The MagMod MagBeam is a collapsible Fresnel Lens designed for use with your speedlite. Photographers at times would like to get a little more reach and power out of their speedlites. With the MagBeam you can gain up to an extra 2 to 3 effective stops of useable light thanks to its interchangeable Fresnel lens located at the front of the MagBeam. This means more light over a greater distance, and you can also reduce the power of your flash for faster recycle times.
When fully extended, the MagBeam gives you super-focused light with a hard edge, similar to that of a stage spotlight. When collapsed down one or two stages, the MagBeam creates a wider beam pattern while retaining the beautiful shape and crisp edges. It’s like having a Hollywood-style fresnel spotlight that fits in your pocket.
The Magbeam mounts to your flash using Neodymium Rare-Earth Magnets, together with theMagGrip accessory (sold separately). Gone are the days of fighting with Velcro, sticky adhesives, bulky straps and other DIY solutions to secure modifiers to your speelite.
The MagBeam’s collapsible design isn’t just for portability. If collapsed down all the way, and you swap the Tele Lens for Wide Lens, and add one of the MagMask custom-made stainless steel gobos, you’ve transformed your MagBeam into a pattern-projector, which can be used to add interest and creativity to your backgrounds or subjects.
Like everything else in MagMod System, the MagBeam can be used in combination with other MagMod accessories, such as the MagGel system.
Please Note: MagGrip Accessory is required to mount the MagBeam to your speedlite.
2 to 3 stops brighter than your bare flash
Sometimes photographers need more "juice" from their speedlights, and the MagBeam is up for the job. It’s designed to give you up to 2 to 3 effective extra stops of useable light. This means more light at a greater distance, and your flash recycles 4 times as fast. Ya, its a big deal.
Supercharge your flash capabilities
With 2 to 3 stops of brighter light, you can use a faster shutter speed for sharper photographs. Go from 1/50s, to 1/200s, or even 1/400s, or lower your ISO speed to improve your image quality. Go from ISO3200 down to ISO800 or ISO400 will give you a dramatically cleaner image. You know this is huge.
Pattern projecting thing of wonder.
The MagBeam’s collapsible design isn’t just for portability. Collapse it down all the way, swap in a Wide Lens, add a MagMask, and now you’ve transformed it into a pattern-projecting-thing-of-wonder. MagMasks are MagMod’s custom-made stainless steel 'gobos' that create patterns to project through the MagBeam anywhere you want. Sweet huh?
Velcro is for grandma’s shoes. Not for speedlites
Gone are the days of fighting with annoying velcro, sticky adhesives, bulky straps or mad scientist DIY contraptions to secure modifiers to your flash. With two freakishly strong magnets embedded in the MagGrip (sold separately), you can add and remove our magnetic modifiers in an instant. You’ll work more efficiently - and look like the professional you are.
MagMod modifiers are fast. Ninja fast
Each MagMod modifier has been whittled down to its simplest, yet most functional form. You can literally throw a MagMod modifier at your flash and it literally snaps into place, every time. It doesn’t get any faster than this.
Really freaking strong
Your modifiers need to do more than help you take great photos. They become an essential part of your camera bag and need to be able to handle the abuse that comes from the creative process. That’s why MagMod have built their modifiers as a single molded piece of high-quality silicone rubber that is not only incredibly strong, but securely grips your flash. With modifiers built so strong, you can worry less about your light modifiers and focus on what you do best, making incredible photographs.
