    "Connector is sold separately" This is a nice softbox but is way too large for a speedlight to work well.

    Photoflex also makes a smaller softbox and clamp that your strobe fits on.

    i think the softbox will work with the lightstands i already bought.

    the only thing is i think i will have to use the sync cables that came with my cactus triggers because it will set the strobe too high to use in the speedring.

    What do you mean? The speedring just goes over the flash and then the whole thing goes into the softbox right? Why wouldnt you still be setting strobe power?

    not setting the flash output. physically setting the flash into the ring.

    shows how it mounts. adding the 2" of height from hotshoe mounting the cactus trigger might make the flash sit too high to be placed optimally in the ring.

    Same here. I just got a 40d on a whim so my photo budget just went to zero til I get something that pays.
