Attaching LumiQuest

LumiQuest accessories modify and improve the quality of light in a variety of different ways under a variety of different circumstances.

The basic attachment to your flash is the same for each modifier; but, operation and function varies considerably. All of our devices have two distinct personalities: folded flat in your bag and the three dimensional, consistent, predictable, rigid position when attached to the flash.

You will almost certainly benefit from the 20 or so tutorial videos on our website, but feel free to call us if you have further questions.

LumiQuest accessories are mounted to your flash as indicated below. Individual products include self-adhesive Velcro®.

The Kits include at least one UltraStrap. It’s important that you stretch the strap to it’s full length before wrapping it around your flash for secure non-adhesive attachment to your flash.

Generally, our bounce devices are attached at a 45° angle to the lens of the flash and the softboxes are attached with the diffusion material in the same plane as the lens of the flash.

All of our SoftBoxes attach to the four sides of the flash as indicated below. The only slight variation is in the case of the original SoftBox (LQ-107). It has two tabs on the bottom of the flash to form the “V” to avoid blocking the sensors on the flash.

While most of our light modifiers have one “installed” position and operate very intuitively, several require further explanation.

The FXtra includes 8 popular theatrical and color correction gels. It is sized for Rosco and Lee sample packs as well as the Strobist Kit, you will notice that the gels are likely wider than your flash, simply trim them to fit. Also notice that there is loop Velcro on the outside of the FXtra to enable you to install other LumiQuest on top of it.

The Snoot XTR isolates the light to approximately 10° and can telescope to approximately 5° with the included XTR tube.

The Quik Bounce:

The LumiQuest Quik Bounce is designed for event, wedding and other fast moving photographic situations. The Quik Bounce transitions easily from 100% bounce to 80% ceiling bounce with 20% fill by simply opening or closing the built in doors as circumstances change. In addition, the Quik Bounce transitions instantly from horizontal to vertical with most tilt swivel flashes.
