I got an octobox!  I’ve wanted one of these for years; the Apollo Orb was just released and it’s unique design makes it perfect for Speedlites, avoiding two major issues that most other octoboxes face: differing mounting rings and PITA setup.

This isn’t a full review – haven’t had it long enough for that.  So far it’s been on one shoot, and the only thing I can say for sure is, I don’t know how to use the damn thing yet.  It isn’t quite like a regular softbox.  Practice will make perfect.  More to come!
