THE ULTIMATE COMPACT STROBE FOR COMPACT CAMERAS

Lightweight, compact, easy to use, easy for travel. These are the reasons why everyone wants a compact camera. With the Backscatter Mini Flash, now there is a flash to match. Small in size, but big on power, the Backscatter Mini Flash has enough juice to light most of the scenes compact cameras are used for. From macro and fish portraits to wide subjects like stingrays, turtles, and reef scenes, it’s a great all-around strobe to keep your rig nice and compact, and easy to use.

Plus with the bright LED focus lights built-in and optional Optical snoot and color filters for creative lighting, this is a strobe with professional-level macro capability you’ll never outgrow.
