Thanks to precision engineering in the pursuit of excellence, this 24-Facet, True Parabolic design, this reflector will help skyrocket your lighting possibilities to new heights. This unique lighting modifier enables you to produce multiple looks from a single modifier, thanks to its easy-breezy focusing pole system, which enables you to produce both Hard and Soft Lighting with a single modifier, depending on where your light is positioned within the Reflector.

True Parabola: True Parabola enabling this unique modifier to precisely focus the light from your strobe, enabling you to achieve many different looks with a single modifier. Its special focusing pole ensures that your light is mounted perfectly centres within the parabola of the reflector, ensuring the light is.
How It Works: The light from your strobe first travels to the back of the reflector, where the light is reflected outwards to it your subject. The position of your light in the modifier will determine how the light is reflected, thus enabling you to produce different light qualities from a single modifier.
- Inner Position: When the light is in its most inward position, the light rays are bounced around the reflector, to form a narrow, focused beam, with a high amount of contrast.
- Most Focused Position: At its most focused, the light reflected out of the Parabolic Reflector collimates, to produce parallel light beams. This gives you the most output efficiency, whilst maintaining creamy smooth light fall off.
- Outer Position: When the light source is positioned further out of the modifier, the reflected light rays become more diffused, and spread over a wider area. This produces soft, glowing lighting with less contrast.
24-Facet Design: 24-facet design making this modifier extremely close to a perfectly circular light source.
Low Profile Adapter Ring: Extremely low profile, designed to block as little light as possible, helping it to achieve maximum light efficiency.
Easy to Set-Up: Unique easy-open mechanism. Simply insert the two opening leavers into the mechanism, and squeeze them together, for a smooth opening experience.
