BigBounce or SoftBox III ?
Dec 3, 2011

Wanna buy one of the two but dunno which one.

They seem to give very similar results in softening. Only real difference is that the SoftBox III blocks the AF assist light.

I intend to use it mainly for outdoor portrait shooting on rather close distance. 3 to 10 feet. I already searched the internet for all kinds of info but still can't make my mind up.

Any final thoughts for me ?
