I have some Alien Bees Strobes (AB800s) and have gotten by happily with umbrellas and large (DIY) diffusion panels . I find myself in the market for a large softbox (looking to use my light more efficiently with less waste/spill and quicker setup) but finding it hard to come to a decision.. While I have been really happy with the Alien Bee lights, I see mixed reviews about their light-modifiers particularly their softboxes. Also Paul C. Buff has recently discontinued his line of non-folding softboxes. I need to find something that works well for the price but also won't fall apart after a few sessions. The ABs seem like the cheapest thing around in part because they include the speed rings -- otherwise $29. A Giant 30x60" Foldable Softbox goes for $159 + shipping. But I'm concerned about quality and heard that the foldable boxes can oclude some of the light with the inner supports therby casting a shadow. Any advice? I've been very happy with my 'Bees.. i'm just not sure about the softboxes.. Are there any softboxes that provide as good bang:buck ratio as my AB800. I'm willing to spent a bit more .. but only for a tangible reason.
