The Better Beamer is a flash extender.  It secures to the head of the Canon 580II flash with Velcro band. By using a Fresnel lens in front of the flash beam, the Better Beamer will add approximately 2-stops of light output to your flash by concentrating the flash pattern. It is suggested that Better Beamer be utilized on telephoto lenses of 300mm in focal length and longer.  It folds flat for easy storage.  The only cons about this item are that sunlight can be magnified in reverse (which can burn up your flash) and the Fresnel lens is somewhat fragile and will break after a few years of use when utilizing regularly in the field.
