Is a top brand worth it ?
In reply to activator, Apr 11, 2012

The soft box that you get for this table top photography should be dependent upon the size of the object(s) that you will be focusing. Most like a 2 foot by 3 foot one would be good. Experience has taught me that going cheap is not always the best way. A brand name soft box such as Chimera, Photoflex or Wescott are quality products, with a wide variety of speed rings for different flash models. Oriental versions may not be the best quality, nor offer you a variety of sizes so your system can grow as you need it.

You can also do a DIY project and make a frame with white translucent fabric stretched on both sides and shoot any flash through it, especially speedlights or monoblocs without removable reflectors.
