PHOTTIX EASY-UP 70X70CM (28") & 60X90CM (36"X24") UMBRELLA SOFTBOX

On a budget and needing an inexpensive Umbrella Softbox to take on the road?  Phottix has a solution for you.  Their conversion from CM to Inches leaves a bit to be desired, but the product itself is quite nice.  At $57 plus around $4 shipping, you can get either size.

Product Description:

This is a must-have for on-location photographers. Folding down like a regular umbrella, the Phottix Easy-Up Umbrella Softbox expands into a square softbox. The recessed-front diffuser allows for more precise positioning and feathering.
The flash mounts backwards inside the softbox, shooting towards the rear for more even light and less hot spots.  Perfect for hot shoe flashes or small strobes this softbox is ready to use in seconds – no fighting with rods and speed rings. It can be broken down and stored in seconds, making it easy transport.
And an additional bonus, the price includes a nice lightweight carrying case that's big enough to add accessories such as a Flash Umbrella head adapter or even a second Umbrella softbox.  It ships directly from Hong Kong via mail, so it takes a week to arrive, but so far it's becoming one of my favorite modifiers.
