The new artistic attachment for your speedlight

Harbor Digital Design Quick Spot Review

The Harbor Digital Design Ultimate Lightbox system was the first flash diffuser system I ever used.

I still find it incredibly useful today with the main lightbox for grand scale flash and the smaller diffuser for more intense, direct light.

Now Harbor Digital have added a new accessory to their line up, the Quick Spot Honeycomb spot diffuser that comes with two sizes of grid holes 1/4" and 1/8"...

It is a simple attachment and very easy to use just like the rest of their systems and they also come with a range of colour gel filters for special effects. I have had a play with these and can see how they could come in very handy for various things:

  • Classic or artistic spotlight portraits
  • Classic or artistic spotlight portraits
  • Pinpoint fill in flash outdoors
  • To create special backdrop effects using them off camera

Use off camera in a number of other ways including rear spotlight fill for portraits

Without the need for studio lights and barn doors

  • Product photography

Here are a few (very quick) sample shots to show you the difference with each diffuser (click for larger images):

Harbor Digital Design Quick Spot Prices:

Prices start at just $34.95 with your choice of honeycomb size. If you already have the adapter from a previous purchase, you can save yourself $12 and just buy the honeycomb spot grid. The gel pack is extra and includes red, blue, yellow, green, 1/2 CT orange and cosmetic pink.

I don't know where these are being sold any more. B & H Photo Video might...
