Product Highlights
  • Reflector Attaches to Shoe-Mount Flash
  • Enhances Skin Tones and Softens Shadows
  • Almost Completely Eliminates "Red-Eye"
  • Fast Change from Portrait to Landscape
  • Unique Shape Covers Widest Angle Lenses

The Lite-Scoop Flash Modifier from Lite Genius is a little accessory that makes a big difference in photos taken using your on-camera flash. The Lite-Scoop softens and spreads the light, eliminating ugly, harsh shadows and directing the light from above--better for photos of people. It virtually eliminates "red-eye" and enhances skin tones. The Lite-Scoop attaches quickly and easily to a shoe-mount flash and can be simply changed when you move from horizontal to vertical orientation and back. The shape of the reflector makes it possible to cover even your widest wide-angle lenses. It's effective indoors or out, with a loss of light from the flash of 2/3 of a stop. 
 

A durable, lightweight white reflector with a professional black exterior finish.
Easily attached to any rotating/tilting head speedlight - Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Metz, Vivitar, etc without the use of sticky disfiguring touch fasteners. The permanent, strong fabric/elastic strap allows for quick and easy on or off for changing light situations.
Changing from portrait to landscape style is very quick while the Lite Genius Lite-Scoop reflector keeps the light coming from a position higher than the lens.
The reflector's unique shape covers your widest angle lenses - this is the key to the Lite-Scoop reflector's incredible photographic results.
The reflector enhances skin tones, almost completely eliminates "red-eye" and softens shadows, placing them behind and below the subject.
Unlike using ceiling bounce flash, even with a "bounce card", high and colored ceilings pose no problem for the Lite-Scoop reflector.
Construction Soft foam reinforced by embedded steel shape supports
Dimensions 6 x 8.5" (15.24 x 21.59 cm)

          I needed a flash modifier to take better photos at wedding receptions and spent a lot of time weighing my options. After reading reviews and looking at the various products I decided to try the Lite-scoop and have been incredibly pleased.

          It is super light, fits securely on my off-camera flash, and does a really top-notch job of softening the flash so my subjects look flattered. I highly recommend it to everyone that asks me about it when I pull it out of my gear bag.

          It's nicely made and easy to use, but no more effective than the large folding bounce card I've been using, and harder to store and carry. A lot better than bare flash, but no better than a good bounce card. And not even close to what you can get putting the same flash on a stand with an umbrella or softbox.

              Just received the diffuser this week and I have been test it out before I would use it in a actual shoot. Now I can say that I will include this diffuser in my camera bag and will use it in a shoot when I am not using my softboxes. I am using it with a 600 EX RT and the design of the Lite Scoop puts out a soft even light and I found it to be effective to about 20 ft from subject. Really good for pointing your flash head up and throwing the light forward. I will be buying another for back up.

              Comments about Lite Genius Lite-Scoop Flash Modifier:

              If you've done your research, you'll have found that no one product does all jobs when it comes to being a flash diffuser/modifier. But as described, for the purposes of portraits and such, this Lite-Scoop Flash Modifier DOES work, especially if what you're used to using is a regular flash, or a flash with a omni-bounce soft cap, like I've been using. It's also affordable, so there's not that much risk in having it as part of your arsenal. The only problem would be how to store it or carry it with you... my omni-bounce product would've fit right into my bag. But then again, you'd have the same problem with modifiers this size no matter what modifier you bought.

                i've tried several on flash modifiers including some of the gary fong products, and this is the best one. its portable, easy to pack (flexible), easy to mount, and diffuses the light effectively without spraying light all over the place like the dome type units. the best one to use if portability is key. highly recommended.

                          Comments about Lite Genius Lite-Scoop Flash Modifier:

                          Too often I find myself shooting an event in a room with a high ceiling or colored walls, and most flash attachments designed to bounce the light are simply not the right tool for the job. Enter the Lite-Scoop. This light weight little attachment sends over 85% of the light towards the subject producing a nice softly lit portrait that can't be beat with an on camera flash. It is easily packed in my camera bag, attaches in about one second and allows my flash to stay above the lens by pivoting with the flash head for horizontal or vertical shots. For a single portrait or a group the Lite-Scoop creates the perfect front light without picking up the color from the walls or ceiling. Even for shooting close ups of the wedding cake or the table cards, it wraps the light softly around the subject. It now has a permanent place in my camera bag, and on the job is usually found riding atop my SB-800. Cons? there is a metal armature sandwiched in the scoop surface that can become distorted if carried in a very full camera bag, but it is easily restored to its original shape in seconds, so no big deal. It's worth twice the price.
