The FF 5 x 6.5' HC Fast Frame Scrim Diffuser with Grid from Intellytech is for illuminating a large subject or area with light fixtures or natural light. With the Fast Frame system there's no assembly of softboxes or concern about speed rings dedicated to specific lights. The metal frame locks into place in seconds and can be supported upright or overhead with optional light stands and grip heads. You can pump light through the diffusion cloth for soft lighting or fill light. The cloth is often used with the kit's honeycomb grid to direct the light source and allow selective lighting. Another option is overhead use, like a butterfly, to tame the contrast of harsh light or the sun. It all fits in the included carrying bag.

Intellytech Fast Frame Reviews
good concept, albeit a bit light on construction
As I can't fit large floppies and modifiers in my vehicle, a collapsible modifier is a good solution. I have rented the Westcott Scrim Jim cine kit a few times, and always liked it. However, it doesn't have a grid, so when this product became available, I decided to give it a try. Online reviews were very positive, and price for such a large modifier is appealing. The size is very good and the grid is a selling feature (for me), but the lack of optional fabrics and plastic components force me to give this only 3 stars. If any of these are concerns for you, give the more expensive, more durable, Westcott Scrim Jim cine kits a look. As others have mentioned, it's a shame that Intellytech doesn't offer alternate fabric options. Being able to switch to a heavier cloth, or use a black cloth makes obvious sense. The main concern I have is with the plastic joints that the frame pivots on. I was told that these were metal, but they are definitely plastic. Thus, even though they may hold up for a couple years with delicate use by me, I don't have confidence they will hold up under the careless hands of a PA on set. This product would be fine in a studio, but I have doubts about how it will hold up in the field, and in transport with an unpadded bag.
Very easy to set up
Once you buildnit the first time, yiu can fol it wit the diffusion and grid. Tha clamps with pin that come with it are OK, but not great, i prefer cardelini clamps or even mafer clamps.
Fast and portable.
I'm always looking for ways to make set up faster. This definitely does the trick. Personally, I would like a thicker diffusion for the types of interviews I do so I might have a custom one made from some magic cloth. Also, the included diffusion has velcro to attach it to the frame and once the fabric is stretched tight the velcro seems like it might tear.
Super Nice product
A great product for the price! The bag that comes with is too small, after you have packed everything out for the first time then you will never be able to get it back into the bag again! :) But the product is recommended !!!
So far so good
As soon as I saw the reviews, I thought this would be a great way of saving time on set. And it is! There are no resellers in the UK so we ordered from B&H and it had arrived a few days later in great condition. For the price it's a great fast way of adding light. We used it on set yesterday for the first time. Blasted a Nanlite 500 and a 300 through it to add a natural soft light source to a loose set and it worked extremely well. I'd recommend this for a quick setup and when you want a larger light source than a soft box, or a back light for a larger setup. Only negative is it takes a long time to add the grid diffusion to the softbox, so once that's on there you won't want to remove it!
serves it's purpose
i'm a little nervous about ripping the eggcrate, thing looks pretty delicate and it's stretched quite tight when you put it on, so time will tell. would have been nice to get two flavors of diffusion, as the included one is really too thin for most purposes.
