The SpinLight 360 EXTREME Modular System is a wonderful light control system for speed lights. With just a twist of the SpinLight Ring one can quickly and easily control the direction of light emanating from a speed light. The innovative Ring System allows for bounce cards and domes to be attached to the ring and with just one hand, the whole ring can be turned up to 360º to direct light to or away from your subject. No more harsh lighting or heavy side shadows! Included in the EXTREME Modular System are 2 black and 2 white bounce cards for varied uses and with the included domes, half-dome and gels, the light strength and quality can be adjusted to your needs.

Using the included Velcro strap, the SpinLight Ring secures easily to almost any standard size shoe-mount flash. And with the SpinLight Ring in place, any one or a combination of light modifiers and gels can be attached to control light as your shooting situation demands. Two circular gels are included, but any gel can be customized to work with this unique gel system.

The SpinLight Ring System is compatible with Nikon SB-600, Nikon SB-700, Nikon SB-800, Nikon SB-900, Nikon SB-910, Canon 580EX II, Canon 580EX, Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT, Canon 480EX II, Sony HVL-F58AM flashes, and all flashes of similar size.

        Useful in tough lighting situations (Such as wedding receptions), or for portraits when just a touch of light is needed. It won't replace my studio lights, but I'd definitely buy again.

          This is a great light modifier- I used all of the different attachments and gels over the last two weeks for indoor and outdoor portraits. Very pleased with the light and results. I think the quality is worth the investment- but for the price I would like to see the grid included with the kit.

            Fits my Canon 580ex II very well. I like that I can block direct light away from my subject and spin the gobo for different directions for the light.

              A little awkward at first but once you get used to it, it becomes second nature. Very versatile and there are plenty of options. The ability to add the gels is key to correcting light output without having to adjust white balance.

                This thing will bring your confidense way up when you're doing a shoot or event of any kind. It has modifiers for every situation and the quality of light is simply superb. Its not complicated at all to find out what modifier is necessary for a specific situation, all you need is common sense which 99% of us have already. I've had the sto-fen omni bounce, lightspere, rougue flashbender. All those are limited to their use in some situations. The Spinlight 360 is not. I do recommend getting the extreme version because you're eventually going to want the other modifiers. I promise you that you'll 100 satisfied with this product.

                  I'm a fashion photographer and I love my Spinlight 360 and accessories and use them all the time. Not only does it provide beautiful, studio quality lighting, but you have so many great possibilities at your fingertips. You can use your imagination and creativity and take your photos to a whole new level. The gels and everything are so convenient. My colleagues saw the great results I've been getting with the Spinlight and they all got them too. I highly recommend it and have told all my photographer friends to get it.

                    I'm a fashion magazine photographer. I love the spinlight 360 and never take it off my flash. It provides a beautiful, even light that makes it look like you're in a studio without carrying all of the equipment. I can't shoot without it. It evens out the light with no hotspot. It's an excellent kit with all the accessories. I can't say enough good things about it. So glad I got it!

                      I recently found out about this product and decided to give it a try. I shoot a lot of society and local business events for a local magazine. With my schedule being what it is, I did not have a chance to event try to product. I packed it in my bag for a major event and decided to work with it. I am quite pleased to say it was a great decision. Using the half dome and white card, I was getting excellent lighting results, much better than anything I ever had with the Fong reporter I have now retired. In fact, I have to say, the Spinlight gives me lighting that is quite close to setting up an umbrella on a stand, not quite as soft, but perfect illumination every time. I did bias the flash one click towards my subjects and that gave me the added bonus of getting some fill light behind them. All in all, for some simple pieces of plastic, it's an excellent product and highly recommended.

                      Comments about Spinlight 360 EXTREME Modular System:

                      I use it for shooting Indoors to control the direction of the light. I found two minor problems.
                      1.The head was not as tight as I would have thought it seemed to lift up on one side. East fix I made a one inch foam band to place beneath the strap area. this works very well and makes the unit feelmuch more secure.

