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.

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