LumiQuest LQ-125 overview

  • 1Description

This LumiQuest Pocket Bouncer Kit consists of the Pocket Bouncer, Gold Insert, and Silver Insert.

The Pocket Bouncer enlarges and redirects the light at a 90° angle from the flash to soften the quality of light and distribute it over a wider area. While no exposure compensation is necessary with automatic flashes, operating distances are somewhat reduced.

The Pocket Bouncer is used to soften the flash light output with minimal light loss; to be used with slaves or alone where low ceilings are not available, or where more direct but soft fill light is desired. It attaches to the flash head in seconds with the included touch-tab fasteners.

The silver insert adds a specular look to highlights, particularly useful for weddings. The gold insert adds a warm tone to the scene, particularly useful for outdoor fill flash. These inserts attach with hook and loop dots to the bounce surface of the Pocket Bouncer to further modify the quality of light.

    LumiQuest LQ-125 reviews

    Pocket Bounce Kit - for Shoe Mount Flash is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for outdoors or high ceilings This is great when you have nothing to bounce off of. The gold insert casts a great warm light simulating sunrise/sunset. It reduces the range/distance of your flash, but if you can get in close enough to your subject it really does a great job of lighting them with out harsh shadows. For its compact, light weight size, it is a must have and it lives permanently in my camera bag, you never know when it will come in handy. My only con that does not fit in the cons section below is that I don't like the idea of permanently sticking the Velcro to my flash. I currently use very strong elastic bands (think lobster here).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice and easy to use I'm a photographer mainly working in the high Arctic. Well, i bought this item some weeks ago. It produces softer shadows like promised and it is very easy to handle. I like the golden insert, it gives an amazing warm light. BUT: As i work in cold conditions - this item is not usable here. Even in ONLY -6C i breaks like glass, not talking about my last shooting here in the kindergarden when we had outside -18C and strong wind. I ended up in covering the entire item in Duck Tape what helps a little. The only one solution of using it in the cold is to put it on your flash and not to take it off the flash until you get inside again - otherwise it will fall apart!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works Shooting picture in close range (6' or less) with my Canon XTi & 430EX flash produce washed out faces. Bouncing the flash to ceiling (or wall) help some but in many situations, no wall near by or the ceiling is too high (and not horizontal). This works quite well. For indoor lighting, the base white works best. The silver liner made the flesh tone some what cool white and the gold liner made the flesh tone too warm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used by professional worldwide I NEVER use my flash without it. Eliminates harsh direct flash light. Great to use even in sunlite conditions to remove unwanted shadows. Get the kit that includes the pocket bounce (white) & the gold & Silver insert which handily velcro to the pocket bounce shade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft lighting and no shadows . . . I use the Lumiquest bounce kit to soften the lighting when flash would be too harsh. This also will soften the shadows that many times are so harsh when a flash is used. It's an inexpensive and simple solution to a common problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very portable. Works good when you want to soften the light in portrait photography and can't afford to loose much flash power. Looks very professional. Portable, very lite. But be aware that it is very easy to miss align it when attaching to your speedlite and end up with a picture where only the buttom half of your image is exposed to light, expessially when you use bigger zoom lenses. Always test your beam angle after putting it on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this product Folds flat and comes with a nice clear pouch for easy storage, gold and silver inserts easily attached and removed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good simple, functional, compact product I purchased a couple of these along with the cinch straps so I didn't have to attach velcro to my expensive flashes. This is by far my favorite diffuser. It's compact so it's easy to leave in the bag. It does a good job of diffusing and spreading the light. With a flash like a 580EX II that has a manualy adjustable zoom head you can further control how the light spills out of it.
