LumiQuest Quik Bounce Light Modifier for Shoe Mount Flashes

You Pay: $43.95
Product Highlights
  • Made in the USA

The LumiQuest Quik Bounce enlarges and redirects light from your shoe-mounted flash at a 90° angle to the direction the flash is facing, like many flash diffusers upon the market.  However, LumiQuest listened to input from wedding/event photographers shooting with their popular Pocket Bouncer, and cleverly designed Quik Bounce to be used in a position which (with flashes that both bounce and swivel) allows quick exchange between horizontal/vertical images with consistent lighting and no bracket necessary.

You mount Quik Bounce to the side of the face of your flash, and swivel your flash head so that the thickest part of the flash head is parallel to the optical axis (instead of being perpendicular to the optical axis, the flash head's 'normal' position).  This way, you can just use the bounce hinge to adjust the flash position when making a vertical composition, keeping the flash diffusion surface consistently above the flash head.

Further adding Quik Bounce's sophistication, there are a pair of "barn doors" built in to the normal diffusion surface which can be opened whenever you've got a low ceiling above you.  Doing so allows 80% of the light output to emerge from the ceiling, greatly softening the light source and allowing the light to originate primarily from a more natural-looking location.

      Love my Quik Bounce. Better than most of the competition.

      It bounces well when used at 100%, and the opening helps with a sort-of 80-20 effect when the doors are open. It changes quickly from vertical to horizontal.

      I use an additional piece of black velcro around the three attachment points-it makes the unit more secure and cost only pennies.

      My only real negative is the two doors. It is a two-hand job to open them and get them to stick out of the way for the 20% shots. I would prefer one door. In fact, I wrote the company and suggested this, and they responded that several others had a similar request and they they were looking at it.

      And as to the first reviewer, no, I would not bet that it works well in extreme cold,but most of us don't live where it gets to -8 F. Most plastics don't like sub-zero temperatures.

      does what it is intended to

      your photos are improved with the quick bounce. But attaching it for the first time is not really easy. I don't like the velcro fastener you have to stick on the flash. Read complete review

      But I like the way it folds down.

        I used this on my SB 910 for a dancing and comedy show in a fairly dark club. The combined 80% bounce with 20% fill really worked out well. I got much better photos compared to the last time where I just bounced of the ceiling.

              Does a great job of softening shadows, esp. for a modifier this small and easy to use. The 80/20 flap on top (for bounce or non bounce)is very handy for fast location shooting. This is a really nice light modifier at a very reasonable price.

              Comments about LumiQuest Quik Bounce Light Modifier for Shoe Mount Flashes:

              I was covering a four day event at the Javits center in NY where the space was huge and there were no walls or ceilings to bounce off of (until you got to the small conference rooms, but then you can use any modifier you want -for this review, I'll focus on places with no bounce surfaces.)

              Since I was taking photos of people in a confined space (the sheer volume of people would make it feel like a sardine can) with no ceilings, the choice was clearly going to be between the Quik Bounce and the Demb flip-it.

              I picked up the Quik Bounce given the pace of the event - I knew I wouldn't have time to keep fiddling with the Demb and I needed to set it and forget it or risk missing shots.

              And you know what? It worked like a charm in that big open space. It also worked really well at after party spaces where the walls were painted black (no bounce surfaces there either.)

              But there was one thing bugging me after reviewing my first day's photos. The light looked way too harsh since I was forced to be really close to the subjects.

              To remedy this, I concocted a homemade diffuser mimicking the Demb (I used a white'ish coffee can lid and cut it to fit just in front of the flash.) That helped soften the immediate light emanating from flash to subject, giving me much better results on the following days of shooting.

              If you're pressed for time and will be shooting in a madhouse with no usable bounce surface, this is the product to get. Otherwise, just use a black piece of soft foam like Neil V. Niekirk suggests. As an improvement to the function of the Quik Bounce, I've found it infinitely useful to place some kind of diffusor in front of it to make it more like a hybrid between it and a Demb product.

                  I take lots of indoor pictures of large groups. This product spreads out and softens the light. I use it on a large oly flash (50R). I didn't apply the Velcro tabs to the flash and instead used large rubber bands around the flash and a piece of Velcro on top of that. It works ok. I would prefer a design without the Velcro on the flash, the reason I gave only 4 stars.

                  The quick bounce works great when you want to bounce your light, and have some for fill.

                  The one problem I have with the quick bounce is, it's evident that the doors will eventually wear out.

                    I'm not normally a fan of on-camera flash modifiers, but I've had to shoot indoor events lately where the ceilings have either been too high for bounce, or the walls & ceiling are an off color that prevents using bounce flash. For those situations this is a great tool for your gear bag. I recomend ordering the accessory quick mount strap for easy on/off without the need for the adhesive pads on your flash head.

                          Would not want to be caught without this! So versatile with the option of opening the top flaps. The Quik Bounce really does save the day when switching from landscape to portrait orientation. Use this at weddings where this isn't always a wall to bounce from or the ceiling is too high. Like it much better than the Stofen.

