Honl Photo Gobo Bounce Card for Speed System (Black/White)

You Pay: $14.95

The HonlPhoto Gobo Bounce Card is a 4 x 7.5" two-sided bounce card, made of a tough black ballistic nylon on one side and a white polymer on the other. The white side can be used as a standard bounce card, to bounce and scatter the light output of the flash. The black side can be used to keep light from flaring into your lens when using a flash as a background or hair light.

The Gobo Bounce Card connects directly to Speed Strap (sold separately).

      I use the bounce card to diffuse light from my flash when indoors. It softens the light output for a more natural look. I use it with a Nikon SB 600 SB 900 with no attachement issues. You will need to purchase the Velcro strap to mount it to your flash. They should make it a package deal.

      I uses velcro to attach, but, it does not come with a velcro strap or pads to attach to the flash gun. It's a cheap thing, but to ask another 10 bucks for a velcro strap is not ok. Overall, a good and over priced product.

            Comments about Honl Photo Gobo Bounce Card for Speed System (Black/White):

            This is a great bounce card solution. I also own a large Rogue Flash Bender, which I also recommend, but it is too heavy to use as a handheld off camera flash set up. The Honl Photo bounce card is much more nimble and produces great results.

            I have not had great luck with using the velcro straps for these types of products, so I just added sticky back velcro to my flash unit so I don't have to worry about the strap being loose.

            Also, I love the construction of this thing. It's stiff and flexible. I can stuff it in my camera bag, sit on it, or whatever. Then I pull it out, put it on my flash and I'm ready to go.

            For the money, can't go wrong.

                  Works great as expected, simple design, grab 2 for a "barn door" effect on a flash. Use two speed lights with 2 of these barn door setups at 45deg from the rear to each side of a subject to create interesting wrap around rim light. \

                  Better constructed than expected.

                      I really like this bounce card a lot, the only bummer is that it doesn't come with the strap. I didn't realize that until I'd already gotten it [...]. That was a bummer. Otherwise I really like this.

                            This is best used as a gobo, and perfect for that. It's larger than it looks in the photo-- much wider than flash. Would be a little large for bounce card, but very effective I'm sure. It's construction is very high quality, and it could also be used as a white balance card.

                                I know its not rocket science but it's nice to see even something this simple in design can be made so well. I would recommended it.

                                I uses velcro to attach, but, it does not come with a velcro strap or pads to attach to the flash gun. It's a cheap thing, but to ask another 10 bucks for a velcro strap is not ok. Overall, a good and over priced product.

                                  As a photographer who used to like the little plastic thingy that pulls out the top of the Nikon speedlight units, when using an SB-800 as a remote off-camera unit for fill, kicker light, or background light in a travel portrait situation, I decided to try this for both its larger surface area and gobo effects. Love it! Not a lot more to say.

                                  It attaches easily, stows in virtually no space at all, and is very versatile as a lighting accessory. Nicely made, too.

                                    Easy to use and does its job well. The only negative comment I have is the price. . . very costly for what you actually are getting.

                                          I use this as a flag for a background light. Works pretty well. Could also be used in the same way for bouncing on-camera flash, either to diffuse the light, or attach it to the front, to get all bounce, and no direct light.

                                            The Honl Gobo Bounce Card and attaching strap replaced a 23 year old fill card that saw a lot of mileage. The Honl card is an excellent product that has met all my expectations for giving me fill light capability on any on-camera flash.
