You might think there’s lit­tle that could im­prove the hand-held col­lapsi­ble dif­fuser. How­ever, Las­to­lite’s Tri­Grip range, renown for its odd-shaped re­flec­tors now has a choice of a one-stop or twostop dif­fuser for soft­en­ing a light source in­doors or out.

The tri­an­gu­lar shape gives it slightly more rigid­ity than the usual cir­cu­lar de­sign, yet it’ll still col­lapse to a third of its ex­panded size. The shape also means you get a large, er­gonomic hand grip that makes the Tri­Grip eas­ier and more com­fort­able to po­si­tion.

What’s more, the Vel­cro straps in­cor­po­rated into the han­dle will mount the dif­fuser to an op­tional bracket, which in turn can be mounted to a light stand or tri­pod.

How­ever you hold it, the Tri­Grip acts like a soft­box in panel form, trans­form­ing harsh light from the sun or a stu­dio flash into softer, more flat­ter­ing il­lu­mi­na­tion. The Stan­dard size we tested is the 75cm (30in) across; Large 120cm (48in) and Mini 45cm (18in) ver­sions are also avail­able.

The un­usual tri­an­gu­lar shape makes the Tri­Grip dif­fuser more sta­ble and eas­ier to ma­noeu­vre, but it folds up into a cir­cu­lar pouch
