Good but not my favorite

By Clint Jones

from Tyler Texas

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

Good build quality but can only function in a full circle. In other words you can not block only one side of the speed light.

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:

      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.

        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.
