B&H is now accepting order for $45.00. Is anyone ordering or have ordered? Do you think it's worth it?

I was just looking at this. I'm interested in buying it as well.

Thanks, you saved me 20 seconds from searching it out manually... :lol:

I made one of those better bounce cards, haven't used it yet, so I don't think I need this one... :)

I use the Lumiquest ProMax system as if it were a QuikBounce. It's fabulous to be able to swing my Stroboframe bracket between horizontal and vertical and still have the benefit of the ProMax. Until I discovered that I could mount the ProMax sideways and work with the flash head rotated 90 degrees.

Here are a few photos. The first shows the stroboframe in horizontal mode. Notice that the flash has been rotated 90 degrees and the ProMax attached along the short axis of the flash. The second shows how you can then rotate it and use it in vertical mode. This is the basis for the design of the QuikBounce

I just picked one of the 80/20 bouncers up. I also bought the kit which comes with the interchangeable inserts. I'm happy with it.

If you are going to close the flaps then it is the same thing as the pocket bouncer, harsh shadows and pretty directional which is why I gave my pocket bouncer away...

I was going to buy the Pro Max system at my store today but there was none of the velcro stuff to fasten it to the head. Mr, or Ms Shooting is the Pocket Bouncer more harsh than the Sto=Fen defuser?

I'm very excited wcameron to see that you can use it in the portrait position and doesn't the ProMax come with the front diffusion. I don't care what people say, size isn't the only thing that matters when it comes to diffusion, adding something that cuts the direct rays of the lights helps to reduce detail and inherent contrast in a subjects face.

Hey Jannie, I actually got the idea to do this from the Lumiquest website. There is a video on the QuickBounce page that shows the flash used in this way. In fact, it was the tendency of photographers to do this that led them to design the QuickBounce. Here's the link: http://www.lumiquest.c​om/products/quik-bounce.htm (external link).

another follow-up. Since I already have the ProMax System, I emailed Lumedyne to see if all the accessories would be compatible. Here was there reply:

"We've had a number of inquiries regarding ProMax like accessories for the new Quik Bounce. None is on the drawing board, however, it turns out that the ProMax Accessory kit fits the Quik Bounce remarkably well. Obviously not as elegantly as the 80-20, but entirely well enough to function properly."

Might be worth looking into.

If you have nothing to bounce of it's the only way, right? The only way to improve the situation is to increase the size of the refelctor and reduce the distance to the subject.
