Re: Westcott Orb or Apollo Medium Softbox?


The Apollo can just about do a full length shot with a bit of darkening of the feet and can cover two people, if you need more coverage than that the Orb may be a better choice.

One thing I forgot to mention that applies to both is that you really want a TTL capable trigger so that you can manually adjust the power remotely, reaching inside it to change the power level each time is annoying. Also there is no grid available for the apollo (and I suspect the orb suffers the same)

If you do want the Orb I'd be tempted to find a way to use a silver PLM with diffuser fabric (assuming you are using speedlights, strobes are obvs no issue) since you will probably save some cash and get two modifiers in one.
