Has anyone used the Aurora FBO65 Firefly Beauty Box?
Feb 19, 2013

This is the one I'm considering to buy

http://www.adorama.com/AUFBBO26.html

Right now I don't have any big softbox or umbrella to use with flash. I've just used flash for outdoor portrait recently. So I want to buy one. Umbrella is cheap and convenient to bring but I worry about the light quality it brings. Actually I intend to buy a reflective umbrella when I need more power of light, or when I use with CTO gel. But for the main light source I still want to buy a softbox.

The firefly beauty box 65 looks impressive to me. It is very portable, light weight but it seems that the light will be soft and even due to the reflective dish attached to the front diffuser. I also light the round catchlight.

So the Firefly Beauty Box  65 is the one I should buy. But that's just my guessing. Has anyone had experience with this softbox? Is the light this softbox gives that good?

Btw, I shoot portrait with the tele lens (80-200) and I use two flashes. If I use the softbox as the main light source, what should I use with the second flash (shoot through umbrella, reflective umbrella?)

Thank!
