Sunbounce 350-355STK2 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 Big Super Saver Starter Kit from Sunbounce is part of a system that does just that. Resembling a huge fly-swatter, this 6 x 8' (183 x 244 cm) 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, thanks to the included 2/3 stop diffusion screen, instead of glaring deep-shadowed sunlight broiling your subject. While the Sun-Swatter is easily handheld by its frame, why not use the kit's Boom Stick extension handle which gives you a maximum extension of 10.4’ (319 cm). 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, 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 most high-quality reflective and translucent materials
Reliability
The Sunbounce system allows every conceivable lighting situation to be perfectly controlled. Even strong wind is manageable
Mobility
The system can be quickly disassembled and is so light that you can take it anywhere

Sunbounce 350-355STK2 reviews

Sun Swatter Big Super Saver Starter Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Swatter is great! Boom stick is not. 6 x 8 swatter is a little large for the boom stick it came with. It's also very heavy with one person holding it. I had two people holding it outside then a little breeze bent it back the opposite direction I wanted it to shade. I tightened it as tight as it could go and it blew over again. I ended up doing the whole shoot with a person holding each side. I would love to see someone try to hold this size on a windy beach. I don't mean to be so negative because it did what I wanted it for and that was to shade my model on a sunny day. It wasn't a total lost. If you are going to buy this I would buy it without a boom stick and know you will more than likely need two people to hold it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Does What It Says and More I've met with the designer, Peter Geller, on various occasions and I know him very well. In fact, when I first purchased my California Sunbunce products in 2004, I reached out to Peter and after about a year, we finally met and became friends. He even came out to one of my shoots in the Virgin Islands and I've visited him in Germany. The first time he visited he showed me the proper way to use his products, as like most photographers, we tend to not read the instructions and do what our gut tells us. I have used many of his products since then and they have never failed me. Yes, this larger Sun Swatter can be a little more challenging in the windy areas, but with help, you can make it work just perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Traditional Quality I have been using California Sunbounce products for around 20 years. Unlike most products, the quality your used to, is still present. This is a welcomed surprise in an industry where we often accept a continuous decay in build quality. As for shooting, shaving nearly a stop off the top end while decreasing contrast does help. We can all dump 2400 Jules on a portrait client, however, families aren't models and I prefer a more understated look. Production doubles as I can shoot two groups because I have the good light sooner in the day. The kit has a great boom that sure exceeds the capabilities of my previous jury rigs. Expensive? Yes. Tradiotional quality comes at a price - It also comes with a service life
