Gorgeous light, it was much lighter than I expected which my assistant loves.
Fantastic bag, holds most of what I need to go on location. Clearly background stands and material would be too much for this bag, but it does hold soft boxes, light modifiers like barn doors, reflectors and snoot, plus strobes and such. Great quality, and with the wheels easy to maneuver around.
I recently purchased two 24 X 36 Rapid Pro Softboxes to replace non-rapid pro models. What a difference!!! The ease of set up was absolutely amazing. I could not ask for anything faster or more convenient. Would I buy again No question!! You should have one or two of these in your set up!!
The construction of the unit is good having the inside as silver material with an inner and outer diffuser to provide as much even light as possible. It comes with a very nice carrying case which is of heavy material with handles. It is easy to put together and can be done quite quickly. The grid which is sold separately is a good addition to control the direction of light. The unit is very light and for my configuration using the Strobepro/Bowens speedrings is easy to attach. Compared to using speedlites with shoot through umbrellas the softbox with bare bulb flash unit provides a very nice even light across the subject with very little or no hot spots compared to the speedlite/umbrella combo. As far as build quality, for now it seams to be quite good, as I have only been using this softbox for a short period of time, I will have to wait and see how it lasts (the reason for my 4 stars) I would recommend this softbox to anyone who is shooting waist up Portraits with 1 to 2 people.
I came in there and had a ton of dumb questions and your staff was very helpful and gracious. The first person to help wasn't even a salesman, he was an instructor and as a result was helpful because I wanted also to talk about light quality which seemed to be his specialty. Thanks again.
