Vello FD-200 overview

  • 1Description

This Vello Light Bouncer Kit for Portable Flashes spreads and redirects the light from a portable flash to soften the quality of light and distribute it over a wider area. No exposure compensation is necessary with automatic flashes, but operating distances will be somewhat reduced.

The Light Bouncer can be used with slaves, or alone where low ceilings are not available, or where more direct but soft fill light is desired. It attaches to the flash head in seconds with the included touch-tab fasteners.

The silver insert adds a specular look to highlights. The gold insert adds a warm tone to the scene, particularly useful for outdoor fill-flash. These inserts attach with touch-tab fasteners to the bounce surface of the Light Bouncer to further modify the light.

Fits nearly any portable flash
Lightweight and portable
Attaches quickly and easily
Includes gold and silver reflectors to enhance skin tones and other lighting scenarios

    Vello FD-200 reviews

    Light Bouncer Kit for Portable Flashes is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great modifier but its already falling apart First I want to say that the light that comes from the bounce kit is beautiful, I only really use the white bounce card because the others don't produce the quality light I need. I would still recommend this product and continue to use it but the problem I found is that only after a weeks of using it the white bounce card started to bubble up and eventually fall off the backing of the card so now I have an awesome black -bounce card lol After some super glue and a little love I have it working again but its starting to happen again. The Velcro has already popped off in half the places too. Like I said its a great product but don't count on using it for very long.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Bounce Diffuser I use this on my flash unit when I shoot indoor events. The gold and silver foil inserts it comes with are really cool. The gold one is especially useful for warming up your photos. If you do use the inserts, the light is not diffused as much because they are so reflective. If you're shooting with a lens that's wider than about 24mm, you will see dark edges where the light doesn't spread to. Take the inserts out and just use the white, and you can go at least as wide as 18mm without problems. Other than that issue, it works great as a simple bounce diffuser. It's the best value for one like this I've seen on the internet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy but big This is a handy thing to have but it is big, which of course is what you need for even light. You loos a couple of stops using it but as long as you have a powerful flash thats not a problem. The warm gel is really what makes this a standout product. Cheap so its worth a try if you aren't happy with the built in bounce flaps (on many flashes) or taping cardboard to the flash head. You need to put the velcro as far down as possible on the flash head and use a rubber band around it. Yes, it will mess up the look of your flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition This is just what I've been looking for in an affordable diffuser for the flash. I like the quality of the light that it sends out. I didn't think I would like the silver and gold reflectors to add in, but it turns out I like the look they give better than the white bounce. The silver works well for fill flash in daylight. The gold reflector worked to balance the color of the flash with indoor/incandecent lights. This made the light from the flash closer to the same color for a nice, less glaring, light source.I took the advice of other reviewers and added a couple of rubber bands to assist the hook & loop attachements. I shot an event all evening with no problems from the Bouncer Kit. This is a great addition to your camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unobtrusive size for small events This came as part of a set, and I have experimented with it and find it it a nice unobtrusive size and shields the flash light from other people in a crowded room. It gives a little more reach to the standard bounce card or off-axis flash. The wide Vello Cinch Strap came in the set and works perfectly with this. The Bouncer is light weight and stiff, so with the Cinch Strap you can whip around taking pictures without it flopping around. Only plastic, but folds flat, keeps an angle, and can be sponged clean if need be.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight Bounce It is a great bounce, it's construction is not super, but it does a great job. I have used it several times since purchasing this. I refuse to put velcro sticky stuff on my flashes, as that is just not acceptable to me. As I also sew, I created my own velcro strap with some elastic around it for my Speedlite 430EXII. Instead of purchasing a velcro strap to go around it, go visit your local fabric store for some velcro options. Then, ask someone who sews to make you something. I have a softbox that I use also, but I wanted a new bounce to replace my old one, and this works well.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flimsy This came free with my Nikon SB910 and that is the right price. Compared to others it is flimsy and does not fold well for storage in your bag. Does it work, well, yes, it reflects the flash which is what it supposed to do. I also have found Vello Customer service to be something to avoid after dealing with them regarding another item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Bouncer Kit Used this product with my Flash. The Kit comes with two clip on by velcro cardboard additions cut to shape. One was Gold, the other Silver. Without these cards the reflector is White. There is a temperature difference when using the clip on cards.The difference is 150 Degrees Kelvin between the White and the Gold reflector when taking a RAW photo. The only down side to this kit is that the reflectors are made of cardboard, and I worry that they will end up bending. I plan to reinforce them by putting some aluminum tape onto the back of the cards.
