This Little Knowen Product Surprises Me
By Andrew Potter Photography
Comments about Lastolite 90cm Hotrod Octa Softbox:
Great for strobist style photography, I was very surprised that there wasn't more reviews/information about this product. It provides great light, not to soft but not to specular too, a great compromise. The inner baffle does a good job at controlling the hot spot produced by a shoe mounted flash and spreads the light evenly and the outer baffle does a great job of softening the light. Very portable. Not the quickest to set-up but not rocket science either, (compared to the Easy Box Hot Shoe for example) not something you would like to do in a rush lets say.The rod design makes it very strong and robust, but also unfortunately not very compact when it is put away (again comparing it to the Easy Box Hot Shoe!! There is LOTS of Velcro on this product and it's bag which can make it frustrating to get it set-up and put away. All that said, the small niggles are just that and I highly recommend this product the catch lights produced are just great and its relativity light weight yet strong design is ideal for pro/semi pro toggs. You will not be disappointed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
