Hi all,

I have the Flashpoint StreakLight 360 and I'm looking for a good softbox that will fit it? I know I need to buy an adapter, but not too sure which one?

Thanks,

MTM

Bowens mount is a widely used standard.

If on a small budget .. works well for what it cost.. hotspots can be annoying
But it's decent

If you have or want to use soft boxes with speed rings there are two versions of the Bracket shown. One for Bowens S mount adapter rings and one for Elinchrom adapter rings. If you plan to get other Flashpoint lights in the Godox X system family the Bowens bracket is the better option.

If you want something light, compact and easy to setup, the Westcott Apollo type soft boxes work well. They will fit onto the 360 via the umbrella mount that screws onto the head. Putting the flash tube at the center of the modifier.

I've found that this mini boom is handy for providing enough off-set to make it easy to tip the modifier farther down.
