Sunbounce Sun-Swatter Pro Overview

  • 1Description

Fashion photographers, who pretty much invented the location shoot, have known for a long time that when it comes to light, natural is best - provided you can control it. The Sun-Swatter Pro Starter Kit from Sunbounce is part of a system that does just that. Resembling a huge fly-swatter, this 4 x 6' light shaper stretches a translucent screen across its high tensile strength aluminum frame.

A couple of minutes of easy setup gets you a very large patch of bright open shade with manageable contrast, instead of glaring deep-shadowed sunlight broiling your subject. While the Sun-Swatter is easily handheld by its frame a better option is the included a Boom Stick extension handle. Also included are a grip head for stand mounting and a set of clips to tighten the fabric. The kit fits neatly in the included soft carrying case.

Extreme Stability
The frames can be quickly disassembled and are made of the highest-quality aluminum and are extremely stable, even in windy conditions.
Top-Quality Materials
All reflector screens are manufactured using the world's best reflective and translucent materials. Only the most high-quality materials are used to manufacture photo and transport bags.
The Sunbounce System allows every conceivable lighting situation to be perfectly controlled. Even strong wind on the beach won't disrupt your exposures.
Wherever you're shooting, the Sunbounce Light System can be quickly disassembled and is so light that you can take it anywhere.
Unlimited Possibilities
High up on a tripod or perfectly controlled by hand, the Sunbounce Light System always offers a professional solution. Just as in the studio, you can create one or more permanent light sources outside.
Quick Shooting
Natural light is always available on demand. No more waiting for the flash to recycle when using the system, at any shutter speed.

Sunbounce Sun-Swatter Pro Reviews

Sun-Swatter Pro Starter Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 80% satisfied with this Build quality is good but I have only use it on 4-5 shoots so far so I will have to see how it holds up over time. It's best quality is it's reach. You can extend it over a subject and get out of the way of the camera angle, especially shooting a horizontal frame for cinema framing. My criticism is that it's not quick to break down and also it must be used from an upwind position. Any breeze will scoop under it and flip it up, back and over onto the operator's side. This is due to a gravity strap which holds it from falling on the talent. I wish they had designed a fully locking knuckle at the pivot point. Over all I'm gald I purchase this product and will be using it a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Studio-Like Quality Lighting in the Field I own the 4x6 and 6x8 Sun Swatters.? The smaller one is great for one or two people.? The 6x8 is excellent for small groups.? Both give soft, smooth light on the subjects your photographing.? I augment the Sunbounce light with a softbox fill flash on the shadowed side of the subject.? ?Compared to the light from a reflector and bright sun, I have found a studio-like quality using the Sun Swatter.? I love the products, but acknowledge the wind issues of other reviewers.? ?? I have attached two photos from a recent shoot at mid-day, no clouds, in the Arizona sun.? Comparisons to similar shots without the Sun-Swatter make it an easy decision for me.? The Sun-Swatter is my Friend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice piece of kit Great diffusion! The sun-swatter is well built and is easy to use. It is heavy when it is extended, but that is expected. Definitely a must have. Way better than the collapsible disc diffusers.

what is the stop diffusion for the panel?
Asked by: Lynne G.
The Sunbounce Sun-Bouncer Pro Translucent -2/3 Diffuser Screen (4 x 6') (B&H # SUSSBP46T23) included in the Sunbounce Sun-Swatter Pro Starter Kit cuts light by approximately 2/3 stop and does not affect the overall color balance.
