The Interfit PortAbox 30x20cm is a real no brainer to buy, as it’s so easy to use, attach and carry – what more could you ask for?
The PortAbox is a softbox attachment that fits onto the Canon 580EX/EX II or Nikon SB600/800/900. These are the models it’s specified to fit, but it also fits on units like the latest Sigma EF-610 without affecting the AF functions of the flashgun. This particular version is the 22x16cm option with panels that open on each side. The panels are designed for use when bouncing the flash off a ceiling or wall, as when open the panels spill some light directly onto the subjects, which provides useful fill-in light and catchlights in portraits. The whole thing folds neatly into a carry case that will fit into your camera bag with ease.
