Review: MagMod MagSnoot Modifier

Overview : The MagSnoot is a versatile modifier that instantly collapses into 4 different stages to give you 4 unique beam patterns for precise control over your light. With its integrated gel slot, the MagSnoot can also hold up to 2 MagMod gels to further control the color, density, or hue of your flash.

The MagSnoot delivers never-before-seen versatility from such a simple design thanks to its singular molded rubber construction that is compact, flexible, and highly durable. Product, commercial, and portrait photographers now rejoice.

*A MagGrip is required to use with your flash*

Features :
  • 5-in-1 modifier gives you precision control combined with an integrated gel slot
  • Collapsible design delivers precise control with 40°, 20°, 15° and 13° beam patterns
  • Flexible rubber construction squeezes into tight spaces in your bag
  • Integrated gel slot holds up to 2 MagMod gel sheets
  • Instantly magnetizes to almost any size flash using our patented MagGrip design
  • Simple, beautiful design that has no straps or accessories that can get lost
  • Doubles as a durable funnel if you need to change your motor oil in a pinch!

Quality/Usability : The MagMod MagSnoot was a late add-on to the Kickstarter campaign that was for the MagSphere and MagBounce. Snoots offer a more directional control of light.

How does the MagSnoot compare to the MagGrid?
Both the MagGrid and MagGel Slot will continue to be a staple in any photographer’s bag, as they are far more compact and quicker to use. They both require less thinking and tinkering when shooting in fast paced environments, and if you own multiple MagGrids and MagGel Slots, you also increase redundancy and flexibility in your modifier kit.

The MagSnoot will primarily be best suited for commercial photographers that shoot product, food, fashion, or wherever any photographer needs tight precision with their lighting. Studio and portrait photographers will also find it incredibly handy for use as a great hair-light or rim-light modifier.

With the comparison out of the way, let's take a look at the MagSnoot.

Nothing much is included with the MagSnoot other than the MagSnoot itself and a carry case.

The MagSnoot collapses into a portable size. The back houses two neodymium magnets that allows you to attach the MagSnoot to the MagGrid.

There are four levels. With each collapse, the MagSnoot delivers precise control with 40°, 20°, 15° and 13° beam patterns.

Conclusion : Overall, the MagMod MagSnoot Modifier offers a lot of control of how much light and beam pattern you would want. The use of neodymium magnets makes using any of the MagMod system easy.
