I bet bare flash is even lighter, and puts out even MORE light :)

I like the MagMod idea, but these tupperware mods...?

His and Her's? MagCondom and MagDiaphram!

Have they made a Mag better beamer yet?

The synthetic matter is not big deal to me. Odds are most of our lights and cameras are made of plastic and rubber too, including the little port flaps.

Can't be worse than 580 EXii that's big and black ... still made with plastic

I just read about this for the first time yesterday, and some video examples show reasonably good results.

It's lighter then the GF and puts out 2 stops more light so longer battery life.

This was one of the most significant things I learned about this modifier yesterday. For my needs, that matters a lot. Whether for battery life or recycle time of the flash unit.

Personally, the GF function (which is a rewarmed version of the stroboflex) doesn't add value for me, but if it did, the system seems well designed for efficiency. Add in the easy on and off gels, grids, etc and this could be handy for the person who needs it. A few moments saved putting it on and off when running and gunning is worth a lot.

What looks more interesting to me is the magbeam option, which extends the power and range and allows for gobo projection.

All this should be taken for what it is--pure speculation ;). A friend really likes the system, but I haven't bothered to use it for pictures (just played with putting it on and off).
