Great deal on a Westcott 28" softbox!...
This sale for the Westcott 28" Apollo Speedlight softbox, an outstanding light modifier at an incredible price ($95 and free shipping)!
The reasons I have two of these softboxes are:
1. They are made to be used with Speedlights (or for you Canon shooters - Speedlites)
2. They are made on umbrella frames so they open and close quick and easy
3. It's 28 inches so it gives a big light
4. You can rotate the flash inside the softbox
5. The front panel is recessed for greater (feathering) control of the light
And it comes with a flash shoe mount umbrella bracket.
Here's the link where you can get more details and order (of you are so inclined).
For a good demonstration of the kind of light it throws (and the images you can get) check out this post at Neil van Niekerk's blog.
Neil is actually reviewing RadioPoppers in the post but is using the Westcott 28" Apollo Speedlight softbox as is light source.
