$58 makes it not any better than the Fong product for economy.
Size makes it no 'softer' than a 5" x 7" softbox at the same distance.

Tip: Not worth the money

That's true. Size is size. The only other things that matter are convenience and price.

You have left yourself open to some snappy replies ;).

But, staying on topic...

I pretty much agree.

There are some subtle options around varying how the light spreads and falls off which might be incorporated (it appears there isn't some variation in how much light gets though different parts of the plastic). Granted the difference in results is probably subtle if it exists at all.

I think the main selling points are a secure connection, light weight and a better looking design.

Not that I will be buying one. :)


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

I'd try one... if they sold for the same price as the one I'm using now.

I can get a pack of 50 3x5 cards at the Dollar Store for about $0.39. I pick up rubber bands free at work. Counting construction time, my modifier costs me just under one penny. I'd say that is a fair assessment of what Kobra system is worth. When it gets there, I'll order 2 of them.

A bunch of years ago, ye olde Modern Photography did an article comparing about a dozen speedlight modifiers, and the difference between them was nearly nothing.

If the subject was directly against a white wall and you looked closely, you could see a bit of difference in the shadow.

If the subject was very close to the light (no more than two or three times the effective diameter of the diffusion device) and you looked closely, you could see a bit of difference in the shadow transition.

Or if you were in a very small room with light-toned walls, it made a difference whether the device had any directionality or was bouncing light off the ceiling and all the walls.
