A dazzling boost for your Nikon’s pop-up flash
Your Nikon’s poor little popup flash has always lived in the shadow of a proper flashgun. Thanks to the Rogue Safari it now has the chance to work with up to eight times more oomph.
The theory is simple: mount a lens in front of the flash and you’ll be able to focus its light into a tighter, brighter beam and increase long-range illumination. The downside is obvious flash fall off when shooting wider than 100mm. But keep things zoomed in and the effect is quite literally brilliant, with a fourstop light increase at 100mm over our Nikon’s bare flash. That’s not quite up there with Rogue’s claims, but it’s still a hefty boost from such a simple gadget.
This is a great accessory – just be sure to close your flash before wrestling the tight-fitting Safari out of its hotshoe mount, unless you fancy a pricy repair bill.
