Honl Photo 1/4" Speed Grid for Speed System

You Pay: $29.95
Product Highlights
  • For Shoe Mount or Handle Mount
  • Tightens Light Beam

The HonlPhoto 1/4" Speed Grid is part of the Honl Speed System, which allows you to add a line of different light modifiers to your flash unit. The 1/4" Speed Grid attaches to the Speed Strap (offered separately), and dramatically narrows the beam of light that's put out by your shoe mount or handle mount flash. The effect is a small circle of light, with the size depending on flash-to-subject distance.

Two versions are available, one with 1/4" grids and one with 1/8" grids. The 1/8" version produces a spot a few degrees narrower then the 1/4" version.

Ideal for dramatic lighting effects
Made of rugged ABS/polycarbonate
Dimensions 3.5 x 2.25" (approx. 89 x 58mm)

    I've used the grid for 1, 2 and three person portraits, on a hair light, and have been satisfied with the results. Adjusting the height allows me to widen the effect with the expected decrease in intensity. I need to be mobile and this let's me pack up and move as needed.

    I bought two for my SB600s and they don't fit snuggly on the flashes however they do stay on and haven't fallen off, yet. It does fit a lot better on my SB700. There are only two points of contact to the strap and no matter how hard you try to tighten it down it still seems flimsy. It would be nice if they added more contact points, perhaps the top and bottom as well as the side so the grid doesn't slide over and misalign. And they are not cheap to buy.

        Comments about Honl Photo 1/4" Speed Grid for Speed System:

        As a lighting control these grid units are effective, however the velcro mount system with just the two straps that are not flush with the side of the strobes makes it difficult to adhere the grid flush with the strobe face. The result is light is directed towards the ground as the grid flops around. I added an addition velcro strap to the top which helps, but that should be included with the unit to stabilize it. I am also going to experiment with making a template of the outline of the strobe face, transferring it to the grip and then using a router to cut in to the grid about 1/8 inch so the grid seats firmly on the strobe face. Again, this should be a feature that Honl offers so the grids are strobe model specific.

          Great way to narrow the beam of the flash.
          Not thrilled about having to buy the velcro master attachment for the flash so I just got some black hair scrunchies and created a DIY holder.

          Great for hairlight and lighting backgrounds. Very easy to attach and set up with the speed strap. Seems a little flimsy however and I feel if it ever gets dropped or has something dropped on it, the honeycomb will break quite easily. Hopefully, I'll never find out.

          This product is very well built. Another advantage is that it can fit almost any speedlight existing. The beam of light is of nice quality and you don't loose too much light. Perfect for the speedlighter

                  I went with this since I'm already invested in the Honl system. It says you have to have the Honl Speed Strap but you can use any stick-on velcro. I mostly use it to narrow my flash down for a hair-light.

                          I got this thinking it was going to be the best thing since slice bread, but no. Since they are trying to produce a "Fit All" situation, it lacks the sturdiness that's needed to stay in place. It's very VERY flimsy and does not look professional at all with it hanging half off your flash. I recommend Interfit's version over this.

                            Provides a softer focused light, with no light spill, on areas of interiors I shoot in real estate.

                            Good but expensive

                              Nice to have the convenience of a grid spot being so small.
                              Be careful packing it so you don't scrunch the grid

                              I've used the grid for 1, 2 and three person portraits, on a hair light, and have been satisfied with the results. Adjusting the height allows me to widen the effect with the expected decrease in intensity. I need to be mobile and this let's me pack up and move as needed.

                                Lightweight grid controls light from a strobe nicely.
