Profoto 100671 overview

  • 1Description

The 4-Leaf Barndoor and Grid Holder for Profoto Zoom Reflector mounts directly onto the Profoto Zoom Reflector. It features springs for mounting filters and/or honeycomb grids. It blocks undesired light from the subject or the camera lens and shapes the light output of the flash head when used without the grids.

Barndoors, snoots, grids, and filters are essential accessories for any lighting system. These devices alter the shape, intensity, or color of the light output from your flash heads. Consider them as a painter would a brush or a sculptor would a knife or chisel.

Use of a barndoor set will result in a shaft of light, when it is attached to the front of the reflector of your light source. The size of the shaft of light will be determined by the opening of the leaves, and the distance of the light from the subject. Rotating the barndoor set will determine the angle of the shaft of light. A 4-leaf barndoor provides more light control than a 2-leaf barndoor set.

4-Leaf Barndoor and Grid Holder for Profoto Zoom Reflector is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Yeah it's pricy for what it is - but it works perfectly. Flimsy, maybe but it's also LIGHTWEIGHT which is important. That said I have a hard time seeing it being broken to the point where its useless in any reasonable amount of time. So I don't understand the critic. All barndoors will end up looking horrible from old gaffer and daily abuse - you just bend it back into shape and it will continue to work just fine. It's a pro accesory for a premium brand. Can't be bothered to fiddle with 3rd party accessories that may or may not fit and work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insanely overpriced but work great These are really effective, and regardless of the other comments these are well built and solid - and at the same time light and flimsy feeling. But I have used them on every shoot for the past few years, and they work as well as the day I bought them. The price, like all profoto accessories is ridiculous though. These should cost $50 not $. Having said that, I don't regret buying them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Control Your Light I had struggled a bit in my portraiture with poor light control. Using a zoom reflector with grid was a good start but I needed to flag the light to control the fall. The Profoto Barndoors snap on the outer ring of the Zoom Reflector 2 and then can be rotated. Each of the 4 blades is independently adjustable so you can flag from one side or more. The Barndoor comes with spring loaded clips to fix gels in place = very handy. If you are using Zoom Reflector 2 as kickers or hair lights, you want the Barndoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A simple addition creates options Great addition to the kit. Now enables greater ability to craft and refine the light source. Had heard comments about it's build quality but found this to be hype, the barn doors work beautifully. I will be buying more of these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional, but flimsy and feels cheap I use the barndoor to block some light for my still life set up. Functionality its ok, but the build quality is like china made item. It does not says the profoto quality at all. For the price I paid for this item, I expect much more that this. I am not sure how long this thing will last. My Hensel barndoor is much better build than this. I can see one of the rod that holds the leaf will snap after extensive use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy, and poorly built These barn doors quickly became bent out of shape with minimal use. They also spin of their own free will when attached to a reflector, so they have to be gaffered to stop them moving. I have some broncolor barn doors from the 80's that I use of some bron heads, and they are indestructible. Barn doors are an important light modifier, but you wouldn't know it from this Profoto product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great light shaper Good for flagging the spread from a zoom reflector and also handy to hold colored gels. Pricey, but it's from profoto so you expect that it will be expensive. If you buy top quality, you're rewarded when you go to resell it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from it works! Does the job just fine To control the light from all sides, light weight. Its kinda flimsy, for the price I thought it would have been more solid.
