WESTCOTT – LUNA GRIP Released

Westcott Luna Grip

 

Westcott have released the very clever new Luna Grip, speedlite to diffusion disc holder, designed by photographer Kevin Kuboto.

No longer is holding a speedlite and diffuser disk a 2 person job. And traditional shoot through umbrellas are suddenly looking very unrefined compared to the clean unobstructed flat surface the Luna Grip and diffusion disc provide.

The new Luna Grip provides a speedlite hotshoe mounting bracket with easy to grip handle, and a threaded mounting point in the base for light stand mounting as well.

And three fiberglass rods are adjustable to hold diffusion discs or reflectors from 20″ to 42″ diameter.

The Luna Grip provides an adjustable speedlite bracket with clamping coldshoe included. And large handle for easy hand holding.

And there is a 1/4″ 20 threaded mounting hole in the base of the handle for attaching to light stands or umbrellas swivels etc.

The Luna Grip rod ends use simple hooks…

And simply clip onto the metal outer ring of the diffusion disc or reflector.

Luna Grips fiberglass rods are also made in 2 pieces so that they can collapse to a short length for transport and storage. Fitting into a small carry bag not much larger than the folded diffuser.

Designer Kevin Kuboto discusses the new Luna Grip in the short video below.

 

 

 

The Westcott Luna Grip are available on their own, to use with your own diffuser disc or reflector. Or as a kit with a 40″ 1-stop diffuser disc included.

For the many location portrait and wedding photographers, who generally carry a diffuser disc anyway, the Luna Grip may be one of the smartest new tools to become available.

 

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

 

The Westcott Luna Grip are available now from $89, or $119 for the kit including a 40″ 1-stop diffuser disc.

    Didnt wescott file for bankruptcy? Or was it metz? Some veteran company just closed shop. Shame.

    I just bought a 60×90 brolly softbox from ebay for $30 shipped. I guess with the hard economy people are looking for less expensive alternatives. Im guessing why the 3rd padty flashes sell so well

      Hi Nevel,

      Photoflex in the USA and Metz in Germany both had financial issues, though both have also been purchased by new owners and continue business.

      Keep in mind many products like this would not exist if someone did not put a lot of time and development money in to make them a reality to start with.

    This almost makes sense, except an umbrella/holder/stand can be had for under 30 dollars. I like the concept, but the price is extremely steep.

    not sure i understand. what makes this any better than a simple shoot through umbrella?
    I also would imagine you would run into complications when using this mod to light a larger group. when the light isnt so close to the subject some of the direct flash will illuminate the ends of the group resulting in a weird opposite vignette..

      The Luna Grip isn’t really meant for large groups. Maybe 3 people max.

    The advantage this item has over a $30 umbrella stand is that the Luna Grip is easy for a newbie assistant to reposition throughout a photo shoot.

    But I agree, $90 is a bit much in an industry with incredibly shrinking profit margins.
