Visual Echoes FX5 Better Beamer Flash Extender for Use with Telephoto Lenses - for Canon 430EX & Pentax AF500FTZ
The Visual Echos FX5 Better Beamer Flash Extender will help 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, and 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 1/2 oz.
The FX5 version is designed to costum fit the Canon 430EX and Pentax AF500FTZ flashes.
