Flaghead Photographic, the UK importers have today announced some new additions to the David Honl range of lighting accessories for portable (strobe) flash. Here are the details of this expanding system. Of course on many workshops we use some of them to show what can be achieved in real use:
Flaghead Photographic, the exclusive UK & Ireland distributor of HONL PHOTO products have launched the new Honl Photo Traveller 16 Softbox:
HONL PHOTO Traveller 16
A portable softbox for off-camera use, with the quality and sturdiness that has become synonymous with David Honl’s range of light-shapers! Easy to set up and attach to your shoe-mount flash using the Honl Photo Speed Strap, which is included. It has a large 16” front diameter diffuser and a removable inner light baffle. The Traveller 16 folds flat for easy transport, weighs less than a pound and provides a pleasing, circular catch-light in your subject’s eye.
