The LumiQuest Strobist Kit offers three of the favorite LumiQuest light modifier products of David Hobby, author of "The Strobist" blog. This kit includes the Promax Softbox III, the FXtra Compact Gel Holder with 8 Rosco Gels and two UltraStraps, a secure non-adhesive mounting strap, all in a convenient storage wallet.
If you want to expand your portable flash techniques, this kit is a good place to start. The Softbox III is approximately 20 times the size of a portable flash head, which means the light produced will cover a wide area and have very soft shadows.
The FXtra is a gel holder with 8 gels, including gels for balancing your strobe with incandescent and fluorescent light, plus red, blue and yellow special effects gels. In addition, to attach your accessories to your flash, two UltraStraps are included, which apply a constant 3 lb of pressure to the flash for a secure fit.