                      2. The fit of the domes was so tight where they clipp into the master head. I was afraid that i was going to break something taking them in & out.
                      Another easy fix. each dome has 3 pads with a little boss on top to clip under the 3 slots on the master head. A little patience and a small metal file taking a few light swipes on top of each little boss Along with trial & error you can
                      make the fit perfect.Not a big deal!!

                      Overall a very nice Product. I think the tight fit of the domes is due to manufacturing tolerances in the plastic. My unit was tight. other units may be just fine.

                            When I first discovered this system at PhotoPlus Expo in 2012 I immediately purchased an Extreme Kit. I now have 3 and they have become my favorite mod system for location fitness and adventure work.

                            I LOVE the grids and use them more than the other mods. I like the way the Spinlight 360 turns the strobe into a circular light source. The round gels seat solidly and don't interfere at all with the attachment or removal of the modifiers.

                            Even though I mostly use the CTO's to warm skin tones when shooting near the ends of the day I look forward to having their complete gel kit.

                              I have been shooting weddings, events and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs for ten years now and I finally found the product to solve all of my lighting woes. The Spinlight 360 is portable, versatile and the most effective lighting solution. During an event, so many things are happening and you only have a split second to capture the moments. The Spinlight allows me to quickly redirect and block the light to and from the subject. The gel system, when you need it, is a very slick way to add a gel without attaching any Velcro with no need to disassemble the Spinlight 360. Well done! In a nutshell, it is all the modifiers in one product with various uses and it looks professional.

                                  I was using a Gary Fong collapsible light modifier but it was much too heavy and I couldn't keep the flash head at the proper angle, plus the dome kept popping out of it at inopportune times. So I went looking for an alternative and found something way better… the Spinlight 360. It is more efficient at using the light (less light loss) and what makes it so great is its EXTREME VERSATILITY. It accomplishes so many various tasks with just this one light modifier and is easy to use. If you check out the company website they show the different uses. I've used it primarily for event photography and it's really a great tool for that. I love the look of photos taken with the half dome + the large white card; it gives a very nice look especially if there is a ceiling (which gets a little bit of extra fill bounce). The Spinlight is also perfect when you need a gobo because you are bouncing off something that is near the subject and thus have the flash pointed somewhat toward the subject. Just this past week I even used the snoot to get exactly what I needed when doing some studio photography of small items. I've also used the gels to match color temps in interiors. Since I got the Spinlight the ring hasn't come off my flash. So far I'm very happy with the product because it is so versatile.

                                  I am a professional wedding photographer and picked this up after seeing it on a a video...and I have not regretted it for one minute. Being a wedding photographer we are challenged with some unusual and often varying lighting situations. This spinlight is so versatile and allows you to get more creative with a single flash and gives you so much versatility as a fill or bounce. With the large bounce card it is a little bulky but you can work around that once you see the results.

                                    Don't get me wrong. We have to give credit to Gary to come up with his genius invention - The Lightsphere.
                                    Now other people had improved Gary Fong's idea and come up with better product like the Spinlight 360.
                                    I like the idea of able to add a white or black card behind the dome to bounce or not to bounce the light. Also having the freedom to turn the card in different directions thanks for the 360 degree design. It is less bulky than the Lightsphere and the result is the same.

                                      I've used Gary Fong Lightsphere, and Rogue FlashBenders. I still use the Rogue FlashBenders sometimes. It provides the best "direct light" when I'm in open space without options for bounce. But the weight it puts on the Flash becomes unwieldy; I use it as a last resort.

                                      Now I mostly use a simple Gobo card. It provides flash bounce light and prevents direct light spilling. While it's compact and provides good bounce lighting, it is a bit restrictive in the angles, as it can only be attached to the sides of the flash. Also tearing it down and reattaching to match the angle is a bit of pain, especially with the Velcro sounds it makes during ceremony.

                                      The Spinlight is almost just as light weight and much more flexible. I found all the modifiers in the package make visible differences in lighting effects. The plastics are good quality as well. Highly recommend. I'm very happy with this product. It will replace my Gobo card. But I will still use Rogue Flashbenders on occasion for direct light in open space.

                                      The only thing I would nitpick to the Spinlight is to provide a few more basic color correction Gels. Only a full and half CTO is not enough, need at least a third for CTB.
