    So, they automatically collapse when you pick them up? Interesting. I'm not sure if I'd like that.

    Haha...this shit is so uncomfortably funny. I liked how he wanted to toss that ring adapter like Favre, but showed show constraint realizing he was being flimed.

    I have some softboxes like that. They are not that brand but some other. They work ... ok. Ultimately they are too harsh and too small for effective portrait making. They make for great product lights, but for people they kinda fail. I fell back to 60" umbrellas and am much happier. Maybe I just did not give them a chance :dunno:

    Edit* also forgot to mention the biggest problem with these is the fact that the box blocks the ttl sensor on most flashes so don't expect your flashes to be consistent.

    Wedding photog I've assisted uses some stands like those. They're great if you move your lights around a lot. They're also great if you have an assistant to be your light bitch because if you can't get the light where you want with stands, you can just have your assistant lift it up and use it as a light stick right away

    I have the cheetah box. You can find cheaper ones on ebay, which are essentially knockoffs of the lastolite ezbox. Construction is ok I guess, and I like the fact that it includes a grid. It looks like he raised the price since I bought mine.
