for on-camera flash, big bounce is definitely better because of the height and auto-focus

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.
