Generally speaking, I’ve never been a fan of small light modifiers–but the Lastolite Ezybox Speed-lite 2 is giving me a solid reason to say that I’ve been wrong. The mini softbox folds up to a very compact size that fits into the same messenger bags that can hold a 13 inch laptop. Additionally it has a silver interior and two layers of diffusion that can help soften the light output from the otherwise pretty small softbox.
Generally speaking, softboxes like this are great for tight headshots and portraits–especially when used on location. They’re also pretty good for small products, food, etc. But sometimes you may want something a bit more. Despite saying that, this little softbox can deliver just the right amount of light in lots of situations.
