I use this product mainly to knock back the harshness of bright sunlight. Since it has the grip it is possible to both hold the diffuser and take a photo if it is a fairly tight photo. As an example, head shot of a single or possibly two people. You have to realize you are trading surface area for the convenice of the grip since this product is triangular the diffusion area is less than you would have with 30 inch square product.

This can be used both in the studio as well as for outdoor portraits. It folds into a small size and packs easily into the sturdy (included) carrying case. My only complaint is that when I attempted to re-fold it the first time, the inside metal band broke into two pieces. It is still usable, but I am afraid to attempt to re-fold it so I can put it into its carrying case. It's possible that I folded it incorrectly on my first try, but with no instructions as to the proper method, I don't believe that I am entirely to blame.

            Making portraits in direct sun becomes possible with this tool. The handle makes it quite nice for an assistant. I have not tried mounting it on a stand yet, but it's certainly okay for that. I bought the 30" which works for for head-and-shoulders and is is convenient size. But I kinda wish I have a larger size. If you can handle the bulk of larger, go for it. Also, I did not see a need for more diffusion; would not go for the 2-stop version.

              Nice grip, quality diffuser, solid!

              Except the blue pocket zipper broke the first time I used it. For that reason I give 4 stars.

              It's not easy to pick between the 1 or 2 stops. I read all the reviews and I pick the 1 stop.

              Nice for flower photography to stop the wind!

                Joe McNally is right, this is the reflector/diffuser to have. The shape + the handle make it easy to use. You can get just the diffuser or you can get the kit with diffuser and reflectors. Wonderful for outdoors.

                    I use the 30" Trigrip Diffuser most often when I want to soften light from a Speedlite. I use several of Lastolite's Speedlite softboxes and I like to use the trigrip in combination to double diffuse. I end up with beautiful soft light from such a small flash. There is nothing I don't like about this product. It is lightweight, durable, and designed for convenience. The hand grip is extremely useful for an assistant, or myself to hold while I am shooting. I also purchased the Lastolite Trigrip Holder which works very well to hold the Trigrip when an assistant is not around.

                    It's a pretty straightforward concept, and there isn't a lot that can go wrong. The frame is a little flimsy, but the handle of course is its claim to fame. I'm giving it four stars because I travel with an extendable painter's pole, and I seriously wanted to screw it into the handle for an extra few feet beyond what I could reach with my arm. Think about it Lastolite.

                        We are a pro photography studio and this is perfect for up close, outdoor, on'sight photography. It of course isn't necessarity the best choice for family protraits. It gets a lot of use from us for engagement sessions, children and commercial model photography. The grip is perfect and this thing is easy to use, easy to fold up and I actually can use the velcro to attach it to my belt for quick access and storage when I don't need it. No need to lay it on the group if your out away from your vehicle or studio. Easy to carry, light and durable.

                          Budding enthusiast here. I purchased this as part of the "Scott Kelby Location Kit" and use it in a home studio for the family and some friends. Well built and it works. The grip is big, perfect for my large hands. Affixing it securely to the kit-included Manfrotto clamps took some creativity, but I'm new to all this, so that's probably my fault. I used it right away to make some Christmas cards using pictures of the family. I only wish some directions would be included with either these diffusers or the kit as a whole. Specifically, some suggestions on proper distances from speedlites (my preference) for a desired effect. Other than that, no complaints.

                            I take many portraits and this diffuser works excellently for portraiture. It makes mid-day shooting now possible which is a major benefit for those of us who are busy at sunrise/sunset hours. It is big enough to fit a few people under its protection and cuts away harsh sunlight. It also works well as a reflector in situations where you need a fill light. I also shoot my flash through the diffuser to create a beautiful, soft light. Overall, the TriGrip Diffuser is a necessity for all photographers because there will always be an opportunity in which it will make your life easier.

                                  Nice and small, well made, and blocks just the right amount of light resulting in stunning results. Never fear portraits or flower shots in mid day sun again.

                                    The TriGrip Diffuser is very useful. It is well made and easy to use. Highly recommended, especially if you do lots of portrait work outdoors.

                                      It's bigger than I expected. Probably should have pulled out a tape measure. Very well built. All in all, exactly as advertised.
