Bargain small wired softbox works great!,
This review is from: Neewer 16"x16"/40cmx40cm Photography Photo Video Studio Wired Softbox Flash Light Lighting Diffuser with E27 Socket for Fluorescent Bulb Lamp (Electronics)This Neewer 40x40 cm (16" x 16") Wired Studio Softbox is a modified umbrella with builtin one-socket CFL light head. Per the description—Package Contents: 1x Wired Studio Softbox—this product includes only the wired softbox (and storage bag). Bulb, stand and white backdrop are not included. It's designed to provide continuous light for video but works great for stills if you shoot at larger apertures. It is not compatible with monolights or shoe flash.
CONSTRUCTION: I opened the box and what a shock! It's made well with medium weight nylon, steel ribs and bright white diffusion panel/cloth. It's a tiny umbrella but without a center shaft. Open by simply pushing the plastic ring attached to the support ribs. It locks in place with the plastic ring around the socket. Next, install the bulb and attach the white diffusion panel to the velcro on the front. Finally, mount the works on a light stand (not included) or use on the floor or a chair.

This is a budget light to be sure, but IT WORKS. I have been using this to light myself for YouTube and videos that I make and the difference between this and just a lightbulb is huge. Very happy with this purchase.

This review is from: Neewer 16"x16"/40cmx40cm Photography Photo Video Studio Wired Softbox Flash Light Lighting Diffuser with E27 Socket for Fluorescent Bulb Lamp (Electronics)Value for money. So far, so good (will update this review as needed). These are the perfect size for our Annnd...Action! Photo Booth small studio set-up. They readily unfold and the "pop-up" ring apparatus (not sure to call it) settles into place easily. So far, we've used a regular 60 watt bulb and the soft filter is not impacted by heat (the reflective box is deep enough (others complained the lightbulb touches it? not sure how this is possible if set-up properly)) and the bulb inset is taking the heat without signs of melting or damage. The detachable screen fits pretty well along the front providing a decent, taut fit. There are several pinholes along the seams and on the black fabric which are allowing light to escape - but nothing major. Provides nice, balanced filtered light as expected. Two wishes: 1) the cord seems to be made of the lightest weight, most flexible wire possible. Doesn't feel as sturdy or durable as, say a new lamp would. With care, I hope it will... Read more
