This Vello Light Bouncer Kit for Portable Flashes spreads and redirects the light from a portable flash to soften the quality of light and distribute it over a wider area. No exposure compensation is necessary with automatic flashes, but operating distances will be somewhat reduced.

The Light Bouncer can be used with slaves, or alone where low ceilings are not available, or where more direct but soft fill light is desired. It attaches to the flash head in seconds with the included touch-tab fasteners.

The silver insert adds a specular look to highlights. The gold insert adds a warm tone to the scene, particularly useful for outdoor fill-flash. These inserts attach with touch-tab fasteners to the bounce surface of the Light Bouncer to further modify the light.

    I use this on my flash unit when I shoot indoor events. The gold and silver foil inserts it comes with are really cool. The gold one is especially useful for warming up your photos. If you do use the inserts, the light is not diffused as much because they are so reflective. If you're shooting with a lens that's wider than about 24mm, you will see dark edges where the light doesn't spread to. Take the inserts out and just use the white, and you can go at least as wide as 18mm without problems. Other than that issue, it works great as a simple bounce diffuser. It's the best value for one like this I've seen on the internet.

    I bought this mainly for concert photography. It's ok. It makes the flash a little less harsh especially when the flash has to chill on top of your camera. For that, it's pretty good. The additional gold and silver reflectors were a cool addition. They definitely change the feel. It's a good option if you really can't take the flash off camera for whatever reason. It creates a unique look. If used properly it can help create some cool images.

    Comments about Vello Light Bouncer Kit for Portable Flashes:

    Used this product with my Flash. The Kit comes with two clip on by velcro cardboard additions cut to shape. One was Gold, the other Silver. Without these cards the reflector is White. There is a temperature difference when using the clip on cards.The difference is 150 Degrees Kelvin between the White and the Gold reflector when taking a "RAW" photo. The only down side to this kit is that the reflectors are made of cardboard, and I worry that they will end up bending. I plan to reinforce them by putting some aluminum tape onto the back of the cards.

              I received this unit from B&H as an added premium for free when I purchased the Nikon SB-910 flash unit. It works great for what it's designed to do.

              SHIPPING FROM B&H WAS FAST AND FREE.

                  The harshly lit pictures you get from a flash are sometimes all you can get, and the client is quite happy, but you often wish you could tame the dark shadows behind the subject. Enter the Rougue Flash Bender. Although the large size draws attention, it works as advertised, allowing you to soften the harsh shadows and hot spots on the subjects. It's light, well constructed, relatively small to pack, and inexpensive. Try it, you can always take it back, but i don't think you will.

                        This is just what I've been looking for in an affordable diffuser for the flash. I like the quality of the light that it sends out. I didn't think I would like the silver and gold reflectors to add in, but it turns out I like the look they give better than the white bounce. The silver works well for fill flash in daylight. The gold reflector worked to balance the color of the flash with indoor/incandecent lights. This made the light from the flash closer to the same color for a nice, less glaring, light source.I took the advice of other reviewers and added a couple of rubber bands to assist the hook & loop attachements. I shot an event all evening with no problems from the Bouncer Kit. This is a great addition to your camera bag.

                            This is a nice, easy to carry solution for adding some light to a shot. It folds up compactly and has interchangeable colors to shape the lighting of the scene. I use it for handheld macro photography to throw some diffused light onto a subject and I've gotten good results. The flash I'm using is a smaller Sony CSC flash, instead of the big DSLR flash, so I got the wraparound velcro strap. It all works together well. Ugly, but fully functional and help me get better shots, which is the most important thing.

                            First impression is nice as a cheap compact portable diffuser. It is sort of flimsy but does the job. Definitely recommend using the stick on Velcro vs. the strap option.

                              The Light bouncer kit is awesome addition if you need a filler flash thats not going to over power and blind your models.

                                Used the product in a side by side comparison with another similar product costing much more. Able to show students the diffusion benefit with luch less expense.
                                Found no drawback to the product.

                                  This is a potentially very useful product, but I recommend some significant time experimenting with it (and writing down how you used it in each shot) to really appreciate the various results you can get with it.

                                  I am an "ardent amature" and am using this so far with a variety of shots of individuals and groups. I use is with a Nikon Speedlight 700 and a Vello flashbracket which allows the camera to rotate horizontally or vertically, while keeping the flash abobe the camera. Good, although I wish I had gotten the rotating flash bracket that allows the flash to be a bit off to the side.

                                  I would recommend taking several shots of the same subject, experimenting with the flash angle, using the white and silver bounce insert, etc., and really analyze the differences. I think this is a great product and look forward to using it more, but it will require some research and experimentation to get the full benefits out of it.

                                  Finally, I do question the longevity of the bounce hood - not the quality of the construction per se, but rather the wear and tear it is likely to get as it gets jostled around. Also, the hood adds a lot of additional target area that can get bumped, creating greater risks to torquing your flash shoe - but that is really just a function of how careful or clumsy you are. Still, something to consider if you are moving around a lot or taking photos in crowds who are not mindful of your gear.

                                  It is likely worthy of 5 stars - the greatest limiting factor at the moment is my own learning curve.

                                  These are an excellent addition to the SB910 speed light. I provides flexibility when controlling light.
