Product Highlights
  • Improves Light From DSLR Pop-Up Flash
  • Improves/Eliminates Harsh Shadows
  • More Natural-Looking Light
  • Compatible W/Sony Cameras Only

Professor Kobre's Lightscoop Sony Standard Mirror Bounce for Pop-Up Flash turns your Sony 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. 

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 standard mirror, a warming mirror which adds a light amber color for more pleasing skin tones is available separately.

The Lightscoop is designed for use only with Sony 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 non-Sony cameras, you must use the Lightscoop Universal Standard or Universal Warming Mirror. This Sony Standard Mirror Lightscoop is compatible with Sony a200, a250, a300, a350, a330, a380, a500, a550, a700 cameras.

Improves the light from pop-up flashes on DSLRs, softening or eliminating harsh black shadows, red-eye, and hot spots

            Comments about Lightscoop Sony Standard Mirror Bounce for Pop-Up Flash:

            I was somewhat skeptical. How could such a simple gadget produce such good results? I am now a believer. Kudos to Professor Kobre! B&H is the best for products, prices, and service! Review editing limitation - not able to correct spelling of added best use "Jewelry Pictures".

                When I used the Lightscoop, it did not allow enough light from my camera flash to bounce back to the subject. It was as though no flash was used at all.

                  This Lightscoop is awesome. It does take some getting used to manipulating the flash bounce to project the right amount of light but the pictures it can create are incredible. I could not be more satisfied for the price!

                      Comments about Lightscoop Sony Standard Mirror Bounce for Pop-Up Flash:

                      This light scoop works great to bounce your pop-up flash and gently illuminate your subjects. It is small, easily fits in a cargo pocket or your camera bag, and it is a must buy for Sony shooters with APS-C cameras and pop-up flashes.

                      I also have high ceilings, and by increasing the power on my pop-up, it is no problem.

                      I will eventually buy a Sony flash, but in the meantime, this works great!
