About LumiQuest

The marriage of non-skid beaded neoprene and Velcro® Loop results in a strap that applies approximately 3 pounds of tension to the flash.

Coupled with the unique patent pending design that has uniform loops in the Velcro® Loop material, the UltraStrap will not slip when attached to the flash.

The rugged UltraStrap attaches to most flashes in seconds to provide a secure attachment point for all LumiQuest accessories.

A Simple Strap

It can wrap around things to provide velcro for sticking things to other things (not just flashes!). The constricting elastic works well. However, I was a little disappointed at the length. Gentlemen of Lumiquest would it be too much to ask for just one more inch? The girth is more than adequate.

Meh... it's a velcro strap

Not overly impressed with this strap due to the loose fit I had attaching the accessories it's meant for. Tried it with the Lumiquest gel holder and had too much light leak around the sides. Perhaps that's due to the velcro loops on the strap allowing too much movement of the holder. It is easy to put on & take off though and takes no storage room. Overall, it's functional but I'll stick to permenant velcro on my flashhead.

You need this is you have a LumiQuest

By

from Sarasota, Fl.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I used the velcro that came with my LumiQuest but it never keep the bloody thing steady and I had attached a thick rubber band to keep it secure. Now this works perfect and keeps the flash modifier steady, and I am not walking around with a stupid rubber band on my flash.

Works Great

By

from South Carolina  -  Photo Enthusiast

After replacing my flashes with new ones I did not want to mess with gluing on straps. I tried several different systems, such as rubber bands and other items found in a hardware store. Nothing held my bouncer firmly. So I found this item and skeptically ordered one. Guess what, it does exactly as claimed. No more Pocket Bouncer flopping around and sometimes even falling off. Makes working with the bouncer much easier and it's sure more professional looking. This was an amazing and innovative idea that really works. I stood and shook the hell out of my flash with the bouncer attached and it held firmly. Why not 5 stars? Like many, the price brought it down a notch and it's such a great product that I feel Lumiquest would be better served including it with their Pocket Bouncer. Lastly, over-priced or not, I'm eventually going to by one for my other flash so I don't have to change it out.

The Best

By

from Manitou Springs, Colorado  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I've tried LumiQuest's earlier straps which were fair, and Honl's straps which were good, but the Ultra Strap is the only strap that really stays on. It was a smart idea to offset the rubber with the Velcro in such a way that there's constant pressure to hold the strap tight. It works.

Good value for the price

By

from Denton, TX  -  Casual Photographer

The strap was easy to use with the gel holder. Sometimes it slips around on the flash if it is not attached tightly.

pricey accessory but works well...

By

from Richmond, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Use this and you don't have to apply velcro tape on your flash head; keeps things neat. It's pricey for what it is but you pay for the good idea. I use it to fasten Lumiquest portable lightbox light modifier on Nikon SB-900 and SB-800.

It's a strap! with velcro!

By

from Rochester, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

It's a strap designed for a shoe mount flash that allows attching a diffuser or mini-softbox. But wait there's more! The strap also fits around tripods, lightstands and other pole shaped objects. The girth is fine, but it would be better if this were maybe an inch or so longer.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
CRAIG V  Wanted a more secure strap for flash modifiers compared to honl and other options. Works well but I've since found that cutting the end off a diffuser cap works better and much quicker.
