Product Description

The Cateye LETS (Laser-Etched Translucent Slits) represents the state of the art in pop-up flash reflectors. These slits let a fraction of your flash's light pass directly though the reflector in a diffused manner, which fills in shadows and throws a bit of spark in your subject's eyes. A perfect photography gift for new and experienced photographers alike!

The Cateye flash reflector is the answer for those who want to take professional quality indoor photographs without the bulkiness and cost of an external flash unit. A pop-up flash alone casts harsh, direct light on your subject, whiting out faces and creating shadow halos. The Cateye works by bouncing light from your DSLR's pop-up flash off the ceiling, where it then scatters back to your subject from all directions, resulting in soft, pleasant lighting. The Cateye's slim design lets you put it in the smallest of camera bags, or even your coat pocket. Its laser-cut mirrored plexiglas construction makes it flexible and ultra-durable while weighing in at only 22g. The Cateye flash reflector comes packaged with a protective pouch.

Compatibility:
Canon 7D, 100D Rebel SL1, 350D Rebel XT, 400D Rebel XTi, 450D Rebel XSi, 500D Rebel T1i, 550D Rebel T2i, 600D Rebel T3i, 650D Rebel T4i, 700D Rebel T5i, 1000D Rebel XS, 1100D Rebel T3, 40D, 50D, 60D, 70D.
Note that the 20D, 30D, and 300D are not normally supported by this model, but if you contact me (Eckstein Engineering), I can supply a special version that will do the trick.

The Cateye Reflector is a must if you want to use the pop up flash on your DSLR. This little device simply lets you take photos with the pop up flash eliminating harsh shadows & washed out faces or red eye. I would urge anyone to buy one of these, it slips into your camera bag & takes up no room at all. Well worth the small outlay I use it all the time now.

The Cateye LETS flash reflector is a great product which I have recently evaluated with my Canon 7D DSLR camera (which has a pop-up flash). When used for indoor portrait shots the laser etched slits on the device help to give catchlights in the subject's eyes - something which is often absent on bounce flash portraits. The device weighs almost nothing and so small it is very easy to carry in my pocket or camera bag!

I have a new EOS 60D, and the pop-up flash is appallingly harsh. Faces appear flat and the background is in deep shadow. Its only use is in picking out highlights in otherwise good light. I have a Canon-specific Vivitar bounce flash, but, to be honest, it seldom ends up in my camera bag (visiting friends, etc). So I bought the Cateye in the hope that it would travel in my small tote bag on all occasions. It is brilliant: warm, natural lighting; subtle shadows; and correctly exposed in auto (flash comp recommended in manual). It is going to be a permanent resident of my tote bag. Downsides? Works best in landscape position; needs flash comp in manual mode; made of a sort of mirror laminated plastic which I don't expect to last many years. Upsides? £16; weighs about as much as a £2 coin; and it takes up no space in your bag. I would honestly recommend this to any photographer on-the-go.

Although it looks a bit strange, using this flash reflector transforms your pictures into AMAZING very professional looking photos. Takes a perfect picure each and every time. The detail now jumps out of the screen instead of washed out "over exposed" pics. Worth every penny and then some!

I use this at work to take photos for ID cards using a canon 7D, I often have to visit and shoot in situ and this is great. It gives good even lighting, softens any shadow and lets enough light through the slits to get catchlights in the eyes of the subject, the results are excellent with none of the harshness normally associated with on board flash. The diffuser is very light and I don't notice it when I'm looking through the viewfinder. It also comes in a protective bag, this is a permanent addition to my gear bag. Do your piccys a favour and get one.

Feels slightly flimsy on the camera but after owning this and using it constantly for over a year I can say it's actually pretty tough!

Main thing is that it lets me take much better flash photos at a fraction of the cost of a dedicated flash unit.

I'd buy it again if it ever breaks

Ingenious design, well made, works as described.
An economical way of preventing flash bleach out. Highly recommended. Very happy with my pictures since it was installed.

Such a simple device, yet the best ideas generally are.
Slim and compact, it fits into a camera bag without needing any extra space.
The affect when used is amazing. Creating the illusion of professional lighting on indoor shots.
