      Comments about Sunbounce BOUNCE-WALL Set:

      I love the light this produces from a hot shoe mounted flash, but seriously, it's so brittle it's useless. If you barely touch, just touch this onto a hard surface, the ball joint snaps like I don't know what. Wouldn't be so bad if you could find replacement parts without having to order a whole new unit. When you call the distributors to try to see if parts are available, they don't even know what you're talking about and it's pretty hard to explain. If it was made of a lightweight metal, it would be revolutionary.

          I wrote one review that was not published (too critical?)This device broke the first time I used it. The bracket that holds the card clamps onto a ball head. The wind grabbed the card and flipped it to the sidewalk breaking the plastic clamp. Is now useless, live and learn.

          Comments about Sunbounce BOUNCE-WALL Set:

          Quite easy to setup, and use. If I use it for outdoor use it is best to do so when it is not too windy, but I used it with 7 to 10 mps and I able to get the job done.

          I believe it is the best solution, I have found for soft light off camera.

          I also ordered the White / Gold, but I haven't used it yet.

          I believe that you will find many uses for these devices.

          Comments about Sunbounce BOUNCE-WALL Set:

          Let me preface this by saying I hate being in a position to use a flash for photography. BUT, I also cannot carry around softbanks & Kinos everywhere I go. This is an interesting compromise and has given me results I like in run & gun situations (tho with it's up to 16" reach-out from your head, it's a little tricky squeezing your way through a party crowd...). Moving some soft key light off axis is what this baby does and it does it fairly well.

            Comments about Sunbounce BOUNCE-WALL Set:

            The Bounce-Wall system is indeed very portable, and breaks down and is neatly stored in the front pockets (use both pockets) of my Canon 200DG camera bag! It make the light that falls on the subjest bigger, softer and definately more beautiful as appose to using only my speedlite! I wiil be ordering the additional reflector in the near future!

              Comments about Sunbounce BOUNCE-WALL Set:

              Definitely does what it claims to do - it gives you even CONSISTENT lighting and it's easy to set up. You don't want to use it at events for many different reasons, but if you need to do a quick portrait photography where you can't or you don't want to use serious lighting equipment then this device is for you. Switching it from one side to the other is a little bit of a pain, but overall I am happy with it.

                This is the run and gun's best friend - pleasing light that appears as if it's off camera. Pictures don't have the flash feel with the Bounce Wall.
