    Default Softbox

    Is it necessary to get a softbox for a flash? How much does a softbox cost? (approx.) Thanks =D

    Not really... it all depends on what type of shooting you do with your flash. And location.

    A softbox works best when it's big as it's able to diffuse the light wider and more evenly. But for a small flash unit, it's difficult to spread it out to a large extent. Thus the effect may not be as good as when you're using proper strobes.
