LumiQuest Ultrasoft Pocket Bouncer

You Pay: $27.95

The LumiQuest Ultrasoft enlarges and redirects the light at a 90° angle from the flash and then further softens the light by passing it through a frosted diffuser.

The Ultrasoft is designed to achieve an extremely soft look with minimal shadows. You can use it with an individual flash or to softly illuminate the background in a multiple flash setup. Ideal for close-ups and portraits, and attaches to the flash head in seconds with the included "hook-and-loop" tabs.

Light Loss Approximately 2-1/3 stops
Dimensions Folds flat to 4.5 x 7.25"
Weight 3.2 oz

      The Pocket Bouncer may work adequately, but the use of hook & loop (velcro) straps to hold it together and on the flash unit is quite a bit unprofessional looking. The Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce is a much better choice....and less costly.

        I bought this to replace another, cheaper on-flash, portable diffuser. This is much better. It sits on the flash securely and folds flat for easy portability. I'm very satisfied.

        My second one. Used the first for years, not site if that was the same company but this one is great. The adhesive for the Velcro seems to be sticking well and so fat so awesome. I highly recommend it.

          Another innovative product from LumiQuest. Small flash soft box. A soft box or umbrella is great, but we don't always have them at hand. This item can come to your rescue. Just slip it into your bag. Does a really good job.

            I shoot Weddings, Senior Portraits, in many different locations, inside and out. I have used the LumiQuest Pocket Bounce system for many, many years. I have found nothing better to soften the flash. The lightly frosted filter in gives the images an even warm feeling. Any time I shoot with my flash I use my LumiQuest Pocket Bounce. I recommend it highly. I won't leave home without it.

              Comments about LumiQuest Ultrasoft Pocket Bouncer:

              I really like this pocket bouncer because its simple and effective, and packs really small. I usually bounce off the ceiling but with higher ceilings and and weaker flashes, I have to drop down to a lower F stop. The results are a little different, but good in a pinch.

                  It is extremely portable and small, but just dont expect it to give you great results such as bouncing flash off walls or an off camera soft box. The produce does soften the light and gets the job done when bouncing flash is just not an option.

                      This is a great little bounce. I appreciate that it is medium sized and fits in my smaller camera bag nicely when folded up. The velcro has worked nicely to attach it to my SB600. Overall it is a nice product that does what it is supposed to for a reasonable price.

                        I have used it recently on a wedding, works well but we have to remember that this is a small softbox and in this case bigger is better. Don't expect too much. I think it works better then most plastic bouncers. If you using full frame it covers up to 20mm focal length. I would recommend it.

                              It really softens the light, no harsh reflections from peoples faces. Supplies with velcro adhesive pads to attach to flash. Clean flash housing with alcohol first so adhesive will stick good.

                                This is an excellent bounce. I use it mostly for outside photography. Folds up flat and fits in my bag when not in use. I have another bounce and a softbox and I like this one much better, in fact I will probable never us the others now that I have this one.

                                  I have used the pocket bouncer for a number of years; this is a very effective alteration of the product. Takes up hardly any space, (I carry both now), does what the website claims it will do very effectively (soft, soft light), and is a bargain at the price. Where my flash goes, it goes.

                                      I bought this product before shooting a wedding. I used it all day long: portraits, group shots and at the reception. It turns my flash into nice, even, soft light. Love it!

                                      Comparing to Sto-Fen omni bounce

                                      People would be wise to ignore the review that compares this to the omni bounce. They are completely different products and the omni bounce cannot and does not do what this does. That is very bad advice.
