Thread: Best size soft box for speedlite

    Default Best size soft box for speedlite

    I'm looking to get into off camera flash with my 430 ex ii. I've acquired a couple of Yongnuo triggers and wondered what is the optimum size soft box. I appreciate that the larger source offers softer light and am looking at an 80 cm X 80 cm godox but will this be unwieldy outdoors or even too big to hand hold with a handle for my voice operated light stand !!

    Any advice much appreciated. The main use will be for head and shoulders portraits and some still life hots when indoors

    I would think that as the 430 is not the most powerful of flashes, something up to about 24" would be suitable

    Amazon have a selection here
