Graslon 4500 overview

  • 1Description

The Graslon Spark Pop-Up Flash Diffuser softens the light of your DSLR camera's built-in pop-up flash in order to minimize backscatter and hard shadows and go easier on your subject's eyes. The diffuser is significantly greater in size than the built-in flash, and slips over it, creating a larger light source and taking advantage of whatever bounce is available. This reduces overblown highlights and softens shadows for more pleasing images. The reflector system ensures that light will be distributed across the whole face of the lens without any hot spots or dead spots. The Graslon IBT mirror design provides soft results. The Spark easily slides on and off your camera's hot shoe. It is compatible with most digital SLRs. It won't hinder the normal triggering of the flash and does not usually require you to alter any settings.

Spark Pop-Up Flash Diffuser is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for macro work Prior to discovering this ingenious device I used various external flashes with home-made as well as purchased diffusers for my macro work. I was greatly surprised at how much the Spark improves the quality of light from the pop-up flash. It has an ingeniously designed internal reflector that spreads out the light evenly over the diffuser. Although it hasn't totally replaced my larger external flash and diffuser rigs I find myself using the Spark quite frequently because it is so much simpler, lighter, and more portable. I've used it successfully with a Canon T3i and T4i with both the Canon 40mm pancake and the Canon 24mm pancake mounted on either a 12mm extension tube or reversed with a Vello Macrofier. The Canon 60mm Macro lens also works well with the light from the Spark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart product Fits well on my Canon EOS 7D. I phoned B&H before purchasing to be sure. As usual, superb customer service. The sales person took the time to check to insure that the Graslon diffuser would fit not only the 7D; but my wife's Rebel 3Ti. Have shot a few pics with the Graslon and it works better than expected--nice job softening the harsh built-in flash. It's not just an outer diffusing shell. Within it, in front of the built-in flash, there is a multi-faceted reflector gismo that splashes the built-in flash all over the interior of the Graslon diffuser. Clever. If you have a Speedlite, note that Graslon makes two diffusers for Speedlites. Had I known, I would have purchased one for my 430 Speedlite. Considering how well this basic unit works, that will be next. Check out the Graslon intro videos. They are brief and very informative about the products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A handy item I shoot most of my work in natural lighting but when forced indoors and around people & pets I'm forces to use the pop-up flash on my Nikon D80. The illumination is disappointing, harsh and almost not worth taking the foto. Now, with the handy flash diffuser by Graslon those problems are solved! I found the light through the diffuser very natural and pleasant looking. My only concern is that the plastic clip that attaches the diffuser to my hot shoe might break if not treated very carefully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spark on a 40D I found that I had to pop up the flash and slide the diffuser over and into the flash hot shoe. Not difficult, but the flash would not pop completely up if the diffuser is installed first. Maybe just a problem for the Canon D series. I was quite pleased with the results. I've done some test shots around the house and was surprised at how harsh shadows were greatly reduced. Almost unnoticeable. Good product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Please review before buying this product I was about to buy this product from B+H. Before doing so, I spoke to the customer service agent� who informed me that this unit reduces the light� produced by�� the pop up by� between 33% and 50%. Needless to say, the light out put normally is not great. So, to diminish it even further might not be what you are expecting or looking for..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted... I don't understand the negative reviews of this product. It does what it's description says. No, it is not as good as my Nikon SB-910 mounted on my D7100 it is not supposed to be. That is the point of a pop up light defuser. It is perfect for those times when you don't have your camera bag or don't want to carry it and need extra light. This unit is light weight, softens the harsh shadows and eliminates red eye. Instead of $3-600, for under $50 and convenience you have solved a problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use This pop-up flash diffuser is a great quick fix for indoor shots when using just the pop-up flash. It softens the light without giving any up. Easy to install, very reasonably priced.
