Flash Light Bouncer, Fits most Portable Flash Units

I use this Vello Bounce defuser for softening the light out of my flash and spreads the light over the area. It diffuses the harsh flash and softens the bright flash. It comes with velcro tape to easily attach and remove the flash. There are other methods of attaching and removing the flash that do not use the tape. Try the LumiQuest UltraStrap. It stays on the flash with a stretching type of system that locks at the end with a velco lock. It's easily removed and used on other types of flash units.

Previous to getting this bouncer I was taping white 3x5 cards to my flash and while it worked okay, was flimsy and looked unprofessional. This unit solved that problem and it works even better. I would suggest getting the optional strap if you are averse to gluing Velcro attachment points on your flash or if you will be using the diffuser on multiple flashes.

Useful, practical, easy to carry, put on and take off

I used this bouncer on top of my new Godox flash at an event. It helped soften the light and bounce. I used the white for the cleanest color temperature. It also comes with a silver and a gold option. You can use either of those for a cooler or warmer brighter effect. I prefer the cleaner look. It is also quite easy to carry, put on and take off. It folds to slip into your camera bag without any bulkiness, and if you've already wrapped the cinch strap around your flash, you can just stick it on there once you get to your location in a few seconds, no hassle.

Se mueve un poco, necesitas ponerle unas ligas para sujetarlo

Perfect Lighting Accessory

I used this light bouncer in extreme light conditions.  I took photos in pitch darkness and the results were excellent.  Very little exposure correction was required afterwards.  In the same session I used it under more lighting conditions and the results were excellent just the same.  Since I have more than one flash gun, instead of using the velcro supplied with the light bouncer, I made two strips of velcro of my own to attach each onto a different flash gun and I worked perfectly and could easily change from one camera to the other very easily, without having to acquire another light bouncer.

Great flash bouncer.

I got this to use in situations where theres not any walls nearby to bounce off of and the ceilings in my new 1920s home are like 10 feet high and are hard to bounce off of. I couldnt see much difference in using the included silver reflector but could definitely see it using the gold one. All in all this is a great tool to use and was easy to attach to the flash.

Before Buying

This kit works geat for horizontal framed photographs with the flash head tilted straight up. However, when the camera is held vertically and the (Nikon SB-900 in my case) speedlight head is tilted up the bouncer kit redirects the light to the side not towards the subject. For vertical photographs tilting the speedlight head towards a side wall will allow the bouncer kit to redirect light towards the subject. In my opinion this is something to be aware of before buying if you plan to use on camera flash. Also on my kit one of the velcro attachments came off when I removed the reflector to turn it over from the gold side to the silver side. It was not really a big deal, since it was easily fixed with a new piece of velcro I had handy. It was just annoying.

A lot for the Money

I used my Vello Light Bouncer Kit a couple of days after they arrived. I took pictures for my community on Halloween night. I needed simple and effective tools to make that happen. My results earned great feedback because the pictures turned out so well. All in all, it's nice to have an a simple tool that is reasonably priced - It's a lot for the money I spent.

Does this work with the Godox AD200?

Does this work with the Godox AD200?
Asked by: Purtman
Do not know about godox but it should work just like speedlight. open bulb head may need a little thought but regular head should work like regular flash. Look up sean tucker on youtube. He uses a lot of godox. especially the gd200. When I save enough that is what i will get. With controller of course. Bowens type s flash holder and umbrella works with godox also. Bouncer kit just have to try it and see what it covers. This kit bvery cheap. Not like more expensive units. But it does work. But practice to see coverage.Have fun. That what photography is about!
