Product Highlights
  • Studio-Quality Light From Small Flash
  • Umbrella, Diffuser, Adapter Included
  • Gold & Silver Discs for Color Control

If you're looking for better light using your on-camera flash, Photek's Softlighter Hot Shoe Diffuser Kit (46") fits the bill: you get a 46" umbrella with a white interior and black removable cover, a diffuser panel with an opening for a hot shoe flash (not included) and the umbrella shaft, a set of Velcro tabs for the flash head, a hot shoe umbrella/light stand adapter with an adjustable hot shoe locking plate for mounting the flash/umbrella to a stand, and a set of silver and gold discs for modifying the color of the light. This setup gives you a broad, soft studio-quality light using only a battery-powered "on-camera" flash.

        Comments about Photek Softlighter Hot Shoe Diffuser Kit (46"):

        When I setup my new umbrella,instantly after first shot I had to change name "umbrella"for soft box.It cover so perfectly and soft my model,that all problems was gone in 1/125 of sec.Very easy and quick instalation made my new tool very mobile.I hate feel wind and cold,and lose time with my equipment on the location,so always I take time to make find out only the best and more reliable staff with me.BH they know that I am not easy,but if I get what I need,I always can,t stop to buy.Its my main light,and all around I fill up with rapid box,26"hecto,and also two hear,and strip box from the same Westcott rapid box serii.All this pieces perfectly fit in my bag,and very fast go out...

            Easy to use. Nice and light-weight but could see how any significant wind would topple and damage this. will have to invest in something to stabilize it. Nice results in diffusing speed light

              I use this product for portrait photography. This item is easy to setup and is versatile. Being able to use it as an umbrella reflector and a diffuser is awesome.

                    Comments about Photek Softlighter Hot Shoe Diffuser Kit (46"):

                    This is the crown jewel of my streamlined kit. I only have gear that is easy to setup and tear down (No soft boxes allowed!)

                    Although this is my most complex piece of kit, I still can't get over how much one can do with it. From regular bounce umbrella to shoot-thru, to brolly box, to pseudo-octo box and the option of having silver, gold, black (gold reversed) reflector inserts. I will never run out of uses for this thing.

                    It is the best quality umbrella I own (vs. photoflex and impact) - as soon as I took it out of the kit the built quality was apparent. Comes with a great speedlight hotshoe/umbrella adapter as well.

                    I'm buying more!
