Bower SFD006 overview

  • 1Description

Complete with a tilting bracket, this Flash Accessory Kit from Bower features a whole host of items for modifying the light that comes from your speedlight. It includes four different shaping accessories plus seven color filters, all of which attach around the head of the light with included hook-and-loop straps. This attachment option makes the kit compatible with most shoe-mounted flash units available on the market.

The first item is a honeycomb grid, which narrows the beam angle to illuminate a specific area of a background or subject. The snoot does a similar job, creating a circular spotlight that is even more precise and dramatic in its effect. If a softer light quality is desired, a mini silver reflector can be used to bounce the flash onto the subject, and a softbox diffuses the beam to provide soft and even illumination. Seven color gels are also available for creative effect: full CTO, 1/2 CTO, 1/4 CTO, blue, yellow, bright red, and plus green.

The final component of the kit is a flash holder bracket with a cold shoe, which serves to place the speedlight onto a stand and articulate it. It can tilt the light forward and backwards for precise positioning, and features a round hole with a locking knob for attaching an optional umbrella or other lighting accessory. At the bottom, a 3/8"-16 thread is complemented by a 1/4"-20 bushing adapter to allow the bracket to be used with either screw size.

    Bower SFD006 reviews

    Flash Accessory Kit is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wrong Velcro for me I use several PROLITE flash modifiers and they work pretty well. But, the Bower Flash Accessory Kit looked good, providing even more modifiers. I tucked the bounce card into my pocket heading out to shoot a news story, and, at the site, realized that Bower has the "smooth" hook-and-loop fabric sewn into its products -- so it wouldn't "stick" to my "Hook" strip already mounted on the flash. While this is a good way to force folks to use ONLY their products -- using a "backward" set up for hook-and-loop mounts -- I find it very discouraging. To use the Bower products, I'll have to remove the Velcro strips on my flash, mount theirs, and never again use the PROLIGHT products.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK on a budget I got this on a sale special that easily made it worth the purchase. If you are getting this for the gels, I'd think twice. I have time to do setups but if you are working quickly with high volume, I'd go with the Mag Mod system that allows you to swap out the accessories very quickly. The gels with this system are honestly quite a pain. I use the "on flash" pull out diffuser to hold the gels instead of the holder that came with this kit. This greatly increases the chances of the gels falling out or even losing them if you are not in a studio. 4 stars because of sale price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality kit, reasonable price I wanted to try out different light modifiers without breaking the bank and I'm glad I bought this kit. Straight forward use, adapted my SB-600's easily and modified the light as I expected. Of course the size of the modifiers are rather small so wouldn't work as well for large subjects.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value I have not used the kit yet. I do like all of the accessories and plan on using them in the near future. After that I will submit a review.
