  • World’s first AI Bounce does the thinking for you

    AI Bounce or Auto Intelligent bounce, calculates and moves the flash head automatically to optimize lighting angles for outstanding images

  • Why bounce flash?

    Direct flash can cause harsh lighting and shadows behind your subject. Bouncing flash off ceilings or walls delivers softer, more evenly distributed light
