LumiQuest SoftBox III - LQ119
The SoftBox III is roughly twice the size of our original SoftBox, approximately 20 times the size of the flash head itself, thereby producing considerably softer shadows. Like the original SoftBox (LQ-107), the SoftBox III is center weighted but is large enough to block autofocus assist and interfere with auto exposure UNLESS you are using TTL metering.
Customer Reviews of LumiQuest SoftBox III
Hard to handle due to size/design2/4/2014
I wanted a large light modifier and this is a good size one but the design makes it difficult to latch on tight to my Canon 580 speedlites. It falls off easily and I notice that shooting with umbrellas provide softer, more even light. Not recommended.
Does the job8/30/2011
Useful for times when you want to use an on-camera flash but avoid some of the dark shadows behind subject. Also good for off-camera flash when on location and size and weight are restrictions. Does the job it is supposed to and does it well; folds down very small and easily. I am usually a bounce flash shooter if and when I use a flash so this doesn't see a ton of action therefore I can't really comment on durability but it seems like it would be fine. The velcro that comes with it is adequate and has yet to pull off the flash head at all.
