Professor Kobre's Lightscoop Universal Warming Mirror Bounce for Pop-Up Flash turns your DSLR's built-in pop-up flash into a fine lighting instrument, banishing unsightly black shadows, the evil (red) eye, and nasty hot spots from your photographs, and replacing them with a softer, gentler light that flatters your subject, whether man or woman, old or young, dog or cat, fish or fowl. And, this warming mirror has the added extra attraction of giving a slight amber cast to the light, producing more pleasing skin tones.
Too good to be true? Nope, it works, and you don't have to be a technical wizard to use it, either. This small low-tech device creates soft, flattering light by using a small mirror to redirect light from your camera's pop-up flash to a ceiling or wall, which reflects the light, spreading it out and softening it, for greatly improved photos. Just slip the Lightscoop over your camera's pop-up flash, follow the simple directions, and, bingo!--you can stop deleting half your pictures because of the ugly lighting.
In addition to this warming mirror, a standard mirror without the amber tint is available separately.
The Lightscoop is designed for use only with DSLRs using interchangeable lenses with a pop-up, built-in flash--the flash on point-and-shoot cameras isn't strong enough for use with the Lightscoop.
