About Professor Kobre

Professor Kobré's Lightscoop, a bounce device for the pop-up flash on most 35mm DSLRs with interchangable lenses, slips over your camera's pop-up flash and allows you to bounce the flash like professionals bounce an expensive external flash. The Lightscoop is the inexpensive answer to natural-looking bounce flash and digital photography lighting. (Even professionals like it for casual shooting!) No more harsh shadows, bleached faces, red-eye, or cave effect from direct pop-up flash!

Reviewers tell the story:

"Bounce pop-up flash by snapping a Lightscoop over it, a little piece of plastic genius," Popular Photography, March 2008

"...just as if you had used one of those reflector umbrellas that the pros use," David Pogue, New York Times, "Circuits."

-- "It slips into your camera's hot shoe, fits right over the pop up flash, and redirects the camera's flash to a ceiling or wall. That's bounce, baby, bounce... as essential as a lens cap," DingbatMag, the monthly review of Cool Tools

"Your pop-up flash doesn't have to suck... I was stunned by the difference," Terry White's Tech Blog

The Standard version has a normal mirror and is used in most situations.

Such an awesome product


from Santa Monica  -  Casual Photographer

I bought this to take still photos of products that I would like to sell on [...]and [...]. But have found that it is great for portraits too. Only thing I didn't like was the fact that you had to go thru a couple set up process in order to use it effectively. And instructions kind of leave it unclear as to if you can deviate from those settings. But thank goodness, they have a Flickr group and you can get your questions answered there. And there are plenty of samples of what you can do with the LightScoop.

DICK P  For the obvious advantage of off the ceiling bounce flash. However, I didn't notice it was for Sony only and can't use it with my canons.
Shopper  Will this work on Canon Powershot sx 10?
DICK P  yes but make sure you specify it's for that camera
