Presslite VerteX – fine tune your camera flash output for studio like results


The Presslite VerteX is a small flash unit add-on which provides ‘multi-dimensional’ illumination through the use of a cleverly arranged smoke and multi-mirror arrangement. The idea is for the photographer to twist and twizzle the mirrors into different settings in order to optimise the quality and amount of light hitting their targets. Apparently it will work with just about any standard square type flash unit on the market. Pre-launch price is $34.95 (MSRP $49.95). [Thanks Dan]


  Small in size, lightweight and self-contained, the VerteX can convert between a soft white diffuser and a mirror reflector for full-power bouncing with a quick twist of its dual-surface panels. These panels are instantly adjustable, detachable and interchangeable with one hand. The VerteX makes it possible for wedding and portrait photographers to “steer” light away from obstacles, toward their target. The convenient thumb-shift control enables event photographers to quickly dial in the bounce-to-fill ratio.
