This Fotodiox 6 X 9 inch flash rocks! It points at the subject and does not droop! This Fotodiox 6 X 9 inch Softbox for an external flash is outstanding.I have several different flash softboxes and this one is the best of all of them. In most brands once the softbox is unfolded will not stay straight. They droop down because the seams that hold them straight are too weak. I keep buying different brands and finally I have found a good one. This softbox, once unfolded, stays straight ahead towards the subject without drooping.It took me a total of 3 - 6 X 8 inch softboxes and none of them are strong enough to hold the flash material straight on line with the subject. I made the mistake of ordering a 8 X 12 inch softbox and it was even worse. It looked like a wilted flower. It would not stay straight out no matter how I manipulated the seams.This softbox from Fotodiox is the best one of the bunch. It is a little bigger at 6 X 9, and it works great too. It takes out the shadows and illuminates the area uniformly without any hot spots. It works really great as a fill softbox on the external flash. The flash fill does not look like a flash was used and that is the look we strive for. It sits up on top of the external camera flash all loud and proud. I finally got the right one and now I am a very happy camper. 5I also posted pictures on each of these diffusers so you can decide for yourself what this looks like. I m a photo-enthusiast I have 3 DSLR cameras, all Canons: XTi, 7D and T4i.I also own three different flash diffusers, all purchased from Amazon.com.I also own Canon Speedlite 430EX II, also purchased from Amazon.comThis is a review on all three products in comparison to each other.I also posted pictures on each of these diffusers so you can decide for yourself what this looks like.I m a photo-enthusiast. I hardly ever shoot on automatic, and almost always in manual mode. This is not to say I m good at shooting pictures, but that I m too stubborn and proud to say I shoot on automatic because I don t understand how my cameras work. Well, I don t. Not well enough.One of the most frustrating things for most people who take pictures, especially indoors or in poorly lit conditions is how horrible things look with the hot shoe flash. I mean, YUCK.The key is to, BTW, manually adjust your flash through the menu. I didn t know I could do this until most recently and I ve owned my cameras for almost 4 years! It does make a big difference.And the thing is, having a diffuser is ALWAYS better than not having one. So even though I m listing the diffusers from worst to best (that I own), I think the worst diffuser is better than no diffuser at all. The first diffuser I purchased was the Omni-Bounce Diffuser OMEY For The Canon 550 EX back in 2010 for $14.97.Pluses:better than absolutely no diffuser for your hot shoe (the one that comes automatically with your camera) flashit actually fits on any of my cameras extremely wellDraw back:I can t believe I paid $15 for this!!! That s uber expensive compared to the other two I just purchased recently and it definitely does not do the job as well as the other two.I actually didn t have a problem with how thin the diffuser is like another reviewer here. It s pretty thick for me.The warm and cool diffusers do NOT work for me at all. They cast a very harsh warm or cool tone in my pictures. They re pretty much useless.If you are opting for this because you cannot afford a Speedlite or equivalent right now, I recommend instead the Hot-Shoe Flash Diffuser Set for DSLR Cameras (CANON, NIKON, PENTAX, OLYMPUS, PANASONIC, LEICA) + Premium MagicFiber Microfiber Lens Cleaning Cloth for $6.49 because it looks like the same product and therefore will produce the same results.Bottom line: better than absolutely no diffuser, cool and warm diffusers suck, fits well on camera/ hot shoe flash, get the other one (see above) because it s MUCH cheaper. Vintage DF430EX Camera Flash Diffuser for Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flash for$4.17. It s an add-on item, so you have to purchase at least $25 for this to ship to you for free, which isn t a problem for me, but it might be for you.Pluses:definitely better than NOT having a diffuser on, but not as good if you had a white wall to bounce off ofrelatively cheaprelatively effective (again, see my pictures for references)Draw backs:another reviewer already claimed this: WOW, this is SUPER hard to fit onto my Speedlite. I actually thought maybe it was me before I checked the other reviews. Just remember what LOOKS like could work is actually OPPOSITE of how you fit the sucker on.Bottom Line:It s a worthwhile investment, but had I had the chance to do it again, I would have just bought the following. I bought this item because another reviewer recommended buying this one WITH the next one to make things stay better on the flash. So far, I have no problem with my third review item on this list falling off. Then again, I m in a climate controlled room when I was testing it out.Fotodiox 6"x9" Softbox for Flash, Speedlight, Nikon SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910, Canon Speedlite 380EX, 430EX, II, 550EX, 580EX, II, 