It features doors that open to allow for 80 percent ceiling bounce with 20 percent reflector bounce; the doors can be closed completely to get 100 percent unit surface bounce when a ceiling is too high or would adversely affect color cast. The LumiQuest Quik Bounce attaches to the flash unit with the aid of a touch fastener or an optional Cinch Strap.
