7 years ago I created a portable softbox that could fit in my pocket while I shot weddings. Three years ago, Patrick and I attempted to patent that idea and bring the product to market. In December of 2013, we put our first 1,000 units up for sale on Fstoppers and sold out within 24 hours. 10 months later we finally have our second order of 5,000 units and they are currently up for sale on Amazon.
The product actually went on sale late last night without us knowing. We have been producing before and after images using the FlashDisc and a video that goes over all of the potential uses but neither of them are quite ready yet. This post is for those of you who have been waiting patiently for our stock to get replenished and you already know exactly what it is.
This particular version (we are calling it version 2) is a slight upgrade from the original. The overall build of the product is slightly better and the sides are more reflective so light will not spill as easily.
We are still trying to figure out international shipping. Apparently, if we want to ship our product to another country via Amazon, we must pay to have our product held in a warehouse in that country. As you can imagine this is incredibly complicated and expensive. If you really want the product right now and you don't live in the USA, I highly suggest the website www.myus.com. You can ship the product from Amazon to them, and they will ship it to you anywhere in the world.
We will be posting more about the FlashDisc as we finish our promotional material so stay tuned!
You can buy the FlashDisc right now at Amazon, and if you already have one, we would really appreciate a review on our products Amazon page.
