The "Better Beamer"
The Better beamer is a necessary addition to a bird\nature photographers kit. It increases the light output and reduces the recycling time of the flash. Covering it in is required to prevent heat damage. For hard core photographers who shoot often with a Beamer a dedicated boxed in semi permanent cover is best. For part time shooters a cover that can be assembled and removed quickly works well. I cover this topic in more detail in my flash workshops. Flash workshops
The Better Beamer flash extender is available from Naturescapes.net
tip: order a spare fresnal lens!
