ACAP Color Caps - Cloth covers in 7 different colors

These colorful fabric covers are designed to fit any five to six inch reflectors and use elastic to stay on the front of the reflector. They cast a very even and smooth broadcast of colored light due to the thin cloth diffusion material. The colors can be seen in the photo as all kits are the same selection.

Color Caps just slip on the front of the reflector.  While they can work with grids and other diffusors in place, they are often used just over the open front of a reflector.  Each of the colors has a different level of light loss to accompany the shift in color.

While a gel set allows the light to go straight through it and just shift the color, the ACAP Color Caps provide ample diffusion to soften the light and create a much softer light in addition to the color shift.  This is particularly pleasant on both our subjects when we want to create effect and on our backgrounds for separation or mood.

While it is possible to use the modeling light when the cap is on, and that might make it easier to place it and see the effect, prolonged use of the modeling light should be avoided as the heat is forced right out of the end of the modeling flashtube against the cloth and could damage the center of the cloth cap.


I find these Color Caps especially useful when shooting pictures inside someone’s home.  I don’t want my picture to be a snapshot of what they see every day.  By applying a colored light to a slightly under exposed background I can enhance the wall with several shades of color and effects.  Then, when they see the images, the colored background always amazes them.

Don’t be normal, be amazing… Color Caps might help.

ADC2 Diffusor Cover / UV Filter - Cloudy

This is one of two diffusors that simply snap onto the silver 5" reflectors that we have made for about 45 years. This version is the more cloudy diffusor that will lose almost an f-stop as it considerably softens and diffuses the light going through it. Some UV light is absorbed as well so the light is softer and warmer than when direct from the reflector.

HC20 Straight 20 Foot Head Cable

The Straight Head Cable HC20 is about 20 feet long and has a male end that plugs towards the Power Pack and a female end that matches with the male plugs on the Flash Heads. Thats about six meters long. This is the longest cable we offer and is a suitable way to extend the Head's built-in cable by an extra twenty feet or to use a twenty foot cable directly to the male plug on the Signature Series Heads.
