Space an issue? We got you covered! The Cheetah MAX20 softbox is our speedy 20 inch modifier that provides beautiful light with a build quality made to last. Being the smallest size in the Quick Series collection, it's great for travel when portability matters.
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 Max 20 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.

I've purchased multiple quick soft boxes from from Cheetah stand over the years and I continue to love them. The max 20 is no exception. Lightweight, very well-built and ready to use in seconds.
IÃ¢â¬â¢ll start with the build quality which is exactly what IÃ¢â¬â¢ve come to expect from Cheetahstand. Every product IÃ¢â¬â¢ve purchased from them has been superior to any other brand I own.
IÃ¢â¬â¢ve used the Max20 twice so far and was surprised at how versatile it is. IÃ¢â¬â¢ve used it as a closeup beauty dish and a backlight for headshots. Lightweight and travels easy. IÃ¢â¬â¢m sure it will be a staple in my gear.
Great Cheetastand quality .
Beautiful light output.
I love the MAX20! Price: great value for the dollar! Setup: easy! Sturdiness: like a rock! Light quality: outstanding!
The MAX20 is quickly becoming one of my favorite light modifiers.
