Product Highlights
  • Large Diffusion Panel
  • Large Positionable Reflector
  • Large Silver/Black Reflector Attachment

The ExpoImaging Rogue FlashBender Large Soft Box Kit contains a large FlashBender Reflector, Diffusion Panel and a Silver/Black Reflector panel, giving you a multitude of creative options to sculpt the light from your on-camera flash to your needs.

The reflector can be used to either bounce light onto your subject, to flag unwanted light away or illuminate specific areas much like a snoot. The 9 x 8" diffusion panel softens and spreads the light like a small soft box when attached to the reflector while the Black/Silver Attachment gives you a specular punch of light on the silver side and greater flag control for unwanted light on the black side.

      I used this for the first time at the last wedding I shot. We were all moved indoors because of rain. Used this for the guy shoot and loved the way it turned out right out of camera. Well worth it. I won't travel without this or the small one.

      Sorry I bought this thinking i have found a solution for a portable light setup. The diffuser does not really work. It claims that the top silver lining works for bounce. Yet once installed the top never stays up. It just falls flat againt the card.

      It is also very heavy on the flash head. A lot of people has recommended to wrap it around the middle of the base instead. That just gets in the way of settings.

      All this really does is create a larger light spread. The light is still as strong and shadows are as sharp as if you using your on top camera flash with a diffuser cap. Now the shadows are a tad lighter. But that is not what am looking for.

      The only advantage is you get a large flexable bounce card which can turned into a long snoot.For extra money you can get a adapter to use a grid or gels.

      Just too expensive for what it really is.

        This product mounts on Nikon SB900 flash very easily. The negative is one cannot use the silver reflector with the soft box to add more light. I was able to sew two velcro strips that sit between the silver reflector and the soft box. Easy to make this adjustment.

            I purchased a pair of these for family wedding portraits and used them 2 days after they arrived. They were great and did exactly what I wanted them for. I am looking forward to using them more to see what else I can get out of them.

            from So Fla

            Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue FlashBender Large Soft Box Kit:

            I switched to this softbox after my trusty inflatable one bit the dust. Wow! What a difference. I had very little touch up to do afterwards - minimal shine or hotspots, and guests agreed their images were flattering. I'm sold! The only drawback is the size. I felt a bit uncomfortable hauling around my unwieldy contraption (D3;24-70 f2.8; camera-mounted speed lite; big softbox), trying to 'blend in' haha!, but now I'm confident in the results.

              Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue FlashBender Large Soft Box Kit:

              It really does bend the light when there is no ceiling to bounce off of. It really can control side spill. It is well built. A small soft box could do the same but one would be limited on how / where/ which side to control the spill…. lighting need not be symmetrical and the flash bender allows one to have asymmetrical lighting. I am not convinced that the diffusion panel adds much but maybe I need to test this some more at close range.

              I am glad I did not buy the bigger version. Several times the weight of the flash bender made my flash change angles when I moved around. This would be less of a problem on a remote flash as long as there is no wind. That is why I give it a five instead of a four. I would buy it again. It's compact and can serve as a snoot or barn door.

                Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue FlashBender Large Soft Box Kit:

                I'm a decent amateur photographer who is still after 3 years doing his best to figure out how to use his Canon T1i to its fullest capabilities. Yet flash photography is still a challenge, especially in low light conditions.

                I was asked to photograph the Jewish wedding of two friends of mine at their home. The house is small and the available space to move around in was limited. I was asked to shoot in very low and mixed incandescent light. I practiced with the Rogue FlashBender Large Soft Box Kit by ExpoImaging and the Gary Fong Collapsible Lightsphere to see which would work best in this situation. Both worked well.

                I ultimately ended up using the Gary Fong Collapsible Lightsphere with the WhiteDome on top of my Canon 430 EX flash, but only because I had no time at all to change gear in practice and had to make a quick decision having no chance to test both in the "live situation."

                I would still highly recommend the Rogue FlashBender Large Soft Box Kit by ExpoImaging because it's truly a multi-tasking tool. It can offer very nice diffuse light that one can aim as needed, it can be used to cover an area to not add flash, or can be curled over to make a lovely spot flash if needed. There seem to be very few flash diffusion tools on the market that can multi-task as well as this one. The Gary Fong Lightsphere is omni-directional, where as the Rogue FlashBender Large Soft Box Kit by ExpoImaging can be targeted much more so.

                I look forward to practicing with it and getting better photos.

                P.S. It's a great conversation starter.

                After searching and reviewing many similar products I have to say I couldn't be happier. Just recently I had too shoot a kids birthday party and this little thing made me proud. I was even able to take take group shots in very poor lighting where the rogue flashbender did its job by diffusing the light appropriately giving the photos a professional appearance. It's very light and easy to take anywhere. Loveit!

                    It is light weight, goes on the flash easy but the silver top of the reflector does attach flat as to do a good job of bouncing the light back out to your subject.

                      I bought this after seeing what Cliff Mautner and Frank Doorhof did with this - however, as with most things, it's still the skill of the photographer to produce good images.

                      Fantastic that it folds up flat and takes no space in the camera bag.

                      I used it outdoors on a bright sunny day, but had the flash too far away from subject to overpower sun. Different to bounce flash and will need some practise - however, it is easily attached to a flash to produce off camera directional light.

                          Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue FlashBender Large Soft Box Kit:

                          I orginally purchased to just try out in a situation where I knew I would not be able to use my speedlite off camera and it worked like a dream. The light was soft and perfectly diffused and no one looked like I popped them with a harsh bright flash. I higly recommend.
