Descripción del producto
Westcott apollo orb is the first octagonal softbox that doesn't require an adapter ring. Simply open like an umbrella, place the light inside and attach the included diffusion panel. Designed specifically with a deeper profile, light is evenly projected for maximum output. This round octagonal shaped unit simulates the look of natural sunlight by providing a round catch light in subject's eyes. The recessed edge provides the ultimate in light direction and control. The convenience of an umbrella meets the control of a softbox. Built on an umbrella frame, the Apollo light modifiers set up in seconds. No additional parts and pieces to lug around as these units simply open up just like an umbrella and set up in seconds making them perfect for any on-location photographer. Face the light forward through the white diffusion front for specular highlights. Specular highlights will provide a "hot spot" on your subject with a greater fall off from highlights to shadows. Fabrics are pure in color so the color temperature going into the fabric is the same color temperature coming back out.

The only potential problem I actually found is how the ribs are attached at the front of the box. The stitching seemed to be totally inadequate so I had a friend who knows how to sew, reinforce those tips. I also out a few drops of Krazy Glue on it to make it more secure . The stitching along the ribs is also very sloppy but since they only hold the ribs in place not a big issue. But for a 130 bucks I would expect better.
Overall I think the quality is decent with some room for improvement, obviously. The quality of the light is excellent. And for those who use this or any other softbox or umbrella on a windy day, use your heads. These things become sails and damage will probably happen.
Finally, Westcott could do much better on the pricing of this. They're a company that has been around a very long time and using their name to bump it up. Or alternatively, improve the quality and retain the current pricing.
I've been informed too that they do not sell the FPD alone, then I had to buy a piece of white fabric and have my own FPD produced (this was the main reason I killed one star). Anyway, even with this "3d party" FPD, it gives me a lovely soft directional light. In fact, 2 FDPs with different fabrics have been produced and I only like the results of one of them (the more translucent fabric).
If you plan to buy it during a visit to the USA and take it home, beware this thing is too long! You'll find it hard to make it fit int a case or something like that.
Pros: Perfect size for my needs (portraits/merchandise). Super easy to set up.
Cons: No travel bag included and you will need to find a long carrying bag (I am still looking for one). It is overpriced but lucky for me, I was able to find one in like-new condition very cheap (saved almost $50). Otherwise, I would have probably gone with a different brand. I love my Orb, but as much as I love it, I don't think it is worth the price Wescott is currently charging on their website as well as most other online sites.
