Serching for an Flash-extender
« on: March 31, 2016, 05:46:00 AM »
Another gear question:
I need an usable flash extender for my Canon 580, and Nissin Di866 flashes. I bought one from amazon, but it was just an piece of card with an cheap fresenel lens - and it broke after the second usage.


Thank you a lot

The better beamers really work great. They are a little bit of a hassle to put together and mount but they pack away nicely when not in use and hardly weigh anything. They fit in your camera bag like a notepad would.

Did you buy a Visual Echoes Better Beamer?  I've had two of them with no problems.  They are simple, but tough.  If that is what broke, they should send you a new one.  The replacement lenses are 8.95.
