Description
 

This softbox should be a included in every speedlight photographers toolkit. Perfect for outdoor photography, its relatively small size minimizes the affect of wind, but it is large enough to provide soft fill light. You might find cheaper alternatives out there, but once you see the features of our softbox versus the competition, we think you see the value. Here are some special features of the CheetahStand Speedlight Softbox.

Stronger Frame
We use a heavy-duty frame on our softbox. This allows it to keep it's square shape without relying on the diffusers to hold the shape. This means that you have the flexibility to use this softbox without any diffusers for specular light, or with just the inner diffuser for softer light. By using both the inner and outer diffusers, you get amazing soft light.

5 x 5 x 5 Grid
Some of our competitors include a grid, or have a separate grid available for their softboxes. There is a difference, our grid is made up of very useful 5cm x 5cm x 5cm squares. This allows you to truly control the spill of the light. Look at our competitors and you will often find very large grid squares that do almost nothing to control spill. Others sell the grid separately, but they are often a very expensive add-on.

Round Mask
Many photographers like a round catch-light in their models eyes. The round mask that is included with our softbox gives you the capability to control the shape of the catch-light. Many competitive softboxes don't even have this as an option.

Wide Velcro Strip
For those photographers that like to create their own flags or reflectors - and what photographer hasn't done this? - our softbox has a wide velcro strip on one side. By placing this wide strip on the bottom edge, it can be used to attach a white or silver reflector directly to the softbox to provide bounce fill light for portraits. By turning the wide strip to one side, it can be used to attach a black flag to kill side light when needed. See the video below for information on using this velcro strip.

Rubber Guard on Mount
We include a rubber guard on the mounting ring. This does a couple of things. It protects the fabric of the box from damage. It also keeps the box from turning on the mounting ring accidentally.

Larger, stronger ballhead on Mount
Our mount has a larger, stronger ballhead on the mount. Once locked, this ballhead holds the softbox securely in place.

Triangular and Round Cases
We include two cases to give you storage options for your softbox. If space is at a premium, we have a smaller, round case. If ease of access is more important, there is a triangular case that stores the softbox flat.

Great value September 26, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Westlake Village, CA United States  
Good quality. The included grid and small travel case are big pluses. This is a really useful addition to a small lighting kit.

Just right for small space or speedlites June 29, 2018
Reviewer: Gary Thomas from Philadelphia, PA  
Very comparible with the Impact Quickbox in that the box construction must be from the same plant based on the stiching. The QBox24 is about 2" deeper and about 2" narrower at the front (corner to corner) , however, the inside panels are the same size.
The QBox24 comes with an extra travel bag and pouch for plane travel - I will probably use the travel bag to carry other things so it is a big plus.  The Impact has a external pouch on the trangle carrier (good to hold the bracket) which the QBox24 lacks. Personnally I'd rather have the triangular bag with bracket pocket since I'm not likely to be flying anywhere with the QBox24.

Also, if this was packaged with a choice to ship with the Cheetah Speed Pro S Bracket I'd have gone for the S Bracket and paid a little more for it.
