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. Very versatile for artistic lighting, Photoflex gear is also easy to set up and pack when shooting on location.
