ExpoImaging Announces The Rogue Grid
When the ExpoImaging Rogue Flashbenders came out they very quickly became one of my favorite light modifiers. I have demoed them at numerous locations and I know a lot of people have bough them based on my recommendation. For all they do, the one thing that kind of bugs me is when trying to use them as a snoot since the Velcro patches are pretty small and its hard to get a really round shape. ExpoImaging has come up with a really unique solution with the new 3-in-1 stacking honeycomb grid. Continue reading for the complete press release.
INTRODUCING THE ROGUE GRID: A 3-IN-1 STACKING HONEYCOMB FLASH GRID THAT PROVIDES 16Ëš, 25Ëš and 45Ëš SPOT LIGHTING CONTROL IN A COMPACT DESIGN
The Rogue Grid from ExpoImaging provides three honeycomb grid angles in a compact circular design weighing less than 4 ounces and measuring just 3.6â€ x 1.2â€
Watsonville, Calif. â€” March 21, 2011 â€” ExpoImaging, Inc.,Â which markets, designs, manufactures and distributes innovative camera accessories to the photographic market, today announced availability of the Rogue Grid, the newest addition to its Rogue FlashBender product line.
The patent pending Rogue Grid is uniquely designed to produce three different honeycomb grid angles. A 25Ëš grid and a 45Ëš grid align and stack to create a 16Ëš grid, producing three distinct levels of spot lighting control in a compact and lightweight package.
The durable Rogue Grid securely attaches to almost all standard shoe mount flashes using the included adjustable tension strap.Â Weighing just 3.5 ounces, the versatile Rogue Grid comes with a small nylon pouch that stows easily in a photographerâ€™s camera bag.
The gridâ€™s innovative modular design allows for easy changing of grid angles or the addition of lighting gels. The Rogue Grid is designed to work with the popular Rogue FlashBender reflectors as it fits securely into the end of snooted reflectors.
â€œAs we showed with the Rogue FlashBenders, our goal is to create innovative andÂ Â versatile tools that are durable and well-constructed,â€ said Erik Sowder, CEO of ExpoImaging, Inc. â€œThe 3-in-1 Honeycomb Rogue Grid continues that mission by providing more light control while saving space in photographersâ€™ gear bags. No other grid is this flexible or, I think, as cool-looking as the Rogue Grid.”
When attached to a light source, a honeycomb grid creates a spot of light with a gradual fall-off useful for adding dimension and depth to an image, or for highlighting important features.Â When attached to an accent or background light, grids help draw attention to an object, texture, or color, and can help to create a desired atmosphere or mood.Â The angle of the grid determines the size of the spot projected forward, with smaller degree grids producing smaller spots, and larger angles producing larger spots.
Pricing and Availability
The Rogue Grid is available now through ExpoImagingâ€™s distribution partners worldwide, or online atwww.expoimaging.com,Â for $49.95.
