umbrella or softbox for travelling?
Apr 11, 2013

hi,
for my next travels i want to take some lighting equipment with me. i would be interested to hear what people's experiences are regarding the use of umbrellas versus softboxes.
i assume softboxes are more sturdy and withstand wind a little bit better, on the other hand, umbrellas are easier to carry.
what are your experiences, and what equipment do you take with you on outdoor shoots?
i am also particularly interested in the practicalities of carrying that equipment around when travelling. can you take the softboxes/umbrellas and light stands onboard a plane as hand luggage etc...
(in my case i am talking about an ezybox hotshoe 24' softbox and a small umbrella)
thanks,
markus
