This Impact Diffuser Sock is a heat-resistant (see note), 18" nylon fabric light softener ringed with strong elastic for a snug fit around metal strobe head reflectors. The diffuser softens the light output and reduces it by 1 stop.

Diffuser Socks are stackable, offering the opportunity to increase the diffusion effect while reducing the light output.

Note! Intended for use on flash heads or fluorescent sources. Do not use on continuous hot light sources.

      I built my own beauty light which has an 18" front. This diffuser fit perfectly and softened the light to give me the options I wanted. There isn't anything complicated about a diffusion sock but this fit the bill.

      Comments about Impact 18" Diffuser Sock:

      Too bad the Impact VA903 set didn't come with the diffuser socks. Glad I bought one and wish I would have bought one for each light. I rigged diffuser material from a diffuser frame I already owned, for the other light, but the color is much better from the one with the 18" Impact Diffuser Sock. Now will purchase the other one. (Trying to pinch pennies this time.)Live and learn.

        Very nice product. Bought this for my 18in beauty dish and it does a nice job of diffusing the light and softing the shadows alittle bit more than bare flash from dish would give you. Also keep it on to to help protect front of dish.

                        This is half the price of the Dynalite diffuser sock, and I can't tell the difference. Save your self $25 and buy this one.

                            The diffuser socks fit perfectly on my Impact Daylight Floodlights. Much better than taping old undershirts to diffuse the light. Should have bought them a long time ago!
