That being said, I needed a 1/4'' honeycomb grid, and I saw this Opteka for 1/3 of the price of the Honl product. I wasn't really hesitant, and I'm always game to try new products (at least try...)
Anyway, I received it and to my surprise it had an included speed strap with it! I had purchased an additional Honl strap for my 2nd flash, but now that I have 3 flashes, I'm just going to hold onto the extra strap. [...]
Anyway, kudos for a $13 product that includes the normally $10 strap.
The 1/4'' honey grid works as expected. I purchased the 1/4'' because my Honl 1/8'' was too tight in some situations (usually couples standing with one another, I needed a larger light circle). [...]
Some people complain about how loose these feel? Honestly, the Opteka (for some reason) stays on tighter than my Honl system.
The one issue I have is how the honeycomb grid is held together by the outer case - there was a gap on the side between the two cases holding together the grid. Some adhesive velcro was holding the two sides together. That's fine, but it didn't seem tight enough. Nothing a few strips of gaffers tape didn't solve!
LONG AND SHORT: if you need a 1/4'' honeycomb grid and a speed strap, you can't beat this price: I'm actually very happy with this product. I'll be looking into some other Opteka equipment in the future.
Price is very competitive, and it is well made.
Compared to the Honl you can buy almost 3 of these grids for the price of one Honl.
On the downside this is a one size fits all so the head is bigger than most flash heads (even on my sb900), so getting this to sit right takes a little extra adjusment.
I like to use an elastic band (which I place around the flash head and straps in addition to the velcro straps. The velcro band which goes around the flash head isn't as secure as the ones made by Lumiquest. For the price this is a great product, that does the job well. Even if you opeted to buy the Lumiquest straps (which affix to your flash head more securely) this product still comes out ahead.
To mount the grid to the speedlight, there's two Velcro straps. So, yes, you get a LOT of Velcro with this thing. Fits any size speedlight - works fine on my smaller 430EXII and large 580EXII.
Great, clean light constrictor for great price. Makes a balanced, circular 'spotlight' effect.
Comes with handy cinch strap, but the fit is not too secure.
But who cares, it works!
The velcro strap that goes around the flash head is very secure when you pull it tight and hold before fastening. This first step makes for a fairly secure attachment for the grid even with the flash angled down 45 degrees. There is a bit of loosening that occurs between the strap and the grid over the first few minutes of use, but not enough for the grid to fall off.
I really like the results I've gotten so far. I plan on buying another so I have a pair to use for rim lighting.

A simple, inexpensive modification to your flash unit to give your photos a bit of a studio edge. Works like it should, although the actual honeycomb is rather delicate. Read morePublished 28 days ago by Craven Angel
