ExpoImaging, creators of the innovative FlashBender 2 shapeable light modifiers for speedlights, has today announced availability of the Rogue FlashBender 2 Mirrorless Soft Box Kit – a versatile and portable new light modifier for photography professionals.
Specifically designed for compact and mirrorless flashes like the Nikon SB500, the Nissin i40 and the Olympus FL-600R, the new FlashBender 2 Mirrorless Soft Box Kit includes a FlashBender 2 Micro Shapeable Reflector and a Micro Diffusion Panel. The kit has been optimised to handle the light output from smaller flash units.
“We’re seeing more and more photographers shooting with these compact new mirrorless camera systems. The advantage of shooting with mirrorless cameras is that everything is smaller and lighter,” said Erik Sowder, ExpoImaging CEO. “We designed the new FlashBender 2 Mirrorless Soft Box Kit to fit the smaller speedlights often used with these mirrorless cameras.”
When used with on-camera flash, the FlashBender 2 Micro Reflector creates a larger, softer light source than the bare flash and allows directed bounce off ceilings or walls. Off-camera, it can be used to shape and control the main, background, hair, rim, or accent lights.
Once the Micro Diffusion Panel is attached, the Rogue FlashBender 2 Mirrorless Soft Box softens light, while reducing contrast and specular highlights.

- Fits Nikon SB-500, Nissin i40, and Olympus FL-600R flashes
