The folks at Westcott have teamed up with educator/photographer Erin Manning to release the PocketBox flash kit, a set of three small flash-modifiers, carrying case, and an educational DVD to give you the lowdown on their use. Westcott is calling this “the first-ever compact flash system combined with education”, and the whole kit is designed to work with a relatively modest sized hot-shoe external flash unit.
The kit comes with a 8.5″ wide round modifier, a 6″x7″ “square” one, and an 8″x12″ larger, rectangular unit. All three parts have reflective silver interiors, removable inner diffusion panels, and heavy-duty wire framework. The kit will retail for an eminently reasonable $49.90, and should soon be available to purchase through Westcott’s website, or one of their dealers.
