The Softlighter II Hot Shoe Diffuser (HSD) delivers light that has been totally reflected before it is diffused resulting in a very soft even light
The HSD diffuser panel has a velcro opening in the center for ease of installation of the flash unit. Also provided are two velcro tabs to place on the flash keeping the hsd in place during use
The Softlighter HSD is avaliable in three sizes 36" 46" and 60"
You can purchase the HSD diffuser in kit form or just the diffuser if you already own a Photek Softlighter

Great product, simple to use. Softer than a softbox due to the fact that you are first bouncing the flash off the umbrella. Used with Nikon and Youngnou flashes.
I bought this as a replacement diffuser because the one that came with the softlighter kit was stolen. I actually like this one much better. They say it is made for hotshot flashes, which it works very well for. But I use Elenchrom flashes as well, and unless I spend extra for the smaller 7mm shaft umbrellas, I have to use them off-set via the tilt head bracket. Doing this with the other softlighter was impossible, but now it works out perfectly.
