Seriously, the best light modifier in my arsenal. I've been using the 47'' inch octabox for 4 years in all conditions, indoor and outdoor, in the snow, on the beach, in the woods, under the rain and it still in great shape even after all this beating. I wanted the get the big mama 60'' octabox for a long time and I can say it creates the best soft, wrapping light.
This light modifier works exactly as they claim and seems to be made of fairly high quality materials. The design is well-thought-out, with the one exception being the release button, which requires quite a lot of pressure and therefore digs into your thumb or finger quite hard. I would love an 84” version of this modifier and would buy it in a heartbeat, even if they didn’t fix the release button.
Thanks for your review Stephen. When releasing the softbox be sure to put it on the ground and push down on the sliding mechanism. Then you can push the button to release it at the same time. Otherwise it will be very tight like you mentioned. Enjoy shooting!
Needed a big soft box for a nice key light and it got the job done nicely! It’s super easy to setup and tear down saves a lot of time on set.
Great for backgrounds and even better for nice natural looking light falling on your subject.
