    Rogue safari pop up flash extender

    Just picked up a useful little accessory it's a rogue safari pop up flash booster ,its for long telephoto lenses and just fits into your flash gun fitting ,only made for canon or Nikon crop cameras ,a useful tool where you need a long distance fill in flash without the hassle and weight of a full size flash gun set up as it only weighs a few ounces .also comes with adaptors to level the height of the flash area .
    I first looked at these when they initially came out but being from the u.s.a they were overpriced ,however I got this from camera king website in London with free postage and next day delivery for the crazy price of Twelve pounds fifty

    When would you use it jeff? Will it, say, light up a bird hiding in the undergrowth sufficiently to make the photo an OK one? I often find it difficult to photograph little birds that are under trees and shrubs without increasing ISO and then be confronted with noise. The rogue safari pop up might be the answer.

      I used it the other day nat at burton mere ,by the picnic bench by the lake .its very powerful and I had to adjust the inbuilt flash exp comp down a lot but it does the job well ,unfortunately there wasn't enough birds about to give a write up with pics ,but they will follow .
      And the answer then to your question is yes it will work nicely after trial and error for what you want and it only weighs two ounces

        Check the website for compatibility before you buy one Nat. It won't work with your 6d for example.

            Nat uses a crop camera for wildlife and I know only to well that weight is a deciding factor for him .so yes it would suit him

                Thanks folk for your good and timely advice. Much appreciated.I think I will get one for my use with my crop 760D- the one I use for wildlife pics. This has got a pop up flash.

                  just a update as not everyone views the birds section ,heres one from yesterday ,i have now fitted a diffuser made from a plastic milk bottle side ,seems to have toned things down very nicely ,the eyes do take on a strange colour at close range but easily fixed with pet red eye reduction in p/s

                    I have just bought one for a trip to Costa Rica, using a 7D2 + 100-400 mk2 combo and haven't had chance to give a good trial yet. What do you reckon the maximum operable distance would be ?

                      I am sure you will find it very useful. So far I have simply placed my white hanky over the Rogue nad it helps. Will re-start my photography soon.
