Honl Photo HONL-SNOOT8 overview

  • 1Description

The HonlPhoto 8" Speed Snoot/Reflector is part of the Honl Speed System, which allows you to add a line of different light modifiers to your flash unit. This 8" long Speed Snoot/Reflector attaches to the Speed Strap (offered separately), and can be used either as a snoot or a reflector.

Used as a reflector, this flash accessory can be used to bounce and scatter the light output of a flash unit, to provide a more pleasing and even exposure. Shaped as a snoot, it will concentrate the light output from the flash into a much tighter beam, producing a dramatic cinematic lighting effect.

Made of tough ballistic nylon
Gray interior produces a soft falloff

    Honl Photo HONL-SNOOT8 reviews

    8" Speed Snoot/Reflector for Speed System is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 61.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not pro level The idea here is a good one: A semi-stiff bounce card with lots of velcro so that it can be used as a snoot or whatever else you can bend into submission to do. However, this item is a bit too flimsy. Once bent or folded, it doesn't want to return to it's previous state. It stays wrinkled and bent. Which, if it has been folded up in your bag, can make deploying it as a snoot not terribly effective because the creases don't flatten out, and get in the way. It needs something semi stiff stitched into it, like some kind of heavy, soft plastic. I'm going to open mine up and add a layer of something to keep it laying flat and wrinkle-free.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small flash portraits! I've been using the 8 snoot, in conjunction with a 5 and different grids, with my Nikon speedlights, for simple one and two light portraits, and I love what I can do with them! The 8 is great for getting a nice tight throw from your light, without having to worry about all the bounce you'd get by just zooming the flash head. No extra light on surrounding walls, ceilings, etc. Lays out flat, so it's super-portable, and easy to throw on with the velcro. Great little line of products, highly recommended!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done I gave this 4 stars, but in my mind is more like 3. Don't get me wrong, it gets the job done, but it is somewhat deceiving as to the product description. It is extremely flimsy attached to the flash when using as a bounce. You need to figure out a fold and velcro format just right in order to get it to hold steady. Don't try flipping the camera horizontal to vertical with it on or it may flap off. Same goes with the snoot. When aligned perfectly, it works great. But the trick is getting the snoot to align perfectly to force the light. If you don't get it right you end up with a hard shadow cutting out the light in your image. Takes some trial and error. Bottom line, works great when its on. Not so much when its not. Would've been happier with the purchase if the price was about $20 less. That combined with the strap that you must buy separately....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is vey well made and does a great job as both a reflective bounce and as a snoot. The fact that is rolls up and is portable gives is enough for me to get that over the standard hard plastic snoot. Like Honl's other products, this is very well made, but does require the purchase of a Speedstrap to attach it to the flash. I already have a bunch of his other products so I have Speedstraps, but if this is your first Honl, don't forget to add one of those to the cart as well (except for the Traveler8 softbox which comes with a strap).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice idea, bad execution Works great as a snoot, but if you try as a reflector, fails miserably. The velcro is designed such that as a snoot, it holds very tight, attaching the entire length of the 8 snoot. However, put it on as a reflector as shown in the picture and there are these tiny velcro attachments that don't sufficiently hold the reflector. I barely move my camera/flash and the reflector wobbles horribly. It has fallen down limp on me several times. For $ (for speed strap and reflector), this is unacceptable. Going back to B&H...sorry gents.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but needs better velcro design As snoot, works very well. Great value if using mainly for that purpose. As a bounce/fill card it's decent, but harsher than I expected it to be. only other gripe is that the attaching velcro is mainly in tiny strips, which does not allow much room for adjustment, especially if attaching to existing velcro on your flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged Snoot/Reflector I've heard a lot of photographers complain about the prices of Honl stuff, but I'm a firm believer in 'you get what you pay for'. Yeah, this guy is about $30, but you'll probably never have to replace it. Quality manufacturing and material. Would definitely buy it again in a heartbeat, and actually probably will pick up more to use on multiple Speedlites at once.Not much to say about how it functions. It's a basic snoot/reflector and works as it should.The only con for me, is that I think it should include the Speed Strap so you can attach it to your Speedlite without having to buy something separately.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 8 Speed Snoot as a snoot it works great. concentrated light in a certain area! as a reflector, not so good. a 3x5 index card and rubberband is better. it will not stay up and in position without folding over when used as a reflector. the 5in version is probably better for that. overall, as a snoot it is excellent. so far that is about all i am using it for due to the fact it wont stay up as reflector, but oh well. thats why we have bounce capable heads anyway.
