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.

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
