I do a lot of photography that isn't the glamours or artsy side but the meaty photography at events. Things can rapidly change during an event and there really isn't enough time to fine tune each exposure or set up. While coming the end of a graduation season for colleges and high schools, I've come to love the Stopper Flash Disc and so has several of my fellow photographers.
While bounced light is nice, I'm usually working where that isn't possible. Gymnasiums, stages, or outdoors is typical so I need point the flash at my subject. I've used a variety of modifiers and some with varying success. None however has come close to ease and constant success of the Flash Disc. In all types of challenging situations, it knocks it out of the park.
I've included two photos from a recent outdoor evening graduation which used the Flash Disc and a Canon 5D III and 600ex on TTL to show its talent. I highly recommend it.
The disc is about 12" in diameter, and a couple inches thick. The bottom has an opening with a wide elastic strap for attaching to a flash. The flash disc easily and securely fit on a Canon 580EX Speedlite, so it will easily attach to any modern strobe from Nikon, Canon, Sigma, Yongnuo, Lumopro etc. For those of you who still have the old Vivitar 285's hanging around, mine took a bit of work to wrangle into the flash disc, but it did fit without worrying that the elastic would be stretched out too far and eventually fail.
The back of the disk has an 18% gray card, along with white and black strips for setting your white balance in post. On the inside of the back is silver reflective material, which is also covering the sides all the way around, so the only place light can spill out is the front, and possibly a little at the bottom where the flash goes in, but that doesn't bother me much. The front is the usual soft box white material, but it has a square patch sewn into it where the top of the flash sits, to prevent light spill directly from the flash through the front. This patch is also silver reflective material on the inside, so instead of allowing direct spill it will bounce the light back to the rear reflector. This should provide light similar to a beauty dish, and should give circular catch lights with a dark line coming from the bottom to the middle.
The whole thing packs down small enough to fit easily into any bag, or in the pocket of my raincoat at football games so I can use it for sideline portraits. Build quality seems good, so I'm sure it will last a long time, and I will definitely be buying a couple more soon!
So first off, the review has 5 stars which I gave because the FlashDisc does very well for its intended purpose. The unit is about 12-14 inches in diameter when expanded and maybe 2.5" thick. When received, it is flat but inside of the FlashDisc it includes a small storage bag. The FlashDisc can be twisted like all of the other photography panels that collapse and it goes down to about a 5" circle. Fit's easily into the bag too so there's no fuss there. Inside of the FlashDisc there is an elastic band and this is where you slip in your speedlight. My SB-900 fit easily and I didn't have to wrangle with the elastic that much to get it started.
Using the FlashDisc was actually enjoyable. The results when the FlashDisc was on the speedlight mounted to the camera weren't that flattering. The flash made the photos slightly washed out and you could definitely tell the flash was coming right at the subject instead of from above like when you're bouncing the light. Think of photos from Terry Richardson. I didn't like them at all. I took some photos and posted them to my website for examples using a Nikon D4S, SB-900 on camera as the Master, and an SB-900 with FlashDisc as the remote flash. I had the speedlight mounted on a lightstand firing down from the left.Read more ›

The flash diffuser function works ok but this is $40 WAY overpriced! I bought another one for $12ish and literally looks and functions the same.Published 4 days ago by Amazon Customer

Compact, so you never have to leave home without it! Read more
So far I'm loving this portable soft box! Just have to make sure your subject keeps their eyes on the camera and not the flash disc. Can't wait to use it again.Published 1 month ago by Jason Summa
