New Soft Boxes by Lastolite for Speedlights!
Just wanted to take a quick second to let everyone know that Lastolite has come out with some new, very cool softboxes for speedlights!
If you're unfamiliar with Lastolite, they make awesome products for speedlights (and other photography related gear too) such as the Lastolite Ezybox Hotshoe and the very popular Tri-Grip Reflectors and Diffusers. I have the Lastolite Ezybox Hotshoe softbox and one of the Tri-Grips and can definitely say that they are top quality and get the job done excellently well.
Continuing on with their successful line of products for speedlight users, Lastolite has come out with two cool new products called the Hotrod Strip Softbox and the Hotrod Octa Softboxes. I've been waiting for a while for a manufacturer to come up with a good octabox and strip box for speedlights so I will definitely be planning on purchasing one or both of these some time in the near future.
I don't own either of these so I can't honestly attest to the quality and capability, but if they're anything like the Ezybox or their Tri-Grip reflectors, I'm sure they are top notch. I will seriously be looking forward to getting to try these out and wanted to share the info with everyone.
For a little more in depth info, check out this video on how to use and set up the Hotrod Strip Softbox.
If anybody has one, or picks up one, please leave a comment to let us know what you think!
