    softbox:
    light softer and more controllable.
    expensive
    not so portable

    umbrella:
    light less soft compare to softbox
    not easy to control and light spill all over the place.
    cheaper
    very portable

    I picked up a $2 umbrella from Daiso. It's quite translucent and seems alright for bouncing.
