.I would buy these for sure if your using any kind of led500 light panels. I will say the white material is not quite as white as I would want it to be but thats being super picky, it diffuses light enough. :) Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 20, 2014
