I want to get a snoot for my monolight/backlight that I use a gel with, so it does not bounce any light back to my subject. I have zero experience with snoots. The snoot sold by Hensel for my Hensel monolight is $118, and I see others from Impact going for $30.
1. Are snoots generally universal with all monolights? Should you stick with snoots from the light manufacturer? OR can I get the Impact one or any other model?
2. Anything in particular I should be looking for?
3. Any downsides to using a snoot?
Thanks in advance.
