Taking inspiration from the original Briese focusable parabolic reflectors, the BRiHT Zoom Bounce system mounts the strobe unit remotely outside, and to the rear of, the reflector (unlike the indirect mount Broncolor Para etc).
This provides a much more balanced configuration when mounted on a light stand, which should further complement the very lightweight and portable nature of the SMDV fast pop open reflector system.
The BRiHT Zoom Bounce arm simply mounts in between the BRiHT-360 strobe and it’s original plug-in flash tube.
A reflector plate can also then be added, which also cleverly provides a built-in LED modelling light.
The sliding arm allows the position of the flash tube to be adjusted inside the reflector, which effectively changes the size and spread of the light source.
So the one modifier can provide a range of lighting effects, from a small hard light source, to larger diffused light.
The BRiHT Zoom Bounce system is initially available with a 100cm diameter collapsible reflector.
Though the Zoom Bounce arm should also mount into any of the existing SMDV Alpha Speedbox’s (currently available up to 110cm diameter).
Though images also hint to a larger 140cm version likely to come.
