The Phot-R® Universal Studio Softbox Flash Diffuser is an ideal way to soften the output of your flash. The rectangular shape yields a wide beam spread which is great for portraiture. This flash diffuser sets up in seconds and is compatible with any flash light, whether you're using it on or off camera. First and foremost, it eliminates the harsh shadows produced with direct flash, especially when the flash is the main source of light. Since the light is diffused, red-eye is minimized and contrast softened. The diffuser comes with a cinch strap (Velcro fastener) and an anti-slip rubber band for quick and easy installation. It also folds flat so you can store it easily in your camera bag.
