The Metz Mini Octagon Softbox range is designed for use with all compact hot-shoe mounted flashguns. They are ideal for use with all types of portrait photography giving a softer more natural light and a round catchlight in the subject's eyes. The included strap simply fits around the flashgun head and the softbox attaches to that. The softbox folds down flat when not in use and can be stored in the supplied carry bag. The Metz Mini Softbox is available in three sizes 34cm, 20cm and 15cm and there is also a rectangular version available.
