Description

The ProMax System is a six-piece photographic flash light modification accessory kit. The system includes an 80-20 ceiling bounce device complete with interchangeable white, gold and silver inserts, as well as a removable frosted diffusion screen.

The Big Bounce redirects and softens the light in the same manner as the Ultrasoft, with even softer results since it is roughly 20 times the size of the flash head itself.

The Ultrasoft redirects the light at a 90-degree angle from the flash, enlarging it 6-8 times over the flash head itself, then further softens the light by passing it through a frosted diffuser.

The UltraBounce distributes the light over approximately 180-degrees so that it can bounce off walls and ceilings to evenly illuminate a scene. The opaque sensor screen keeps the light from affecting the automatic sensor on most flash units.

The Soft Screen is a camera mounted flash diffuser that softens the harsh light emitted from digital SLR pop-up flashes. It installs into the hot shoe and has optional Velcro for more secure attachment.

The UltraStrap is the most secure, non-adhesive flash accessory mounting strap available. The patented marriage of neoprene and Velcro loop results in a strap that applies a constant 3 lb. tension to the flash with a non skid surface. The rugged UltraStrap attaches to most flashes in seconds to provide a secure attachment point for all LumiQuest accessories.

Application/Compatibility

Application: The ProMax System enables the photographer to deal with a variety of different lighting situations on location, maximizing the potential of your flash. Compatibility: Unless otherwise noted, all LumiQuest accessories fit most standard bounce flashes. If in doubt, email us.

Application: For use where a softer lighting effect is more important than "pocket size" portability. It is ideal for close-ups, portraits, etc. Compatibility: Unless otherwise noted, all LumiQuest accessories fit most standard bounce flashes. If in doubt, email us.

Application: To soften shadows and evenly illuminate a scene with a compact light modifier. For use on an individual flash or to softly illuminate the background in a multiple flash set up. Compatibility: Unless otherwise noted, all LumiQuest accessories fit most standard bounce flashes. If in doubt, email us.

Application: These accessories are light distribution devices. By spreading the light over 180°, it can be bounced back into the frame by nearby walls and ceilings. The device is also useful when using large softboxes and umbrellas to spread the light over a wider area. Compatibility: Unless otherwise noted, all LumiQuest accessories fit most standard bounce flashes. If in doubt, email us. Note: Accessories such as our UltraBounce are not shadow softening devices, since they are not materially larger than the flash itself.

Application To soften harsh shadows and reduce red-eye often produced by pop-up flashes.

Application: truly limitless. Think of it anytime you want to temporarily but securely attach anything photographic to just about anything else! Compatibility: Unless otherwise noted, all LumiQuest accessories fit most standard bounce flashes. If in doubt, email us.

The light output is very soft, but it reduces flash power greatly, thus eating batteries and greatly reducing throw distance. Also, it's cumbersome and I recommend using a strong rubber band in addition to the velcro.

The LumiQuest Big Bounce is a terrific flash accessory for weddings and other portrait opportunities. The Big Bounce softens the appearance of shadows, and reduces the appearance of hotspots, by dissipating the flash output over a larger area. It is especially useful when you can't bounce the flash off a ceiling indoors. You simply attach it to your flash with the supplied Velcro, (the optional LumiQuest Cinch Strap is recommended for an even better fit). Like all LumiQuest flash modifiers, this is a simple lightweight design which can fold flat in seconds.

I shot my first wedding recently and ordered the Big Bounce for the reception, which was indoors. The room had very high ceilings, warehouse style. I used my Nikon D200 with the SB600 flash. I am so thrilled with the results. Everyone looks pleasantly lit without glare - in truth it looks like I relied on natural light. Just fantastic results. I had read that it works well with high ceilings and I'm a believer!!! A+ all the way.

For those times when there's no wall to bounce your flash off, this comes through pretty well. I picked it up after I noticed that one of my favorite flickr photographers was using it to create some impressive shots, and so far I'm very happy with this.

One great way to use this is with a sync cord. You hold the camera in your right hand and the flash in your left, that way you get more control over your light placement, which solves some of the falloff problems that other reviewers were talking about as well as giving you more creative freedom for looks different than the straight-on diffused bounce that you get with on-cam flash.

I bought this with a little trepidation after reading other reviews, but my needs seemed a bit different. Frankly, I am mostly quite happy with the product. I don't typically use flash, but needed a way to fill some shadows when shooting outdoors. I prefer the use of a bounce card 4ft x 8ft, but used this in conjunction with that and sometimes in place of it.

The light I got was pleasantly soft and very natural looking. It creates a more natural eye catch-light than a bare flash as well.

I do not use flash as my primary source of light so I cannot comment on how the unit performs in that capacity. I can only say that I am VERY pleased with how this unit performs for fill-flash in otherwise good daylight.

I did not give the unit 5 stars only because it is quite heavy and there should be some provision given to allow it to be more securely fastened to the flash head. My unit never fell off the flash head, but I could see how that would happen. If your flash unit does not include a lock to keep it upright, this unit will prove a challenge with it's weight and bulk. I used it in both portrait and landscape mode, and with care it was fine. But it might frustrate those less patient.
