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.
