Take incredible pictures with the first complete educational system for flash

TOLEDO, OH – February 27, 2012 – Westcott is excited to introduce the PocketBox, the first-ever compact flash system combined with education. The PocketBox includes: three size modifiers, a compact carry case and educational DVD.

The Round PocketBox is 8.5” wide, perfect for providing those round catch lights in the eyes. The Square PocketBox is 6” x 7” making it that perfect box for fill light while still maintaining that compact diffusion. The Rectangular PocketBox is 8” x 12”, the largest of the three which is ideal for portrait and couples.

The PocketBox modifiers are built with top-notch components featuring an ultra-reflective silver interior maximizing light output as well as a removable inner diffusion panel. The worry-free elastic strap and soft grip panels help safely secure the PocketBox to the flash. The durable black backing prevents light spill and the heavy-duty, flexible wire framework will allow your PocketBox to withstand much abuse.

Westcott has partnered with professional photographer, teacher and television personality Erin Manning, to develop the educational DVD. Erin brings her down-to-earth teaching style right to your living room and takes you along on multiple photo shoots, explaining all the ins and outs of on-camera and off-camera flash.

“I’m really excited about the PocketBox kit! It’s exactly what many have been requesting; a simple and effective way to create beautiful flash photos without carrying around a lot of bulky gear. The modifiers fit on any flash head and they all fold flat for transport. If the idea of using a flash modifier sounds challenging, the educational DVD helps you get started and guides you through the process. What could be easier than that?”

The PocketBox Kit (#268) sells for $49.90 and can be found on our website as well as at dealers across the country. To find a dealer near you, visit our website www.fjwestcott.com and click on ‘Dealer Locator’.
