Please note the flash unit and stand are not included with this listing.
PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for the softbox only and does not include a light.
PLEASE NOTE: For GODOX fitting we would not recommending using the CITI300/AD300 with the umbrella softboxes over 120cm in size. This is due to the fitting of CITI300/AD300 which may not offer strong enough support for larger softboxes. If you are planning to use a larger softbox on CITI300/AD300, we would recommend going for the speedlite fitting option as it will include our Smart Bracket. With this option you will also have the benefit that it will allow you move the light within the softbox, creating different effects.

Just what I needed with suitable quality accessories.
I was expecting another typical softbox, yet larger, so was happy to discover that the inner diffuser uses velcro instead of those annoying metal clips, and the front diffuser has a round central area and black outer area with a reflecting surface on the black part. Anyway, it's great.
