The LumiQuest ProMax System allows 80% of the light to bounce off the ceiling while 20% is redirected forward as fill light. The system includes interchangeable white, gold and silver inserts as well as a removable frosted diffusion screen. The ProMax System will give you studio-like control in a convenient kit that attaches in seconds with touch fastener tabs and folds flat for storage in a sturdy pouch.

The 80-20 allows for ceiling bounce with 20% fill.
White insert provides a neutral bounce surface when no ceiling is available.
Gold insert warms the light for late afternoon fill.
Silver insert adds a more specular look to the highlights while maintaining shadow softness.
Light loss varies between 1 - 2 stops, depending on insert used, and the height of the ceiling.

    This is a great product. Just got mine few weeks ago for Christmas. It really helps with different lighting situations that you may find yourself in. I have found that combined with an "Omni Bounce" it really helps soften the light. You do lose a lot of light output but as long as your not trying to light the whole room with one flash, and just lighting your subject and is wonderful.

    The light panels that you get are nice to have as well. Again when using the light panels it is really nice with "Omni Bounce" not so harsh. You still get a "flat feeling" to your light but you lose a lot of glare on your subject.

    All in all, really great product for the price.

    I just really wish they would set their 80-20 system up like they have the quick bounce, so you can switch from vertical to horizonal and still bounce your flash. I have been able to mount my ProMax system like the quik bounce, but it becomes some what unstable.

    Not sure about how durable the diffuser will be, thought the insert cards and 80/20 body seem to be substantial enough to last. "Made in China"

    Looks better than my Hobby-esque cardboard and tape version, which ultimately is why I bought it --- no need to look thrifty when the event coordinator is paying for great photography. :)

    Would be better if all LumiQuest modifiers included their strap instead of the velcro tape tabs they throw in the box.

    Overall, I'll get my money's worth out of this 80/20 kit. Wish I would have had hands on before I ordered it online, but that was my choice. It's okay now, so I'll have to see if it survives more than the 6 events I've used it for in the last two weeks. Time will tell.

    Just be aware that this kit is like plastic. Reminds me of toys from the 1970s.

          I use this for events where large groups of people need to be photographed together, not portrait style, but step and repeat, gala tables etc..

          This was easy to put together, changing the modifiers was simple and it packs down to almost nothing. A great buy!

            Comments about LumiQuest ProMax 80-20 System - Six Piece Flash Light Modification Kit:

            Many years ago I created something similar out of cardboard, to help light social photos at night. I found it gave a great soft front lighting, as well as giving plenty of light for the background.
            Today I find myself doing a bit more event photography, and it's not very cool carrying some cardboard thing on top of your flash. Doesn't look professional at all, until I found the ProMax kit by LumiQuest.
            It may not be as large as the one I made myself, but it's a compromise I'm willing to take. It looks neat and professional, not something that was homemade. Lighting from it is very good, and packs up pretty easy.

              Comments about LumiQuest ProMax 80-20 System - Six Piece Flash Light Modification Kit:

              A ceiling bounce with a diffusion dome is nice if you have a white ceiling, but in many cases a ceiling bounce won't give you catchlights in a subject's eyes. The heart of the ProMax system is the 80 20, which bounces 80% of the light off the ceiling, and pops 20% forward to give you reliable catchlights. If you don't happen to have a ceiling to bounce off of you can add a white, gold, or silver reflector from the ProMax kit to give you almost the effect of a softbox. If you add the small diffusor screen you end up with a small softbox.The whole point is that this very small, very light, very easy to carry system can get you out of all sorts of bad situations. Don't leave home without one.

                I love how soft the light from the flash becomes.It is very versatile from bounce to reflection. It does not take up a lot of space.
                A ultra strap inclusion would have been nice.

                Comments about LumiQuest ProMax 80-20 System - Six Piece Flash Light Modification Kit:

                When you are in an odd space with terrible lighting and a hotshoe flash, the ProMax 80-20 system is a versatile "get out of jail free" godsend. Though it will not replace a softbox, large diffusion panel or umbrella with the same level of quality and control of modification, the 80-20 System is all in a small very flat wallet that can fit into the smallest camera bag or even a suit coat pocket. You can always have it on hand without adding any weight or volume to your kit on hand especially when traveling light. It will do just enough to finesse your flash either on camera or off camera handheld with a short cord to create great professional results. The build quality is moderate to good which is very acceptable given its light compact design and relatively inexpensive price.

                When using a hotshoe flash I ALWAYS bring this along

                          I use it on my Metz 58AF2 for Pentax, l love the design of this kit which providing different combinations that for various situation.

                          What I like:
                          - As mentioned, the combinations are great for use in different situation.
                          - Easy to carry(come with case in reasonable size).
                          - Good performance.

                          What I don't like:
                          - It's a bit expensive.

                            I purchased this kit anticipating a family trip where much time would be spent outdoors without the benefit of good lighting or a ceiling to bounce a flash off of. The kit comes in a thin wallet that easily slid into my already stuffed bag and was a cinch to assemble on the fly.

                            I used the various pieces in different combinations throughout the trip and was pleased with the results - this kit helped soften the flash both outside and indoors and helped me take better pictures.

                            While the kit is light and compact, it does stand tall on the flash, which resulted in drawing a bit of attention in public places. It's a small price to pay for better shots.

                            I personally feel that if you're going to get any of the flash attachments out there and can only get one, go with this one!!! It's a great bounce, the 80-20 works really well with my style of shooting. The optional cards to make it full on or to even change the quality of light makes a great addition.

                            You do looking like a fool walking around with it though. It's like a lacrosse stick in your hands... I use it when the built in bounce card on my flash isn't getting the results I want. It folds flat and is easy to keep in the bag. Comes with a little flap/pouch/case whatever you want to call it to hold all the pieces together.

                                    I read countless reviews on this product and other similar ones. I am not nearly as enthusiastic as some, but it mostly does the job. The coverage distance is less than I expected using the bounce, but I adjusted my shooting accordingly. I wish there was an insert that is mid-way between the silver and gold, because in some cases the gold was too yellow but the silver was too bright (and the white or diffuser just weren't appropriate).

                                      I bought this kit for an indoor wedding in a small church. I couldn't setup my usual lights on stands so I needed something to soften the on-camera light instead. This kit is excellent. I mostly used the 80-20 bounce accessory with the white card. I shot the entire wedding and reception with it. The light was soft, very pleasing, and looked natural and even. The silver and gold cards are much harder light sources, but the gold accessory is outstanding for evening weddings or events.

                                      The kit is very well made also. The 80-20 bounce accessory is durable with thick plastic. The kit is very well constructed.

                                      The whole kit folds up very small and includes a very nice billfold-style case to keep it stored nicely. Overall, this is a very good kit. Highly recommend.

                                        I bought this for taking photos at events (parties, etc.) as well as taking photos of my pet reptiles for selling purposes.

                                        Before I found this item I really, really needed something to cut back on harsh shadows for the reptiles specifically, because when I would take macro photos of them it would have such harsh outlines that were distracting from the quality of each of the creatures (or at least it was that way for me since I am artistically inclined). I bought this after doing a little research and listening to some suggestions and it works wonderfully. It illuminates my animals so well to show their true colors without being too washed out.

                                        I also used this for taking photos of people at a baby shower the weekend I got it and it was great in illuminating their faces just enough so that it made everyone look good.

                                        I have not used the gold and silver inserts but I can't wait until I get a situation to do so. I highly recommend this product just like everyone else who reviewed it. =)
