- Simple to use
Using a bare flash on a subject can often make things look a bit garish, with heavy shadows and overpowering highlights. A bounce card allows users to angle the light and, by making it diffuse, make the image more appealing.
Unfortunately, many of these light modifiers are big and not very portable. Fortunately, the EzyBounce flashgun bounce card is none of these things. It’s small and compact, and when not in use it packs down to the size of a gent’s wallet. It would go pretty much unnoticed in a kitbag, and it comes with its own carry pouch.
As the ‘Ezy’ part of the product’s name suggests, it’s also simple to use. Attaching it is easy. It has a silicone strap with numerous notches on it that enables it to fit different sized flashguns. We found it accommodated all standard-size guns just fine. The white part of the bounce card folds in and out, allowing the user to direct the flashlight as they choose.
For anyone using flash a lot, especially for portraits or events, the Lastolite EzyBounce flashgun bounce card is a worthwhile purchase.
