Are you looking for light modifiers on your portable flash? This is your perfect kit! With Falconeyes’ new Universal Adapter Mount combined with 6 types of light modifier that would cater your various studio needs. These handy modifiers are the honeycombs, barn door, conical snoot, snoot grids, mini-reflector with plates, color gels, globe diffuser and a soft box.
Honeycomb and Soft Box
For producing precise and direct light with your flash, you can’t miss the honeycomb. It has a 10cm diameter at 25° which generates extraordinary effects to your images. On the other hand, the soft box included with the kit measures at 20cm x 30cm and will give you an overall softer lighting on your subjects. This soft box is highly portable as it can be folded flat for easy transport. To setup the box, simply expand the four corners using the four sturdy plastic rods. There are even metal tips at the end of each rod to strengthen the box. The Soft Box has a white-coloured cloth lining for a consistent light bouncing surface. Aside from the included milky white diffuser cloth, there are 4 other colours to choose from: yellow, orange, blue and white.
Barn Door, Mini-Reflector, and Conical Snoot
If you are into versatility, you would use the Barn Door to control the spill of light from your portable flash unit. This is useful in situation such as modifying the lighting on your studio backdrop. You can create a soft and uniformed light by using the Mini Reflector, which is also commonly referred to a beauty dish. It also comes with 3 different color inner plates for different effects. This modifier has a diameter of 17cm and is often used in combination with a reflector or additional light source to produce fill lighting. You may find these products in our web shop under the Reflector section. Alternatively, you may use the Conical Snoot for creating mood lighting on the backdrop or giving a defining edge to your subjects. There are 2 grid sizes to choose from, 3mm or 5mm hexagons and can be attached to 55mm-rim of the snoot.
For purists who like to create a bare bulb lighting effect with their subjects, they would love the Globe Diffuser. Some also refer to it as a dome diffuser. With a 15cm diameter, the globe diffuser produces light similar to a conventional light bulb where light travels in all directions. It would be a good choice for outdoor shoots such as wedding where the light is extended well above the subjects for a natural lighting effect. Whilst using this modifier in an indoor environment, the light can be bounced off from surrounding walls and ceiling to create fill lighting.
If you have multiple flashes, you can purchase a few more Universal Adapter Mounts to equip more modifiers to you set up.
For greater flexibility in controlling light we would recommend using the Lighting Kit wirelessly via a flash trigger system such as the Cactus V5.
