Sofirn BLF LT1 Lantern, Flash Shade

Flexible Photo flash shade has two sides, foil and white.

Reflects a very soft light.

Easy to attach with elastic strap.

The large square shade seems to be too large.

It seems like you are omitting useful things like links or pictures or cave drawings or something… Big Smile

Wow, i really like that design for a shade! it dies the job of directing light in 180 one direction, and make it foldable for storage. That could be definitely a great addition to the LT1 accessories kit. Big Smile

Hmm, someone else can see the pics so problem must be on my end, or imgur or something, now trying again I can load them in Chrome but not Firefox.

Good idea! That shade looks very useful for getting the light out of the way in a tent while camping, while reducing losses. I don’t do photography at a level where i’d use a shade for that so can’t really comment on its original purpose.

I made some of those for my Canon flash units several years ago. There was a pattern someone posted on the internet. About 5 dollars worth of foam and velcro from walmart. The foam is white on one side, and black on the other. They work fantastic for flash diffusers
