Comments about LumiQuest LumiQuest Quik Bounce:

The most versatile bounce ever; since you can open the barndoors on top and bounce off the ceilings and have 20% of the flash going forward as a fill light. If no ceiling is available or if the ceiling is just to high; you can close the barndoors on top of bounce and still have softer light rather than direct flash which separates the pro shoots from the deer in the headlight shots and is much more flattering to the subject being photographed.

Comments about LumiQuest LumiQuest Quik Bounce:

I have owned and used the Lumiquest 80/20 for years and always struggled with taking vertical images while using the 80/20. This new version really is versatile, vertical or horizontal. Attaches easily, and folds flat. Velcor on 'window' works well, and easy manipulate open or closed with one hand. Great product for external flash!

Weddings
Portraits

It fills background and foreground in the entire scene where as direct flash gives a "cave effect".

The doors are a bit flimsy but nothing a lil duct tape can fix

Comments about LumiQuest LumiQuest Quik Bounce:

I needed something effective that was light and versatile for taking indoor event photography, and this fits the bill.

Quik Bounce attaches quickly to my Nikon SB800. Included are Velcro tabs you can tape to flash, but I use velcro strap sold separately, since it seems more secure. It was ready for horizontal and vertical shots, and bouncing off low ceiling (when available) or not.

Getting flash a bit off hotshoe could help avoid lens shadow when zooming, but I didn't have my bracket with me, and it was a rare problem to work around. (Used it once so far in event-type conditions.)

Nice "all-in-one" solution when using flash gun for events, especially if you're shooting solo.
