  • A more accurate review....

After reading the last review I'd like to clarify a couple of things. First is you can use a traditional strobe inside of the Apollo 50" and secondly at least as far as Nikon systems using the title system triggered with the hot shoe on say a D7000 or D700 works just fine with my sb600's and my sb900 speed light. I do own pocket wizards but they are not necessary indoors so London as you are within about 10 to 12 feet of the speed light. The speed lights are 100% inside the Apollo and zipped up tight. No problems what so ever. I should also say for the price and convenience this is a killer solution for big soft portrait light. I've had mine for over two years now and have had no problems with it at all.

  • Good product - needs a better description

When you first see the web content, it's not clear if this is a traditional speedring softbox as one might expect, and knowing that Westcott does excellent softboxes. It's not a speedring softbox. The Apollo designation, in this case means it is built on an umbrella frame. This keeps the cost down and the recessed front panel is great if you want to feather your light, but like all Apollos it puts your Speedlight inside the box making remote control impossible without expensive radio systems or cumbersome cables. Please update the description so it clearly states this is a speedlight solution, not a studio flash solution.