600EX- for $11.45 is easily one of the best purchases under $20 I ve ever purchase for my camera. I can t believe how much softer the flash is with this magical thing on my external flash.Serious pros:under $12 and will get to you in 2 days with Amazon Primelays and stores flat in a case; you can t throw it in a bag and bang it against a concrete wall and expect it to surviveso effective I don t think I ll invest in a large softbox any time soon - not even jokingDraw backs:I can see the elastic band wearing out in a few years. It will then be difficult to have this stay on my flash. The easiest way to fix this is to replace the elastic, and if you know how to sew, this won t be difficult or too expensive.Bottom line: if you re not a professional photographer or an absolute perfectionist, or if you re limited on your budget, this is the best bang for your buck on a external flash diffuser. I can t believe I waited this long to get it. 5Good within its limits After fumbling around the first time, attaching it to the flash unit is no problem. Getting it to unfold the first time takes some fiddling and poking but after that is ok. If folded and stored for long it will probably revert just be patient.This device is NOT a substitute for a full size light box, umbrella or any other larger modifier. With a flash unit mounted on the camera this will in fact soften the light falling on flowers, small pets and other close subjects. It very slightly softens full light on faces. If you get close enough to have a greater effect you will be distorting the face (Jimmy Durante nose effect). Like any light source it will give more pleasing results off camera and located to the side. These limitations will be true for ANY similarly sized competing device -- there is no magic gadget to get around the relative size issue since that is just the physics of the situation. 4Doesn't fit too well It doesn't really fit my canon 430ex iii. It's almost as if it is designed to fit a far smaller flash head, as it is difficult to get the velcro strap to go all the way around. Once you do get it around and fixed into place, the box collapses, causing and playing around with it might get it into place, but once you move around a bit it will move on you. During photoshoots this is a very serious issue, as it causes light distribution to be out of whack. Doing a test while the camera was on a tripod, using the same settings and a remote shutter (to prevent camera shake as much as possible by having to touch the body to press the shutter.) I used my 430EX, the omni bounce diffuser (hard plastic), and this softbox. Using the lowest and maximum light settings, I noticed the Omni bounce diffuser gave me far superior light distribution and softened up the photos really well. The softbox gave me almost no difference than using the 430ex alone with nothing attached to it on both intensity settings.I guess what I'm trying to say is: It's not the softbox for me. 2Portable Softbox This is pretty much a portable softbox. Yes it will fit on a speedlight pointed forwards mounted on a DSLR and not get in the way of the lens.I use it when I need a very portable set up and using off camera flashes. It's sort of a pain to get on the flash and keep on but I use the plastic omnibounce to try and make it easier. 5Works well. I brought this right before taking pictures for my friend's wedding. It was a last minute purchase, the "Just in case". I was so glad I brought this, I end up using this almost the entire night, helps out great deal at the reception indoor. Glad I didn't get the bigger size, this is big enough for moving around the whole night. The softbox stayed on my flash nicely without moving or falling off. Very happy with the purchase over all. Come with a zip carrying case. Quality pretty acceptable, for the price I don't expect anything, but it is not cheaply build which is great! 5Good for special situations. The diffuser seems to work well on my Nikon SB-700 Speedlight although attaching it with the stretchy elastic band can be a challenge. The interior of the diffuser is lined with a silvery reflective material that helps bounce the stray light from the flash. However, the soft sides of the product are not very stiff especially the seams on the bottom which tend to make them collapse and possibly obscure the flash lens. I can't be sure but it is a concern. As for light output, I estimate two stops of light are lost using the unit but the results are adequate for the task. The light pattern is even and shadows are soft. It is just necessary to boost the power of the flash to compensate. As a result, I see this product is best used when bounce flash is impractical and loss of light output not an issue. 