SensorScope DSLR Camera Sensor Inspection Device in Extra Capacity Travel Bag

The new Safari Flash Booster from Rogue extends the range of your pop-up flash.

Photographers often tell me that the pop-up flash on their camera is of limited usefulness because the range is so limited ( about 14 feet max) …but now the good folks at Rogue have created a solution to this long-standing problem; The Safari flash booster. Operating on the same principle as the Fresnel lens found in light-houses, the lens on the front of the unit concentrates the light from the flash and focuses it in a strong narrow beam as far as 60 feet away. The Safari Flash Booster is designed to work with crop-sensor (APS-C/DX) Canon and Nikon DSLRs. While the Rogue Safari Pop-up Flash Booster is compatible with the vast majority of modern DSLRs.
