Product Highlights
  • Improves Light From DSLR Pop-Up Flash
  • Improves/Eliminates Harsh Shadows
  • More Natural-Looking Light
  • "Warmer" Light for Better Skin Tones
  • Compatible W/Major Camera Brands

Professor Kobre's Lightscoop Universal Warming Mirror Bounce for Pop-Up Flash turns your DSLR's built-in pop-up flash into a fine lighting instrument, banishing unsightly black shadows, the evil (red) eye, and nasty hot spots from your photographs, and replacing them with a softer, gentler light that flatters your subject, whether man or woman, old or young, dog or cat, fish or fowl. And, this warming mirror has the added extra attraction of giving a slight amber cast to the light, producing more pleasing skin tones. 

Too good to be true? Nope, it works, and you don't have to be a technical wizard to use it, either. This small low-tech device creates soft, flattering light by using a small mirror to redirect light from your camera's pop-up flash to a ceiling or wall, which reflects the light, spreading it out and softening it, for greatly improved photos. Just slip the Lightscoop over your camera's pop-up flash, follow the simple directions, and, bingo!--you can stop deleting half your pictures because of the ugly lighting.

In addition to this warming mirror, a standard mirror without the amber tint is available separately.

The Lightscoop is designed for use only with DSLRs using interchangeable lenses with a pop-up, built-in flash--the flash on point-and-shoot cameras isn't strong enough for use with the Lightscoop.

For Sony cameras, you must use the Sony Standard or Warming Mirror Lightscoop. This Lightscoop Universal Warming Mirror is compatible with:


Canon: 7D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, Rebel XTi, XSi, 400, 450, XT, XTi, T1i, XS, 350, 500/550D, 1000D
Fuji: FinePix Pro series
Nikon: D40, D40x, D50, D60, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D100, D200, D300, D700, D3000, D5000
Olympus: E420, E520, E3, E620
Pentax: K-7, K10D, K100D, K20D, K200D
Sigma: SD14

            If you have a camera with inbuilt flash this product is for you. It gives you greater control of lighting. It eliminates shadows and flat spots that are part and parcel associated with pop up flash guns.

              Great addition to my bag especially for when I just want a few spontaneous "snaps" and don't feel like setting up my more powerful and sophisticated flash system. do wish it could collapse though. It does hog space inefficiently. Glad I bought it.

                  Quick and easy to use for snapshots and candids when fancy set-ups aren't in order. Reasonably priced and functional I would unhesitatingly recommend it.

                    I got this to buy myself some time before I had the $$ to spend on a "real" flash. It definitely softens the blow of the built in flash.
