      I use these now in place of the paper biz cards or index cards I used to tape to my flashes. Bigger surface gives more fill, which is handy when flash is mounted off-camera at a distance from the subject. Ability to mount, remove and reposition without futzing with tape makes life easier. Sturdy, durable, simple, cheap and effective. What's not to like?

      Once my old Metz died, I replaced it with a 430EXII, which didn't have a built in bounce card. This was a cheap, effective solution that provides a much larger source. My results were useable, but not spectacular. I mostly use speedlights to bounce, so this will just sit in my bag as an emergency source. I also worry about durability, as it's quite large, and fairly flimsy. Does not attach well to the smaller squares on the side of the speedlight, and I had to double up the wide velcro strips on the top. It is lightweight though, unlike some bounce and diffusers, so it won't weaken the head of your speedlight.

      The large velcro on the bounce itself will get caught in your camera bag, so it's not always easy or quiet to get this in and out if your bag is modular.

      All that said, it serves its purpose and is very inexpensive, so

        Easy to use, durable and effective. The Vello light shaper is a great bound for external flashes when shooting in a room with high ceilings will not allow for flash bounce

            This product is great for bouncing your flash. I tried this only a few times because I only got it a few days ago, but it works great. You get even lighting across the whole picture, wide angle, close ups & extreme close ups. It's also easy to set up.

            Really useful when shooting outside or in a place without bouncing possibility.

            But pay attention that the included scratch band is not the one presented on the box. It is adhesive ones.

                  Comments about Vello Light Shapers for Portable Flash:

                  It has been very useful especially because of the final effect of now having the light straight to the subject but more smooth.
                  The only problem is once you stuck the velcro to your flash, it aint coming of as it's with glue, and that's a bit tricky on a long term.

                  but mainly a good product easy and quick.

                        I use this product to soften the light when taking pictures of family members and to any event I am invited to that is indoors. Works well with my Canon EX430II Speed light.
