Manfrotto TriGrip Overview

The Manfrotto TriGrip 2-Stop Diffuser is an ideal light shaping tool for managing contrast or enhancing your portraits with creative fill-light. This model is a translucent diffuser that softens harsh light passing through it while absorbing 2 stops of brightness. It's especially valuable for eliminating deep shadows cast by strong sources such as the sun.

The TriGrip replaces the traditional round reflector with a unique triangular design incorporating a built-in handle. This comfortable grip allows for easy manipulation of the panel without a stand or support and is especially useful when you are working alone.

The triangular shape features a rigid grip handle at one corner. It collapses down to 1/3 its open size.

Handle Broke 2nd use

This is a great size and fairly easy to use (on a calm day - not so much with even light wind and assistant ). maybe better for in studio use? It folds up easily. The handle broke (plastic grip, two pieces, little tabs that hold it together internally) on mine at the second use, need to tape it so it stays together.

Handle broke seconds after unpacking it.

For the price, this reflector should last quite some time. Unfortunately, and apparently, the weakest part is the large handle that makes this reflector appealing in the first place. The handle needs to be able to withstand the torque of moving the reflectors around one handed. However, it is extremely cheap and poorly made. It's almost laughable how bad it's made. Every point where the two sides of the handle connect cracked and crumbled immediately after opening the reflector. The handle needs to be made of metal, not feta cheese.

Doesn't fold down compactly

Unlike other reflectors, this does not fold down compactly. Folded diameter is ~24 - that's twice as large as other 48 reflectros.

What's there to say-- it's a Lastolite product. Well-made, sturdy, nice balance when held by the handle, light weight, price is okay, and all the other good things to say about a Lastolite.. I did loads of research on which stop would suit me best. I decided a one-stop would give me the most versatility. Your requirements may be different.

Not worth the price.

I ended up not using this very much, I still use my larger reflectors most of the time.

Worst ever

This came defective with a small fold. I could never get it back into the case. This item cost me hours of pain. I had to send back in a huge box because I could never get back to a compacted size. 'BH was great with returns, but what a waste of time.

Very useful and easy to hold

Lastolite also makes a one-stop version of this diffuser. Any thoughts on one stop vs. two stops and when is best to use one vs. the other?
Asked by: Tracy
Hello Tracy! I'm from South Australia and I own both the 1 stop and 2 stop diffuser. I find that the one stop diffuser is best for diffusion as it is sufficient to block out harsh light as well as blending some light and dark to even the tones without the risk of making it too dark for the subject. I've never had to use the 2 stop trigrip as a diffuser. I just use my 2 stop diffuser as a reflector (when covered with the relevant cover). I hope that helps!

Do you recommend the 48 or 30 for outdoors in moderately windy conditions. I have a 30 6 in 1 from Westcott but find it too small but think 48 might be too large? .
Asked by: Darren
I suppose it is a little more difficult to use in the wind. However, its large size helps bounce more light and also works really well for blocking light

Asked by: MARTIN B.
