    Does anyone know of any softbox set-ups that can be used with Canon Speedlites? I know I can knock something up in a strobist fashion, but would be interested in any products out there that are purpose built. Found this ALZO Digital Porta Flash Softbox, but there are no UK stockists I can find (much less a Saudi one).

    A photographer I know (on another site) posted a bunch of pics of this. I couldn't find it on the manufacturer's web site so I'll share some of the photos he posted,

    I guess I'll also quote his post, I don't think he'll mind.

    I use the small one from lumiquest.... its ok. Not quite big enough at times. Nice to carry to use in a pinch.

    Wow. the one posted by Mike looks really nice.

    Mike, do you have the manufacturers' name? Maybe I'm being dumb, but I'm not seeing it.

    I have one of the Lumiquests, but they are not really big enough for what I want.

    Chimera, as well as many other brands, sell speedlight mounts for their speedrings. I've been using this method with my 16"x24" Chimera softboxes, and I think it works much better than the mounts I've purchased!
