The Bones & Spiders Macro Diffuser V2 „Pro“
A good macro diffuser is probably the most important accessory to get fantastic picture results. With the „Bones & Spiders“ macro diffuser, you always have the perfect light with you, no matter what lighting conditions are waiting for you in the nature.
The „Bones & Spiders“ macro diffuser not only offers a very soft light, it also has a lot to offer in terms of functionality and design. The reflector consists of two acrylic sheets. On the top is a large 3d chrome emblem with the stylish wolf spider head logo, the bottom of the reflector is mirrored.
The diffuser fits perfectly on the respective adapter ring and sits at the very front of the lens, so the functionality of the lens is not hindered.
There is a practical „Velcro“ connection between the diffuser and the reflector, so that the diffuser is held in position and cannot fly away even in strong winds.
The macro diffuser set is very flat and fits well in the special carrying case.
This light is expected with the diffuser. Here is a selection of pictures that I have already taken with the „Bones & Spiders“ diffuser:
Measurements and Weight
Reflector: length 22 cm, width: 24 cm
Diffuser (for flash): height: 20 cm, width: 30 cm
Bag: length: 36 cm, width: 26.5 cm
The complete diffuser set including bag has a weight of 500 grams.
What is included?
The „Bones & Spiders“ macro diffuser set consists of a reflector, a diffuser, an adapter ring suitable for the desired lens and a nylon storage bag. An instruction manual will be available as a PDF download.
Thanks to the rubber band, the reflector fits all standard flashes, e.g. the Yongnuo 560 Speedlite.
The diffuser fits on the desired lens with an adapter ring.
Please specify the lens or filter thread when ordering!
Update: The V2 diffuser now has a special guide on the reflector for the flash. When ordering, please tell me the width of the flash so that I can fit the reflector accordingly.
Price: 119 euros, plus shipping costs.
Where is it available?
The „Bones & Spiders“ macro diffuser set can be ordered exclusively from me and not in the „Bones & Spiders“ online shop.
The diffuser can be ordered by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please use „order macro diffuser“ as subject.
The Bones & Spiders Macro Diffuser is specially designed for use with a system camera and a external flash. If you have a DSLR, the light output of the Diffuser might not be as good as you’d hope. That is because a DSLR mostly has a fold-out flash or at least one indicated in the form of a hump on the Camera top. Due to this hump, the external flash sits significantly higher on the top of the Camera.
The reflector cannot direct the the flash light to the diffuser as effectively as is the case with a system camera without this hump.
If you have a DSLR and still want to use the Bones & Spiders Macro Diffuser, we recommend ordering the focus help accessory set. This directs the light better to the diffuser and you even save about one power level of the flash with the strongest setting of the focus help.
The diffuser is built or final assembled by me in small series. Minor signs of wear and deviations in the material properties are production-related.
