When you're looking for effective light diffusion while keeping things simple and fast check out the new D-Fuse Instant Pop Up Softbox for LED light panels. Like many softbox kits, the D-Fuse uses rods to create a structure and hold the diffusing material a distance away from the source. Using a unique (patent pending) design, the length of the rods found at each corner setup and break apart through strong Magnets, and the rods remain as part of the Softbox when folded up. No no loose parts to lose or misplace!

I highly suggest diffusers like this for anyone using LED Light Panels during interviews that are facing directly towards your subject. Bare LED Bulbs are pretty hard on the eyes, and the last thing you want is your subject squinting or ending up with a headache. You'll immediately see a difference in how soft the shadows are which is also more flattering for many subjects.

  

The current D-Fuse Pop Up Softbox for LED Light Panels is designed for popular 1x1 LED Panels, but they will be releasing additional sizes and adapters to fit other popular sized LED Panels as well. But seeing how it's mostly a Velcro fit, i'm sure this current version can easily be modified to use with just about anything if you can't wait for the other sizes to become available.

This is a brand new product. Right now there's a special introductory price (limited time / limited QTY), and an even better deal if you choose a 3pc combo pack. You can find the new D-Fuse Instant Pop Up LED Light Panel Softboxes over at PNCGear.com (click here).

The latest HDSLRNOW Quck Tip runs through a few different versions of the Linco Flora Fluorescent Light Kits. These are excellent lighting kits that throw soft diffused light, but they'll run a bit higher on price for the build quality and convenience they offer. The Linco lights offer quick setup portable softboxes and more robust head units that will hold up better for travel. For more quick tips, follow HDSLRNOW via Twitter.

Has anyone tried diffusing their LED panels with a cheap shoot through folding softbox used for Speedlites? These $6 dollar folding diffusion panels normally strap to the front of a portable flash, but now they are advertising it for LED video lights. Effective? Maybe, maybe not, but i'm sure it would be easier on the eyes of your subject. Could be a simple place holder for your colored gels too. Check 'em out below.
