  • 1Description

The Vello Light Shapers for Portable Flash is a 4 x 7.5" two-sided bounce card, matte black on one side and reflective white on the other. The white side can be used as a bounce card, to bounce and scatter the light output of the flash. The black side can be used as a flag to keep light from flaring into your lens when using a flash as a background or hair light. Touch-tab fasteners are included for attaching it to your on-camera flash. Two Light Shapers can also act as a set of barndoors.

    Light Shapers for Portable Flash is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple, efficient, great! I have bigger flash diffusers. This is great. It is wide as the flash so I can store it with the strobe itself in the camera bag (just make sure the velcro is on the side up or it may get stuck onto the camera bag's velcro straps. It looks well made quality materials. it really diffuses the light in a pleasant mode. It is great also for off camera flash for a more directional fill that would mimic a small soft box. I may buy one more. It comes with sticky velcro strips, but it is better to get a Vello Cinch strap. You can not go wrong with this one. Simple and great. Nice diffusion and takes no space in the bag like other kinds of diffusers. Great for traveling light.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful, but cumbersome Once my old Metz died, I replaced it with a 430EXII, which didn't have a built in bounce card. This was a cheap, effective solution that provides a much larger source. My results were useable, but not spectacular. I mostly use speedlights to bounce, so this will just sit in my bag as an emergency source. I also worry about durability, as it's quite large, and fairly flimsy. Does not attach well to the smaller squares on the side of the speedlight, and I had to double up the wide velcro strips on the top. It is lightweight though, unlike some bounce and diffusers, so it won't weaken the head of your speedlight. The large velcro on the bounce itself will get caught in your camera bag, so it's not always easy or quiet to get this in and out if your bag is modular. All that said, it serves its purpose and is very inexpensive, so

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap, handy, durable and easy to use I use these now in place of the paper biz cards or index cards I used to tape to my flashes. Bigger surface gives more fill, which is handy when flash is mounted off-camera at a distance from the subject. Ability to mount, remove and reposition without futzing with tape makes life easier. Sturdy, durable, simple, cheap and effective. What's not to like?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and great. fits in any bag This reflector works great. It fits in every bag and it produce a nice soft light. Good quality lasting material. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because it could be a few dollars cheaper or it could include the cinch strap. The cinch strap is not essential (velcro stickers can be a substitute), but it improves the functionality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well It does what it's supposed to do. Only trouble is it's pretty large for mirrorless systems. It dwarfs my Nissin i40. Also to attach it you need to use the self-adhesive velcro strips on your flash. Personally I hate glueing things to my equipment so I have a work-around with a Lumi-Quest UltraStrap that I had lying around.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light Shapers for portable flash by vell It has been very useful especially because of the final effect of now having the light straight to the subject but more smooth. The only problem is once you stuck the velcro to your flash, it aint coming of as it's with glue, and that's a bit tricky on a long term. but mainly a good product easy and quick.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am going to by this again This product is great for bouncing your flash. I tried this only a few times because I only got it a few days ago, but it works great. You get even lighting across the whole picture, wide angle, close ups & extreme close ups. It's also easy to set up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine Works perfectly fine. Keep in mind that it doesn't bend or change shapes, it's a rigid card. Consider buying the Vello cinch strap in order to avoid using the adhesive velcro which is included.
