    Softens light a little

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 15, 2014

    Great for the price! Love these things

    0 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. :) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 20, 2014

    I would recommend them.

    0 3/5 Gregory K. - 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) These are OK. They velcro on and don't seem to attach well...they also tend to cause the Barn Doors to close and it is difficult to move them back out once the soft box is on. However, they help a LOT with the glare from these lights and they make you look more professional as well. I would recommend them...just be aware they are a little clunky to use. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 15, 2014
