But decided to opt for a cheaper alternative.
If you are into photography, you will know that how expensive it can soon get. The money saved easily allowed me to buy two Opteka Grids the 1/4 & 1/8, another strap CL-1 & some LEE filters, OK for a little bit more than the Rogue 3 in 1, but a lot of kit for about £40.
Although the Opteka grids are rectangular the light will still be a soft rounded effect.
The quality seems OK to me, it looks like it will last, if you are getting into portraiture, flash etc. then you can't really go wrong at £10 a pop. I was going to get a flashbender from rogue but I may try the Opteka alternative now, them seem OK. I would say that its kind of PhotoSel quality, if you are oK with that then this will be fine.
With all things photography you can spend silly amounts, more expensive is not always best & especially when dipping in your toes brand like Opteka, PhotSEL give people like me an opportunity to have a go & within a reasonable budget, leaving me to spend the real cash on the best lenses I can afford, as this is where you really want to spend your money!
There's a little bit of 'slippage' when you're putting them on and taking them off where it can take a second or two to adjust them (though you'll only get this problem when facing the flash directly forward or downward, as gravity starts to work against them) but they're great.
I was expecting a horrible rubber smell off them that you sometimes get with cheaper photography accessories, but I was happy to find out that they were practically scentless. I'd really recommend these if you need them (I wouldn't buy them unless I had an intended use though).
It works just as a grid should and as it comes with all the fastenings you'll need so you're up and shooting within seconds of opening the packaging.
I honestly don't see why I would want to spend 3 times as much on the Honl version. I'll be getting a couple more just so I've got one for each flash and at this price I'd be daft not to.
I've used it on a Nikon SB800, SB900 and Yongnuo 560 mk3 and there's abolutely no issues.
Really nice effects are achievable with portrait shots using this bit of kit and for the price it looks far more professional than a handful of straws glued into a cardboard ring. The light effect is less concentrated than using a snoot but this gives a lovely soft fall off from a brighter centre. Just perfect for softly framing a face or product.
