Gary Fong Expands Lineup with LightBlade Diffuser & Lightbulb Adapter Kit


New York, NY—GFIP Holdings LLC (Gary Fong) launched an addition to its lineup of flash diffusers with the LightBlade diffuser. The company also announced the Lightbulb adapter kit.

LightBlade Diffuser. Compatible with nearly all speedlight flashes, it’s designed to soften harsh light emitted from the speedlights to minimize shadows and reduce glare while creating more accurate skin tones. The portable, compact size of this combined bounce and shoot-through diffuser makes it a solution for event photography, portraits, interiors and product shots.

“As technology develops and speedlights become increasingly less intimidating to use, speedlight photography is becoming exponentially popular,” said Gary Fong, internationally renowned photographer and CEO of GFIP Holdings LLC. “From novices to pros, photographers expect more freedom to shape their light, and we are committed to providing just that. The versatility of the LightBlade Diffuser is sure to fit the many needs of photographers’ shooting styles and selected gear.”

Developed as a tool for photographers of all skill levels looking to create soft lighting for more flattering images, the diffuser mounts directly onto the flash head and is secured with the included Gary Fong Velcro cinch strap. This allows photographers to shift shooting between a horizontal and vertical orientation without changing the light angle or having to remove the diffuser. $34.95 MAP; $37.95 SRP.

Lightbulb Adapter Kit.
The kit contains a Gary Fong Lightsphere adapter, which secures to a Light Socket adapter with an AC power plug or Europlug. It is compatible with the new Lightsphere Collapsible speed mount and the new SpeedSnoot, fitting any standard-mount light stand. The kit is designed to give users the ability to sculpt studio-quality light at less cost than traditional studio lighting. By taking advantage of the continuous source to pre-visualize the effects of various lighting setups, photographers can create the professional look of a diffused strobe light without the syncing, metering and modeling.

Even beginning videographers will appreciate the ease of use, and professional videographers will benefit from maintaining their light efficiency while capturing soft, true-to-life skin tones. $49.95 MAP; $53.95 SRP.
