Honl Photo HONL-GRID8 overview

  • 1Description

The HonlPhoto 1/8" Speed Grid is part of the Honl Speed System, which allows you to add a line of different light modifiers to your flash unit. The 1/8" Speed Grid attaches to the Speed Strap (offered separately), and dramatically narrows the beam of light that's put out by your shoe mount or handle mount flash. The effect is a small circle of light, with the size depending on flash-to-subject distance.

Two versions are available, one with 1/4" grids and one with 1/8" grids. The 1/8" version produces a spot a few degrees narrower then the 1/4" version.

Ideal for dramatic lighting effects
Made of rugged ABS/polycarbonate

    Honl Photo HONL-GRID8 reviews

    1/8" Speed Grid for Speed System is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Engineering While the idea of a grid for a shoe-mount flash is a good one, the design of these speed grids leaves a lot of room for further refinment. First, the so-called attachment system using Velcro straps is amatuer-ish and does not hold the grid to the flash head face securely. Apparently, Honl tried a one size-fits-all-flashes approach, but it's a failure in my opinion. Attaching the grid with Velcro to a Velcro band - which is an additional $10 option - that wraps around the flash head leaves the grid loose and sloppy. For the price of these grids, which isn't cheap, they should precisely fit your Canon or Nikon flash without resorting to using Velcro. They are not speedy to attach to a flash and a not worth the cost. I regret buying these expensive pieces of junk.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job This is the only honeycomb grid for small flashes as far as I know. It is made to fit all hotshoe flashes and as such comes up a bit big on my Canon 580exII. Better too big than too small. It works great but I wish a) It attached better and b) It was a better fit for the Canon 580exII but i'm just being picky now. FYI; It attaches via two velcro strips, one on each side which attaches to the Honl speed strap or other velcro (not supplied) on the flash head. I think it should have more points of contact for attachment but it seems to stay on when used so hasn't been a problem thus far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect spread of light Anyone who knows about lighting knows you must have an idea of what you want before buying products. Grids work best when you want the light to fall off towards the edges of the spread where a snoot has harder edges. This 1/8 is absolutely perfect in every aspect of the type of work I do. Love it. Product comes with its own microfiber carrying cloth which keeps it looking nice and dust free.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but tricky to aim This gadget should be billed as a short snoot. I wish it came with a ring for attaching to a lanyard around my neck, as it can be held in front of the speedlite by hand when needed on a shot-by-shot basis. That said, at a recent wedding shoot I forgot to use it until the end, and when I did it missed the subject most of the time. Maybe it's a practice issue, or they were too far away, or I wasn't holding it tightly against the flash... as I said: A short snoot. I like it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very handy I don't always have a need for a grid spot in the field but when i do this one works great. I need to set-up and break down quickly and the Honl System is perfect for a working photojournalist. I use a ThinkTank Retrospective 30 as my light kit and the 1/8 speed grid slides into one of the pockets perfectly. I works as advertised. Basically the Honl system allows me to concentrate on composing a nice shot instead of fighting with my gear.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but expensive Nice to have the convenience of a grid spot being so small. Be careful packing it so you don't scrunch the grid
    Date published: 2009-09-30
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Build Very solidly built. A little oversized for my lumopro lp180 because it is a one size fits all deal. The $ velcro strap for the flash head (sold separately) is mostly to keep a half inch gap between the grid and flash head so it doesn't melt. I didn't buy it and am DIY rigging something.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built Tough, Works Well Fits 430exii, 580exii, and Vivitar 285HV (with the zoom hood on). Rugged frame construction protects the less-rugged matrix of straws that modify the light. It's a little on the bulky side. Creates tight spotlight with consistent results among the abovementioned flashes.
