When size matters and light isn't compromised. The Cheetah QSB-26 softbox is a 26 inch modifier that provides beautiful wraparound light with a build quality made to last. Being the smallest size in the QSB collection, it's great for travel when space is scarce.
The innovative Quick Release System is designed for speedy set up and break downs for the creator on the go! Just as easy as it is to open and close a traditional umbrella, you can have your modifier set up in seconds, saving you time and stress when you are creating your masterpiece. This is extra important if you are renting space because who wants to waste time setting up and breaking down when you could be making more magic?
The interior of the softbox is lined with a specially engineered pebbled silver material, a Cheetah Stand exclusive. Smooth silver material can produce significant hot spots in the light output making it difficult to use the box without a diffuser. The unique design of the pebbling in our softbox diffuses the light, resulting in more consistent light while maintaining maximum output. This is especially important when shooting in bright sun when you need to get the most power from your lights.
The exterior is a tough, flexible material that is tear-resistant and water-resistant. It comes equipped with 2 layers of diffusion that can all be easily cleaned - especially important if you are going to take it on adventures! Combined with the best grid in the market measuring at 4cm x 4cm x 4cm, you will have extreme control of your light spread.
The reflector plate adds an extra dimension to the capabilities of this softbox. The plate comes pre-installed, but is removable by user. You can use the QRB with or without any diffuser to produce an edgy and crisp light that is great for showing the shape and texture of your subject.
For softer light, add the front diffuser.
For even softer light, use both front and inner diffuser.
The diffusers can be used in combination with the reflector plate, or without it to achieve many different looks with a single softbox.
The 4 thumbscrew design makes it easy to change speed ring inserts when you switch between lighting systems quickly and without tools.

Love the umbrella. And fast shipping. Win win for me.
I wanted a softbox that wasn't too small and not too big since I do on-location photography, including some outdoor events. I like the 26 inch size as the wind shouldn't catch it too much that would cause the stand to fall over. This worked wonderful at an outdoor, evening wedding last weekend at diffusing the light to reflect off the tent as guests danced. As reviews I watched pointed out and I experienced, it was very easy to setup and breakdown with both diffuser layers on.
Buying on line is always a shot in the dark. You never know what you will get. With Cheetahstand, I was very happy with both the quality of the quick soup bowl beauty dishes and also the amazing service.
