Having used Photoflex gear for over twenty five years, I have always relied on their excellent build quality and performance. All soft boxes, umbrellas and reflectors are color correct for perfect color temperature and made with state-of-the-art fabrics and construction.

Photoflex was my first choice for light modifiers when I started building my own studio arsenal almost twenty years ago. I still have that first Medium Softbox, and use it often. Photoflex Octodomes produce wonderful light, and with a grid installed I find I can control almost any on-location lighting situation. Photoflex reflectors in my equipment case, too, have been with us the entire ride - doing their job as well as on Day One.
