Quickly and easily improve the quality of your on-camera lighting with this MagMod Starter Kit. It features a unique and simple-to-use MagGrip that slides onto most flashes and uses magnets to secure accessories, such as the MagSphere diffuser and MagGrid included here.

  • MagSphere

    Transform your on-camera flash into an omni-directional light source with the MagSphere, designed for use with the MagMod flash modifier system. The soft, diffused light is flattering and it has an integrated gel slot for adjusting the color of your flash. The two neodymium rare-earth magnets allow it to quickly attach to a separately available MagGrip, as well as other modifiers, such as a MagGrid, for more control over your light. Additionally, it is made from molded silicone rubber for a sleek, simple design with good durability and it comes with a microfiber carrying pouch.

  • MagGrid

    Control light spill and narrow your flash's beam angle to 40° with the MagGrid, designed for the MagMod flash modifier system. This grid efficiently focuses the light and attaches to the MagGrip via two neodymium rare-earth magnets. Also, it is stackable with other accessories and even other MagGrids, allowing users to further narrow their beam angle. It is made from molded silicone rubber for a sleek, simple design with good durability.

  • MagGrip

    Made from an elastic silicone rubber, the MagGrip from MagMod stretches over the head of most on-camera flash units and provides two neodymium rare-earth magnets for quickly mounting a variety of accessories from the MagMod flash modifier system. The rubber offers a secure, tight grip on the flash head and is durable. Also, the flash head should be about 2.5" wide for the modifiers to be able to properly attach to the flash head.

Starter Flash Kit is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile light modifier! ...still not an umbrella Magmod is awesome for the versatility it brings to situations, it's possible to change modifiers extremely quickly.� The two big things that keep it from being a five star system for me is that while it has lots of gel options it only has one blue gel and it's a full ctb which makes it impossible to match color perfectly when it's overcast. The other thing which honestly I knew going in is that the magsphere does soften the light but not anywhere near the lovely quality of light that comes from an umbrella. Still, the system is great for lots of other reasons as long as you don't expect it to replace the other modifiers in your kit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too heavy! Pros: The magnets are strong and keep the diffuser in place. I was tired of my Gary Fong diffusers slipping off--I lost two in one month! The diffuser produces a decent look. Cons: It was too heavy!! It adds so much weight to my already heavy gear. The weight also prevents my speedlight from staying in certain postions (degrees) while shooting. I end up having to hold the speedlight up with one hand, while holding my camera and shooting with the other. Very awkward. Produces red eye when directed directly at model. I don't like shooting with the flash pointing dirctly at my subject, but when bounced off the celing, I lost too much light �(Not so with the Fong--it gve a nice amount of light spilling off the outside of the diffuser, when the speedlight was directed towards the celing.) Other cons--it almost takes two people to wrangle the rubber band base onto the speedlight. I asked one of my college-aged students to do it for me--he couldn't manage on his own; it took the two of us! I probably would not recommend this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Top Heavy Sadly this modifier is too heavy for my Canon 600EX-RT. I am unable to tilt my flash when it is on. It just falls to a right angle. I have 3 Canon 600 EX-RT flashes and it does it with all of them. So now I have to try and figure out a way I can keep it in a titled position. (tape?) This however is not a great solution - as that would meant it is in a fixed position and would limited how I capture my photos and not at all much use when I am constantly changing the direction of my flash to accommodate subjects that move around or to achieve different exposure etc. Sorry but it is a complete fail on my Canon 600 Flash. I do not experience the same issue with my Yongnou 600 Ex_RT flash.� The tilt facility on it is much firmer/tighter so it does hold it (whether over time it will weaken from the weight is yet to be seen.) This MagBouce has to be used with the MagMod grip.� the MagMod� grib, contrary to advertisements is actually quite hard to put on your flash. The opening is quite small and has to be stretched to go around your flash head. I have managed to get it on my flash twice by myself and it takes time and effort. Usually I need assistance to do it. I have two of these (unfortunately!) so its not that one is faulty - they are both the same. They are incredibly hard to put on. As a result I generally leave it on. the downside to leaving it on is then packing my flash away - its wider at the top and longer so does not fit in the usual place. Also if I leave it on and then want to use the flash on a stand with a different modifier (i.e. lastolite soft box) I have to take the grip off as it will not fit through the adapter that holds the softbox. All of these things take up time and space. So basically I wish I never bought it as there are so many cons and pros to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed, works well Once you are able to pull the Maggrip magnetic base on to your flash it works great. �Attach as many Mag accessories as you desire. �Going to purchase another so I have one for each of my three Canon strobes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Studio Lighting without the Studio Set up If you don't have time to set up a studio light flash.� This will give you great results.
