Yes.

FWIW - I got a very similar softbox w/ bracket for less than 1/2 price on ebay and they work quite well.

ok thanks, another question:
this is a quote from the store I want to buy the softbox from:

"NOTE: Speedring required."

The store doesn't have a "whats in the box" thingy like B&H for example, so I can't say if I need to purchase anything else.
I don't understand why do I need a speedring, if I already have a bracket from the packging? im confused..

I'd say they don't have the speedring included like the B&H kit does.. I'd buy the B&H kit. The speed ring is between 25-35 dollars on ebay, and you don't know if it works with the soft box if you buy them separate.. so go with the B&H kit, JMHO.

For what it's worth. I believe Lastolite is phasing out the LS2462M2 Hot Shoe Softbox in favor of the new Ezybox II line. The new Ezyboxes use the same softbox to fit speedlights and studio strobes. You just buy the appropriate mounting bracket for the type of light you wish to use it with. That bracket then works with all the new series II Ezyboxes. Here is a link to the new bracket for the series II boxes: http://www.lastolite.c​om …-II-speedlite-bracket.php (external link)

You would purchase whatever Ezybox II softbox you wanted to meet your size and shape requirements and then purchase the speedlight bracket I linked to in my earlier message to use it with small flashes. You could then later purchase a different mount for other lights and use it with the same softbox.

So if I got it correctly, I won't be able to use the softbox out-of-the-box? I would have to buy some bracket for whatever light source im using?

Yes. I don't remember the exact pricing though, but it seems like the combined cost of the softbox plus the cost of the speedlight mounting adapter was not substantially higher than the cost of the discontinued Ezybox Hotshoe model where the bracket is already factored into the price. Don't get me wrong. The Ezybox Hotshoe has a lot of fans. I just wanted you to be aware of the newer model as an alternative. I too had been considering the 24 inch Ezybox Hotshoe but became a little concerned when I could not find them listed on the Lastolite website any longer. That was when I discovered they had replaced it with the new model.

Ok. Had some time to do some browsing. Here are the links to the items you'd need if you went with the new model.

Comparable size Softbox: http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …1_ezybox_ii_squ​are_m.html (external link)

Speedlight Bracket: http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …t_bracket_for_e​zybox.html (external link)

Looks like it comes out to $14.95 more for the new model over the discontinued model. $164.90 instead of $149.95. For your $14.95 you also get a bracket that can hold two flash units if needed and also includes an integrated tilting umbrella bracket you would have to add to the cost of the older model for a true comparison.

I'll get down off my soapbox now. I didn't intend to become a Lastolite salesman. ;) I'm sure you would be happy with either product.
