Re: Softbox mounted on camera - no bracket

Hi Steve,

I currently use a Lumiquest Pocket Bouncer for on camera flash. It definitely softens the light and leaves very little if any shadows. The shadows it does leave are soft and not as harsh as direct flash.

Thanks Dave,

Could you answer another question, please...

Which accessory would yield a more natural looking result under the
following conditions: outdoor/evening shooting of people relatively
close (not necessarily portraits, but maybe, including candids) -
nothing to bounce off.

A softbox or a pocket bouncer?

I was considering a softbox for just this prupose, then I realized
there was other types of bouncers, etc...

Thanks a lot!
