EXCELLENT small light modifier

I mainly use this for:
1) 'bending' the light waround the subject when taking macro shots
2) using with soft box attachement for headshots

The actual product is very good. There was one flaw with the large bender. It is too heavy. I have a new 580II flash. It falls at certain positions and for this reason I could not give it a better review. I have since ordered the smaller version and it is much better for walking around. If you want to use the large for a flash that is static on a stand it works great, otherwise the smaller version would be a better option.

            Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue FlashBender Large Positionable Reflector:

            I was thinking about buying a typical, fixed-position bounce card but I'm very glad I chose this positionable reflector instead. It's very easy to position in the desired way, creating a bounce card, flag, or event a snoot.
            The product appears to be well made (except for a few small places where the stiching isn't completely perfect). And it lies flat to fit nicely in my bag. It fits my flash (Canon Speedlite 600-EX-RT) very nicely with an elastic band that attaches to itself with a sturdy velcro end.
            I look forward to exploring other products from Rogue FlashBender.

              This product gives a nice large area for modifying light. When used with the attached diffusion panel it gives a nice broad diffused pattern of light.

              A must have flash accessory

              By CLB

              from Spring Valley, NY

              Comments about ExpoImaging Rogue FlashBender Large Positionable Reflector:

              When there is no ceiling to bounce off of, in a venue that has ceilings over 11' high or outdoors, this is the best flash modifier - it diffuses the light beautifully.
              When shooting close up, the power of the flash should be lowered as the Flashbender causes overexposure when close to a subject.

                I love the results I'm getting from the FlashBender, and their flexibility. I own a couple of other flash modifiers, but those will be gathering dust most of the time from now on.

                      An easy inexpensive way to spread the light for group photos at a wedding. Easy to attach to a speed light mounted on a light stand or hand held by an assistant.

                            I found out about this reflector while watching a video on canon flash systems by Syl Arena, and ordered it right away. I had tried other reflectors before and never was fully satisfied with them. This one did the trick. It is the lights and simplest option for a soft light on the go.

                              The flashbender is a terrific product. The ability to shape the product makes it possible to use it in a variety of ways. One useful shape is as a snoot of variable size. It can be used as a flag or a reflector. Being lightweight and flexible makes it easy to carry. A very useful low cost accessory.

                                        A diffuser that is easy to transport. Great for weddings.

                                          I keep this in my bag all the time. It's a great, easy to use flash modifier. I added the diffuser panel for softer light.

                                          Greatly improves the quality of light from your flash where bouncing off ceilings or walls is not an option, or controlling light by snooting/flagging. Mounts quickly and is easily adjusted, but can be annoying to carry around when mounted on the camera. So far I have not had any issues with it not securing tight enough to the flash, but I could see where that present a problem if you're doing a lot of adjusting on the fly. Bottom line, its absolutely worth the small investment for the times you'll need it.

                                            You wouldn't think something so simple would make such a difference in the quality of a speedlight flash; but it does. I wish I had purchased this years ago.
