Lastolite By Manfrotto


About Lastolite

The original and trusted provider of lighting control solutions to the world’s most accomplished image makers, offering innovative and portable products that deliver time after time, in the most demanding situations.


The simple idea of creating the world’s first pop-up circular reflector not only created a revolution in imaging, but also paved the way for the Lastolite by Manfrotto to grow from a family-run UK company to an internationally-renowned industry leader that thrives on product development and design innovation.


Originally established in 1978, the business has steadily grown, and has pioneered the development of innovative lighting control systems that have set the benchmark on how today’s imagemakers control and ‘paint’ with light. Considered by many as the market leader, Lastolite by Manfrotto now operates from an impressive 44,000 sq ft design and manufacturing facility in the UK, with a portfolio of over twenty product categories, including Reflector Panels and Diffusers, Softboxes, Umbrellas, Speedlite Modifiers, Backgrounds, Background Supports, Brackets and Lighting Stands. The company also holds a number of patents and registered designs, which is testament to their continued investment into research and development.


In 2011, Lastolite by Manfrotto joined the Vitec Group, and now sits proudly amongst some of the most established and well-respected brands in the business, with a shared passion for capturing and sharing exceptional imagery