4Not perfect but does the job The item does the job - it diffuses the flash's light well enough to soften the harsh shadow lines left when shooting without a diffuser.The two main issues are:1) It does not maintain its shape when unfolded; this does not seem to adversely affect the light diffusion and the wide-angle light coverage, but it can't be optimal. This could be remedied by inserting spring-steel wire in the edges (after unfolding).2) The zippered storage sleeve is fraying excessively on the inside, leaving a large amount of polyester threads on the white surface of the diffuser, requiring constant cleaning. The latter can be remedied by liberal application of seam sealer: https://www.amazon.com/Dritz-1674-Liquid-Sealant-0-75-Ounce/dp/B000YQKIDY).It can be fixed but the product designer should have thought of all that; if we had to correct all mistakes, then the product might as well cost a dollar. 4I m happy with it Product Name: Fotodiox 6"x9" Softbox for Flash, Speedlight, Nikon SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910, Canon Speedlite 380EX, 430EX, II, 550EX, 580EX, II, 600EX-RT, Vivita Flash, Sunpack, Sunpak, Nissin, Sigma, Sony, Pentax, Olympus, Panasonic Lumix FlashesQuality: I m happy with it.Craftsmanship: Well stitched and fits on my flash, surely this will fit on most flashes and/ or cameras.Use: To make the flash when needed, not quite so harsh.Pros: Bouncing the light off other options and not your subject.Cons: I have none.Cleaning: Damp cloth, or maybe a good shake outside if it is a dust issue.Conclusion: I would purchase it again and would recommend it.Disclosure: This product was of a promotional nature it was provided to me at a discount or free, so I could evaluate it and give my honest unbiased assessment and review. I base my purchases on reviews of the product from others. I know that honest and helpful reviews provide insight to the company and to the purchasers as well. I am not connected to this company or any of the companies of products that I evaluate. I hope this review was helpful to you. All my assessments reflect only my opinion and thoughts of the product and may not be the same was what other customers/reviewers may experience with the same product. 4Best diffuse lighting for its size - a little awkward to put on I did a comparison of this item versus the Stofen Omni-Bounce unit for the SB600 OM-600 flash diffuser and the first-generation Gary Fong Lightsphere (circa 2009). After compensating for brightness and white balance differences, shadows were far softer than with the OM-600, half a stop more light was transmitted than with the Lightsphere (only 0.05 stops less than the OM-600!), and it did not introduce nearly as much warm white balance as the white plastic of the OM-600 and Lightsphere (4550K vs. 4700K for direct flash, 4100 for Lightsphere, 4050 for OM-600). Shadows were noticeably softer and lighting more uniform than with the Lightsphere - this was more subtle but definitely visible at screen resolution. In terms of output, it's a winner in every category.In its collapsed form it fits nicely into my camera bag snugged up against my 70-200mm in its long pouch - anything bigger would not have fit at all. Unlike the original Lightsphere, which consisted of two plastic pieces and a separate strap, the Fotodiox is one monolithic piece with the strap sewn on so you can't lose it. The OM-600 has the advantage of simply sliding on and it's done; with both the Fotodiox and Lightsphere you have to wrap a strap around the flash to attach it, and with the collapsed Fotodiox you also have to expand it first. The attachment is quite secure during movement and rotation and does not cover the flash controls. I've also used it off-camera wirelessly successfully - it stays on and does not prevent wireless activation. I can hold it in one hand while shooting with the other, and use the built-in flash on the D800 as a second light source.In dark environments where the SB600's autofocus lamp is needed, the Fotodiox needs to be rotated up during focusing, just like the Lightsphere, whereas the OM-600 does not cover it.In short: this is the best diffuser of its size that I've tried if even, diffuse lighting with soft shadows is what you want. However, it takes a bit longer to put on than alternatives, and is too large to leave on all the time unlike the OM-600 - so it's not good for sudden, impulsive shots. 4

Unlike the original Lightsphere, which consisted of two plastic pieces and a separate strap, the Fotodiox is one monolithic piece with the strap sewn on so you can't lose it. The OM-600 has the advantage of simply sliding on and it's done; with both the Fotodiox and Lightsphere you have to wrap a strap around the flash to attach it, and with the collapsed Fotodiox you also have to expand it first. The attachment is quite secure during movement and rotation and does not cover the flash controls. I've also used it off-camera wirelessly successfully - it stays on and does not prevent wireless activation. I can hold it in one hand while shooting with the other, and use the built-in flash on the D800 as a second light source.In dark environments where the SB600's autofocus lamp is needed, the Fotodiox needs to be rotated up during focusing, just like the Lightsphere, whereas the OM-600 does not cover it.In short: this is the best diffuser of its size that I've tried if even, diffuse lighting with soft shadows is what you want. However, it takes a bit longer to put on than alternatives, and is too large to leave on all the time unlike the OM-600 - so it's not good for sudden, impulsive shots. 4
