Visual Echoes FX6 Overview

The Visual Echos FX6 Better Beamer Flash Extender will help to increase the reach of the flash, and increases the flash output by about 2 to 3 f/stops. It focuses and concentrates the output of the flash into a narrow beam via the Fresnel screen that gets positioned in front of the flash. This allows shooting at greater distances and shooting with smaller apertures.

The Better Beamer is designed to be used with lenses 300mm and longer. Its rugged injection-molded plastic side supports are attached to the flash head by a sturdy elastic "hook-and-loop" band. The rigid supports hold the Fresnel screen in place in both horizontal and vertical formats. Just weighs 2.5 oz.

The FX6 version is designed to fit the Nikon SB-5000 AF, SB-910 AF, SB-900 AF Speedlights and the Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT, without any need for use of additional "shims."

Excellent for wildlife and birding photography, where long-distance fill-flash is often required, especially with a bright sunlight background. The use of fill flash opens up the shadows without the appearance that a flash was used.
When used with TTL flash metering, exposure is automatically set by the camera and flash, and no special compensation is required.
Reduces the drain on battery power by two-thirds.

Better Beamer flash Extender really works!

After assembling the Better Beamer I added addition telco strips to the inside enabling and to my rectangular speed lite head. This created a super strong connection that would hold up in high wind situations. I tested it with my cat, Storm, and it worked beautifully. I plan on using it with bird photography.

I have used this only a few times so far, but it seems to extend the working distance of my flash for the bird photography I do. One issue I don't understand is why the beam it throws is mostly rectangular, rather than a circular beam. With the fresnel lens I expected it to be round, which would isolate the subject better.

Works as needed

I purchased this to aid me in taking bird photos for fill light. I haven't had too many opportunities to use yet, but for the times I have tried it, it seems to do as wanted. It is limited on how far it will extend your flash, so keep that in mind.

Great tool

I like how this folds up so it takes little space in the camera bag. It works great for sending flash out when photographing birds and other wildlife. I have used another brand in the past but it was bulky and hard to work with. This FX6 is the best.

throws the light out surprisingly well

works surprising well can throw the light out very well at about 50 to 70 feet to lighten shadows. Not going to reach very well beyond 70 feet even at full power. But worth having in your bag.

The FX1 would be a better fit but you will still have to modify your flash to make a snug fit by using weather stripping.

Will this fit a hammer head flash like Sunpak 555 ...

Will this fit a hammer head flash like Sunpak 555 or a Metz 45 series?
Asked by: DHEERAJ
The key dimension is going to be that of the height of the sides of the flash heads, from the bottom of the head to the top of it when it's facing forward. The Sunpak 555 is going to be especially challenging to fit because the head itself is difficult to access, so that would be less likely to work. But as for your Metz 45, if the sides are 1.5" or only very slightly shorter (please be sure to measure them) and flat (not curved like the Nikon SB-80DX), the FX4's so-called "ears" which grab onto 1.5" high sides would make it the best fit of the Better Beamer series (BH #VIFX4): https://bhpho.to/3oLAsHW It should be noted that your experience and preferences with respect to fit may vary, so we would invite you to make your purchase and hold onto your packaging materials for a return if needed, in accordance with with our return policy: https://bhpho.to/3yuPExH
