This Impact Diffuser Sock is a heat-resistant (see note), 11" nylon fabric light softener ringed with strong elastic for a snug fit around metal strobe head reflectors. The diffuser softens the light output and reduces it by 1 stop.

Diffuser Socks are stackable, offering the opportunity to increase the diffusion effect while reducing the light output.

Note: Intended for use on flash heads or fluorescent sources. Do not use on continuous hot light sources.

    11" Diffuser Sock is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A best solution I used to use diffusing sheets and acrylic. This is far superior. It is inexpensive, easy, and folds up to take no space. I use it on inexpensive 10.5 clamp lights from the hardware store.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly effective Didn't expect much to putting this over a small light dish, but figured at this price it wouldn't hurt to try it. It is surprisingly effective at softening and evening light when you're close to the subject. I use this in a cheap dish that has an edison base, so I can use an LED bulb and not worry about trapping heat within the dish. Much more compact than an umbrella or softbox and for close-in with 60-100 watts this does the trick.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does its job I purchased the 10 diffuser sock. It does its job diffusing the light adequately, and can sustain the heat produced by the 23w florescent bulb I have in the reflector. However, the bulb touches the diffuser, so I had to tape some cardboard to the reflector to prevent the diffuser from touching the bulb.I would recommend using a larger diffuser and reflector for larger bulbs. I feel like$ was high for the 10 sock.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit tight on Speedo 11 but works I've tried a few different manufacturers of light socks for my Speedotron reflectors, including Speedotron, and Xenophon, but this one seems to be the best so far. If it were a quarter inch smaller, it wouldn't fit a Speedotron 11 inch reflector, but it fits, just barely. I'm going to try the 13 inch and see if that's a better fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Item Does the job it's designed to do, and well. I wouldn't use a high wattage modeling lamp continuously in it's presence though. You could, for long enough to see the lights effect if needed, then remove the bulb. Produces a pleasant soft light. And as always, be aware of spill. Bring a barndoor along. You will most likely need it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from 11 inch Diffuser sock I am a fashion/beauty photographer and I shoot with Speedotron brown series equipment. It is extremely hard to find socks that will fit the 11 inch reflector. It worked well, just wish that impact would give just approximately an extra inch so the diffuser would have just a little bit of give.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More useful today than ever This diffuser is especially great with today's new fluorescent bulbs. They run so cool, heat is no problem and the diffuser is a poor man's light control that works great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says it will do This is as straight forward as you can get. Remove diffuser from packaging, place over light. Wow...pretty easy, and it works. Stop reading this and just order one, or two.
