Photoflex 870481 overview

  • 1Description

The LiteReach Plus with 39 x 39" LitePanel Kit from Photoflex is a suitable solution for diffusing harsh sunlight when shooting on location. It consists of a LightPanel translucent diffuser and a LightReach support pole.

The LiteReach Plus extends from 35.5" to 9.6' and can hold a maximum vertical load of 15.0 lb. When holding the pole and diffuser, the balance ball at the bottom of the pole allows you to comfortably place the weight of the kit against your hip. The LitePanel attaches to the end of the support pole, allowing you to hold the diffuser above the subject, providing a softer light than the direct sunlight. The frame folds down to 39 x 3" and is held together with internal bungee cords, making it easy to break down and set up. The quick-release rail system features a modular mounting plate for a variety of mounting options and fast setup. A polyester carrying bag is included to transport the kit.

  • LiteReach Plus

    The Photoflex LiteReach Plus is a heavy duty three-section support that allows you to hold a Photoflex LitePanel, umbrella or softbox up to 9.6' above your subject. Shooting outdoors, especially in mid-day sun is a tough contrast situation for the photographer and a hot, physically uncomfortable one for the subject. With separate purchase of the LitePanel Mounting Hardware Kit (PHLPFHK) you'll be able to hold LitePanel frames with diffusion material up to 39 x 72" over your subject to obtain soft, manageable contrast.

    You can get a similar effect using a large white umbrella in place of the LitePanel. You'll need an optional Multiclamp with Shoe Mount (B&H# PHMCUSM)or a Heavy Duty Swivel (B&H# PHSM) mounted to the LiteReach Plus' 5/8" top stud to hold the umbrella. You can also use these products to support a softbox. With a maximum tubing diameter of 1.37", the LiteReach Plus has enough heft to handle a 15 lb vertical load at its full extension

     Comfort and ergonomics are key to the LiteReach's design. The large rubberized balance ball allows you to shift the weight of your gear to your hip or to the ground, while two hand grips are located at ideal spots on the shaft to facilitate single-handed or two-handed direction of the LitePanel, umbrella or softbox.

    Extra long four section boom pole to facilitate resting the base on the ground using the proprietary Balance Ball technology.
    All aluminum alloy heavy duty construction.
    Oversized tubing for maximum strength when extended.

Photoflex 870481 reviews

LiteReach Plus with 39 x 39" LitePanel Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy product--mostly The weakest points are at the connections. The swivel clamp that holds the arm and panel together seem very sturdy. However, when the set screw of the swivel was tightened to the pole, the threads in the swivel gave out. Photoflex quickly replaced the swivel bracket;but, I am still cautious.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of Options and Fast. Light weight. Fast. Portable. Like the silver/white and black/white options. The boom pole has a baby pin for use with lights. The head they provide is limited to two axis use but otherwise it's good
