Product Description

Keep light from flaring into your lens when using your speedlight as a background or hair light. The Speed Gobo attaches quickly with the Speed Strap (required, not included). Reversable, tough ballistic-type black nylon on one side, white polymer on the other so you can also use as a bounce card. Buy 2 for a great barndoor setup. 4" x 7.5" .

Very reasonably priced, and portability.
Jenn Lee
The reversible black/white is a nice touch, and makes the gobo useful for lighting a background while flagging your subject.

It's a wonderful piece of the Honl Photo line, and I'm glad I own one.

I have been using Dave Honl's gobos since shortly after they became available. Same for his speed straps and snoots.

They are all top notch. Dave is a pro shooter, and these things are made to take the abuse that pro shooters dish out. The reversible black/white is a nice touch, and makes the gobo useful for lighting a background while flagging your subject.

They mount very securely with the speed straps, too.

I will upload a shot of a bicyclist made using two backlights flagged with these gobos shortly.

If you are somewhat new to photography and this is your first GOBO, note that you only get one flag, not two like in the picture! I just got mine today and was shocked to see the picture on the bag with one GOBO (that's the picture that should be on Amazon I guess).

These cards are very handy to have. You can hide the flash-glare from your camera lens on your flash, resulting in a "cleaner" image.

If you can afford more than one, I'd recommend getting at least 4 so you can create a snoot out of them.

The reason for only 4 stars is that I had to take one star away, because these cards are sold as individuals only. Would LOVE to see multi-packs of two or four or eight as well, perhaps with a savings option when purchasing in quantity.

Otherwise, these cards do their job well.

Once I get a chance, I will post a picture of how to create the snoot with 4 cards. :)

It's advertised as "Flag + bounce card" but it is not a good bounce card for a couple of reasons. First, when you attach it to your flash it tends to lean backward a little bit, therefore in order to get some light on the subject either you need to change the position of the flash to 75 (which is something I'm trying to avoid *by* using a bounce card in the first place) or you need to try to bend the card (which is impossible without damaging it).

I surprisingly realized that built-in bouncer of my Nikon SB-900 AF Speedlight Flash creates a softer light on the subjects I photographed while I was testing HonlPhoto Flag/Bounce Card. I don't really know what causes this unexpected result since the surface of this card is way bigger than built-in bouncer. Maybe coating on the surface was not the best choice, I really don't know.

Don't buy it if you need a soft light. You may go and buy a LumiQuest ProMax SoftBox for that purpose, it serves great.

It is definitely a good flag .. but what can possibly go wrong with a flag anyway.

I don't know why I didn't read the other reviews more carefully before ordering, but I was yet another person disappointed that only one flag came per order. AMAZON & 17th St Photo: Please update the photo to help us rapid on-line shoppers. Otherwise, the single GOBO works well.

These little guys are durable, the black/white surfaces offer versatility, and like everything Honl makes they are seemingly bulletproof. While $12 seems like a lot of money to a photographer on a budget (and in possession of lots of Corn Flakes boxes and a few rolls of duct/gaffers tape), these will be in your camera bag years after all those homemade jobs are rotting in landfills.

Highly recommended.

Does the job pretty well. Not a flash bender or anything but help you focus your light. Gives you more control to doubt.
