CN-16 LED Modeling light for a Speedlight
5 months ago

I’ve been looking at Speedlights with modeling lights for my Still Life photography.

Unfortunately Flashes with dedicated Modeling lights, like the Nikon SB910 and the Metz mecablitz 58 af-2 are very expensive, especially if I was to buy two, which is why I have looked into this little Neweer CN 16 LED Panel thingy that hooks around the Flash head: http://www.lightingrumours.com/cn-16-led-aftermarket-modelling-light-for-your-flash-4848

I could use this with cheaper Speedlights, such as Yongnuo, Metz or Nissin .

I think I could pick UP  the CN-16  really cheap on ebay.

I was wondering if you guys think this LED light would make a decent Speedlight modeling light? Would you know of any Speedlight softboxes that could fit around this?

I have a feeling that I could wrap a snoot around the flash and still put this on and hopefully still use a grid. If I cannot find any Softbox for this, I have DIY diffuser panels and maybe I can create some other DIY accessories if need be.

Thanks,

D.
