New Quantum Qflash reflector for UV-IR photography - Not content with using visible light to illuminate a subject, Quantum also want to use invisible light.
The NEW QF80 reflector can be used on all Quantum Qflash T models and is used in conjunction with UV & IR 67mm threaded filters from manufacturers such as B&W & Hoya. Filters are available to produce narrow or broad band wavelengths of flash illumination from Ultraviolet to visible Infrared. These can vary in range from non-visible Ultraviolet (350-400nm) to visible light to non-visible Infrared 700nm and above.
A Qflash fitted with the QF80 reflector and suitable filter provides a powerful and portable light source of UV, IR and visible light for IR-UV sensitive cameras, such as the Fuji IS Pro, and conventional cameras that record visible light.
By using various filters on the QF80 reflector and on the camera lens, photographers can record pure UV effects, UV fluorescence, blue or green visible fluorescence and IR imaging.
Using the QF80 reflector with a suitable filter on the Qflash is easy because it will all four modes of the Qflash operate as normal: Manual, Auto, Stroboscopic & TTL
The Quantum QF80 UV/IR reflector is available now at £51 Vat from Quantum retailers, see www.flaghead.co.uk for details.
