The perfect size.
This 48" square diffuser if our most popular size as it offers a large surface area that can still easily be handheld.

Shadows be gone.
Many times when photographing a subject outdoors, harsh overhead sunlight causes heavy shadows to appear on the face. These can quickly and easily be diffused by placing a diffuser between the subject and the sun.

Eliminate reflections.
Placing a diffuser between a reflective product and your light source will soften unwanted highlights and harsh reflections.

Fight harsh sunlight.
This 2 stop diffuser is ideal for diffusing harsh sunlight in mid afternoon. This means you will be diffusing the light by two stops and can be measured by use of a light meter.

Square beats round.
Why are our diffusers square? Simple. They provide more surface area than a traditional round diffuser ultimately giving you more surface area to work with. As an added bonus, they won't roll away when not in use!

Purity at its finest.
Unlike many photographic diffusers found on the market, Westcott's diffusers are manufactured using a pure white fabric to insure no shift in color temperature. The light color going into the diffuser is the same light color that will go out of it.

Sets up in a snap.
With literally a flick of the wrist, these diffusers open effortlessly within seconds. They can easily be handheld or mounted using an optional reflector arm and light stand.

Perfect for on-location.
Take on location, throw in a backpack or tuck under your shoulder, diffusers are lightweight and simply fold down to 1/3 their open size and fit into a convenient storage travel case.

Lifetime frame warranty.
Our double riveted sprung steel frames utilize the highest quality materials and offer a lifetime warranty. Compare this to many hand-clamped styles that will wear down over time.
