Product Highlights

This Impact Diffuser Sock is a heat-resistant (see note), 16" 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.

        Comments about Impact 16" Diffuser Sock:

        The defuser sock fits perfectly on my Promaster System Pro Cool Light 16" studio lights. The sock is made of quality material and softens the light while only dropping the light by one F stop. Putting on and taking off the diffuser sock is easy. I am going to buy another.

              I use this on my Profoto Widesoft reflector (Ringflash). The fit is perfect. Love the output when I need something softer.

                I use these diffusers for video production. I like the way they soften the light without giving a "lampshade" effect. If I purchase additional lighting, I'll be sure to add this diffuser to the list.

                  I actually use it with Bowens beauty dish and fits perfect, does the same (or very similar) effect to their expensive Diffuser.