                          Comments about LumiQuest Quik Bounce Light Modifier for Shoe Mount Flashes:

                          Best for on-camera flash, where you want to light the scene with the flash, and you need to quickly switch from horizontal to vertical.

                          It reduces the flash output too much for outdoor, full-sun fill flash (at least with an SB-700 beyond 10').

                          It goes on the flash quickly, but you don't want to count on switching from a fill-flash arrangement (flash pointed ahead) to the Quik Bounce arrangement in a hurry.

                          You can quickly switch from all light forward to letting some go to the ceiling.

                          Works best fairly close to the subject. Getting too far away makes the larger light source seem smaller, so the softening effect goes away.

                          If you use it for what it does best, you'll be pleased. While it seems a bit expensive, compare the price to a flash frame plus a diffuser. Because you flip the flash up when you shoot vertically, you don't need the flash frame.

                          I recently used this product on a wedding that was outdoors for the portraits and indoors for the reception. I use this product three ways: when I was inside I opened up the top barn doors which lets 80% of the light bounce off of the ceiling or wall to light the subject and the pocket effect lets 20% of the light bounce straight onto the subject to fill in the shadows under the eyes, nose, mouth; second, I use this on my flash while holding it to the side for side lighting outside sometimes with the barn doors closed for more light and sometimes with the barn doors closed for a softer lighting effect; and third I use it inside or outside on my flash mount when I simply do not have enough light or no ceiling to bounce my flash off of and it softens the light somewhat for a decently softened light effect for portratis...now it's not by any means really soft for lighting, it's just softer than straight on flash but does give great results when you need to use it when no bounce surface is available, but when I use it when my flash is to the side for side lighting outside then it does soften the light quite nicely for beautiful wedding portraiture!

                              I use this product on my SB700 to manipulate the direction and coverage of my flash. I love how it mounts sideways. The only thing I see wrong with it is sticking the adhesive velcro on the flash directly, but I bought the UltraStrap so I don't need to stick anything on my flash.

                              Comments about LumiQuest Quik Bounce Light Modifier for Shoe Mount Flashes:

                              I'm a pro photographer and do a fair amount of event photography. More often than not, bouncing my flash off the ceiling is not an option, so I looked into the Quik Bounce for these situations.

                              The Quik Bounce gets the job done. The quality of the resulting photos is better than straight flash, in most cases. It's not as soft a bounce light as I would like, but I'd rather have it in my bag than not. I got consistent softer light that was effective. It does the job, as long as you don't expect it to be similar to ceiling bounce.

                              What I like: the size & light weight, how it folds flat, the supplied velcro straps and how secure it attached, and the optional "doors" that allow some light to bounce to the ceiling if you want.

                              What I didn't like: as I mentioned, I would like to have seen softer light coming from it, but given it's size, it did a good job.

                              I'd recommend it as an optional item in your bag if you shoot events and have to move around. It was a worthwhile investment.

                                I needed something for a friend's wedding. I am not a pro photographer so needed a something for bounce flash and at times when no ceiling was available. It worked perfectly and eliminated most shadows, oneo of my major concerns.

                                  your photos are improved with the quick bounce. But attaching it for the first time is not really easy. I don't like the velcro fastener you have to stick on the flash.
                                  But I like the way it folds down.

                                  Love my Quik Bounce. Better than most of the competition.

                                  It bounces well when used at 100%, and the opening helps with a sort-of 80-20 effect when the doors are open. It changes quickly from vertical to horizontal.

                                  I use an additional piece of black velcro around the three attachment points-it makes the unit more secure and cost only pennies.

                                  My only real negative is the two doors. It is a two-hand job to open them and get them to stick out of the way for the 20% shots. I would prefer one door. In fact, I wrote the company and suggested this, and they responded that several others had a similar request and they they were looking at it.

                                  And as to the first reviewer, no, I would not bet that it works well in extreme cold,but most of us don't live where it gets to -8 F. Most plastics don't like sub-zero temperatures.

                                  I'm a photographer mainly working in the high Arctic. Well, i bought this item some weeks ago. It produces softer shadows like promised and it is very easy to handle. I like the possibility to flip the flash 90° in a part of a second when switching from shooting landscape to portrait.
                                  BUT: As i work in cold conditions - this item is not usable here.
                                  Even in ONLY -6°C i breaks like glass, not talking about my last shooting here in the kindergarden when we had outside -18°C and strong wind.
                                  I ended up in covering the entire Quick Bounce in Duck Tape what helps a little.
                                  The only one solution of using it in the cold is to put it on your flash and not to take it off the flash until you get inside again - otherwise it will fall apart!!!

                                  Comments about LumiQuest Quik Bounce Light Modifier for Shoe Mount Flashes:

                                  Like most photographers I'm always looking at getting the best results with flash and have tried several defusers. This one has met my expectations. I've used it for event photography (high school basketball) and am very pleased. I use it in the 20% position to enhance the available light. Fits easily into any camera bag.
