Also known as "Rags" these are the materials that are tied to the Butterfly/Overhead frame.

For many years, only the basic materials were used such as scrims to reduce light, silk to diffuse light and solid to eliminate light.

More recently many new materials have been added to allow many degrees of diffusion (Grid Cloths, Black Silks, etc.) plus many new reflective materials are now available to make large reflectors for both sunlight and artificial light such as Matthflectors, Grifflectors and Lames.

Size 8' x 8' (2.4 x 2.4m)
Approx. Light Loss 1.6 Stops
Webbing Color Gold
Primary Use Softens and diffuses direct light, and introduces a significant amount of ambient bounce
Safety Characteristics Self Extinguishing

              I use this a lot to create the soften light for my portrait, there are holes on each side, easy for me to hang up anywhere. I m very satisfied with it so far.

                i dont give 5 stars because it is a two parts mounted panel so it has a sawing on the meddle but the edges are well finished and the quality is great on diffusion.
                I like the angles with this part to hold and fits on the frame. Good value

                    I use this silk all the time. It's perfect for evenly lighting a medium sized set, or even portraits. if you desire an overhead (butterfly) light. It creates a beautiful soft light. I always have this handy.
