      Love being able to control and bend the light. My cat didn't enjoy it so much with the test shots.

        Comments about Vello 5" Snoot/Reflector for Portable Flash:

        The snoot is easy to get on and off of a speedlight, and is quite reflective. we really wish that it could be secured conically more effectively. still using it.

          Comments about Vello 5" Snoot/Reflector for Portable Flash:

          Works great as a snoot but as a reflector it's a bit flimsy. I have a Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT which has a filter attachment on it so the velcro didn't exactly work the way it should have either. I will use it for certain things but not quite what I wis expecting.

          It work great at a snoot but at a reflector is not hard enough to kip the shape that you choose .

            I strapped this on with the cinch strap and fired off some test flashes, I could really see the difference it made to the spread of light. A nice easy way to get a narrow beam of light for dramatic effects.

                Comments about Vello 5" Snoot/Reflector for Portable Flash:

                I was looking for a snoot for my off camera flash and ordered this product. It proved to be a simple, economical solution to my problem. Easily attaches to my flash unit, stays secure, works fine.

                If I want to diffuse the light further in an "emergency" situation, I drape a white paper napkin over the end of the snoot -- problem solved.

                Honestly can't think of anything NOT great about this product -- as long as you just use it for what it was intended for you shouldn't have any trouble.
