I already have the 36inch version and love it, so it was a no brainer getting this one to complete my portable on site set up. I use the 60" with the XL600ii and the 36" with my x60HSS and the results are spot on, quality of light from the modifier especially with the optional grid I purchased for both 60 and 36" is studio quality.
Apparently, i'm the only person who has trouble locking this open. Once I get to the lock, it gets too hard to push any further and it cuts off the circulation from my fingers. It drives me nuts. It's easy to open when i push it against a cement wall in the garage, but its to big to fit through the house door. When I had a shoot in the forest, i pressed it against a tree. That aside, it's awesome! it creates a very soft light. And again, you couldnt beat the price!
It is amazing it diffuses the light just right !
Love this soft box! I do wish it was a little lighter, but its really easy to setup and looks great!
The umbrella design of this and other rapid pro boxes makes it incredibly easy to set up and take down. I used to hate that part of the process but is now a breeze. This is the second rapid pro octabox I've purchased from Strobepro and and am once again very pleased with the quality of their products. Do yourself a favour and spend the extra little bit and get the rapid version - you won't regret it.
