Testimonial

“Yes I have a variety of SUNBOUNCE reflectors. But don’t forget the SUN-SWATTER which can be a life saver on location. I have used other knock off reflectors but I keep coming back to SUNBOUNCE because they last! Built to take a beating on location or in the studio!”

Perfect For Big Groups, The Hovering, Contrast Reducing SUN-SWATTER

The SUN-SWATTERs create a shadow that moves synchronously with the actors and models.  The unique SUN-SWATTERs can be recognised immediately because they look like a giant fly swatter hovering over the models. The contrast reducing SCREENs are held by a stable “U” -shaped aluminium frame, which is attached to a holding rod (BOOM-STICK) that can be adjusted in height. This construction provides mobility and a space-creating distance to the object. In mobile applications, the system is carried only by one assistant. A tripod is sufficient for static applications. The smart construction of the SUN-SWATTER is a further development of the SUNBOUNCE CLASSIC 3-D frame. The 3-dimensional “U” ensures that at least one side of the frame does not throw rod shadow.

2/3 Stop Silk

Reduces the contrast more than TRANSLUSCENT -1/3rd and makes wonderfully soft light. Good in combination with reflectors.

The Le Louche system is constructed of a fabric envelope which allows the insertion of different materials to create patterns of light on your subjects. This Le Louche screen is shipped with a clear plastic sheet that is printed with a black pattern of leaves to create a natural effect of mottled light under a tree.

Bobbinet, also known as “Cine-Net”, is used to reduce light intensity and to achieve subtle and creative light effects. The unique hexagonal form of the Bobbinet’s hole refracts the light more evenly than other screens and is therefore the preferred choice of camerapeople. A stronger aperture reduction can be achieved by using double or triple layers of the fabric.

The contrast reducing SCREENs are held by a stable “U” -shaped aluminum frame, which is attached to a holding rod (BOOM-STICK) that can be adjusted in height. This construction provides mobility and a space-creating distance to the object. In mobile applications, the system is carried only by one assistant. A tripod is sufficient for static applications. The smart construction of the SUN-SWATTER is a further development of the SUNBOUNCE’s CLASSIC 3-D frame. The 3-dimensional “U” ensures that at least one side of the frame does not throw rod shadow.

The SUN-SWATTER is available in three sizes from 90 x 125 cm to 180 x 245 cm (3′ x 4′ to 6′ x 8′): MINI: for portraits;  PRO: for full body images; BIG: for groups.
