Rogue FlashBender Reflectors can be used with on-camera or off-camera flash photography. Attach a FlashBender to your flash and change its shape to quickly and easily manipulate light and shadow in your image.
FlashBender Reflectors were designed for versatility, and they can be used as bounce flash reflectors, gobos, and snoots to soften, shape and control your main, background, hair, rim, or accent lights.
FlashBender Reflectors are extremely durable. They are hand sewn with custom fabrics, rods and fasteners, and their white reflective surfaces will not alter the color temperature of the flash.

Rogue Large Diffusion Panel
FlashBender Reflectors can be converted into low profile soft boxes by attaching a Rogue Diffusion Panel to the front of the reflector. The resulting FlashBender soft box makes a beautiful main light for portraiture because it softens light while reducing contrast and specular highlights. When configured as a soft box the light becomes more directional than the base reflector alone, effectively eliminating bounced and reflected light.
The Large Diffusion Panel attaches quickly to the FlashBender Large Reflector using hook-and-loop sewn along the edges of each panel.
- Attaches Quickly to FlashBender LARGE Reflector (sold separately)
- Transforms FlashBender LARGE Reflector into a soft box
- Packs Flat / Great for Travel

Ensure Light in Just the Right Spot
If you have a flat, vertical surface, you have a place to mount your speedlight. The SLX secures an off-camera flash directly to any smooth, lightly textured or painted surface such as drywall, veneer, glass, mirror, laminate, fiberglass, metal, tile, porcelain and marble using the included specially-formulated, pressure-activated RapidStrips, which remove without damage, or leaving any residue.
Great for location shoots, the RapidMount SLX combined with Rogue Flash products can uniquely position speedlights to many surfaces – ensuring light in just the right spot.
