The Sunbounce SunSwatter Pro textile is made from the finest reflective and translucent materials available. It's a robust, standard diffusion material for soft light. The Translucent 2/3 textile softens and reduces the light by about 2/3 of an f/stop. It will cut the highlight / shadow contrast considerably. In any size, the effect is a good basic photographic light for either film or digital. This truly is the all purpose and daily use workhorse.
