    Better Beamer for the pop-up flash

    Imagine a well lite scene at 35 to 50 feet using the built in pop-up flash. The Rogue Safari Booster will easily accomplish just that!

      Very good...highly recommender

      Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue Safari DSLR Pop-Up Flash Booster:

      I shoot mostly birds. I saw this and gave it a try, since my Canon D70 has an integrated pop up flash. It works as well as my 430 /beamer setup when the distance is below 50 feet with my 400mm and 1.4. Now always with me, and it is very solid.

        I shoot a lot of pictures at indoor basketball games. This has extended the range of my built in flash very well. It is light weight and does a good job. If your looking to extend your flash without the high cost of an external flash, this will do it.

          Have used it with my 7D/400mm and works great. Great for hand holding and those cases when you don't have the add on flash. Coverage is excellent (see their use recommendations), and DOES boost the overall intensity of the pop-up flash, making it useful. I photograph mostly birds in the 15-20ft range, and it works great. Get one, you will love it.

          The Rogue Safari works as designed. The Rogue provides nice flash coverage at distances not achievable with the onboard flash.

            Nice light

            Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue Safari DSLR Pop-Up Flash Booster:

            I haven't used the light but a couple of times. It looks like it is going to work good for me. I do a lot of Wildlife and when I shoot in the Zoo where their is no fences I wanted to use a fill light that would have a longer reach. This light looks like it is going to the job just fine.

            Slips on and off without too much effort on my Nikon D7100. I found it easier to use manual settings to get good exposure.

              This thing really throws out some light. Bigest problem was red eye when I first used it as it's so strong.

              Had to dial back 2-3 stops on exposure at 40-60 ft out.

                        I use this on my Nikon D3200, along with my Nikkor 70-300mm lens and get excellent results. Great for lighting up those distance scenes, or insets and animals. Highly recommended.
