Hähnel Universal Flash Accessory Kit £50, $80
Despite being one of the cheaper options on test, you certainly get a lot to play with in this kit. There’s a compact softbox to take the edge off shadows, plus a honeycomb grid and a roll-up snoot to concentrate light into a tighter beam. Several gels are included to add a splash of colour, plus you get a small panel to use as a reflector or bounce card. Each accessory fixes to your flashgun using a simple but fairly effective Velcro strap system, and Hähnel rounds the kit off with a useful adjustable bracket to attach your flashgun to a tripod or light stand.
While this kit can help indulge your creative side, its lasting appeal is somewhat limited. We found the softbox isn’t particularly effective, you only get seven gel colours and the honeycomb grid attachment is very basic.
You get a lot for your money here, but we’re not convinced it’s the best choice for enthusiasts
