Warranty: Unconditionally Guaranteed Since 1987
Description: The Quik Bounce is designed for use with or without a ceiling to soften the light and transition from horizontal to vertical format without having to adjust or remove the Quik Bounce from the flash. The unique design has doors that can be opened to allow 80% ceiling bounce while redirecting 20% of the light forward to “fill” the shadows cast by the ceiling bounce. When there is not a low, neutral ceiling available to bounce the light, the doors remain closed and 100% of the light is redirected forward.
Application: To soften shadows and reduce unpleasant red eye. Unique design allows for shooting with or without a ceiling in both horizontal and vertical formats. Ideal for wedding and event photographers.
Compatibility: Unless otherwise noted, all LumiQuest accessories fit most standard bounce flashes. If in doubt, email us.
Attachment: Self-adhesive Velcro® is included with all LumiQuest products however, if you'd prefer not to use that you may purchase the optional UltraStrap.
Light Loss: (Doors closed) Approximately 1 1/3 stops. (Doors opened) Variable depending on ceiling height.
Dimensions: Folds flat to 5 3⁄4" x 7 1⁄2"

This is the best solution out there...
Bouncing against walls and ceilings is all fine but sometimes you need a bit of light thrown forward - and the Quik Bounce is perfect for this.
But one of the nest features is that it keeps the speedlight slightly higher than lens height when shooting in portrait orientation and higher than usual in landscape.
Yes there are other modifiers that will do this too (albeit very expensively), but the Quik Bounce doesn't just throw light around everywhere - and importantly you're not just about to blind the guest who's right behind you.
And then, if you need a little help with keeping a natural look, there's the twin doors at the top, always ready to add two levels of bounce light off the ceiling if you need it.
Virtually no weight, and packs flat into a camera bag.
Been using them for 5 years. Nothing else quite like them.
