The Pixapro® EF-Mount Optical snoot, together with canon EF or EF-S lenses, enables you to project patterns onto your subject or background, to produce creative or cinematic effects with your strobe or LED studio light. This is the ideal tool for any photographer or cinematographer, who like to get creative with their lighting. Perfect for fashion, beauty, portrait, food, and product photographers. It is also a great tool for filmmakers.
Compatible with Canon EF Lenses
Unlike most optical snoot projectors, the EF-Mount Optical snoot can be used in conjunction with any Canon EF or EF-S mount lenses, giving you the option of using either wide-angle lenses (for projections that cover a wide area) or telephoto lenses (for smaller, more controlled projections).
The EF-Mount Optical snoot has a wide range of gobos available for it, which enable you to project different shapes and patterns onto your background or subject. You can focus or de-focus the light to produce softer or sharper projections, depending on the type of look you are trying to achieve. It can also be used in conjunction with coloured gels for creative effects.
The EF-Mount Optical snoot features an interchangeable speedring, which enables it to be used with a variety of different flash brands, including Bowens, Elinchrom, Broncolor, and Profoto (please view compatibility table below for more information).
Tips and Recommendations
Although the EF-mount optical snoot can be used with any Canon EF or EF-S mount lenses, to get the best results, we recommend using fast prime lenses with a maximum aperture of about f/2.8 or wider (such as a 50mm or 85mm f/1.8). using lenses with smaller max. apertures will result in dimmer projections.
The Optical Snoot is the ideal tool for any photographer or cinematographer who likes to get creative and add mood with their lighting, which can range from fashion, portrait, editorial and product photographers.
