CL-SPSB600 LED 600 Speed Softbox Kit
by Andrew Buys
This is a great kit! It is much easier to use than other softboxes. I've read good things about this softbox in various forums so I wasn't too concerned about the bad review I read on this site. When I first tried to attach the softbox to the speed ring it felt too tight to ever work. I then realized that I was going about it the wrong way. It's a little difficult to explain, but once I figured it out (didn't take more than 30 seconds) it was very easy to setup and use. I assume that the bad review below came about because of misuse.
The softbox folds into two different stages. It's very easy to fold into the first stage and it's a very reasonable size and completely flat. Richard even includes a case to put it in if you just want to use this stage. If you're really ambitious you can try folding it from stage 1 to stage 2. The technique is very much like folding a photo reflector, but much more difficult. I was able to get it back into this stage, but I actually prefer just folding it flat.
This is a must have accessory for your LED600.
