We are very excited today to announce a brand new light modifier done by our sister company – Spiffy Gear. It is called The Light Blaster™.
The Light Blaster (or Blaster for short) is a unique light modifier that enables you to project an image onto a subject or a background. Imagine that, the ability to create a new world at the click of a shutter.
It is small, portable and and only requires a speedlight and any SLR lens to work. Things you already probably have. We’ve designed a high quality product specifically built to keep costs at a minimum while pushing the creative potential to the maximum! The advantage of having an interchangeable lens means that you can simply switch up the focal length to achieve different results: 35mm to blast an entire wall, 200mm to paint a heart on a chest.
Here is where you get one, right here!
The Blaster has a a specific groove for good ol’ 35mm framed slides, but it can also accept unframed slides (or negatives) and home printed transparencies cut to specific sizes (you can download a template on the site), and pre-printed transparencies. This opens up a pretty wide variety of creative applications, from using old slides as backdrops, to projecting specific images on models and objects.
Enough words, check out the blaster in action for yourself:
This movie by Benjamin Von Wong explains the concept (and there are more movies in the gallery):
And on a totally different mood, a more romantic shoot, telling a reminiscent story by Jill Rosell
The basic unit for Canon sells for $99 and for Nikon lenses you can buy an additional adapter. You can also buy a Pistol Grip if you think you can get away with wondering the streets and “helping” photographers add a bit of drama to their photos.
Here are some more photographs taken with the Blaster:
And here are some more photos of the Blaster
I’ll probably be sharing more videos and images over the next few days.
