Product Highlights
  • Part of the Honl Speed System
  • Use as a Reflector or Snoot
  • Produces Warm Skin Tones
  • Made of Tough Ballistic Nylon
  • Requires HonlPhoto Speed Strap

The HonlPhoto 8" Speed Snoot/Reflector (Gold-Silver) is part of the Honl Speed System, which allows you to add a line of different light modifiers to your flash unit. This 8" Gold-Silver Reflector/Snoot gives a pleasing warm skin tone to portraits, similar to a warm sun-glow and comparable to using a 1/4 CTO filter. Use the HonlPhoto Speed Strap (not included) to quickly attach and remove the Speed Snoot to your flash.

It also converts to a snoot to concentrate the light from your shoe-mount flash for dramatic cinematic lighting. It is perfect for everything from dramatic portraits to concentrating light on background elements. Speed Snoots are made of tough ballistic nylon and are adjustable to fit a wide variety of flashes, including Canon's 430 to 580 Speedlites and Nikon's SB24 to SB900 Speedlights, as well as the Vivitar 285.

        Better Snoot than Reflector

          Comments about Honl Photo 8" Speed Snoot/Reflector (Gold-Silver):

          As a nice portable snoot, this gets 5 stars and a glowing review.As a reflector? Well, maybe in a pinch but it's not really suited for that. In my experience it's extremely subtle as a reflector, but works fantastic as a snoot. I use it with Nikon SB-910 and SB-700 flashes.It's well constructed and I use it with the Honl speed strap. It stores very nicely opened flat in any of the large flat pockets of my camera bags, especially those designed for laptops.I've heard some folks have a problem getting it to roll into a tube, but I have no problems with that whatsoever. I have more trouble getting it to mount effectively as a reflector (it seems to have a mind of its own!).I'd rather see this sell for about $10 less, or at least include the Honl speed strap. But then again you could pay $30 for an adjustable snoot that doesn't double as a reflector, so... I guess it's not that bad.

              I use this product with my lamp Canon speedlight with 54D Mark II and I think me photos are better illuminated then early. I have the small problem with too much flexibility.

                I didn't have the 8" Speed/Snoot a week before it saved me on a portrait shoot in a very cluttered room. Love the compact nature. It folds up and fits perfectly in my ThinkTank Retrospective 30. I love the Honl system.

                Use either the gold or black side as a snoot, reflector or sudo barn door. On a speed light it is quick and easy to use.

                    This is vey well made and does a great job as both a reflective bounce (adds a nice warmth to the light) and as a snoot. The fact that is rolls up and is portable gives is enough for me to get that over the standard hard plastic snoot. Like Honl's other products, this is very well made, but does require the purchase of a Speedstrap to attach it to the flash. I already have a bunch of his other products so I have Speedstraps, but if this is your first Honl, don't forget to add one of those to the cart as well (except for the Traveler8 softbox which comes with a strap).

                          I bought this snoot to help throw enough soft light during night football games. I have used it during last Friday nights CIF game and got some very nice results. I did not get one picture with red-eye and I took about four hundred pictures. I am vey happy with the results, this product really works well.
