Lightscoop® is a smart low-tech device that creates soft, flattering light by
redirecting your camera’s pop-up flash to a ceiling or wall.
Don’t let your convenient little pop-up flash ruin your photos with evil red eye, ugly shadows, hot spots, bleached out faces, underexposed colors, and blurry movement that exist only in your photographs, not in the real world.
Slip a Lightscoop® on your camera and never miss out on another fabulous picture! Lightscoop creates soft, natural light and lets you capture the scene the way you see it.
How it Works
Simply slip the Lightscoop® over your SLR camera’s pop-up flash, follow the easy camera set-up steps, and immediately transform the ugly direct light from your tiny pop-up flash into pro-quality light. Professor Kobré’s Lightscoop® lets you use professional photography techniques without having to buy or learn to use expensive extra lighting equipment.
Redirecting the small light from your camera’s pop-up flash to the ceiling creates a larger source of light that also comes from a natural direction (rather than from the middle of your forehead). Softer, more diffused light coming from a natural direction will instantly improve your photos. Turning the camera vertically to direct the flash to a light-colored wall will create the kind of directional “window” light that is the hallmark of an interesting professional photograph. Plus, using the flash will stop blur from subject or camera movement.
So many creative options! You’ll start to LOVE your pop-up flash — and your friends will think you hired a pro!
[Note that the Lightscoop does not replace fully-featured and more powerful tilting external flashes for advanced or professional photographers who need them. That’s a whole other class of equipment.]
