The Mi­cro Apollo re­sem­bles a con­ven­tional soft­box, but this de­sign will stay up­right with­out you need­ing to mess about with any sup­port­ing rods. Just pull the two plas­tic tabs ei­ther side of the grippy, elas­ti­cated flash­gun col­lar and hey presto! In­stant soft­box. It packs flat and weighs next to noth­ing, so you’ll barely no­tice it on the go, while the 20 x 13cm panel pro­vides a good bal­ance of per­for­mance and porta­bil­ity.

Con­sid­er­ing it’s such a small and sim­ple piece of kit, this mod­i­fier gen­er­ates amaz­ing re­sults. Shad­ows are no­tice­ably more dif­fused when com­pared to the other con­ven­tional dif­fusers on test, and light tem­per­a­ture is im­pres­sively neu­tral too.

If you’re af­ter great light dif­fu­sion in a por­ta­ble pack­age, the Mi­cro Apollo is a bril­liant buy.
