I learned a good bit about Westcott at NAB this past year and so I wanted to share this update from them in case you're a photog who may be interested in a new lighting option
WESTCOTT PARTNERS WITH KEVIN KUBOTA TO MANUFACTURE AND DISTRIBUTE THE LUNAGRIP
Via Press Release:
Westcott, an industry-leading innovator of photo and video lighting products, recently teamed with photographer and educator Kevin Kubota to pioneer a unique tool for portrait photography. The LunaGrip, designed by Kubota, is a one-of-a-kind speedlight handle that allows for instant and portable diffusion.
The LunaGrip pairs virtually any speedlight with standard reflectors or diffusion discs. Featuring an adjustable shoe-mount bracket, easy-to-grip handle, and three collapsible grip arms, the LunaGrip can mount any diffusion disc sized from 20″ to 42″. This speedlight modifier creates a stunning, soft output and an ideal round catchlight in the eyes of your subject.
The LunaGrip adds essential portability and convenience to any on-location or in-studio speedlight photography setup. While providing instant off-camera flash modification, the LunaGrip can also act as an easy-to-use mounting option for reflectors. This handle features a built-in ⅜”-16 thread for effortless mounting to light stands or tilter brackets.
The LunaGrip is available separately ($89.90 USD) or in a cost-effective kit featuring a 40” 5-in-1 Reflector ($119.90 USD). To learn more about LunaGrip and find authorized Westcott retailers, please visit ow.ly/OZ8Tk
