Like others, I didn't want to attach sticky velcro pads to my nice, new Nikon SB600 flashgun. The cinch strap does an admirable job of attaching the diffusion hood to the flash, but it doubles the assembly time. The soft rubber triangular pattern on the underside of the strap grips the flash body very well, but doesn't lock it completely solid. It does get displaced slightly after a few mins of manhandling the camera. If you put the flash on a tripod, this is not a concern, but if you're hand-holding the camera and moving about a lot, it might be.

I have bitten the bullet, stopped using the cinch strap and just stuck the 4 pieces of velcro to the flashgun now. Much quicker to set up and holds the diffuser more rigidly.

Use the LumiQuest Cinch Strap instead of the standard method of securing flash modifiers, (which is to attach small Velcro squares to your flash permanently). To use the strap, you simply wrap it around your flash first, then attach your accessory to the Velcro side of the Cinch Strap.

The rubbing backing which touches your flash, grips enough to ensure that your flash modifier stays securely on your flash. You can remove the Cinch Strap at anytime and reuse it over and over. The Cinch Strap works with all LumiQuest flash modifiers and is highly recommended.

Works great. I see alot of people end up taping velcro to their flash because they dont like adding the task of taking this simple velcro piece off. Simple solution. Leave it on like the taped velcro you would put on. Plus with this you can take it off easily and your flash still looks awesome.

Lumiquest Promax System

The product does what it is supposed to. If you are in a situation where there are limitations in bouncing (high dark ceilings for example), then the diffuser fixture facing forward works very well. The other reflector shields are less useful to me than the plain white one with the diffuser attached, but opinions may well vary here.

It takes a while to get the attachment set up at the right angles on your flash, and the flash has to be kept upright all of the time, so your camera will be a bit taller than perhaps desired for all situations. The attachment should be set up before the photo event, since it takes time and attention not usually found in a quick candid moment. But, other than that, I found little not to like.

The unit is a tad pricy, but my results have been so satisfying that I consider it worth the money. Definitely buy the cinch strap. It works, and saves time, and does not require you to stick Velcro tags on your flash (at possibly the wrong positions!).

You will have to watch the video tutorials on the web to get a good feel for its proper use, since there is no manual at all - just a small, flimsy, badly printed piece of paper. The carton in which it comes actually has more helpful information on it than this paper. This is why I give it 4 stars.

Shortly after unboxing my new Nikon SB600, I began what had become something of a tradition for me these last 25 years: "The Fastening Of The Self-adhesive Velcro Tabs". A solemn ritual this, familiar to all photographers who use any of the myriad bounce flash, softbox, and other diffusers with their portable electronic flash units. Peeling back the release paper from the three furry strips, I precisely aligned each one to its exact intended position, and pressed them firmly home. Pausing to inspect my handiwork, there came a flash of horror at the thought of what I had just done. Not to put too sharp a point on it, but basically, I had just glued a three-piece 'fro toupee onto my brand new $300 Nikon flash. Talk about remorse! This is no $39 Quantaray; what the hell was I thinking? So maybe it wasn't the same as painting a mustache on the Mona Lisa, but still! Immediately I commenced removing said Velcro before the amazingly tenacious adhesive could cure. Still, it wasn't easy and it required a little Goof-Off solvent to restore the flash at last to its pristine, unmolested state.
So the question remained...if not the fearsome Velcro strips, just how do I intend to fasten a LumiQuest pocket bouncer to this costly, new, and above all 'bald' flash? The idea came to me that I could obtain one of those wide, heavy duty rubberband like straps, place it onto the flash head, and glue 3 more Velcro strips to it in their correct positions. Which meant finding a place that sells those rubbery strappy things, fitting the flash with one of the correct size, and finally anteing up another $5 for 3 more Velcro strips. Someone, I thought, must have had to solve this problem before, so I began Googling (I say it's a word!) around the web.

Update at the bottom (04-dec-2009)

I bough the Cinch Strap over a year ago and so far has worked not only for the Lumiquest products but for almost everything i wanted to attach to my flash. Considering that i bough this for the Pocket Bouncer, i can't imagine how it would be without this strap keeping it in place since i an event photographer and when you work in a fast paced environment you need to keep everything tight to its position.

I must say the rubber isn't the best to keep it from moving, it does the job pretty well. I wish the strap was a bit more elastic so i would get a better grip. Thats why i only give it 4 stars.

I received mine the first week of May 2008 and up to this day i use it in a everyday basis with absolute no regret other than i did not bough more than just one.

Update 04-dec-2009:
Now after 19 months of use mine still in great shape and almost keeping it's original shape, i never leave it at home when i have a job.
