When you need a little illumination from the great nuclear strobe in the
sky, Sunbounce’s Sun-Mover is a compact reflector with an adjustable
design, allowing you to alternate between a convex or concave shape.
The Mover is two-sided, with a different color reflector on each side.
With the newly released Tight-Fit-Screen you can now add a third color
option to the Mover. Sunbounce says that while the Tight-Fit-Screen sits
“like a second skin” on the Mover, it won’t compromise the reflector’s
tension. Tight-Fit-Screens are available in Zig-Zag Silver, Zig-Zag Gold
and, in keeping with the celestial theme, Black-Hole.

The Glow ParaPop
38 (right) is a
softbox that creates a
105-degree spread of
light. It’s an ideal key or
fill light for both studio or
environmental portraits. The
12-sided shape and parabolic
profile of its 38-inch diameter
and 16.5-inch depth will ensure
that the photons streaming from
your flash land evenly from edge
to edge. It packs down quickly
thanks to jointed positioning
rods that lock with a simple click
into the dedicated speed ring.
It earns its “pop” moniker by the
popping sound you’ll hear when
you collapse the softbox using twin
safety tabs. Adorama promises that
setting up the ParaPop will take
3 minutes the first time you take it
out of the box, while collapsing it
takes a mere second.
Rogue 32” 2-in-
One side of this
(below) has a silver lining
which provides a bright,
medium-contrast quality to
reflected light without being
overly harsh, as can happen
with shinier silver reflectors.
Flip it around for a natural
white lining, which delivers a
more neutral light—whether
from the sun or a flash.
The NEO is a dimmable LED that can be used
on or off camera. It offers a Color Rendering
Index (CRI) of 95+ and has an adjustable
color temperature (3200-6300K). It can
deliver 1077 Lux at 3 feet, but what really
distinguishes the NEO, aside from the high
quality of light it’s emitting, are the creative
lighting effects it’s able to produce. You can
create custom fades or mimic the look of
lightning, fire, a TV, the police and more.
A feature dubbed True Aperture Dimming
helps you calculate the correct f-stop
for your subject depending on their
distance. Six AA batteries will keep the
NEO lit for 3 hours.
Light and Motion Stella PRO 5000
This battery-powered LED can deliver up to 90 minutes of run
time on a single charge. The 5000K light has a CRI of 90 and is
completely waterproof to a depth of 100 meters. It can also survive
a fall from up to 1 meter high. The Stella PRO 5000 can run off AC
power and has a focusable beam of
light that ranges from a 120-degree
spread down to 50 and 25
degrees. It can accept select
modifiers from Profoto, Chimera
and SpinLight for a variety of
light-shaping needs. The price
includes a C-stand, 50-degree
focusing optic, barn doors and
external power supply.
