Novatron 4 Leaf Barndoor Set for All Novatron Flash Heads

B&H # NOBD4 Mfr # N4011A
In Stock
Free Expedited Shipping
You Pay: $85.68

This 4 leaf barndoor set is specifically design for use on all Novatron flash heads. It can be set horizontally, vertically, or at nearly any combination in between. A gel and diffusion holder is built in.

Barndoors, Snoots, Grids, and Filters are essential accessories for any lighting system. These devices alter the shape, intensity, or color of the light output from your flash heads. Consider them as a painter would a brush, or a sculptor would a knife, or chisel.

Use of a barndoor set will result in a shaft of light, when it is attached to the front of the reflector of your light source. The size of the shaft of light will be determined by the opening of the leaves, and the distance of the light from the subject. Rotating the barndoor set will determine the angle of the shaft of light. A 4-leaf barndoor provides more light control than a 2-leaf barndoor set.

          Comments about 4 Leaf Barndoor for all Novatron Flash Heads:

          This barndoor set is very limited in how it changes the light. It folds up very nicely and fits the the Novatron heads well too, but leaves much to be desired for light control. It makes me think the designer spent more time trying to make it fold up than control the light. Take the L-shaped folds out of the barndoors and it may have enough reach to shape the light. This was the only option I could find that fit the Novatron heads.

            Works as expected, a little expensive but most studio photography equipment is.

            Very limiting in it's ability to control light. Novatron should come up with a device that holds various degrees of grid modifiers that are available with higher end light kits.
