    This thing is great. It's one of the best pieces of kit in my arsenal. It allows me to put light where I want it & nowhere else.

    I've only used it a handful of times in the week or two since I purchased it, but if I'm not shooting through an umbrella, odds are this thing is on the flash shaping the light to where I want it.

    It attaches to the camera with a velcro strap (no glue on your strap, you just wrap it around the head). It's just about big enough so that if you form a snoot, it'll cover the whole of my Nikon SB600- I'm not sure this would work so well on larger flash units like my Vivitar 285hv.

    It's basically a large sheet with gray on the inside & black on the outside and two rubbery strips that hold their position to allow you to shape it however you want. There are tiny velcro strips at the four corners that hold it in place when you shape it as a snoot. A bit more velcro would be welcome as the center area tends to gap & light may leak out when as a snoot. Perhaps a piece of velcro in the center of the 'snoot' configuration.

    I've used it as a gobo (to prevent stray light from hitting the lens), and my new favorite - the half-snoot. An upside down 'u' shape that allows you to light the model's whole body & nothing else. In this shape, the light coming out of the flash is ever so slightly softened by the internal reflections, though I wouldn't call it soft light.

    I guess you could use it as a bounce card if necessary, but it's not so sturdy that I'd keep it on my camera while walking around and if I have time to set up and I want to soften the flash, I'm using an umbrella.

    All in all, this is a very useful piece of gear that can be used to limit where light goes. It's sturdy and I expect to get years of use out of it. When I'm done with it, I slip it back in the cardboard sleeve it came in & put it in the laptop area of my backpack. You could roll it up & dump it in your gear bag too, but I'd rather keep the velcro fresh by not exposing it to lint or whatever in my bag.

    Ive only used it once so far but it made a major difference then the harshness of the flash. It made its own dark edges of the photo without having to edit them that way, which is awesome, i do that all the time. I havent bent it many ways yet but all the ways i have makes a huge difference in my photos and its great for those just starting out in photography like i am. Seems a little expensive but not compaired to others. It folds flat for storage in a bag :) i havent used it enough to have anything bad to say about it.

      I have used this for three events now. I am learning how to bend the light to where I want it. The only negative is sometimes people knock into me and move this. The other thing is the flash sometimes bends forward.

              Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue FlashBender Small Positionable Reflector:

              This is my first Rogue/ExpoImaging product. It will not be my last. I love that it's soft and folds completely flat - it fits in my bag between the padded camera insert and the wall. This spot was previously useless, or reserved for a passport when traveling. Now I keep the FlashBender there and forget about it until it's needed.The build quality of this item is fantastic. Rogue probable could have even dialed the materials down a notch (but I'm happy they didn't). The ways you can position this thing are endless, and I find it works great for both on- and off-camera flash. I also like that I can turn the same piece of gear from my bag into a snoot that provides great results.On the whole, I'm not sure what else you would expect or want from a small flash modifier that disappears in your bag. For the price and nearly nonexistent size/weight penalty in your bag, I don't think you can go wrong with the small FlashBender. I'm very satisfied.

              The Best Flash Accessory, Hands Down

              By O2BnKY

              from Memphis, Tn

              Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue FlashBender Small Positionable Reflector:

              I absolutely love the FlashBinder. I have used one for a couple of years now. I use it every day. It turns my on-camera flash into studio light. I am able to light entire rooms evenly without blowing out the closest person. I can get great directional light by bouncing it off of the walls around a person in the foeground and onto a subject. It is the best tool on the bag other than the camera.

                  He comprado el reflector para fotografías en interiores, aún no lo uso en exteriores, en fotos de grupo y retratos funciona muy bien ya que crea una luz difusa y ayuda a tener texturas en las fotos evitando quemar la imagen o crear sombras duras detrás de los sujetos a ser fotografiados.

                  Este reflector lo he comprado por la recomendación de una amigo que se dedica 100% a la fotografía de bodas, ya lo había visto actuar y la verdad es que te evita el peso y volumen que crean los softbox.

                  Si buscas algo práctico y tienes un Flash potente esta puede ser una solución incluso montada sobre la cámara, si tus requerimientos son mayores que el relleno y una iluminación suave necesitaras subir un grado más allá y comprar luces de estudio y softbox portátiles.

                      I have other flash modifiers to include the Spinlight 360 system and a couple of Graslon diffusers. This beats them all hands down!!

                      I usually use this with the flash at a 45 degree angle to the ceiling and slightly curved on the top and side edges. Where other modifiers will tend to concentrate the light in the center of the frame, this will provide an even light throughout the width and depth of the photo.

                      I have thought about buying snoots for my different flashes, but with this I don't need to.

                          I can see this working pretty well. It is well made and easy to carry and use. The thing is I just don't think it does a better job than a piece of foam core and an rubber band.

                          I tried it and quite liked it but not enough to pay for it so I've gone back to my home-made version which is not as pretty but costs about 40 cents, takes thirty seconds to make and I don't care if I leave it somewhere - your mileage may vary.

                            1. SUNDAY TOOK 128 PHOTOS OF PEOPLE AT THE "T SHIRT" DANCE.
                            2. THE FLASH WAS EVEN AND VERY LITTLE SHADOW ON THEIR FACES
                            3. THE REFLECTOR TAKES A LITTLE TIME TO GET USE TO IT. FROM NOW ON I WILL USE IT FOR EVERY FLASH SHOT.

                              One of the more useful purchases for the lease amount of $$. Much better than rubber-banding an index card to my lens. Totally worth the money.

                                I have used it mostly as a snoot. I can see that it could serve as a reflector, will be trying that when the opportunity presents. 4 stars, because it could be a couple bucks cheaper.

                                I use the larger flash bender for my flash. This one stays in my camera bag for use as an extension or substitute for a lens hood. I do a lot of landscape work and there are those times when no matter what I do, I will still get lens flair. I can attach this, bend it to where it needs to be and no more lens flair. Sure, I could use a hat or hand, but this lets me be more precise and if necessary shoot without needing to see throught the viewfinder. And, I can use it on a second flash if needed.

                                  I love this flashbender. One thing though. Learn on your own time before you try to use it professionally. It works when you have a baseline set up in your mind.
