| p.1 #6 · Best small speedlite softbox for traveling? |
I find the Apollo style softboxes to pack much smaller than the Ezybox style because you don't have the "lollipop" to deal with and the softbox folds into a better shape (imo) like an umbrella rather than a reflector.
the big advantage of the Ezybox style is that you can easily access the speedlight controls. the Apollo style will also make it more difficult to use the optical flash communications if you do that, but it sounds like not since you mentioned Stratos.
so if you tend to make a lot of power adjustments to the flash, I would go with the Ezybox style (like the Cheetah linked above), but if you tend to set a power and make exposure adjustments with aperture or distance, the Apollo style is definitely my preference.
