  • 1Description

The Light Blaster Strobe Based Projector from Spiffy Gear allows you to use your shoe mount flash and a Canon EF or EF-S lens to transform an ordinary wall into a creative background of patterns, landscapes, people and places. Use your vacation slides to place your subject in a crowd or on a bridge or in a village square.

If slides are unavailable or you just want some fresh material, Spiffy Gear has four creative multiple slide kits for you with everything from haunted houses to vivid patterns to earth in space. There's even a set that will allow you to put your choice of angel or fairy wings on your subject. For Nikon users there's an adapter that lets you share in the fun. The light Blaster comes with a slide cartridge, slide, and a Spiffy case.

    Spiffy Gear LB-BLS reviews

    Light Blaster Strobe Based Projector is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Such an awesome idea! I used the light blaster most recently to create a backdrop for a Halloween photo booth and it worked incredibly well. It does exactly what they say it will do, and while it does take a tiny bit of work to set up once its focused you can pretty much forget about it unless you need to move it. My only small complaint is that even with a 2.8 lens wide open and a Nikon speed light on full power it doesn't put out a lot of light. High iso is almost mandatory. I can't wait to use this again and again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fun and unique tool to have! A great product that allows you to expand your creative options to transform your strobe into a versatile and amazing projector! I received a unit to review and managed to come up with some amazing smoke patterns that I hadn't thought about at the time!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique Tool Overall, this thing is a little wonky, BUT there's just nothing else like this. It's a brilliant invention and I'm glad I bought one. I used this with a Canon 580EX II Speedlite. Tricks to using this (alongside studio strobes, anyway): - works best with fast lenses with large rear elements (like F1.4 or faster). - for full rear-projection-like backgrounds, your surface needs to be white AND you're going to need a wide lens. I had a 16'h x 21'w cyc wall and a 14mm F2.8 Rokinon could be set out less than 10 feet and would give me full wall coverage. Unfortunately, my wall was currently painted a medium gray, so the F2.8 was rather faint. - find initial focus by shining a flashlight through the light blaster, then attach the flash unit. Don't use an LED flashlight with multiple LEDs. - slightly defocused patterns on subjects is more pleasing and looks less photoshoppy than perfectly-focused (IMHO) - Gaffers tape is useful for ensuring a secure hold when tilting up - the stock Light Blaster slide strips are a little too wide (on the short side; vertically) and need to be trimmed to fit in the holder correctly. - use a small piece of clear tape to keep the (now trimmed) LB slide strips from sliding out when switching out holders.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Idea - could have been better designed This a truly great idea and i will use it a lot. Three gripes - the first is how the flash is secured - a small hinged or clip in place section over the Velcro would make it easier to secure properly. A means of rotating it 90 degrees to the vertical would be nice is the second issue. What was disappointing that the slides came in a cheap cardboard box -even the very expensive grobos. This box will not last - as the slides are an usual shape - getting a small holder would have been nice. I am modifying a business card holder to suit. The carry case is great but no case for the slides! That said i will use it a lot but a bit more thought in the design would be good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised and 100 times cheape It uses your lens to focus the slide onto a wall or background. The lens I used was an old Manuel Nikon 28mm. Plus I can use my own slides or make ones on my computer. I can't wait to get a willing model to be photographed with this light blaster projecting images on her and behind her. The imagination runs wild with ideas

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as I expected! This is performing just as expected and that is a GOOD thing. I plan on being VERY creative with this little piece of equipment. I may even buy another so I can add one slide to the back ground while using another on the subject. You do need to pay attention to how the flash gets centered in the shoe. You can turn it the wrong way and get a light fall off with the bulb being out of position to the slide and lens focus point.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Might be cool - takes some practice This looks fun, takes some work sorting out the focus and positioning.
