NONE of the above

About 5 years ago, I shot this comparison at 20' to subject, with a 5x7" softbox and with a 16x20" softbox...to show that although 20' is over 13X the short dimension of the softbox -- and theoretically NOT 'soft' any more, this is what you get
... from the larger softbox which is '3 times as soft' as the smaller softbox (16" / 5")!

Appreciate the honesty, which is why I come here. This kind of replies sure as heck won't get from BH or Adorama or probably other stores.

To the OP. I don't know what you ended up buying, buy my suggestion would be to go ahead and get a monolight now because that's where you are going to end up anyway to keep from spending monies twice.

Methodical, I miss a sale during the Christmas/New Year sale on a monolight. Will hold off if the sale returns. I did get a soft box for my existing speedlite. Will not get rid of it just yet. Will just add to what I have.

HelenOster, thanks for that. I will definitely ask you before.
