Pho­tog­ra­phy us­ing hot­shoe flash has be­come in­creas­ingly popular. One way to im­prove flash pho­tog­ra­phy is to dif­fuse the of­ten harsh light flashes put out. The soft­box in Häh­nel’s Soft­box60 kit is nicely de­signed, and its 60x60cm size makes it ideal for at­tach­ing to a hot­shoe flash. It’s eas­ily as­sem­bled: a moulded plas­tic bracket at­taches to the flash us­ing a com­pres­sion bolt, then the soft­box slots into it. Although the soft­box adds bulk, it’s easy to han­dle. The fab­ric is of ex­cel­lent qual­ity and, most im­por­tantly, it soft­ens the light and pro­duces a good spread. The only down side is the qual­ity of the bag the soft­box ar­rives in: it’s not bad, but not up to the same stan­dard as the rest of the kit.
