BounceLite £100, $157

NPhoto - - Gear Zone -

It’s no se­cret that one of the eas­i­est ways to get softer il­lu­mi­na­tion from your flash­gun is sim­ply to bounce the light off a white ceil­ing or wall. But you don’t al­ways have a white wall to hand, so the BounceLite aims to recre­ate the same soft­en­ing ef­fect, no mat­ter where you’re shoot­ing.

You pop the box onto your flash­gun, and its white in­te­rior walls and roof bounce the light through the dif­fu­sion panel on the front. The roof can hinge open, en­abling you to re­flect just the right amount of light onto your sub­ject, and there’s even a slot where you can in­sert a dif­fu­sion panel or coloured gels.

The re­sult is im­proved soft­ness of light that’s easy to con­trol yet shows min­i­mal light loss (though a ring-light mod­i­fier will pro­duce an even softer ef­fect).

Flip the BounceLite’s roof all the way up and you can use it like a stan­dard pop-up bounce card
