The Fstoppers FlashDisc has become one of the most popular off camera flash modifiers on Amazon and BH Photo. Many of our readers have been asking for international shipping, and I am excited to announce that the FlashDisc is now available through the Amazon.co.uk store. This means anyone in living throughout the European Union can have the FlashDisc shipped to their country without having to pay for expensive shipping from the US.
It's been incredibly rewarding to read the reviews and emails from photographers around the world telling us how helpful our little strobe light modifier has been for them. Lee and I have been using this modifier for the last 7 years of our wedding careers. While I knew how handy and useful this tool was for on location shoots and fast paced photo events, I never imagined how many photographers would adopt it into their own bag of lighting tricks. Some of the photos people have emailed us while using the FlashDisc have been absolutely beautiful.
If you are not familiar with the FlashDisc, you can read about it on our main FlashDisc page. Basically this collapsible light modifier is the perfect solution for softening the light coming out of your off camera speed light. While it will not necessarily replace a large 3'x4' softbox, it does change the quality of light enough to make your headshots, bridals, dance photos, and family portrait photographs look significantly better when setting up large studio lights is not a viable option. Also because of its thin profile, the FlashDisc is much easier to use in crowded situations than large light modifiers like softboxes and octaboxes. This makes it perfect for wedding receptions, busy night clubs, and even small studio spaces where you still need soft light but do not have room for cumbersome studio softboxes.
Manufacturing something like the FlashDisc has been indefinitely more difficult than I would have ever imagined when we first decided to make this product available to the public 3 years ago. We are excited to open up the European market, and in time, we hope to make the FlashDisc available in even more markets around the world. Thanks for everyone who has encouraged us to move forward with our first ever tangible product, and we would like to thank everyone who has made it possible for us to continue to offer the FlashDisc to the public in large quantities.
