MagMod would have to be one of the slickest speedlight modifiers created so far. And MagMod appear to run a pretty slick operation as well, actually shipping their Kickstarter campaign orders on schedule as expected.
MagMod Kickstarter orders are starting to ship now. Though if you missed the Kickstarter campaign you can also pre-order now on the MagMod website as well.
In their own words –
“MagMod is the simplest, easiest, strongest, fastest, and sexiest speedlite modifier system for Canon + Nikon hot-shoe flashes, period.”
Though MagMod should work just as well on most speedlites, as the Silicon mount is made flexible to stretch neatly over most speedlite heads.
Being so fast to attach, and durable to carry and store, the MagMod Grids and Gels are likely to be very popular with busy photographers who want to spend less time messing about with fiddly gear, and more time taking pictures.
Even the Gels are nice and thick (but still flexible) so they won’t end up all tattered and torn, or take forever fiddling about trying to slide them into the holders.
Spencer Boerup the man behind MagMod in Tucson Arizona USA, explains the MagMod –

As great as the current Grids and Gels look, something tells me these guys are really just getting started. There’s so much potential for this system, it will be very interesting to see what MagMod come up with next.
