Häh­nel Uni­ver­sal Flash Ac­ces­sory Kit £50, $80

NPhoto - - Gear Zone -

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
