In The Box:
SoftBox III - The SoftBox III is roughly twice the size of our original SoftBox, and approximately 20 times the size of the flash head itself, thereby producing considerably softer shadows. Like the original SoftBox (LQ-107), the SoftBox III is center weighted and will provide softer photo lighting.
FXtra - The FXtra is a compact flash gels holder that includes red, blue and yellow special effects gels, and an assortment of green and CTO (color temperature orange) gels required to balance your flash for both fluorescent and incandescent environments, as well as the daylight for which your flash is balanced. It also accommodates the Strobist® collection and both Lee and Rosco gels samples. Any LumiQuest accessory (and many other brands) can be attached while the FXtra is in place allowing you to colorize the light while using a variety of light modifiers.
UltraStraps - The UltraStrap is the most secure, non-adhesive flash attachment mounting strap available. The patented marriage of neoprene and Velcro® loop results in a strap that applies a constant 3 lb. tension to the flash with a non skid surface. The rugged UltraStrap attaches to most flashes in seconds to provide a secure flash attachment point for all LumiQuest accessories.
The Strobist® Kit includes some of the most popular "go-to" light modifiers of David Hobby, aka "The Strobist"; the SoftBox III, the FXtra, a nine piece colored gel kit and two UltraStraps, the most secure non adhesive mounting strap in the industry, all in a convenient storage wallet.
This kit is a great starting point to help you develop the skills needed to explore an array of flash techniques. The SoftBox III is roughly 20 times the size of the flash itself for softer shadows, and the FXtra a 9 piece colored gel kit including those for balancing your flash for tungsten and fluorescent light.
In addition, to attach your accessories to your flash, we've included two UltraStraps which apply a constant 3 lbs. of pressure to the flash for a secure fit. Unless otherwise noted, all LumiQuest accessories fit most standard bounce flashes.
