Hi all,

I am looking to invest in some diffusion panels for interior photography, something that I can fit into my car that can be clamped with a knuckle or magic arm. Preferably 3x6 or 3x5. Anyone know of anything like this? Also, is something made like this that can easily be turned a white bounce on location (with an extra fabric velcro'd or something) -- not entirely necessary, just curious. I'm wondering if I might be better off building something. Thanks for any input.

I've made a few 4'x4' frames from thick wall PVC piping, painted flat black(mostly to look more professional when around clients/customers who know what 1" ID PVC pipe is, but when its black, they think its 'cool' Wink...

I made mine with elastic bungee cord inside, so they 'snap' together easily. I can use standard sized 4x4 sheers/scrims/nets,etc... Ones I don't own, but need, I can rent.

And  the frames are light enough to be easily handheld ALL DAY by an assistant or in a pinch, a MUA or stylist if no asst is available

Do a search on the B&H website (bhphotovideo.com) for Scrim Jim made by Westcott. This is a great system of lightweight aluminum frame sections that fit together to make different sizes  (42inx42,42x72, 72x72 etc). There are fabrics with different amounts of diffusion as well as silver and white, which velcro onto the frames. Hope this helps!

Try Photoflex.  I've used them for years.  They fold down very nicely and the whole thing (plastic supports, etc.) doesn't weigh much.  Great for interiors/studio but the supports really don't work well for outside unless unless you buy the aluminum ones.

Good luck,
Brian

If you are planning on using this professionally  I would look at Chimera or Matthews.
