I'm relying more and more on my portable strobes than my AC packs and lights these days. I'm also adding my portables in with my Studio lighting on location. Either way, it's good to have good light shapers. The only reason I don't give full five stars is two fold. the larger grid falls out of its holder, so I will have to lay a bead of hot glue around it to keep it in place and protected. It if were to fall out in my grip case, it might get mauled in there. The other thing is the mounting bracket. I place this on an old SB-26 flash and it fits well. It's a bit harder to fit on larger flash heads like newer models. It can be done, I'm just saying its not as easy. All in all, a handy piece of gear. When you cinch down the strap, it's pretty steady on there. I recommend using lumiquest or other bands on your head so accessories like these have something to hang on to besides smooth hard plastic.

Had this for 3 months. (When I actually go back and give honest reviews after using the gear). Screws came off the "speedring" so the snoot almost fell off. I secured it with a wire, but in less than 3 months and its falling apart? Not the best build quality. Its good material, light and does not scuff easily, but workmanship was wanting at best.
I still bought a second one despite the fact that the first one failed, but I bought it knowing its flimsy and could break.

Does the job. You have to secure it properly on the flash head or it will spill light out.

Grids do not fit Snoot

By Robert

Comments about Impact Strobros Snoot for On-Camera Flash (Version II):

I order this and found that both the grids do not fit at all on the snoot. I hope to see if B&H or impact can replace the grids ... The unit works great. I just have to apply tape to hold the grids on without falling off.

Comments about Impact Strobros Snoot for On-Camera Flash (Version II):

Use for hair, back, and spot in the field. A bit clumsy to get set up but works perfectly after setup. Works particularly well for background strip lighting behind floral. Good bang for the buck.

Comments about Impact Strobros Snoot for On-Camera Flash (Version II):

Overall, this fits my yongnuo iv speed lite well but the grids could fit onto the shoot better. The shoot does seem to be good quality though and is perfect for what I needed.

    Easy to assemble. One of the grids (20 degree) does not fit and stay on the snoot (very loose). The other grid (10 degree) stays on with a tight fit.

        Comments about Impact Strobros Snoot for On-Camera Flash (Version II):

        I am happy to see studio products being made for the speedlights. This is a good product and I am getting used to using it, but it is not perfect but very good. I would still like to be able to narrow the beam more. The grids help very much though, even at that it is well worth the purchase.

        I like using snoota for effect lights. Impact does a great job making one for flash heads with this product. It's easy to use, fits different size heads with the included spacer blocks. Overall effective and a great value.

                I'm relying more and more on my portable strobes than my AC packs and lights these days. I'm also adding my portables in with my Studio lighting on location. Either way, it's good to have good light shapers. The only reason I don't give full five stars is two fold. the larger grid falls out of its holder, so I will have to lay a bead of hot glue around it to keep it in place and protected.
