Better Beamer for Canon430 EX

By

from New Zealand  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this flash extender/better beamer for birding and it works perfectly as fill flash. It's a bit pricey and not the easiest thing to set. And it doesn't feel robust either but the velcro is enough to keep the lens attached. I would really appreciate if it comes with a pouch/bag and not just cheapy plastic bag.

I have found this flash extender to be very useful in a variety of shots wildlife in paticular. It is easy to pack and set up, the biggest benefit for my use is the lighting of deep shadow's in secluded bird's and animals in dense limb's or brush. I recommend this item for it has many use's in the field.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Does this Better Beamer fit the Pentax 540 FGZ? If not does anyone know if any of the Extenders will work on that flash unit? Their web site is of no help and they don't show any "Contact" information. Tom Thanks for the help.
LOUIS M  I would be surprised if it did. The side pieces are designed to fit the contours of specific flash head external flsh heads. This is necessary so that the extended Fresnel lens is held at a specific distance and alignment to the face of the flash head. The extended beam width is much narrower than the bare flash head generates. That is how it increases the luminous flux density at extended range targets. The narrower the beam, the more precisely it has to be aimed. That is why there are a number of different model numbers of the extender. The question should be forwarded to the manufacturer, but if no model is listed for the Pentax flash, I would not advise anyone to jury rig the side frames to the flash head.
