Handy new re­flec­tor/ dif­fuser

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

LASTOLITE has re­leased a clever light­ing de­vice called the HaloCom­pact, an eas­ily col­lapsi­ble re­flec­tor/ dif­fuser. The 85cm (33.5inch) HaloCom­pact in­cor­po­rates a light­weight alu­minium frame that quickly slots to­gether, with the re­flec­tor or dif­fuser fab­ric clip­ping onto the frame. The frame can be bro­ken down into mul­ti­ple sec­tions and along with the folded fab­ric packs into a carry case mea­sur­ing 6.5 x 27 x 6.5cm and weigh­ing only 335g. This means a re­flec­tor/dif­fuser can al­ways be in a cam­era bag. A cara­biner style clip lets the de­vice be clipped on to your belt if you’re with­out a bag on lo­ca­tion.

HaloCom­pact is avail­able as a dou­ble-sided re­flec­tor with sil­ver one side and white on the other, and as a two-stop dif­fuser. Both cost £71.95. See www. man­frotto.co.uk/lastolite.
